Katie Holmes has been frustratingly silent about Scientology and its effects on her life, but her security team may have let the Xenu out of the bag a bit when they questioned some photographers on the set of her latest film, inquiring about whether or not they were associated with the church.

Holmes directed her security team to keep their “eyes open for anything suspicious and report it,” according to the Daily Mail. Once the photographers’ credentials were approved, Holmes continued on her walk to the set with her team of six bodyguards. Six! Wow.

A spokesperson for Holmes denied the whole thing, telling the Daily Mail that it “isn’t true” that her security forces are on the lookout for L. Ron Hubbard hoverers.
