Considered one of the world's biggest movie stars, Tom Cruise never aspired to be an actor. A sports star at his high school, Cruise played football on the local team as a linebacker, and was a star in the school's field hockey team. His classmates pegged him as a future sports star, and the future acting legend spent most of his free time practicing sports and occasionally acting in school productions.
The obsession with sports, however, wasn't so much a passion of Cruise's as much as it was a form of escape from an abusive and dangerous father. As a young child in a New York home, Cruise was intimidated and bullied constantly by his father. He recalled being beaten and threatened as a child, and grew to fear his father early in his life.
