Along comes a story from Grazia Magazine which is always good for a plausible story. Tom Cruise has been spending time with Laura Prepon. What gives this story some staying power is that Laura is a die hard Scientologist. Other than that do you really see them together? Maybe. Laura is really quiet and secretive and hates people in her personal life. That she even appeared on Cribs blows me away. She hates being too popular or being recognized. I would say she has agoraphobia but I think it is more of a fear of being seen by fans and fans wanting photos and a piece of her time. She likes acting but hates the outcome if something is successful.
This attitude is why I could see her with Tom. Think about Tom's hero David Miscavige. Think about how often you see his wife. Laura would be willing to go into deep hiding and not be seen except when Tom drags her out in public in very controlled circumstances where she just has to smile for a few minutes and then can go back to her safe place.
