Tom Cruise may be Hollywood royalty set to have a huge night at the upcoming Oscars ceremony, but his career has been littered with eyebrow-raising moments.

Cruise, 60, is in the running to win his first Academy Award as producer for Top Gun: Maverick which is up for best film along with another five awards.

The Top Gun sequel is also nominated for best adapted screenplay, best original song, best film editing, best sound and best visual effects.

Cruise started his career in 1981, building an impressive list of achievements, including bringing in $11.5 billion at the box office worldwide, making him one of the highest grossing actors of all time.

But in his 42 years in the spotlight, Cruise has made headlines for some of his antics, his commitment to the Church of Scientology and remarks about psychotherapy.

We’ve put together some of his most outlandish moments.


Cruise became a member of the Church of Scientology after being converted by his first wife, Mimi Rogers, in 1986. He publicly disclosed his involvement in the church in 1992.

Former Scientologist Claire Headley, who is one of its critics, has described the church as “a dangerous cult that destroyed my family.”

The Church of Scientology says on its website: “The ultimate goal of Scientology is true spiritual enlightenment and freedom for all.” Headley and her husband, Marc, filed a lawsuit against the church in 2009, alleging that it had violated human trafficking laws and human rights. The claim was dismissed.

Cruise is very good friends with Scientology’s chairman, David Miscavige, whose wife, Shelly Miscavige, has not been seen publicly since August 2007.

  1. It’s impossible to understand Tom Cruise’s mindset without identifying the influence of Scientology, such as his antagonism to psychiatrists and related prescribed medications.
