Cruise later married actress Katie Holmes in a fancy celebrity wedding in 2006 but divorced 5 years later. According to their prenup, Katie received $400,000 as child support for their daughter Suri of whom she received full custody.

His Relationship With Church of Scientology

His first wife Rogers introduced him to the Church of Scientology. In 1990, Cruise renounced his Catholic beliefs and embraced The Church Of Scientology, claiming that its teachings had cured him of dyslexia that had plagued his life. Rumor has it that the movement which Cruise is a dedicated member of did not allow him to see Suri, his only biological daughter. There were also rumors that he tried to ‘brainwash’ Holmes into joining the cult-like religion. The religion is to be blamed for his failed marriages to both Holmes and Kidman.

Is Tom Cruise Gay?

Despite several speculations and questions about his sexuality, the actor has never come out as gay. In fact, he couldn’t qualify as gay if you put into consideration, the fact that he married three among the sexiest women in Hollywood.

Notably, Cruise and John Travolta have been roped in rumors in the past, claiming that the “Mission Impossible” actor and the “Grease” star shared a secret gay romance that has secretly lasted for three decades.

What Happened To His Teeth?

While he now has what many may describe as the perfect smile, thanks to dental surgery, Tom Cruise is left with one tooth right in the exact center of his face.

The actor who stands at 1.7m has reportedly had so much dental surgery, the entire top row of his dentition is completely different from what it used to be.
