Sugar Bits - Tom Sizemore Gets Jail Time

  • Actor Tom Sizemore has been sentenced to 16 months in prison after violating his probation with drug usage last month. Maybe now he can stay out of trouble for a little while. - AP
  • Ellen Barkin and Ralph Fiennes have been spotted holding hands and making out around NYC. I wonder if she'd like to join the mile high club. - Page Six
  • The German military is fighting against Tom Cruise's attempts to make his new Nazi movie, Valkyrie due to Tom's affiliation with Scientology. Another Scientology issue to add to the list. - BuzzSugar
  • Mary-Louise Parker and Jeffrey Dean Morgan have ended their relationship after dating for four months. Wonder if things will get awkward on the set of Weeds. - People
  • Professional wrestler Chris Benoit was found dead along with his wife and son on Tuesday. It's looking like a murder suicide but details are still sketchy. So sad. - AP

krisua, Germany doesn't view Scientology as a religion, but as a money-making cult with totalitarian tendencies. Given the country's history with totalitarian organizations, this reaction is more than understandable. Try to see it from the German perspective: if someone had stopped the Nazis before they had gotten into power, history would have been very different. And yes, I'm comparing Scientology to National Socialism... After reading up on their policies ("Fair Game") and watching that BBC panorama programme "Scientology and Me" recently, I have lost all respect for them.

I think the Scientology stuff is so wrong. No-one makes restrictions when you're a Christian. I think people's choices of religion should be respected.

So sad. He's a great actor. Tom Sizemore: anti-drug.

canthelpwatching, nobody is "shutting down a complete film" and nobody is "kicking people out of Germany because of their religion". The ministry of defence has said they won't give permission for their Berlin headquarters, the Bendlerblock, to be used for the film. That's it. Let me quote an article about what a German politician (the cult expert for the CDU party), Antje Blumenthal, had to say about this: "Blumenthal accused the organization of spreading views in the tradition of National Socialism - "and I find it, to say the least, odd that someone who represents this organization would be able to film at the site of a memorial to resistance against National Socialism of all places.""

I had the misfortune of having a spouse that was interested in Tom's vh1 reality show. I am so sad that he relapsed because he seemed to honestly want to get better, but he didn't seem to want to make the committment necessary to make a life change. I wanna say poor guy, but I'm not because even 18 months of jail time is not going to make his mind right =o[

Tom Sizemore is a messed up dude, he needs jail and rehab ASAP! The Chris Benoit murder/suicide story breaks my heart. I don't watch or follow wrestling at all but anytime someone murders their spouse and young child it's an absolute travesty.I heard the wife had previously taken out a restraining order against him and later had it withdrawn. What a sad situation.

Definitely sad what happened to the pro wrestler..really what is this world coming to? Pro wrestler Chris Benoit killed his wife, Nancy, and asphyxiated his son, Daniel, before hanging himself in the weight room of the family's suburban Atlanta home, law enforcement said Tuesday. Authorities also said they found a number of drugs -- all believed to be legal -- including steroids. - CNN News.. :( :( :( I'm sure I'm in the minority but who is Tom Sizemore? I've never heard of him... As for Tom Cruise..ugh, I just don't want to hear of him..next!!!

while i find scientology to be an abhorrent and false "religion",people should be able to believe whatever they and still be able to do their job, no matter what country. tom cruise may be a wack job but he truly believes the crap that he spews. for a government to tell him his beliefs are wrong and he cannot work in their country until he believes in something else, is oppressive plain and simple. as far as filming in another country, it would a) be very costly to build a set to look like historic landmarks for WWII germany vs actually filming there and b) the only way you can get less authentic than filming a movie on germany in the us, is having tom cruise play the lead role, fake german accent and all.

The reason tisane is that like you said the German government sees Scientlogy as a cult and will not allow it as a religion in Germany even after all the aggresive marketing campaigns. It's like a brand and not a religion.

There is a huge scientology centre in Berlin so why would they mind? I don't believe that story. Besides comparing Scientology to Judaism is a big no-no. Scientology is a cult, not religion.
nyaradzom2001 nyaradzom2001 10 years
Canthelpwatching maybe you should lobby the German government to change their minds but I feel that he should have known they would oppose it cos Germany is very vehement about Scientology and it's been a known fact for a very long time. And I don't know if you meant to be insulting about being raised and educated to appreciate finer things but nowhere before did i say that I would rather see LOTR I said that it was done on a set meaning why can't Valkyrie be done on a set authenticity really doesn't matter to the average movie goer who knows nothing about it or the sites or even that Berlin is the capital of Germany. I said I want to be entertained and I don't really care where it is filmed just as long as it is entertaining if I want to be informed I will watch the news or read a history novel and if I want to appreciate finer things i buy Vogue lol!!!!!

I dont know how to respond to you. I don't understand why it matters that Tom Cruise is crazy. They're shutting down a complete FILM because of one person's religion who is in the film. They don't object to the film, just Tom and his religion. Uh, okay. That's not xenophobia in its purest form. The point of the film isn't to "entertain" you for "10 bucks." The point of a historical drama is to educate and inform. If that's not your thing, and you would rather see LOTR, then that's fine. Great film. But some of us were raised and educated to also appreciate different things.

Canthelpwatching Scientology has always had a problem in Germany so why, why , why , why would Tom even need to do this there. he doesn't need to do this film, it could be done by someone else. When you are the poster child of something banned in a country don't expect to get any quarter from them and germany has a reputation for being hardline, so it shouldn't come as a surprise.he went looking for trouble and hey he got it. As far as I am concerened tom is welcome to practice whatever but Scientology like other things in the world is shrouded in secrecy like I said before. Secrecy in religion is not a good idea eg the Opus Dei in the Catholic church. It eventually comes back to bite you in the ass like now. Judaism did not have blantant persecution but Scientologists really go through nothing except ridicule by people for being an off-kilter religion. I have never heard of Scientologists being blamed for famines and plagues etc etc. And the rants that Tom has gone on see the Matt Lauer interview just solidify the image of a religion that is a little on the loopy side. I have no problem with Wicca, or voodoo or any other funky religions do your thing but Scientology creeps me out. I mean did Lord of the rings get filmed in middle earth no it was done on a set so why can't TOm do tha you might care about authenticity but when I pay $10 for a movie I want to be entertained I don't give a flying sh*t wher it is filmed as long as I get my money's worth and how many people do you think know about Stauffenberg in this day and age people are more concerned wit Paris hair colour than a man who live 60 odd years ago.
