Wife #1: Mimi Rogers
Married: May 1987, when she was 31 and he was 24
Separated: December 1989
Divorced: February 1990
Why they broke up: Reports vary, with some blaming Cruise's increasing success as a leading man shortly after they tied the knot, thanks to hit films like "Rain Man" and "Born on the Fourth of July." Others have pointed to rumors of fertility troubles and problems in the bedroom. After their divorce, Rogers added fuel to the fire. ''Tom was seriously thinking of becoming a monk," she "joked" to Playboy in 1993. "At least for that period of time, it looked as though marriage wouldn't fit into his overall spiritual need. And he thought he had to be celibate to maintain the purity of his instrument. Therefore it became obvious we had to split."
Did you know?: Rogers was the one who actually introduced Cruise to the Church of Scientology, in which he's still very active. She's since abandoned the religion.
