Tom Cruise Biography


Born in New York in 1962, Cruise was the son of a special education teacher and an electrical engineer. Cruise says that his father was an abusive man and that the family lived in near poverty. He lived for a short time in Canada as a child and this is where he first became involved in drama. Cruise, along with 6 other boys, put on a play for the school drama festival.

His real moneymaking career began when he was only 19 in the 1981 film Endless Love. His first leading role was in Risky Business in 1983. After he made Top Gun, he became a movie star.

Since Top Gun, Cruise has starred in numerous, extremely successful films including Cocktail, Rain Man, Born on the Fourth of July, Far and Away, A Few Good Men, Jerry Maguire, Magnolia, and Minority Report, just to name a few.

Cruise is one of Hollywood’s highest paid actors. A total of fifteen of his films have grossed over $100 million domestically, and twenty-one of his films have grossed more than $200 million worldwide.  His Mission Impossible franchise is one of the highest grossing movie franchises in history. This long string of Hollywood movie hits has Cruise leading the way in both earnings and total net worth.

Cruise owns two private jets, a New York condo with an estimated value of $3 million, a ranch house in Telluride, Colorado, in addition to his Beverly Hills, California mansion. He loves expensive cars and owns several of the world’s most expensive cars including a Porsche 911 and a Bugatti Veyron.

Cruise is well known for his connection to the Church of Scientology, as well as his famously outspoken views he has given on his religion to various interviewers. Cruise has been married three times and although the divorce terms are undisclosed, they don’t appear to have made much of a dent in Cruise’s total net worth, which is currently about $500 million.
