BIOGRAPHY OF TOM CRUISE
Thomas Cruise Maphoter IV was born on July 3, 1962 in Syracuse, New York, to a support teacher and an electrical engineer. Of English, German and Irish origins, the boy certainly does not grow up in cotton wool, and above all he has to contend with a violent, stubborn and authoritarian father whom he will later love to describe as a “bringer of chaos”. In the early 70s, the family Cruise moves to Ottawa, Canada, then returns in the United States, where the father of Tom falls ill and dies of cancer and our meditates before becoming a priest, then devoting himself to sports disciplines and then attempting the path of acting, also thanks to an excellent performance in a school staging of the musical Bullies and pupae, a show that puts him in contact with his first agent Tobe Gibson. It is he who suggests the name by which we all know him.
Thanks to the lesson learned by attending theater courses, Cruise he decides to live in Los Angeles, changes agents and makes his debut in front of the camera playing a very small role in Endless Love of Franco Zeffirelli. We are in 1981 and, shortly thereafter, the young man stands out in Taps – riot rings, in which he is an official pupil of a military college. Shortly thereafter he is persuaded to participate in the film of Curtis Hanson A weekend like Leo – A trip out of sorts, which however does not bring him the desired success. So Tom Cruise moves to Los Angeles and finds a new agent – or rather a new agent – in Paula Wagner, which will accompany him for a good part of his career. In the city of cinema, the actor “touches” the Brat Pack group, he is directed by Francis Ford Coppola in the cult film The 56th street kids and finally gets a starring part in Risky Business – Outside the old … The children dance, going straight to the Golden Globe nomination. It is thanks to this irreverent comedy that Tom really begins her climb to stardom, becoming a real icon and an idol of teenagers with Top Gun, film by Tony Scott from the stellar collection in which he impersonates the lieutenant wonderfully Pete “Maverick” Mitchell and gives a hard time Val Kilmer.
Throughout the 80s, Cruise dominates the international scene, alternating light products such as Cocktail to works by great directors: Martin Scorsese, for example – who wants him alongside Paul Newman neither The color of money – is Oliver Stone – which calls him to interpret, in Born on the 4th of July, the soldier and later Vietnam veteran Ron Kovic, character with which the actor gets an Oscar nomination.
The 1990s are also a shining time for the peerless Tom, and among the many titles that make him a star of the cinematographic firmament we want to remember first of all Days of thunder because it marks the beginning of its relationship with Nicole Kidman, married in ’90 and her set partner also in Rebellious hearts and, in ’99, in Eyes Wide Shut. Nor should we forget the legal thriller The partner, Jerry Maguire, Interview with the vampire (from the novel by Anne Rice and alongside Brad Pitt), Magnolia (in which the actor is the motivating testosteronic Frank TJ Mackey) is Mission: Impossible, the first chapter of a profitable franchise in which the actor is the dynamic secret agent Ethan Hunt and which will be followed by Mission: Impossible 2, Mission: Impossible III, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and the recent Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Not all the films in the group have the same popularity.
In the 2000s Tom Cruise works with two authors of the utmost importance: Steven Spielberg is Michael Mann. The first drives it into Minority Report is War of the Worlds, the second in Collateral, in which he entrusts him with the role of a real villain. Despite the intense work, this is a difficult time for Cruise, who divorced from Kidman and frequented Penelope Cruz. The actor begins to suffer from a certain unpopularity due to his maniacal devotion to the Church of Scientology, which begins to control every single aspect of his existence. Ours is fired from Paramount, but responds by reviving United Artist (whose first film is Lions for lambs of Robert Redford) is making fun of himself thanks to a role that will definitely bring him back on the crest of the wave: the arrogant producer of Tropic Thunder Les Grossman. Meanwhile, the actor has dropped out Paula Wagner, found yet another agent and got married to Katie Holmes, several years younger than him and his diehard fan.
In the 2010s Cruise slowly comes back into vogue, even if the divorce from Holmes makes the tabloids go wild. Fourth Mission: Impossible confirms it as an excellent action-hero (as well as Innocent Lies, in which he duets with Cameron Diaz), while Rock of Ages it brings it back to the rank of myth. In the movie Tom is a rock star in perfect shape and, in addition to singing very well, he is good at laughing at celebrities. Among the genres tempted by the actor there is not even science fiction (“encountered” in Oblivion ed Edge of Tomorrow – Without tomorrow), though Tom Cruise he seems to enjoy himself above all in impersonating the ex-military policeman from the novels of Lee Child Jack Reacher, which we find both in Jack Reacher – The decisive test how much in Jack Reacher 2 – Point of no return.
Also nominated for an Oscar Jerry Maguire is Magnolia, and particularly athletic despite being 50 and older now Cruise faces a rather bright future, characterized by the remake de The Mummy, from the true story American Made and from Mission: Impossible 6.
