Tom Cruise and his mother were close, he even believes that he got his passion for acting from her. Mary Lee Pfeiffer was a teacher when she married Cruise’s father, Thomas Cruise Mapother III. The two later broke up and Mary remarried Jack South, Tom Cruise’s stepfather.
May her soul rest in eternal peace.
