Cruise wanted to be a priest
London: One of the most famous followers of the Church of Scientology, actor Tom Cruise dreamt of being a Catholic priest when he was younger though his plans were cut-short over an alcohol stealing incident.
Cruise was asked to leave the St Francis Seminary in Cincinnati after being caught stealing alcohol.
The actor's school friend Shane Dempler said, "I tossed about six, most broke, but we managed to get a couple and hide them in the nearby woods.
The priests didn't even realise until some of the other boys found out about our plan and snuck into the woods and got drunk."
Dempler said he and his pal were interested in priesthood but were too young to have made a serious decision about their careers.
