Tom Cruise Divorced All of His Wives When They Turned 33 and the Reason May Be Related to Scientology

10 months ago

Tom Cruise is a huge deal in Hollywood, starring in some of the biggest blockbuster movies ever. But when it comes to his personal life, things have gotten a bit rocky. He’s been married and divorced 3 times, and each time it’s been a major gossip story. Strangely enough, there’s a weird similarity between all these splits.

He got married 3 times.


It was May 9, 1987, when Tom Cruise and Mimi Rogers took the walk down the aisle. They didn’t throw a massive Hollywood bash — instead, they opted for a more intimate gathering. At the time, Tom Cruise was making a name for himself, while Mimi was already an established actress and producer. Their wedding might not have been splashed all over the tabloids, but it marked a moment when 2 Hollywood talents came together.

Unfortunately, it didn’t have the longevity many hoped for. In 1990, after 3 years of marriage, they went their separate ways. The reasons behind their split remained relatively private, giving rise to speculations.

Years after their divorce, Mimi confessed, “What did annoy me was the age thing. Every 6 months, the press seemed to add another year to my age. If we were still married, the press would have me in my 60s by now.”

Less than a year after finalizing his divorce from Mimi Rogers, Tom and Nicole Kidman, another well-known figure in the entertainment industry, tied the knot. Their marriage became a widely recognized and frequently discussed partnership.

Even though they initially seemed like a glamorous and happy couple, Cruise and Kidman faced their fair share of challenges in their marriage. In 2001, after being together for 11 years and adopting 2 kids, they publicly announced their separation, finalizing their divorce later that same year.

They mostly kept the specific reasons for their split private, but years after, reflecting on her marriage to Cruise, Kidman shared, “I was so young when I got married. I look back now, and I’m like, ’What?’”


Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes had that love-at-first-sight thing going on. The connection was so intense that they decided to tie the knot just 2 months after meeting. Their wedding, in November 2006, was a total spectacle at a stunning Italian castle. The guest list was a mix of big-shot Hollywood names and other important folks.

Then, out of the blue in 2012, after 6 years of marriage, they dropped the bombshell of their divorce. It felt like it happened in the blink of an eye, and Katie Holmes seemed taken aback.

But even after all that, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes both kept on doing their thing in the entertainment world. They’ve got a daughter named Suri, born in 2006. The whole custody agreement and concerns about their daughter’s privacy became a huge deal in the media circus.

These 3 marriages share an unexpected and peculiar coincidence.

Starting with Mimi Rogers, then Nicole Kidman, and later Katie Holmes, the actor’s sequence of marriages has unfolded in an intriguing way, sparking discussions about the possible reasons behind it. What’s intriguing is that all of these marriages ended when the women reached the age of 33.

Interestingly, Tom Cruise has never remained married to a woman past the age of 33. His divorces around the age of 33 have sparked some curiosity. Some folks think there’s a connection to a special number in Scientology, a religion he’s associated with. Scientology is all about helping people find spiritual understanding and freedom. Just like the number 33 symbolizes guidance, Scientology aims to help people grow and discover themselves.

Scientology started in Arizona, which happens to be on the 33rd parallel — a significant line on the globe. The number 33 is seen as a big deal in spiritual beliefs, like someone who guides others with wisdom. Tom Cruise is known for his involvement in Scientology and its teachings. However, we can’t say for sure if his divorces at 33 are directly tied to this number thing.

This situation bears a striking resemblance to Leonardo DiCaprio, who also drew attention to his unconventional pattern of dating considerably younger women and parting ways around their 25th birthdays.

Even though there’s this marriage coincidence with Tom, we can’t deny the amazing and unique soul that he consistently shows, whether he’s in the spotlight or not.
