X17 Exclusive - Katie Holmes Distanced Herself From Scientology In Final Months Of Marriage To Tom Cruise

Jun 29, 2012 03:36 PM

kholmes021512_01_230.jpg Now that Katie Holmes has filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, is it only a matter of time before she cuts ties to Scientology?

Although the Hollywood actress was a dedicated follower of the controversial religion at the beginning of her marriage to the Mission: Impossible star - frequenting the Celebrity Centre at least four times a week - her attendance dwindled as time went on.

Our photographers tell us in the last couple years, the 33-year-old has withdrawn from her husband's faith by cutting back on her once-frequent visits to twice a week and then even less.

In the months leading up to their split, Holmes was rarely spotted at the Centre in LA and we've never seen her visit a Scientology church in NYC, where she and Suri had been spending more and more time as of late.

Cruise is an outspoken supporter of the religion, but rumors swirled that Catholic-raised Katie's parents were weary of her ties to the church. Not only that, but Tom was adamant their daughter Suri be enrolled in Scientology elementary school and it was beginning to raise concerns.

Coincidentally, the 6-year-old has not been spotted at the Scientology school for at least six months. Speculation is rampant that Holmes and Cruise had been fighting nonstop about parenting styles and disagreeing about the way to raise their daughter - as a Scientologist or not.

The religion is said to have been a major point of contention in their relationship, and one of the biggest factors that led to their separation.

Mila Kunis is obviously drop-dead gorgeous, but the actress admits she would definitely resort to online dating if she wasn’t famous!

The Ted star is Glamour's August cover girl, and she confessed to the mag: “If I didn’t do what I do, I would do Internet dating instead of going out to bars. In two seconds I would. It makes so much more sense.”

Kunis, 28, also revealed that she has helped her friends find guys online, and even messages them herself to get a good idea of who they'll be going out with! “I go on and I pick the guys for my friends. I think it’s great! It’s online shopping! We all get together with our laptops and have a glass of wine. Then we message the guy,” she admits.

When Kunis was asked about dating her former That 70s Show costar dating Ashton Kutcher, she insist: "Ninety-nine percent of it is bulls--t. That is the biggest form of bullyingever, the paparazzi. Printing lies, making accusations, it’s just bullying."

Maybe they're just Friends with Benefits!

X17 EXCLUSIVE - Alec Baldwin Questions X17 Photographer About His Work As A Paparazzo

Jun 29, 2012 01:20 PM

One week after his well-publicized run-in with a paparazzi photographer, Alec Baldwin tries to make peace with an X17 photographer ... asking him questions about the job.

Alec wants to know why someone would take pictures of celebrities when they could do something "honorable," like be a cop.

Baldwin has a history of fighting with photographers -- he was accused of punching a New York Daily News photographer last week in front of the Manhattan Civil Courthouse after he and fiancee Hilaria Thomas applied for a marriage license.

Today seemed like an attempt for the more cerebral side of Alec to understand the job of a celebrity photographer. Not sure if he agreed with the snapper's answers, but he did tell him, "At least you're being honest."

"I am working out and I'm trying and I'm trying not to [obsess]. Everyone wants their body back, but all in time. It took nine months to get there and so hopefully, it won't take that long to get off, but I'm doing it slowly," she revealed in a recent interview with Access Hollywood.
