While spiralling budgets and delays have sparked major woes for studio chiefs of the latest Mission Impossible film, it is the major lifestyle changes of its star Tom Cruise which have raised the most eyebrows.
The prolific filmmaker – who boasts more than $18 billion in box office takings – has become uncharacteristically reclusive. And most surprisingly of all, he has appeared to drift away from the Church of Scientology.
Cruise has been a member of the controversial religion, founded by American sci-fi author L Ron Hubbard, for decades.

On previous trips to the UK, the Top Gun actor has been a regular at the church’s British headquarters at Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead.
