Katie Holmes spent seven years trapped in a marriage with Tom Cruise who has now reached master levels in the Church of Scientology. Holmes made news when she publicly apologised to Remini who recently opened up about her experience as a part of Scientology and her attempts to escape. Tom Cruise allegedly “freaked out” after this incident.
Well, things are about to get a heck of a lot worse for Scientology at the hand of Holmes, or perhaps the middle-finger of Holmes. Her latest indie film Touched With Fire, is one big endorsement of psychology, which Scientology is known for opposing. According to the film site IMDB, the movie is about two manic depressive poets (Holmes and actor Luke Kirby) who “meet in a psychiatric hospital and begin a romance that brings out all of the beauty and horror of their condition”.
In an interview last week on the Today Show, Matt Lauer asked Holmes if the film was pro-medication since the film seems to show two people who function better when on their meds.
“It also asks the question: is it beneficial to treat these people with drugs,” Lauer began. “And you and I both remember a heated discussion I got into on that subject in this very studio,” he said referencing a 2005 interview with Tom Cruise. to which Holmes told Lauer that the film leaves it to the audience to decide for themselves if medication can help those who might need it.
It’s not surprising that Holmes chose her first major film returning to the big screen to be anti-scientology....
