In a really bizarre joint interview with German magazine Spiegel, Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise use the upcoming release of War of the Worlds to talk about Scientology, September 11, and, uh, something about how Jaws got people to stop taking baths. I have a feeling there might be some translation issues going on here, but here are a couple of choice excerpts:

SPIEGEL: Do you see it as your job to recruit new followers for Scientology?

Cruise: I'm a helper. For instance, I myself have helped hundreds of people get off drugs. In Scientology, we have the only successful drug rehabilitation program in the world. It's called Narconon.

SPIEGEL: That's not correct. Yours is never mentioned among the recognized detox programs. Independent experts warn against it because it is rooted in pseudo-science.

Cruise: You don't understand what I am saying. It's a statistically proven fact that there is only one successful drug rehabilitation program in the world. Period.

SPIEGEL: With all due respect, we doubt that.
