Los Angeles, Oct 27 Actor Tom Cruise has credited his success to Scientology because his whole life improved after he joined the organisation.
The 54-year-old has over 50 films to his credit and still has producers queuing up to sign him for their forthcoming movies, but he is convinced he would not be where he is today if he had not taken up the “beautiful” religion — a body of beliefs and practices created in 1954 by American science fiction author L. Ron Hubbard — three decades ago, reports nydailynews.com.
In an interview with ITV News about the controversial organisation, Cruise, who rarely comments on his religious beliefs, said: “It’s something that has helped me incredibly in my life; I’ve been a Scientologist for over 30 years. It’s something, you know, without it, I wouldn’t be where I am. So it’s a beautiful religion. I’m incredibly proud.”
Cruise believes the methods developed by Hubbard have helped him overcome his dyslexia.
He was first introduced to the church by his first wife Mimi Rogers, whom he was married to from 1987 until 1990.Read more

Priyanka, who found international acclaim with her American TV series “Quantico”, did not hesitate when DeGeneres asked her to take a tequila shot during her sit-down on the show, which is aired in India on Romedy NOW. Priyanka was asked to do a shot because she took a shot on the red carpet at an awards show recently. DeGeneres even showed the video. The actress said the shot made her “wonky” because she hadn’t eaten all day.
After the drink, Priyanka said: “Thank you for that, this will be a really smooth interview.”DeGeneres said: “Yeah! It’s good, this will be our tradition now. Whenever you are talking to me or anybody that’s connected to the Ellen Show, you do a shot of tequila.”
To that, Priyanka said: “I really started believing it was a very American thing, because I was at the Emmy’s and it happened again. I was given tequila and I was like ‘American Red Carpets have to start with tequila’.”
When DeGeneres said “Americans drink a lot”, Priyanka commented: “Oh, so, do Indians. Yeah, Indians drink a lot.” “What’s the drink of choice in India?” DeGeneres enquired. Priyanka said: “Well, mine is…red wine. Because it is elegant and appropriate to say on the show. Because it airs in India, twice a day.”
Priyanka, who was seen essaying an FBI agent named Alex Parrish in the first season of the American drama series, is now portraying a CIA agent in its second season, which airs in India on Star World and Star World HD. She is busy shooting for the second season in New York.Read more

Los Angeles, Oct 26 (IANS) Creators of the hit TV show “How I Met Your Mother” (HIMYM) noted that the show has emotional roots inspired by the September 11 attacks. On September 11, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks took place where the planes crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York. Carter Bays and Craig Thomas discussed the show’s roots during a New York Television Festival keynote discussion on Monday.
The two New Yorkers had been working as staff writers on the “Late Show With David Letterman”, but wanted to write material with characters and storylines outside of the series’ signature Top 10 List format, reports hollywoodreporter.com. “How I Met Your Mother” — starring Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Josh Radnor and Alyson Hannigan — had nine seasons from 2005 through 2014.
The creators says the tragedy informed the tone of the pilot. “We have to write something bigger and with emotion, and (that) talks about twists and turns in life,” said Thomas. Bays added, “It informed HIMYM in very subtle ways. For two 29-year-olds to be writing something so nostalgic … (Because we learned) Wow, life really is about chapters closing and things coming to an end, and things pivoting on an axis that will never pivot back.”Read more
