Katie Holmes

Tom Treated Me

Like a Robot

7/6/2012 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tom Cruise controlled Katie Holmes like a puppetmaster ... making every major and even minor decision in her personal and professional life ... and in the end, she felt like she couldn't breathe without his permission ... this according to sources close to the actress.

Movie studio-connected sources tell us Tom executed an "Art Kill" way back when Katie was doing "Thank You for Smoking" in 2005 ... when the 2 first started dating.

Sources tell us Tom instructed producers to "kill" any promotional photos which showed Katie and Aaron Eckhart engaged in kissing or "anything else compromising."

We're told Tom also imposed his will during "Batman Begins" ... prohibiting Katie from flying with the rest of the cast. Instead, Katie would only travel on Tom's private jet. One source tells us Morgan Freeman was "disgusted" by the situation. On the other side, however, one source scoffed and said, "Wow, Tom offered her his private jet. How terrible for Katie."

Ultimately, our Katie sources say she grew sick and tired of playing Pinocchio to Tom's Geppetto ... and decided it was time to cut the strings.

Morgan Freeman tells us, claims he was "disgusted" by Tom and Katie's situation are "BS."

He was a control Freak. Good thing she got out. He seemed like the abusive type(at least mentally and emotionally) I know the signs, cause I almost married someone like that. Thank God she's wakeing up and getting out.

Older men like young women who they can boss and mold into a Stepford wife. Eventually, these girls grow up and a few develop a mind (LOL) of their own. But, this "girl" also knew the shoes she was stepping into and was a fool to think her lot would be any different from the previous two wives. Once the control freak short man got too comfortable with his trophy girl, she smacked him with a major reality check. Maybe next wife should be a dumbot from one of those polygamous compounds in northern Arizona where the women and girls are taught not to think, just to obey men.

Something about Tom has always creeped me out!! Kate should never have married the little Tom!!l Good for her for taking her life back and protecting her daughter from the scientology cult!! I am sure Kate has info. on Tom that he won't want the world to know!!

Well...she chose to bend over and take it. What took her so long to grow a spine? Remember there are two sides to every story. It would be nice to know what Tom has to say instead of all the BS "Anonymous Sources"

Everyday it's a new anonymous source telling a story. You don't need to talk to Morgan Freeman, most of us can see for ourselves what went on in this rich man's story. He likes to get young impressionable girls, with stars in their eyes and mold them into what he wants. They grow up and the stars disappear and they want to breathe again on their own. End of Hollywood story.

Wow ...    

OMG, did you guys hear about this? A 27 year old dies of a 'fever", happens to be the son of the president of CoS and a woman who left the church and recently spoke out against the CoS. She has not been able to speak to him in 2 yrs...

- "prohibited Katie from lying with the rest of the cast"
- "Wow, Tom offered her his private jet. How terrible for Katie."
Hahaha 'bout sums it up.
Tom's always protected them and, in Katie's case...made sure she was treated like a queen and received only first class treatment.
But as with any marriage, the henpecking meddlers on the sidelines will pick apart the husband and try and make his motives look bad so they can feel a little power trip in contributing to breaking up a marriage ;)

I haven't seen any pics of Tom's "crazy eyes" before or early on in their marriage. Seems that he went off the deep end with the religion during their marriage.
Also she didn't realize what a control freak he is anyway.

Why can there only be one point of view tolerated in this comment section? Is this America or not?

Specifically what do the most outspoken here propose should happen to Tom Cruise and all the non-celebrity members and leaders at The Church of Scientology?
