Tom Cruise's personal life has been fodder for much gossip, from his association with the Church of Scientology to his relationships with wives Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes, and with other famous actresses such as Penelope Cruz. Despite some odd behaviour, such as the "couch-jumping" incident on the Oprah Winfrey show, Cruise remains a very popular and bankable movie star. I chose him as a portrait subject because--let's face it--the man is drop-dead gorgeous, and he continues to age quite well.
