Tom Cruise age. Thomas Cruise Mapother IV, known simply as Tom Cruise was born in Syracuse, (NY) on July 3, 1962. At the age of 7 he was diagnosed with a serious form of dyslexia, which improved with adulthood.
As a teenager he became passionate about wrestling but while training to lose weight, a fall caused his tendon to rupture, so he was forced to give up his dream by dedicating himself to other activities. He began studying theater in high school, participating in small productions. Then at 17 he moved to New York to study acting. During his senior year of high school he participated in the school musical “Guys and Dolls” and from that moment he understood that acting could become his profession.
His career, Cruise said in Cannes“it’s all love and passion for cinema. I always go to the theater when the films come out. I put on my cap and sit in the audience with everyone. I spent a lot of time with the owners of the halls“. And on the presence of him on other platforms he reiterated his “no”: “It will never happen. I know how the industry works today, but when I make a film I make it for the big screen, my films are for the cinema, only there can they be appreciated“.
Despite a career that has now spanned 40 years, Cruise has never won an Academy Award. She did however receive three nominations for her portrayals of her in Magnolia, Jerry Maguire and Born on the Fourth of July. MTV, however, in 2005, created an award for him, making him win the first Generation Awardfor displaying “a variety of roles, a personal and professional style and, certainly, an impressive level of talent.”

In 2020, the actor falls in love with Hayley Atwell, 20 years younger, but the love born on the set of Mission Impossible 7 seems to have come to an end. And to think that the two had appeared together at the presentation of the second chapter of Top Gun. Perhaps already as friends, as they have declared they want to stay.
During the years, Tom Cruise has ended up at the center of controversy and criticism for its membership in the Scientology religion. The actor is perhaps the most prominent adept and David Miscavige, leader of the Scientologists, in 2004 awarded him the “Medal of Freedom for Valor“, recognition for the most valiant and committed member of the church. Cruise reportedly approached the move at the suggestion of his first wife, Mimi Rogers.
