Wait, What? Did Scarlett Johansson Audition To Be Tom Cruise’s Girlfriend After His Split From Nicole Kidman?
Brendan Tighe, a former Scientologist, went on Megyn Kelly Today on Wednesday and made some pretty outrageous claims.
He told Kelly that he came across reports of multiple women who auditioned to be in a relationship with Tom Cruise following his split from Nicole Kidman.
Tighe said he didn’t know who most of the women were, but he did remember seeing Scarlett Johansson’s name on the audition list. He claims the audition did not go well.
Obviously, auditioning to be Cruise’s (or anyone’s) girlfriend would be pretty pathetic, and Johansson does not seem like the desperate type.
The 33-year-old actress fired back at the reports. She told The Hollywood Reporter that she NEVER auditioned to be Tom’s girlfriend…
“The very idea of any person auditioning to be in a relationship is so demeaning. I refuse for anyone to spread the idea that I lack the integrity to choose my own relationships. Only a man aka Brendan Tighe would come up with a crazy story like that.”
It’s worth mentioning that this isn’t the first time claims like this have come out. In 2012, Vanity Fair reported that Iranian-born actress Nazanin Boniadi was selected to be his new girlfriend…
“Boniadi was audited every day for one month in October 2004 in which she told a ‘high-ranking Scientology official her innermost secrets and every detail of her sex life,’ according to the publication. She and Cruise dated from November 2004 to January 2005.”
I mean, I guess the idea isn’t that crazy. ABC has been doing it with The Bachelor for years.
