October 7, 2005 The Face: Katie Holmes There is speculation about the extent to which Holmes, who was raised a Catholic, has embraced Scientology, for which Cruise is an evangelist. She has reportedly said that Scientology allows her to continue as a practising Catholic but she has been learning about the sect and has allegedly had a "Scientologist chaperone" with her during interviews. Fans who fear that she doesn't know what she's getting into have set up a "free Katie" website. Katie Holmes, Press, silent childbirth, Tom Cruise
October 7, 2005 Katie Facing Cult's 'Silent Birth' Katie Holmes will have to suffer in silence while having Tom Cruise's baby under the weird rules of Scientology. Batman actress Katie, 26, announced she is expecting and is known to be taking lessons in the cult, which fiance Tom follows devotedly. The controversial organisation believes pregnant women must remain silent during childbirth and shun painkilling drugs. Katie Holmes, Press, silent childbirth, Tom Cruise
October 6, 2005 Quit Yellin', It's Only Childbirth Katie Holmes' mission impossible will be giving birth without painkillers - or screaming. That's because her fiance, "Mission Impossible" star Tom Cruise, is a Scientologist. Practitioners of Scientology are against drugs but insist on "silent birth" because they believe it's traumatic for babies to hear their mothers groan or cry.
