Russell Brand jokes Tom Cruise didn’t even try to recruit him into the scientology cult

Russell Brand is jokingly a little upset with Tom Cruise over scientology.

The 37-year-old comedian stopped by Conan O’Brien‘s show, where he opened up about bonding, or the lack thereof, with Cruise while on the set of their 2012 flick Rock of Ages.

“But I was thinking he’s a member of that religion called Scientology,” he continued. “I thought, ‘Oh, I’m interested in that.'”

Brand joked that during filming, he tried to bait Cruise into bringing up the topic of his religion. “That man had no interest in getting me into Scientology at all,” a peeved, yet hilarious, Brand said.

“If there’s a cult that don’t want me, I want to know why!”
