German actor Sky du Mont, who befriended Cruise during the filming of Eyes Wide Shut, says he's witnessed a real change in the actor as he's become more involved with the church over the past few years -- and it hasn't been an improvement.
Cruise "has really changed through this Scientology, which I think is a real shame," du Mont told Germany's RTL Television at an event earlier this week.
"He was a great guy ... " du Mont says. "I was really good friends with him."
Just a few years later, however, at the Bambi Awards in Berlin, "I ran into him again …" he says. "Said hi to him and he simply looked right through me. He never even acknowledged me."
"He's really changed through this Scientology," he insists.
And he has praise for Kidman for getting out of the church and divorcing Cruise.
