Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise was born Thomas Cruise Mapother on July 3, 1962 in Syracuse, New York. Interested in drama since the fourth grade, Cruise got his big acting break with a small role in 1981’s “Endless Love.” That led to a major supporting role in “Taps” later that year. In the years to follow, he nabbed memorable roles in movies such as “The Outsiders,” “All the Right Moves” and “Risky Business.” Cruise’s superstar status was cemented with 1986’s “Top Gun.” He has since gone on to become one of the biggest movie stars in the world. Some of Cruise’s most notable films include “Rain Man,” “A Few Good Men,” “Interview with the Vampire,” “Jerry Maguire,” “Minority Report” and the “Mission: Impossible” franchise.

Cruise has been married three times. He first wed actress Mimi Rogers in 1987, but the marriage only lasted two years. He then met second wife Nicole Kidman on the set of their movie “Days of Thunder.” They got married in 1990, and later adopted two children, Isabella and Connor. In 2001, Cruise filed for divorce from Kidman. Shortly after, he began dating Penelope Cruz, but their relationship ended in 2004. In April 2005, he started seeing Katie Holmes, and in October of that year the couple announced they were expecting a child. Their daughter Suri was born in 2006, and Cruise and Holmes wed not long afterwards. In 2012, Holmes filed for divorce from Cruise.

Cruise is a well-known member and advocate of the Church of Scientology. In 2013, Cruise reportedly admitted that his split from Holmes was due in part to her not fully embracing the religion to Scientology.

Cruise has won three Golden Globe Awards and been nominated for three Oscars. Among the highest paid actors in Hollywood, Cruise has one of the best box office records of all time, with 15 of his films having grossed more than $100 million domestically, and 21 of them having grossed more than $200 million worldwide.
