Tom Cruise-As A Child
Cruise was born in Syracuse, New York, on July 3, 1962, to electrical engineer Thomas Cruise Mapother III and special education teacher Mary Lee (née Pfeiffer).
Both of his parents were born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky and were of English, German, and Irish descent. Lee Anne, Marian, and Cassandra are all three of Cruise’s siblings’ names. In addition to starring in five films with Cruise, William Mapother, a relative, is also an actor. Cruise was raised in a Catholic household in the midst of hardship. Later, he branded his father as a “merchant of chaos,” a “bully,” and a “coward” for abusing his children. He went on to explain further “Whenever things went wrong, [my father] was the kind of guy who would kick you in the face. When he’d lure you in and make you feel protected, he’d suddenly smack you in the face. “There’s something wrong with this man,” I thought to myself as I walked away. Don’t put your faith in him. Make sure you’re safe around him'”
Cruise was born and raised in Canada. His family relocated to Beacon Hill, Ottawa, in late 1971 when his father accepted a position as a military consultant with the Canadian Armed Forces. He was a student at the Robert Hopkins Public School for grades 4 and 5 from 2003 to 2005. When he was in fourth grade, his drama instructor, George Steinburg, introduced him to the world of theatre. Six other students performed IT, an impromptu play set to music, at the Carleton Elementary School theatre festival. He wrote the script.
“The dancing and improvisation were superb… it was a great ensemble work,” later stated drama organizer Val Wright, who was in the audience. When Cruise was in the sixth grade, he attended Henry Munro Middle School in Ottawa, Ontario. He and his sisters returned to the United States that year when their mother divorced him. She wed Jack South in 1978. In 1984, Tom Cruise’s father, who had been suffering from cancer, passed away. Aspiring to become a priest, Cruise entered the St. Francis Seminary in Cincinnati, Ohio, but was booted from the seminary for drinking and growing interested in acting.
He went to 15 different schools throughout the course of his 14-year education. He was a linebacker for the varsity football team during his final year of high school, but was kicked off the team when he was spotted drinking beer before a game. One of the school’s performances was of Guys and Dolls. At Glen Ridge High School, he received a diploma in the year of his graduation (1980).
Tom Cruise Litigation
He won a lawsuit against the Daily Express in 1998, which claimed that his marriage to Nicole Kidman was a hoax to cover up his homosexuality.
Earlier this year, Cruise filed a lawsuit against Chad Slater, a homosexual porn performer. According to Slater, he was having an affair with Tom Cruise in Actustar magazine. After Cruise vehemently refuted Slater’s accusation, a judge ordered the actor to pay $10 million in damages to Cruise after Slater said he could not afford to defend himself and would thus default on the lawsuit. A Los Angeles judge denied Slater’s motion for default judgement in January 2003, after the porn star claimed that his tale was fake and asked for a default judgement to be granted by the court.
A $100 million lawsuit was filed by Cruise against publisher Michael Davis of Bold Magazine, who claimed (but never proved) to have video evidence showing Cruise to be homosexual. Public revelation by Davis that he was not Cruise and that he is straight led to the suit being withdrawn.
The TomCruise.com domain name was taken over by Cruise in 2006 when he filed a lawsuit against cybersquatter Jeff Burgar. Burgar’s website redirects to Celebrity1000.com, which provides information on cruises. In 2006, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) ruled that TomCruise.com should be transferred to Cruise.
According to a lawsuit filed by Michael Davis Sapir in 2009, Cruise ordered his phone to be wiretapped. Sapir’s lawsuit was rejected by a Los Angeles judge because of a statute of limitations violation.
Tom Cruise sued In Touch and Life & Style magazines in October 2012 for defamation over their claims that he “abandoned” his 6-year-old daughter. It had been 110 days since he last saw her, he stated during the deposition. In the end, the two parties reached a settlement.
In his youth, Cruise attempted to conceal his dyslexia from his classmates. “Functional illiterate” is how Cruise refers to himself as a child after being diagnosed at the age of seven. When he was in high school and even in his early acting jobs, he could hardly read. At the age of 19, Cruise landed his first major acting role.
