When Tom Cruise has a girlfriend, the world wants to know about it. The last time he was with a woman, and no one cared, was when he married his first wife. She was Mimi Rogers, and they married in 1987. She was an actress who was also heavily involved in the Church of Scientology. She was Tom Cruise’s GF for a moment, and then she was his wife. Their marriage did not last long, but she’s the woman credited with welcoming the iconic actor into the Scientology lifestyle before he was a megastar. We are sure the church doesn’t mind the fact that he went on to become one of the most famous actors in the world.
Tom Cruise’s GF Turned First Wife Wasn’t Interesting
We don’t say that in a manner that means she, herself, was uninteresting. She was not. However, he simply wasn’t as famous as he was now, and the world did not care as much about his wedding to her. Even though he married her right as Top Gun was released, he still wasn’t the Tom Cruise he is today. When Tom Cruise’s GF became his wife in 1987, the world was only mildly interesting. However, their divorce and his subsequent relationships became a much larger topic.
Tom Cruise’s GF Nicole Kidman and Days of Thunder
It was 1990 – the same year Cruise divorced his first wife – that he was working with Nicole Kidman on Days of Thunder. They were married before the year was out, and the world paid serious attention. She was a huge actress. He was now a huge actor. The world cared. They adopted two children together, and their marriage seemed happy. For a moment, that is. In 2001, Cruise filed for divorce from his then-pregnant wife, Nicole Kidman. The world thought the divorce news shocked her into a miscarriage, but she later clarified that her pregnancy was ectopic and would never be viable.
Tom Cruise’s GF Katie Holmes Was His Third Wife
It was 2005 when Cruise began dating Katie Holmes. The world admitted thought their relationship was a strange one. He was much older than the young sweetheart. However, it was his Oprah couch jumping moment that really freaked everyone out. By the time they’d been together all of six months, Holmes was pregnant, and they were engaged. The couple was married not long after little Suri Cruise was born in 2006. The world still thought this one was strange. When Holmes filed for divorce from Cruise in 2012, it was the first and only thing about their marriage that the world felt was normal and right – it never worked. However, it was also rumored at the time that he had auditions to find a good wife (at the church’s insistence), and she was one of the ones the church found acceptable. It’s all strange, and no one knows what is true and what is not. It makes for a fascinating story, though, and it’s one that Cruise and the church have always denied.
Tom Cruise’s GFs Over the Years
Before his divorce from Katie Holmes, he didn’t do much to keep his private life private. However, the stories, the rumors, and the many things going around about Tom Cruise following that relationship made him feel a little more like privacy was a good idea. However, many people had forgotten that before that marriage – and even before others – Tom Cruise’s GFs included some of the most famous women in the world.
- Melissa Gilbert
- Rebecca De Mornay
- Patti Scialfa
- Heather Locklear
- Penelope Cruz
- Laura Prepon
- Hayley Atwell
At some point, there were rumors that he tried to pursue a relationship with Colombian actress Sofia Vergara. However, it was later reported that their religious differences did not allow them to ever start a real relationship. It’s been said more than once that his religion plays a huge role in everything about his life, from his finances to his marriages, so we believe it.
Other Women Over the Years
There have been many women who have been rumored to date Tom Cruise. However, the only one we can even begin to confirm is British actress Hayley Atwell. And this one only works because they were together before they broke up, then they got back together and recently ended things again. Though neither confirmed this relationship, the couple did not deny it. It seems many people close to both confirmed that they were together and on and off a few times. However, we may never know. Tom Cruise has become something of a recluse in terms of his privacy, and he seems to be the kind of guy who is not going to share his personal life with us any longer.
