This follows reports earlier this month that claimed that the ‘Mission : Impossible’ star was considering ditching the church, if it meant possibly reuniting with Holmes and his daughter Suri.
“Katie is a sucker for the big romantic gesture,” News.com.au quoted a friend as telling British magazine Grazia. “Tom swept her off her feet the first time around, and if he goes ahead and leaves Scientology for her, that would be seriously tough for her to resist,” the friend said.
Holmes filed for divorce from Cruise in June this year. Since their divorce was finalised, the actor has reportedly been suffering from the lack of contact with his six-year-old daughter.
It is thought Cruise’s connection with the Church of Scientology was one of the contributing factors to their break-up. Holmes, who was raised a Catholic, reportedly didn’t want Suri to be sent to a special Scientology camp, or to be taught at one of the religion’s schools.
“The religion is the biggest thing in his life. If he left that behind for her, it would be immense,” the source said. “But it seems that may be what he’s talking about doing. He misses Suri like crazy,” the source added.
