Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

Tom Cruise is a prominent member of the Church of Scientology and was introduced to the religion through his first wife, Mimi, Rogers in 1990. The actor said that psychiatry should be "outlawed" in 2005, speaking in reference to actress Brooke Shields' treatment for post-partum depression. Scientology is known to be against the medical practice. Katie Holmes' decision in 2012 to divorce Tom Cruise is said to be based largely on her desire to distance her and Cruise's daughter Suri from some parts of Scientology.
