Tom Cruise reps deny Scientology wife auditions

Tom Cruise's representatives have denied claims that the actor secretly dated Nazanin Boniadi after holding secret 'auditions' with the Church of Scientology to find his next wife.

The Mission: Impossible star was said to have briefly become romantically involved with the Iranian-British beauty in November 2004, a mere five months before he went public with future spouse Katie Holmes.

According to a Vanity Fair article, Boniadi was selected after revealing "her innermost secrets and every detail of her sex life" to a Scientology official in a month-log preparation for meeting Cruise.

However, their romance allegedly finished in January 2005 when Boniadi was deemed to have offended Cruise and another high-ranking member of the Church.

The reports also claimed that she was later punished by Scientology officials for relating the story to a friend.

Responding to the story, a spokesperson for Cruise simply told Gossip Cop: "Lies in a different font are still lies - designed to sell magazines."

It had previously been speculated that Holmes, who reached a divorcement settlement with Cruise in July, was also part of an audition process.
