Tom Cruise (born 03.07.1962) is an American actor, with three Academy Awards and three Golden Globes to his name.
Childhood: Born Thomas Cruise Mapother IV in New York, Cruise is the son of Mary Lee and Thomas Cruise Mapother III. Cruise was raised and educated in Ontario, Canada as his father had taken a job as Defence Consultant with the Canadian Army.
Mary left Tom's father when Tom was 12 and the family lived in a number of different cities. Whilst he was recovering from a wrestling injury, Cruise decided to audition for the lead in a school production of Guys and Dolls. It was this role that made him decide to become an actor.
Acting Career: In 1981, Tom Cruise gained his first film role: a small part in Endless Love, which starred Brooke Shields. He also had a larger part alongside Sean Penn in Taps, also released in 1981. Two years later, Cruise was cast in The Outsiders, a Francis Ford Coppola film that also starred Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze and Rob Lowe. Also in 1983, Cruise appeared in Losin' It, with Shelly Long and Risky Business, which is widely credited as the film that brought Cruise to the public eye. His fourth film of the year was All the Right Moves.
After featuring in Ridley Scott's fantasy picture, Legend, Cruise was cast by Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson to appear in Top Gun. It has been reported that Cruise initially turned down the offer but helped to alter the script and eventually took the part. The film opened in 1986 and was the highest grossing film of the year, making over $350 million worldwide. The same year, Cruise starred in The Color of Money, for which co-star Paul Newman won an Oscar.
Two years later, Cruise starred in another two highly successful films. The first was Cocktail, a light-hearted tale in which he played a bartender. The second was Rain Man, which also starred Dustin Hoffman. Rain Man won four of the eight Academy Awards for which it was nominated. This success was continued when Tom Cruise received more Academy Award nominations, this time for his role in Born on the Fourth of July.
Tom then went on to star in Days of Thunder and Far and Away, two films in which he co-starred with his future wife, Nicole Kidman. These were followed with his role in A Few Good Men, with Demi Moore and Jack Nicholson. He then gained a role alongside Gene Hackman in The Firm, based on John Grisham's best-selling novel.
In 1994, Cruise featured in Interview With The Vampire, based on Anne Rice's novel. Brad Pitt and Christian Slater also starred in the film, but Anne Rice was overtly critical of the decision to cast Cruise in the film.
Two years later, Cruise produced and starred in Mission: Impossible, a remake of the 1960s TV series. The film was the third best-selling movie of the year, grossing over $456 million. He then earned another Academy Award for his role in Jerry Maguire, which featured his infamous line "Show Me the Money!"
In 1999, Cruise starred alongside Nicole Kidman (to whom he was still married) in Eyes Wide Shut. The film was Stanley Kubrick's last venture before he died and took two years to complete. Magnolia was released in the same year and Cruise earned a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award Nomination for his role in the film. The next year, Cruise reprised his role in Mission: Impossible in the sequel, directed by John Woo. This was followed by Vanilla Sky, Steven Spielberg's Minority Report and the Last Samurai.
2004 saw Cruise deviate from his usual good-guy role, in Michael Mann's Collateral, in which he played a hitman. He worked again with Spielberg, in War of the Worlds, the third highest-selling film of 2005. The next year, he starred in the third installment of the Mission: Impossible trilogy. In 2007, he starred in the drama, Lions for Lambs with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford.
2008 saw him in the comedy 'Tropic Thunder' with Ben Stiller and Jack Black for which he earned a Golden Globe nomination. He also had the lead role in 'Valkyrie' alongside Kenneth Branagh and Bill Nighy that same year.
In 2010, he teamed up with Cameron Diaz in 'Knight and Day' and announced 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' which came out in 2011 to much box office success.
In 2012, he played the titled role in 'Jack Reacher' opposite Rosamund Pike and Richard Jenkins and starred as Stacie Jaxx in 'Rock of Ages' with Julianne Hough and Russell Brand, though the movie performed poorly at the box office. 2013 saw him in the sci-fi action flick 'Oblivion' opposite Morgan Freeman and Olga Kurylenko.
Personal Life: Tom Cruise's first marriage was in 1987, to Mimi Rogers. They divorced in 1990. It is believed that it was Rogers who introduced Cruise to Scientology, the religious sect of which he is now a figurehead.
In 1990, Cruise remarried, to his previous co-star, Nicole Kidman. The pair adopted two children, Isabella and Connor. Kidman later became pregnant with their first child, but the couple separated months before their 10th anniversary and Kidman suffered a miscarriage shortly after the split.
In 2006, Cruise married the actress Katie Holmes. They have a daughter, Suri together. The couple divorced in 2012 though the exact terms have not been reported.
A report has alleged that a clause in Holmes’ 2012 divorce from Cruise means that she cannot date Jamie Foxx publicly.
It has been alleged that the reason Katie Holmes has not confirmed she’s dating long-rumoured boyfriend Jamie Foxx is because of a clause in her divorce from Tom Cruise. The report, published by RadarOnline, claims that Holmes’ 2012 divorce from Cruise contains a special clause, saying the actress cannot date another man publicly for five years.
Katie Holmes has long been rumoured to be dating Jamie Foxx
An ‘insider’ told the website: “Katie signed a clause in her quickie divorce settlement that prevents her from embarrassing Tom in various ways, like talking about him or Scientology, or publicly dating another man for five years after the divorce.”
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson earned $64.5 million according to Forbes' annual list - nearly $20 million more than the highest-earning female actor, Jennifer Lawrence.
In a list that’s sure to reignite the debate about the gender pay gap in Hollywood, Dwayne Johnson has been named the highest-earning male movie star in the last 12 months, with an income of $64.5 million – nearly $20 million more than Jennifer Lawrence, the top-earning female actor.
Forbes published its annual list of the highest-paid movie stars in the business on Thursday (August 25th), and it revealed that ‘The Rock’ has more than doubled his earnings over the period of June 2015 to June 2016, thanks to a combination of big-budget movies such as The Fast and Furious franchise and the disaster film San Andreas, plus upfront fees for the likes of Central Intelligence, Fast 8 and the new Baywatch film.

