Date of Birth : Jan 29th 1956
It’s fair to say that after 20 years and over 50 film appearances, Mimi Rogers should be praised for her variety of roles and acting capabilities, not for a brief marriage to a Hollywood star. In the early 1980s, she began to carve a niche for herself in Hollywood, appearing on television and in films. It was her role in Someone to Watch Over Me (1987) that got her noticed and was her springboard to stardom. Cemented by a marriage to Tom Cruise, an already established young actor, Mimi went on to appear in Hider in the House (1989), Desperate Hours (1990), and The Doors (1991). After her marriage to Cruise ended in 1990, she appeared in a controversial movie analyzing religion in America. The Rapture (1991), directed by Michael Tolkin, proved a hit and delighted audiences, creating many a debate over the film’s subject material. She played a bored telephone exchange operator who swaps a sinful life of sex and swinging with other couples for a devout religious one, ending unexpectedly in disaster. A subsequent photo spread and interview in Playboy magazine in 1993 provided fans with an insight into her life with Cruise and her film career so far.
