Tom Cruise is reportedly distancing himself from Scientology.

The actor has been involved with the religion for decades.

Cruise has recently divorced from ex-wife Katie Holmes, whom he shares six-year-old daughter Suri with, and his beliefs have come under public fire.

Apparently Cruise has had enough and is looking to extricate himself from the community.

"Tom hasn't admitted that he's definitely leaving Scientology for good," source told Star magazine.

"But he's distanced himself from those in the church and has been hanging out with good friends who aren't part of the religion."

Cruise has had failed marriages with Holmes, Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman and also experienced a high-profile split from ex-girlfriend Penelope Cruz.

The actor evidently attributes his relationship breakdowns to his affiliation with Scientology.

"Tom's been leaning on friends who have different perspectives, getting advice on moving on from Katie as well as on everything he's been going through with Scientology," the source said.

"He's finally seeing that being such an advocate for Scientology hasn't served him as well as he'd hoped - he's gone through three divorces, and his public perception has sunk to an all-time low."
