    TomNaz? According to director Paul Haggis, who resigned from Scientology two years ago, Vanity Fair’s report that the church was grooming Iranian-born actress Naz Boniadi to be Tom Cruise’s wife between 2004 and 2005, before he ultimately married Katie Holmes, is true. The Crash director tells Showbiz 411 that Boniadi is a friend of his and he initially kept quiet to shield her from embarrassment, but he “was deeply disturbed by how the highest-ranking members of a church could so easily justify using one of their members; how they so callously punished her and then so effectively silenced her when it was done.”
