From Priest To Actor
Cruise grew born into a devout Catholic family and attended the Franciscan Seminary as a teen before breaking into the spotlight. But, while on his way to becoming a priest, Cruise decided to pursue acting instead.
A Difficult Start
Cruise’s upbringing was anything from pleasant. He was raised in near-poverty by an aggressive father who frequently moved the family. Cruise was very undersized for his age and was frequently bullied by other children. Cruise overcome his obstacles, and today he draws strength and inspiration from his past, as well as maintaining a close relationship with his mother.
