Tom Cruise biography

Tom Cruise is among the upper talent of Hollywood. His films attract people, many of which are fans and number in millions This is the story of a powerful man who started out an average person like you or I and became a superstar. Tom Cruise's real name is Thomas Cruise Mapother IV, born July 3, 1962. His father was an electrical engineer and monther Mary Ann, was a talented Actress. A school production of "Guys and Dolls" got Tom interested in acting. . He lived his early life in the small town of Syracuse, New York, and in Ottawa, Canada. This is where he first learned of acting at this young age. As a teenager Tom's movies, ads, and tv roles attracted the attention of many fans and he earned the status of a teenage "hunk". In 1981 Cruise started his Hollywood film career as an actor. This is when he starred in the movie Endless Love, and Taps. At this point he was more than just a teen star with a relatively small cult following.. he was taking the first step towards becoming a superstar. Two years later Cruise starred in Risky Business as a young man about to enter college. His parents were away for the weekend and he was about to have the time of his life. This movie made Tom Cruise, this was what brought in his core fans. Those fans, of course, being mostly young women interested in his sex appeal on the big screen. He dressed up in shades and underwear in one particular scene and danced around to the song "Old Time Rock 'n' Roll". His next movie was All The Right Moves, which did well at the box office and increased his status as an actor. And then Legend in 1985 which did very poorly. Top Gun was the ultimate move for Tom Cruise. Taking on this role as the defiant navy jet pilot Maverick he increased his fans to include a larger amount of men. In his next few roles Cruise would play similar characters to Maverick. Those type of characters being young, cocky exciting people that could relate to the viewer of the movie. Cruises next movies were Cocktail, The Color Money, and Days of Thunder. In these movies Tom played similar roles to that of Maverick and continued his appeal to a broad range of audiences. In The Color of Money he went for a deeper role and gained respect among critics for this role. Rain Man is widely considered to be Tom's best acting role. Oliver Stone's Born on the Fourth of July gave Tom a nomination for a best actor oscar due to the strong and powerful role of Ron Kovic, an activist fighting against the war.

The only real mistake other than Legend that Tom made was the movie Far and Away, which was directed by Ron Howard and co-starring his wife Nicole Kidman. Fortunately a downward spiral into unpopulartity was avoided when Tom starred in A Few Good Men with Jack Nicholson. Tom played a lawyer out to find the truth. "You can't handle the truth!" In his next thriller, The Firm Tom earned just as much success in another role as a lawyer. After the Firm he starred in Interview With the Vampire which gained as much success as his past movies. After this string of successful movies Tom has become a much sought after actors by studios. In Interview With a Vampire he earned over 20 million dollars for his role. Mission: Impossible opened in theatres on May 22 with a new record for sales in it's first 6 days. Tom both starred in and payed for parts of Mission: Impossible on his own. After Mission: Impossible it should be fair to say that Tom is one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful stars in Hollywood. Tom's latest release, Jerry Maguire has been a huge sucess getting oscar nominations for Cuba Gooding Jr. : Best supposrting actor in which he won, Tom Cruise was nominated for best actor but was beaten by the star of Shine. Jerry Maguire was also nominated for best pictures but lost out. Cruise's newest movie Eye's Wide Shut will be showing in theaters come Christmas 1997. After that he'll be staring in the sequel to mission impossible, and after that is rumored to be staring in another movie called The Devil's Solider.