Jack Reacher goes back in 'Never Go Back'.
Tom Cruise returns in the gripping sequel to 2012's 'Jack Reacher' with 'Never Go Back'; another adrenaline-fuelled action thriller from author Lee Child which this time co-stars Cobie Smulders and has been directed by the Oscar winning Edward Zwick. The movie is set for release this Fall.
Tom Cruise returns in 'Jack Reacher: Never Go Back'
The eighteenth book of Lee Child's Jack Reacher series, released in 2013, is finally set to hit theaters four years after the first movie. For 'Jack Reacher: Never Go Back' (also known as 'Jack Reacher: Never Look Back'), Edward Zwick ('The Last Samurai', 'Love & Other Drugs') has taken over from Christopher McQuarrie as director, with a screenplay co-written by Richard Wenk ('The Equalizer') and Marshall Herskovitz ('Nashville').
After quitting the United States Army Military Police, Jack Reacher has become an independent crime investigator who looks into hard to solve cases. Having recently worked on the case of a rogue sniper we once again meet Reacher who's on a rampage for justice.
Jack Reacher makes his own laws and seeks justice for those who cannot speak. Reacher sets to work uncovering the ways of a dirty town sheriff and soon wants to meet up with his old friend, Susan Turner. Reacher turns up at Turners base to be told that she's been arrested for crimes. This is then followed by the arrest of Jack himself for a murder that happened more than a decade before. Reacher and Turner are both out on a mission to clear their names but as facts start to fall into place, it turns out that the people behind this mystery might reach far higher than ever thought.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is the second film in the Jack Reacher series (the first released in 2012), based on the books by Lee Childs. Never Go Back is Childs' 18th book in the series.

Bruckheimer said that he had recently caught up with Cruise to "discuss" working on the long-awaited 'Top Gun' sequel.
After months of speculation, it would appear that work on Top Gun 2 has finally begun, with producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeting a picture of himself with Tom Cruise, the star of the iconic original movie, saying that they had met specifically to “discuss” the project.
The 72 year old production heavyweight seems to have at last confirmed that one of the most eagerly-anticipated sequels in movie history is actually a going concern, a full three decades after the first Top Gun came out in 1986.

Cruise has recently put a number of his properties up for sale.
The Mission: Impossible star, 53, bought the enormous Rede Place mansion in East Grinstead, in the desirable commuter belt within travelling distance of London, back in 2003. Constructed from an original base of a small Victorian house, the property covers four storeys and 14.2 acres and boasts a huge range of luxury features.

The actor has revealed some juicy ‘Top Gun 2’ details on his Facebook page.
Nearly 30 years after we were first introduced to Iceman and Maverick, it seems a sequel to Top Gun could finally be on its way, according to star Val Kilmer. In a Facebook status shared late on Monday night, the actor seemed to confirm not only his involvement in the sequel, but also that of Tom Cruise and director Francis Ford Coppola.
Val Kilmer seems to be onboard for Top Gun 2.
Katie Holmes and Leah Remini are both no longer members of Scientology
Despite the fact that former power couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise divorced three years ago, it seems that the pair still know how to rile each other up. As controversy about Scientology continues to hit the headlines, it appears Tom is angry that ex-wife Katie has reached out to the Scientology enemy.
The former couple still appear to be at loggerheads
With Leah Rimini in the Church’s bad books following her penning a tell-all book, Trouble Maker, about her time as a Scientologist, the Mission Impossible actor has reacted badly to Katie apologising to Remini for the way she has been treated in the past.
