Tom Cruise allegedly called David and Victoria Beckham 18 times in one hour in an attempt to convert them to Scientology. The 'War of the Worlds' star is relentlessly pursuing his friends - who are preparing to move to Los Angeles - to get them to join the sci-fi cult. A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Victoria is tired of Tom being on her back about Scientology. "Victoria is an old-fashioned British woman who believes in God. She finds it quite annoying that Tom is bugging her so much. Not too long ago, Tom left 18 messages in one hour to get them to join the church. But when Victoria says no, she means no."
However, a representative for 44-year-old Tom denies the claims, saying: "This is completely false. Tom does not and never has encouraged anyone to adopt Scientology." Former Spice Girl Victoria is also reportedly receiving numerous heart-to-heart phone calls from Tom's wife, Katie Holmes.A source said: "Katie is frustrated. Once, Katie and Victoria talked on the phone for four hours." This week it was reported that Tom has told Katie to curb her extravagant shopping sprees.
A source said: "Katie said Tom wants her to take a break from shopping as he thinks it might be sending out the wrong message. He certainly doesn't have to worry about money and Katie is not on a budget - it seems he just doesn't want people thinking she is frivolous about shopping and money." Earlier this month, it was revealed Tom has insisted on accompanying Katie to the set of her new movie 'Mad Money' in Louisiana.
