- fun faith fact! Tom Cruise is married to fellow Scientology Katie Holmes
Nominated for multiple Academy Awards, and winner of three Golden Globes, Tom Cruise grew up in a poor Catholic family. He became interested in drama in Middle School, and would go on to star in many of the biggest films of the '80s and '90s. His very public marriages with Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes both revolved in some way around his religion - the oft debated Scientology. His first wife, Mimi Rogers, introduced him to the religion that he now openly promotes. The beliefs and Tom's openness to discussing them have made him a controversial figure as his contributions to the acting field have waned.
