Tom Cruise and Demi Moore compared

Posted on

Real name: Demi Guynes

Vital stats: 32; divorced musician Freddy Moore, married Bruce Willis; three kids (Rumer, 6; Scout, 4; Tallulah Belle, 23 months).

Big hit: 1990’s Ghost ($217.6 million).

Role she’d rather forget: Moore plays a terrorized teen in the 1982 3-D Alien rip-off, Parasite.

Shared screen with megastar spouse in… Mortal Thoughts (1991).

Core audience: Females over 35, according to movie-audience pollster CinemaScore.

Current asking price: $12.5 million.

Casting brouhaha: Would’ve whipped novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne into a tizzy (if he were still alive) by portraying puritan Hester Prynne as a randy babe in The Scarlet Letter.

But what I’d really like to do is…become curator of the American Crafts Museum — Moore’s opening a show palace for her collection of dolls and dollhouses in Hailey, Idaho.

Real name: Thomas Cruise Mapother IV

Vital stats: 33; divorced actress Mimi Rogers, married actress Nicole Kidman; two kids (both adopted — Isabella, 3; Connor, 11 months).

Big hit: 1986’s Top Gun ($176.7 million).

Role he’d rather forget: Cruise played a preppy virgin gunning to get laid in the 1983 south-of-the-border teen romp, Losin’ It.

Shared screen with megastar spouse in… Far and Away (1992).

Core audience: Males and females 25-35, according to CinemaScore.

Current asking price: $20 million.

Casting brouhaha: Whipped gothic novelist Anne Rice (and fans of her bloodsucker series) into a tizzy when he was cast as Lestat in Interview With the Vampire.

But what I’d really like to do is…be racecar driver A.J. Foyt — Cruise’s lead foot in Days of Thunder wasn’t an act.
