Scientologist follower Tom Cruise is said to be desperate for pal David Beckham to join his religion.
The "Top Gun" actor is reportedly trying to persuade the star footballer to convert. He had previously tried to convert David's wife Victoria but the Spice Girl proved to be difficult to convince.
A source was quoted by showbizspy.com as saying, "Tom hasn't quite given up on persuading David that Scientology is a life-changing and wonderful thing. But he tends to see David privately. He thinks David is more malleable than Victoria. She is less pliable, stronger and more opinionated."
On related news, Victoria's relationship with Tom's wife Katie Holmes is reportedly under strain because of her unwillingness to be converted.
The source says, "Katie and Tom want to surround themselves with fellow Scientologists these days, and they are distancing themselves from anyone who is not a believer."
"For Tom, a non-believer like Victoria is very dangerous. She is opinionated, strong-minded, privately very against Scientology and has voiced her doubts."
