Friends of Katie Holmes in her younger days say she prayed for a relationship with Tom Cruise. It seems she got her wish, but the dream-come-true wound up a nightmare.
According to a report from Celebuzz, Katie's love for Tom started out as a school-girl crush, but sources say she believed way down deep that one day she would at least meet the actor.
"In religion class, when we were about 16, we would have to say prayers to keep a certain someone safe and out of harm," an old classmate says. "Katie would say it for Tom Cruise. We did that every day, so she would have said thousands of prayers for him."
Another friend said she was excited when she learned later on that Katie Holmes really did marry her prince. However she had great reservations about her converting from her Catholicism to Scientology.
"We were all shocked when she turned to Scientology, but when you're besotted with someone, I guess you'll do what they want," she said. "Her dream came true... she got her fairytale ending, I guess."
Of course now everyone knows that fairy tale wasn't all it was cracked up to be, and it was due in large part to the Church of Scientology. It's quite likely these old classmates of Katie Holmes are happy to see her free from its grasp--as well as Tom Cruise--and reverting to the religion of her childhood.
