Hollywood Interrupted‘s Mark Ebner is, of course, a well-known Scientology “watcher” (i.e., a euphemism for an ardent disliker), which means he probably hears from others who feel as he does, which in itself casts doubt upon this second-hand observation, posted today: “Hollywood, Interrupted just received an eyewitness report from a moviegoer who, while purchasing tickets for a Mission: Imposssible II show on Friday, May 5th, saw a woman in front of him in the ticket line purchase 900 tickets at a cost of just shy of $9,000 — all for the Church of Scientology. An ArcLight guest services rep would not confirm whether or not an excessive ticket purchase like that was made.” The reason I’m running it is because there was a seemingly verified report of someone trying to fix the results of a Parade magazine poll about whether Cruise’s image troubles were self-generated or caused by the media. Parade publicist Alexis Collado told “Page Six”, “We found out more than 14,000 (of the 18,000-plus votes) that came in were cast from only 10 computers…one computer was responsible for nearly 8,400 votes alone, all blaming the media for Tom’s troubles.”
