Unlike them, however, Tom Cruise is...well, he's just Tom Cruise.
Ageless at 54, he's still entirely unique when it comes to the certain punch he brings to a movie.
Serial monogamy, no strings attached, boyfriend swapping with your squad, making it Instagram official—there are so many different ways to date.
Even a lot of the couples who've been together for decades are on their second (or third) marriages.
In a business where every star banks on the wrong film once in awhile, Cruise's list of credits is remarkably solid.
Even among the box office busts, he's usually a pretty good reason to watch anyway.If something's not working, you've got to face it and move on." Asked about settling down, he said, "I don't know if I could get married.Right now, in my present state of mind, I don't believe so. You can't say, 'Okay, let's keep that thought—I'll be back to you in a couple of months when I finish this.' But I do enjoy being in a relationship." MCaulfield/Wire They would've been a hard couple to miss, such as when they ran into each other in 2002 at the 1st Annual Entertainment Industry Foundation "Love Rocks" Concert, but it wasn't until around 2008 that the entertainment icon opened up about her mid-'80s fling with Cruise. Reminiscent of what De Mornay said about him being an innocent, the singer recalled, "He was shy.And aside from having that increasingly rare magnetic presence—the man can host Matt Lauer back in 2006 when he and Katie Holmes burst onto the scene as a couple.Katie, in fact, was sitting right off to the side while Cruise gave the interview, and the screen would occasionally flash back to the "I'm just living my life, Matt.He said he felt like such a boob in school and nobody talked to him.We went on a date once for dinner in a New York restaurant and the waitress was from his old school.He told me she never talked to him back in school, but now he was recognized he got all her attention.It could have been a great big romance because I was crazy for him." On in 2013, Cher said Cruise definitely made her "top five" list of lovers in life. She was dating a friend of his at the time, but ultimately they got together."It was a long, long time ago and neither one of us ever talked about it and I don't know why," she told Andy Cohen. Though he didn't think he was ready for marriage in the summer of 1986, they quietly tied the knot on May 9, 1987, in upstate New York. His mother, Mary Lee South, told her new daughter-in-law was "top notch." Having previously been married to Scientology counselor Jim Rogers, Mimi's the one who's said to have turned Cruise on to the religion. (Rogers, meanwhile, has since cut ties with Scientology.) They announced they were divorcing in January 1990. Some of the tabloids brought it up all the time, and exaggerated the gap between Tom and me."When we were together he was such a private person. "Is that the story, that I was bored with that child and threw him over, chewed him up and spat him out? At least for that period of time, it looked as though marriage wouldn't fit into his overall spiritual need. Every six months they seemed to add a year to my age. That's what I wish I'd done." They adopted two children, Isabella and Connor, and starred in two more films together, the period epic , which they admitted later was an extremely intense shoot, made all the more devastating by director Stanley Kubrick's death before the film was finished.
