12 Things That Prove Tom Cruise Is an Extraordinary and Unique Soul


Tom Cruise is one of Hollywood’s wealthiest actors. He made his big screen debut in 1981 and is still in excellent form now. He does, however, have some odd features, such as declining professional aid and divorcing his spouses when they reach a certain age, as do all good movie stars.

He has won numerous awards.


Tom Cruise is well-known for his acting abilities and beautiful appearance. It’s not for nothing that he’s been named to some of the world’s most prestigious magazine lists. He was named the Sexiest Man Alive three times by People magazine, and he was named one of the 50 Most Beautiful Men in the World three times. He was also placed first in Forbes magazine’s Top 100 Celebrities, and he has won three Golden Globes for the films Magnolia, Jerry Maguire, and Born on the Fourth of July, despite not winning the prized statuette.

He’s fired a number of stunt doubles.


Tom Cruise is an outlier in the film industry, since he goes above and beyond to prepare for his own action scenes, obviating the need for stuntmen. This was demonstrated in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, when he scaled the Burj Khalifa, one of the world’s tallest structures. He did it all himself in Jack Reacher, when he was chased by a car, and in Mission Impossible 5, when he was suspended from a plane at 4,921 feet above sea level.

He understands how to amass a large sum of money.

Cruise was the first actor in history to star in five $100 million films in a row. A Few Good Men (1992), The Firm (1993), Interview with a Vampire (1994), Mission Impossible (1996), and Jerry Maguire (1997) were the films in question (1996). Rain Man (1988), Born on the Fourth of July (1989), A Few Good Men, and Jerry Maguire were among the four films for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.

He is a caring individual.

Despite his celebrity and wealth, Cruise is a really caring individual. He once witnessed a car collide with Brazilian actress Heloisa Vinhas on the street. He immediately came to the girl’s aid and even paid her hospital bills, which totaled around $20,000. While some celebs battle the paparazzi, the Mission Impossible star assisted a photojournalist who had fallen on the street.

His ambition was to become a priest.

Following his parents’ divorce, Cruise adhered to his faith and enrolled in a seminary to pursue his dream of becoming a priest. As a result of his active participation in the theatre club, he became accustomed with performing on stage, to the point that he was handed whole plays to memorise. Despite this, he was ejected for stealing from the priests after a year.

He has an odd relationship with numbers.

Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman, and Katie Holmes, all born in 1956, 1967, and 1978, respectively, were Tom Cruise’s first three wives. The three women had all been married for roughly 11 years and divorced the actor at the age of 33, either by happenstance or pure coincidence. Was this premeditated or did it happen by chance?

He has a strong desire to try new things.

Tom Cruise is a big fan of action, both on and off the screen. He scuba dives, has a private pilot’s licence, and skydives. He even went to the trouble of planning a shocking surprise for his family. The actor brought his mother skydiving and shot the descent in 1990 while filming Days of Thunder in Florida, USA. He then mailed a copy of the VHS movie to his sisters, who were terrified.

He prefers to interact with his coworkers.

In an interview, Tom said that his first platonic love was for actress Ingrid Bergman, whom he first saw in the film Interlude. To pay homage to his muse, the actor Rebecca Ferguson, who is thought to be a Bergman double, was cast in Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation. The actress in the film is named Ilsa, after Bergman’s character in Casablanca.

When he runs, he makes more money.

The website Rotten Tomatoes undertook a study to evaluate Tom Cruise’s films and discovered that the more he directs, the more successful his films are, both critically and financially. In almost 37 years of filmmaking, his films have covered the equivalent of 24,000 feet, according to the article. Mission Impossible III (2006) is at the top of the list, with 3,212 feet run, nearly equaling the total number of runs of the 12 films made in the 1980s.
