Cruise talks inner peace

HOLLYWOOD star Tom Cruise confided today he had found an “inner-peace” that had helped his relationship with ex-wife Nicole Kidman.
Cruise said the Church of Scientology, based on the philosophies of founder L Ron Hubbard, had guided him to that inner-peace.

“It’s well known I am a Scientologist and that has helped me find that inner-peace in my life and is something that has given me great stability and tools that I use and it’s also something that has helped others,” Cruise told reporters at a press conference in Los Angeles to promote his new film, The Last Samurai.

“In Scientology we study technology that is applied and really enables a person to educate themselves.”

The three-time Oscar nominee said that state of inner-peace had not only helped him with Kidman, but also his girlfriend and Spanish-born actress Penelope Cruz, his two children Isabella and Connor, and his acting career.

“It helps in all areas of my life – as an actor, with my kids, with Penelope, with Nic, with my job,” Cruise, who split with Kidman in 2001, said.

“When you’re happy, life is easier to deal with. It’s not less interesting. It’s definitely challenging and exciting.”

The Last Samurai is scheduled to open in Australia on January 8 and could land Cruise another Oscar nomination. He was nominated previously for Born on the Fourth of July (1989), Jerry Maguire (1996) and Magnolia (1999) but failed to win each time.

The Last Samurai is an epic shot largely in New Zealand at a cost of more than $US100 million ($139.13 million).

The film’s producers flew in 600 actors from Japan to give the movie’s large-scale battle scenes an authentic feel and Cruise had to learn Japanese and study Samurai fighting techniques.

Set in the late 1870s, Cruise plays an alcoholic US Civil War veteran recruited to Japan to train the Japanese emperor’s troops and help wipe out the last surviving samurai.

Penelope has seen an early cut of The Last Samurai! Her opinion about it and about Toms acting:

HOLLYWOOD — When it comes to the talents of her lover Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz is anything but modest.

Cruz has seen an early cut of Tom’s big holiday movie, The Last Samurai, which opens Dec. 5.

Her voice may lack enthusiasm when she talks about the film, but her words do not.
“It’s an amazing movie. It’s Tom’s best work. He’s a great talent and the film is a showcase for that talent,” says Cruz, whose own film Gothika premiers Nov. 21.
