The highly-controversial Vanity Fair article about Tom Cruise using Scientology to search for a wife has set off rumors of other Hollywood actresses being auditioned including Scarlett Johansson and Lindsay Lohan.
“Lindsay met with Tom before he met Katie,” the Huffington Post reports. “At first, she was super excited to work with Tom and thought it was about a role in Mission Impossible. It soon became clear that he wasn’t looking for an actress but something very different.”
Lindsay’s rep says, “It’s all so absurd.”
And, The Canyons star wants to make sure that Tom knows she had nothing to do with the article.
Scarlett Johansson’s reps confirmed to Huffington Post that the actress met with Tom and producers around the time in question, but say it was for a role in one of the Mission Impossible films.
