He then met second wife Nicole Kidman on the set of their movie “Days of Thunder.” They got married in 1990, and later adopted two children, Isabella and Connor. Shortly after, he began dating Penelope Cruz, but their relationship ended in 2004.
In April 2005, he started seeing Katie Holmes, and in October of that year the couple announced they were expecting a child.
Their daughter Suri was born in 2006, and Cruise and Holmes wed not long afterwards. Cruise is a well-known member and advocate of the Church of Scientology.
In 2013, Cruise reportedly admitted that his split from Holmes was due in part to her not fully embracing the religion to Scientology.
