Russell Crowe Looked Into Scientology After Becoming Friends With Tom Cruise

Russell Crowe says he looked into Scientology after becoming friends with Tom Cruise.

"From a young kid, I was quite interested in religion," the 51-year-old actor tells 'People'.

"When I met Tom Cruise when he was married to Nicole Kidman (photosNicole Kidman photos), we were spending a bit of time together so I thought I'd find out a little bit about what he was into."

"I found a video in the video store about Scientology and I watched it. It wasn't that informative. But I brought it up with Tom and I thought he was really cool."

"He didn't try to sell me a pair of shoes. He just said, 'If it's something that interests you, you'll pursue it.' And I think that happens with any kind of religion if you come to it by your own discovery."

Crowe never ended up joining the Church of Scientology.

"I never ended up putting my two cents down on anybody's table," he says. "I've never graced it's doorway."
