Tom Cruise, Initial Life
Born on August 3, 1962 in Syracuse, New York, the son of an electronic engineer and a teacher, Tom Cruise is the only boy of four children. He never got along with his authoritarian father and even went so far as to say that he was a “thug and a coward.”
So, all that was left behind, because as a result of his parents’ divorce in 1974, he returned to the United States with his mother and sisters, thus leaving the Canadian city of Ottawa, where they had settled for several years, to go live. to Kentucky.
In his new home, and to help his family with very limited financial resources, he did odd jobs, such as mowing the neighbors’ lawns. A few years later, in New Jersey, he began his acting studies and attended various castings while working as a waiter.
“This is how I have lived my life: I have never been late for a set. I make films that I believe in. I feel privileged to be able to do what I love”, he reveals to explain what he considers his formula to become the superstar he is today: a man who at 60 years old, rich and famous, aspires to continue working with the same impetus, enthusiasm and vocation forever. In his vocabulary the word retreat does not yet exist.
