Connor Cruise To Follow In Tom Cruise’s Footsteps

Connor Cruise, 14, the adopted son of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, has landed a role in a remake of the fantastically bad ’80s flick “Red Dawn.” Since Tom’s production company is producing the movie, Connor may have had a little helping scoring the role. But who is this kid, anyway?

  • Connor played a younger version of Will Smith’s character in “Seven Pounds.”
  • Recently, a woman named Claire Elisabeth Fields Cruise claimed she and Tom Cruise were childhood sweethearts, and that she and Michael Jackson are Connor’s biological parents. [OK! Magazine]
  • His first crush was Miley Cyrus. Tom paired the two so he could learn the ropes of the child-acting world. Too bad Miley only dates older dudes. [Star Magazine]
  • When Connor is out, he usually goes incognito in sunglasses and a hoodie. [The Hollywood Gossip]
