Seth Rogen has never minded having a bit of fun at the expense of Tom Cruise. You may recall that earlier this year, he recounted the time he peed on the actor’s driveway. And now, he’s ready to be his wife.
And you might remember that Vanity Fair has an explosive article in their October issue about Scientology that, among other things, alleges that the organization held “auditions” to find Cruise a suitable partner after his split from Nicole Kidman. As per usual, Cruise’s go-to media mouthpiece/lawyer Bert Fields has released a statement saying: “Vanity Fair’s story is essentially a rehash of tired old lies previously run in the supermarket tabloids, quoting the same bogus ‘sources.’ It’s long, boring and false.”
And while the magazine continues to stand by its story and writer Maureen Orth, Scientology has refuted the piece, saying “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.” And so, long story short, Rogen has now found a way to throw in another jab.
“I have to fire my agent,” Rogen tweeted yesterday. “I wanted to audition to be Tom Cruise’s girlfriend, but she told me it was offer only.” ZING. We guess. In case you’re in the dark, “offer only” is Hollywood-speak for skipping the audition process altogether so, ha ha.
All this to say that Rogen has actually met Cruise, and went to his house. While we’ll have to leave that meeting to our imagination for the most part, we do have Bill Hader imitating Rogen meeting Cruise to David Letterman in what is still our favorite interview segment of anything ever. [EW/THR]
