And, you will chuckle until your LOL-er is broken because The New York Daily News have an exclusive about Tom Cruise that might just make your day.
Back before the gay rumours, Scientology and the three wives and academy award nominations, Tommy Mapother was a Catholic who flirted with joining the Priesthood before being kicked out of the seminary for stealing booze from the Franciscan Fathers.
