Tom Cruise has banned Katie Holmes from smoking. The Valkyrie actor is said to have been furious after discovering his actress wife – with who he has a two-year-old daughter, Suri – had taken up the deadly habit again and is now trying to force her into giving up cigarettes.

A source said: “Tom leads a very disciplined life and happily encourages Katie to follow Scientology and purification detoxes.

“He is livid she’s started smoking again and is doing everything he can to put pressure on her to quit what he calls a filthy habit.”

This is not the first time Tom, 46, has tried to influence his 30-year-old wife’s behaviour.

It was recently claimed the Thank You For Smoking actress underwent a 'Scientology Sparkle' makeover after her gaunt and unkempt appearance caused concern among leaders of the bizarre sci-fi cult she and Tom follow.

A source said: "The makeover was Tom and Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige's idea. After Katie followed the Purification Rundown - an extreme detox where she had high doses of vitamins and spent five hours a day in a sauna - doctors and homeopaths were called in to maintain her looks and ensure her skin would not break out, a process dubbed the 'Scientology Sparkle'."

As part of the beautifying process, Katie enjoyed two days of pampering at the Tokyo Ritz Carlton spa, including hot volcanic stone massages, a rejuvenating facial and manicures and pedicures.
