Tom Cruise is one of the few Hollywood actors who can claim to have made as much money as he has. He’ll star in a new Mission Impossible film, as well as a sequel to Top Gun.
Despite the fact that he is approaching 60 years old, the actor remains at the forefront of Hollywood’s action genre. However, despite his enormous career and glamorous lifestyle, you might not know that the actor has ties to Kent.
He’s known to mix with the residents of Biggin Hill, so it’s a very specific link.
Although the town is best recognized for its participation in the Battle of Britain during WWII, Mr Cruise has given its citizens a new claim to fame.
The 59-year-old actor recently purchased a lavish home in the little neighborhood, which has less than 10,000 residents according to the 2011 Census. His house is said to be in a gated enclave with about 140 acres of land, which is exceedingly affluent (of course).
Not to mention the fact that Biggin Hill Airport isn’t far away and offers private planes, which will come in handy when Mr Cruise embarks on his journey. The actor has spent a lot of time in Bromley over the years, as he worked there on two Mission: Impossible movies in a row.
What could surprise some fans is that he’s spent a lot of time in this area, as he has ties to the South East. He used to own a £3 million mansion in nearby East Grinstead, Sussex, but he sold it in 2016. Regardless, something continues dragging him back to the UK, and he’s even been said to have spent time in lockdown at the town’s Saint Hill Manor.
The facility also houses the Church of Scientology’s British headquarters, and it’s no secret that he’s a member of the group.
Cruise loves spending time in England, according to a source close to him. “Tom has only lately moved to this new home, which feels like it’s in the countryside,” the source stated.
“He sees it as his country retreat, away from the madness of London.”
While the whereabouts of the legendary actor are well-known, few people are aware of his daughter’s mundane existence.
Isabella Kidman Cruise, 29, is the daughter of Tom and Nicole Kidman and has lived in South London with her British husband Max Parker for a while.
According to My London, the couple has shared a pet reptile and has resided in Croydon for some time. Cruise’s daughter, Bella, reportedly refused to reside in her father’s £342,000-per-month London penthouse in 2020.
Instead, Tom and Nicole’s adopted daughter felt that a life away from the spotlight would be better for her, and she settled in London.
According to reports, the actor owns a four-bedroom apartment with an indoor pool and spectacular views of London’s skyline at the historic Corinthia Residences.
Bella and her husband Max moved to Croydon in October 2017 to be closer to Max’s parents, according to reports.
A year after initially meeting, the couple married in 2015.
“I wouldn’t have known her if she’d walked up and hit me in the face,” Emma claimed of Bella to The Sun’s neighbor. Celebrity culture is not something I keep up with.
“We can see the red light of the tank since they have a reptile of some sort.” No one seems to know anything else.
“She has an enigmatic quality about her. She’s probably chosen to live her life away from the spotlight. I have no idea why she chose Croydon!”
Tom and Nicole Cruise adopted Bella in 1992, and they later adopted Connor Cruise, Bella’s biological younger brother.
