In a statement to CNN, a representative for Tom Cruise denied Vanity Fair’s report that actresses, including General Hospital alum Nazanin Boniadi, went through an audition process to become the next Mrs. Cruise.
"Vanity Fair's story is essentially a rehash of tired old lies previously run in the supermarket tabloids, quoting the same bogus 'sources,'" said Bert Fields, Cruise's attorney. "It's long, boring and false."
The Church of Scientology also pushed back against the magazine article.
In its statement Tuesday, the Church of Scientology said, "there was no project, secret or otherwise, ever conducted by the church to find a bride (via audition or otherwise) for any member of the church. Never. "
