Tom Cruise, David Beckham & Scientology

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on July 29, 2009 10:57 am

Telluride’s second most famous second-home owner, Tom Cruise has some advice for David Beckham.  Advice from a Scientologist?  Hey, my uncle was a Scientologist for a while, and he did not exhibit signs of complete insanity.  And if Tom’s advice has nothing to do with aliens or paychecks, perhaps you don’t have to throw the bath out with the bath water.

Tom’s advice to the LA Galaxy’s least favorite player?  Engage with your critics!  In this case Tom advised David Beckham to engage LA Galaxy fans, who have not been super-stoked on the English football star since excerpts of Grant Wahl’s new book, “The Beckham Experiment,” were made public.  The book paints Victoria Beckham’s other-half as a disinterested teammate, and Beck’s one-year captainship of the Galaxy is heavily criticized by Landon Donovan.

Engage Donovan, engage the Galaxy’s most boisterous fans, the Riot Squad, but best not to engage in any public critique of Tom’s church.  Beckham said, “We respect their religion. We respect everything they do and believe in.”

Smart move on that one, Becks.  Same goes for me.  Nothing to see here, Mr. Scientology spy dude…
