Ever since his meteoric rise to stardom after 1988’s Cocktail, the world just cannot get enough Tom Cruise. But little is known about the man, so we wanted to compile a list of facts to paint a clearer picture of the enigmatic star. For example, the same year he starred in Cocktail, he also starred in a charming indie flick Rain Man. What’s more, as an elder statesman of a small religious sect based in Los Angeles, Cruise claims to be able to heal people, Jedi-style, without touching them. Similarly, he’s claimed to have found the cure for depression (spoiler alert: it isn’t antidepressants). He also divorced all three of his ex-wives at the exact same age! The man has lived a life!

Read on for more insight into the reclusive character.
