Laura Prepon Denies Dating Tom Cruise, Defends Scientology

by at .

Rumors that Laura Prepon is dating Tom Cruise have been circulating for months now, but the Orange is the New Black actress curiously waited until today to address them.

While promoting the new season of her hit Netflix series, Prepon said of Cruise, "I totally respect him and think he's an amazing actor...I'm flattered because I think he's hot so I'm like, 'Oh that's nice.'"

Prepon also addressed rumors that she wouldn't be appearing in the second season of OITNB because portraying a homosexual character conflicts with her beliefs as a Scientologist.

The actress claims she initially bowed out of the second season as a result of scheduling conflicts. She went on to say that despite popular beliefs to the contrary, Scientologists are not anti-gay:

"I'm a total supporter of the LGBT and they are an amazing fan base," says Prepon. "It's so funny when people don't know they just make stuff up...Apparently I'm dating Tom Cruise now and apparently he doesn't want me to do the show because I portray a lesbian and I'm a Scientologist. This is false; where are they even getting this stuff?"

It's good that Laura has taken the opportunity to clear up some misconceptions about her faith, but the really important here is clear: Alex Vause is coming back to Orange is the New Black!
