Sorkin: My very first movie was A Few Good Men, which was an adaptation of my play.There was an executive on the movie who gave me a note: "If Tom Cruise and Demi Moore aren't going to sleep with each other, why is Demi Moore a woman? But this is where having a near-eidetic memory comes in handy because I immediately thought of this line from Roger Ebert's 1991 review of the movie: Given decades of Hollywood convention, we might reasonably expect romance to blossom between [Cruise and Moore], providing a few gratuitous love scenes before the courtroom finale, but no: They're strictly business - so much so that it seems a little odd that these two good-looking, unmarried young people don't feel any mutual attraction.That was the same year of Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling, one of the strongest female characters of that decade.
Young Tom spent his boyhood always on the move, and by the time he was 14 he had attended 15 different schools in the U. While in high school, he developed an interest in acting and abandoned his plans of becoming a priest, dropped out of school, and at age 18 headed for New York and a possible acting career.
The next 15 years of his life are the stuff of legends.
She grew up believing him to be her biological father.
Both Danny and Virginia were alcoholic, and their verbal arguments escalated into beatings.
He made his film debut with a small part in Endless Love (1981) and from the outset exhibited an undeniable box office appeal to both male and female audiences.
Though below average height and not particularly handsome in the traditional sense, within 5 years Tom Cruise was starring in some of the top grossing films of the 1980s including Top Gun (1986); The Color of Money (1986), Rain Man (1988) and Born on the Fourth of July (1989).Cruise's family resided in near-poverty, because Cruise's father would not pay child support after his estrangement from the family when his son was eleven.Cities in which Tom lived included Ottawa, Ontario (where he attended Lisgar Collegiate Institute), Louisville, Kentucky, Winnetka, Illinois and Wayne, New Jersey.Despite the recent scrutinizing media coverage of his personal life, mainly regarding his support of Scientology and his related criticism of psychiatry, he remains a star of worldwide renown.Cruise has German ancestry from his paternal great-grandparents, William Reibert Gay and Charlotta Louise Voelker; and Welsh ancestry from his paternal great-great-grandfather, Dylan Henry Mapother, who emigrated from Flint, Wales to Louisville, Kentucky in 1850.She has gone through many roles, just as how she has gone through a lot in life.
