Scarlett Johansson says that she never auditioned to date Tom Cruise,USA Todayreported.

Former Scientologist Brendan Tighe told Megyn Kelly on her show that several women, including Johansson, auditioned to date Cruise after he broke up with Nicole Kidman.
"The very idea of any person auditioning to be in a relationship is so demeaning," Johansson toldThe Hollywood Reporter. "I refuse for anyone to spread the idea that I lack the integrity to choose my own relationships."

Tighe appeared on Kelly's show to talk about his experiences with Scientology and says that he heard about Johansson's audition accidentally. According to Tighe, Johansson was not interested in Cruise, who began dating Katie Holmes soon after.

Tighe said that reports about Cruise's relationship interviews were accidentally coming to his printer while he worked on Cruise's security team, and that the reports included information about Johansson and the interview, which reportedly did not go well.

"Another actress, Erika Christensen, had to disconnect from Scarlett Johansson because it didn't go well. That was in that report," Tighe said.

The Church of Scientology also rebuked Tighe's claims. Karin Powe, a representative for the church, said that Tighe was a security guard and night watchman from 2002 to 2009 with little real access to Cruise. According to Power, Tighe was removed from that job for dereliction of duty
