New Delhi (ANI): Hollywood actor Tom Cruise has revealed that the teachings of Church of Scientology helped him beat dyslexia. The 46-year-old revealed that at the age of seven he was diagnosed as having the language-based learning disability that can include problems in reading, spelling, writing and pronouncing words, reports the China Daily.
"I asked myself if I was normal or an idiot. I would try to concentrate but I felt anxiety, frustration, boredom. When I graduated from high school in 1980 I was functionally illiterate," he told XL Semanal, the weekly magazine supplement of daily Spanish newspaper ABC. "Nobody gave me a solution and I wanted to know why the system had failed. Finally, as an adult I learned to read perfectly through the method of [Scientology's late founder] L. Ron Hubbard," he added.
