Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise (born July 3, 1962 in Syracuse, New York), born Thomas Cruise Mapother IV, is an American actor who has starred in a number of top-grossing movies and is considered a sex symbol.

He received Academy Award nominations in 1990 for Born on the Fourth of July, 1997 for Jerry Maguire and 2000 for Magnolia. He has been married twice, to Mimi Rogers, and later Nicole Kidman. He has now divorced Kidman and is currently involved with Penelope Cruz, the lead actress in Vanilla Sky. He is a well-known member of The Church of Scientology, a fact that has occasionally led to protests at openings of his movies in Europe.
