Steven Spielberg Will Not Be Working With Tom Cruise Again
Reports from Budapest and Paris, where Spielberg is filming "Munich," say the director is still steamed at Cruise for ranting, during what were supposed to be promotional appearances for the Martian-invasion film, against the widespread use of Ritalin to treat unruly children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder.
One source said: "Steven and his wife [Kate Capshaw] have five children themselves and know some children for whom Ritalin does a lot of good. They took exception to what Tom said about the drug."
Spielberg was also said to be annoyed that Cruise played up Scientology more than the movie during press interviews.
In August, when PAGE SIX started researching this story, we received a letter from Cruise's lawyer Bert Fields, noting:
"We have received word that you are planning a report that Steven Spielberg was upset with Tom about Tom's speaking out about his views on children's use of drugs . . . and that now they are not speaking to each other."
The letter stated: "Each of these statements is absolutely and demonstrably false. Steven is not upset with Tom . . . Tom and Steven remain close friends and are looking forward to working together again. The idea that they are not speaking is not only false but absurd. Actually Steven is shooting a movie in Budapest and Tom is shooting one [in the States]."
But maybe Fields should have talked to Spielberg before writing this letter.
Another source, a close friend of the director, said: "They will not be working together again and Steven will never call him his friend."
When we faxed Fields' letter to Spielberg rep Marvin Levy and asked for comment, Levy stated "...I will get back to you on the [Cruise/Spelberg item] after I talk to Steven."
Levy called back to "decline comment."

Give away your TV and get a life.
I did 10 years ago.
Everyone should know that Hubbard was a satanist, a liar, a thief, and spent much of his middle age hiding from the FBI because his cult, er, church, was wanted on many fruad charges and eventually went banckrupt. He even claimed he could make a atom bomb disapear and reapear! (a mind over matter control the sciensociopathtologists call "as-is-ness"WTF??!) When will folks see the fiction in this supposed science? Free Katie Holmes!
If tom's faith is so strong then why can't he answer any questions publically about $cientology? All his answers about CO$ are mubo-jumbo, or he tries to intimidate the reporter.
We all know Tom can't talk truthfully about his "faith", and we all know why. $cientology has to get people away from their family and friends to indoctrinate them. $cientology need to groom their followers first, so they're ready for the bullshit that they feed their minds with.
We are country filled with politically correct viewpoints. And this is why you elected Bush as your president?? And T.C. attacking Brooke Shields on tv was P.C.?? Its nice to see someone shout his beliefs on national TV. You wont see many catholic or Jewish celebrities profess their faiths on TV. Because we don't need to go around trying to convince people that "our" religion is the best. Those of us that do belong to a "religion" do not engage in trying to convert the world to "our" side. Cults tend do that more often than not. Mostly because they lost the faith long ago. So your theory is that these religions are "dead"? Last time I checked these two religions you mentioned above have the largest following in the world with Christianity having 2.1. Billion followers and Judaism 14 million. Furthermore they are on the list of CLASSICAL World Religions and are considered the "Big Five". Let's not forget to mention the fact that these religions have been around for thousands of years. Did I miss anything here? Those criticizing Tom are those that do not have a strong belief system in their daily lives. Assuming you have a strong belief system, how should those of us who "do practice" a Catholic or Jewish religion gain a strong belief system, since "our" religion is according to you "lost"?
thank you for letting us speak our minds on the couch jumping,,soon to be over the hill cruise ship the s.s.nutbag..
