Lindsay Lohan Was Almost Tom Cruise’s Beard

That expose in Vanity Fair about Tom Cruise’s Scientology bride auditions also had another interesting tidbit. Tom’s wife search included two other actresses: Scarlett Johansson and Lindsay Lohan.

“Lindsay met with Tom before he met Katie,” the magazine reports. “At first, she was super excited to work with Tom and thought it was about a role in Mission Impossible. It soon became clear that he wasn’t looking for an actress but something very different.”

Lindsay’s reps called the report “absurd” and Lindsay even tweeted a strongly worded denial she had any involvement in the VF story. Probably because she’d like to work in Hollywood again and to do that, she has to show the big stars she can keep her mouth shut.

There were already rumors that Scarlett Johansson was one of the girls being considered. Her reps confirmed Scarlett met with Tom and producers around that time but insist it was for a role in one of the Mission Impossible films. If you think about it, that’s what Scientology does to have plausible deniability. And if you really think about it, how much sense would it make for Linsday Lohan to be in a big screen production of Mission Impossible. Scientology should go for something more believable next time. Like clarify she was auditioning for the role of dead villain #3.

Until the first guy to go down on her described it as “sucking mayonnaise through a red brillo pad.” She was out! John Travolta comforted Tom by sucking him off.

lindsay, its called psychological profiling. members of law enforcement use it. it’s like 101 handwriting analysis = body language. someone hired a detective to get at tom. oh! that’s right, he has his own movie production company.

Notice her tweet didn’t deny the story, just that she wasn’t a part of it. HMMMMMMM
