Taking You to The Cruise of Tom Cruise’s Life

Born in New York City, Tom Cruise is the son of special education teacher Late Mary Lee. Tom Cruise is said to have English, German and Irish ancestry. 

Starting days of Tom Cruise were not much happening as he has to live in poverty and he didn’t like his father much. Part of his childhood was spent in Canada, where he was first introduced to drama when he was in 4th grade at Robert Hopkins Public School. 

Our dashing Tom Cruise attended some 145 schools in his 14 years. In his senior school, he played football for his school team, but he was cut from the team after the team caught him drinking beer before a game. 

When he was 18, he moved back to New York to peruse his career in acting. He worked as a busboy during his struggling years. It was 1981 when he appeared on the Hollywood screen in the movie Endless Love and later followed by Taps. 

However, All the Right Moves and Risky Business are said to be 2 movies that changed his way of life in 1983. In 1988 he was featured in the movie – Cocktail which went on for nomination for the Razzie Award for Worst Actor.
