AceShowbiz - Tom Cruise refuses to use painkillers for his broken ankle after he was injured while doing dangerous stunt on the set of "Mission: Impossible 6". It is reportedly due to his religious beliefs.
"Tom will not be taking painkillers or drugs for his broken ankle," an insider close to the "Jack Reacher" actor tells Radar Online, noting that he "will look to Scientology to cure him!"
Another source reveals, "According to the Church's faith, it believes that illnesses and accidents like this come because there is a Potential Trouble Source in someone's life. A PTS comes because a member is connected to a 'Suppressive Person,' which is usually someone who has left the Church or is a non-believer."
"In Tom's case, he has a number of supposed SPs in his life, such as his ex-wives Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes, who are both Catholic and left the Church," the source continues, "But daughter Suri is the biggest problem, as she is now living with her mother in New York and it's rumored that he hasn't seen her for over three years."
Tom broke his ankle on the "Mission: Impossible 6" set in London earlier this month after doing a dangerous stunt that involved jumping from one building to another. The actor was jumping across buildings as a stunt and landed the wrong way.
His rep said, "During production on the latest Mission: Impossible film, Tom Cruise broke his ankle while performing a stunt. Production will go on hiatus while Tom makes a full recovery, and the film remains on schedule to open July 27, 2018. Tom wants to thank you all for your concern and support and can't wait to share the film with everyone next summer."
Tom is known for doing his own stunts in movies. He ran down the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa, in Dubai for "Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol" and he was strapped to a moving plane at 5,000 feet for a dangerous scene in the sequel, "Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation".
