Tom Cruise’s age

Tom Cruise was born Thomas Cruise Mapother IV in Syracuse, New York on July 3, 1962.

Cruise was raised Catholic and thought about joining the priesthood. He even attended a Franciscan seminary. However, one of his teachers encouraged him to audition for his high school’s production of the musical Guys and Dolls. He did and landed the lead role of Nathan Detroit. From there he realized his love for acting and decided to pursue that career path.

How many times he’s been married

Cruise has been married three times. You may recall who two of those marriages were to but many of his fans aren’t aware who his first wife was.

On May 9, 1987, Cruise wed actress Mimi Rogers in a ceremony in New York City. Rogers is the person who introduced Cruise to the religion of Scientology. By 1989 their marriage had broken down and they released a joint statement, “While there have been very positive aspects to our marriage, there were some issues which could not be resolved even after working on them for a period of time.”

Their divorce was finalized in 1990; the same year Cruise met and married his Days of Thunder co-star Nicole Kidman. The pair said “I do” on Dec. 24, 1990, in Telluride, Colorado and later adopted two children Isabella, born in 1992, and Connor, born in 1995. But after 11 years together their marriage ended when Cruise filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.” 

In 2005, the Vanilla Sky star then had a highly-publicized relationship with Katie Holmes and famously professed his love for the Dawson’s Creek alum by jumping up on a couch during an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

In October 2005, the couple dubbed “TomKat” announced they were expecting their first child together. They tied the knot a month later in Rome and welcomed their daughter, Suri, on April 18, 2006. The marriage did not last though as Cruise and Holmes divorced in 2012.
