Tom CruiseTom Cruise has ordered topless scenes of his fiancée Katie Holmes to be cut from her latest film. The Mission: Impossible III actor insists the actress' sexy stripping scenes in 'Thank You For Smoking' go against his strict Scientology beliefs, which instruct followers to act with decency and integrity.

A source said: "Tom wasn't too pleased when he found out about Katie. She flashed quite a lot of flesh and he didn't think it was appropriate because of their Scientology beliefs. Katie was happy to go along with it."

The brunette's raunchy sex scene with Aaron Eckhart was included in the first screening on the film at the Toronto Film Festival in Canada last year, however, it had been mysteriously deleted when the film was screened at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah this year.

At the festival, director Jason Reitman quipped that the scene wasn't included because of a "technical glitch", before adding, "If you want to see a sex scene with Katie Holmes, rent The Gift." Katie, who gave birth to the couple's first baby, Suri, two weeks ago, appeared topless in the 2000 movie.
