As previously reported, The Church of Scientology screened dozens of women to date Tom Cruise after he divorced Nicole Kidman, including Yolanda Pecoraro.

The same Yolanda Pecoraro who was linked to him this July, following his split with Katie Holmes. Those Scientology peeps do not waste time apparently.

“Tom had specific demands about the type of woman he was interested in, including long dark hair, olive complexion and preferably an actress,” a source said.

Of course, he wanted her to preferably be a Scientologist too.

Radar claims Cruise and Pecoraro were set up and dated in the summer of 2004, after his very public split from another A-lister, girlfriend Penelope Cruz.

The relationship with Yolanda lasted a few months, but Cruise grew bored with her, and really wanted to date an actress that was known to the public.

A new Vanity Fair article claims that Shelly Miscavige, the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige, headed up the task of finding Tom Cruise a mate.

Candidates were reportedly told they were auditioning for a training film and were asked a series of questions including “What do you think of Tom Cruise?”

Iranian-born actress / Scientology follower Nazanin Boniadi was another “winner” in the girlfriend derby, dating Tom for a while before being ostracized.
