Lucky With The Ladies
The love life of Tom Cruise could itself make for a Hollywood blockbuster. Born Thomas Cruise Mapother IV on the 3rd of July 1962, the American actor and producer got his start at age 19 in 1981 in the film Endless Love. Originally, Cruise had aspired to become a Catholic priest after he was awarded a church scholarship at a Franciscan seminary. However, given Cruise’s love for the ladies, acting it seemed was best suited for a man of his talents.
Cruise’s breakthrough film was the romantic comedy Risky Business in 1983, in a starring role. His co-star from the film, actor Curtis Armstrong, revealed that Cruise killed time by entertaining local young women, “…young girls — late teens — lined up in the hall outside of Tom’s room,” he writes in his memoir. In total Cruise has been married and divorced three times with several high-profile relationships before, and after each marriage and subsequent divorce.
