Director Paul Haggis has backed up Vanity Fair article on Scientology church auditioning girlfriend for Tom Cruise. In an e-mail to Showbiz 411, the Oscar winner confirmed that Iranian born actress Naz Boniadi was groomed to be Cruise's wife between 2004 to 2005 before he eventually picked Katie Holmes in April 2005.

"I've known Nazanin for about three years," Haggis began. "I met her through a mutual friend when I was doing my own personal research into the allegations against Scientology, before I wrote my letter of resignation. Naz was embarrassed by her unwitting involvement in this incident and never wanted it to come out, so I kept silent. However I was deeply disturbed by how the highest ranking members of a church could so easily justify using one of their members; how they so callously punished her and then so effectively silenced her when it was done. It wasn't just the threats; they actually made her feel ashamed, when all she had been was human and trusting."
