Answer: Rebecca De Mornay

Rebecca De Mornay played Lana in "Risky Business", in only her second movie role. She played Peyton in "The Hand that Rocked the Cradle" (1992), in arguably her biggest role. Other notables appearances include "Backdraft" (1991) and "Identity" (2002).
Annabella Sciorra played the lead in, "The Hand that Rocked the Cradle" (1992), and Julianne Moore played a minor role the the same film (in one of her first movies). Diane Lane had a minor role in Cruise's second movie "Taps"(1981).

Answer: Kelly McGillis

Kelly McGillis, in her breakout role, played an Amish woman against Harrison Ford's hard-nosed Philadelphia detective, John Book in "Witness" (1985). She played a radically different role as Maverick's fiery girl in "Top Gun" ("Take my Breath Away" - Berlin (1986)).
Meg Ryan had a small role as Carole wife of ("ER"'s Anthony Edwards) Goose in the same movie.
Lea Thompson played opposite Cruise in "All the "Right Moves" (1983), and Shelley Long played opposite Cruise in one of his less memorable movies, "Losin' It" (1983).

Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, in her second role, was cast behind Michelle Pfeiffer, (who was only known for "Grease 2" (1982) at the time) and Al Pacino in "Scarface" (1982). Three years later she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in "The Color of Money".

She had second billing behind Ed Harris in "The Abyss" (1989) and was cast behind Diane Lane, Mark Wahlberg and George Clooney in The Perfect Storm" (2000)".
4. In "Rain Man" (1988), Tom Cruise deferred top billing to Dustin Hoffman who won an Oscar for playing the eponymous role. However Cruise's character, Charlie Babbit had the girl, Susanna, who was played by which Italian actress?

Answer: Valeria Golino

Valeria Golino was offered the role of Susanna soon after she moved from her native Italy to Los Angeles. She starred in the two "Hot Shot" movies (1991, 1993) but perhaps her greatest compliment was she auditioned for the roles of "Pretty Woman" (1990) and "Flatliners" (1990), losing out only to the final choice in both movies, Julia Roberts.
5. This actress was well known in Australia but not in the US when she met Tom Cruise on the set of "Days of Thunder" (1990).

They have not made a movie together since they were divorced in 2001. What is this actress's name?

Answer: Nicole Kidman

Kidman and Cruise met on the set of "Days of Thunder" (1990) a kind of "Top Gun" (1986) on wheels. They were married on 24 December 1990 and starred in an Irish/American historical tale "Far and Away" in 1992. Both starred in "Eyes Wide Shut" (1999) which was Stanley Kubrick's last movie. They divorced in 2001. "Dead Calm" (1989) was an Australian film that brought Kidman international recognition (Cruise was not in this movie), but it was in "Days of Thunder" that she became a Hollywood star, arguably due to the Cruise/Kidman chemistry witnessed in the movie.
Mimi Rogers and Katie Homes were married to Tom Cruise between 1987-1989 and 2006-2012 respectively but neither ever appeared in a movie with him.
Kirsten Dunst appeared with Tom in "Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles" (1994) but was never connected romantically to him.
6. In "The Firm" (1993), this actress played Abbie, wife to Cruise's Mitch McDeere, a new lawyer in a law firm with a dark past. This was only her fifth movie but she had third billing in only her second movie, which was a blockbuster called "Basic Instinct" (1992). What was her name?

Answer: Jeanne Tripplehorn

Jeanne Tripplehorn had third billing in "Basic Instinct" (1992) alongside Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone (Leilani Sarelle played Roxy, a small but crucial role in the same movie). In "The Firm", Tripplehorn had second billing despite the cast including Gene Hackman, Ed Harris, Holly Hunter, and David Strathairn.

She also starred in "Sliding Doors" (1998) and "Mickey Blue Eyes" (1999). She married actor Leland Orser in 2000 and has a son. She was cast as the female leads in both "Pulp Fiction" (1994) and "Four Weddings and a Funeral" (1994) but had to turn down both roles.

She was replaced by Uma Thurman and Andie McDowell respectively.

Kelly Preston, along with "Jerry Maguire" is probably best known for "Twins" (1988) and "For the Love of the Game" (1989).
Demi Moore starred with Cruise in "A Few Good Men" (1992).

Cameron Diaz later starred with Cruise in "Knight and Day" (2010). Julianne Moore starred in "Magnolia" (1999) alongside Cruise.
9. In "War of the Worlds" (2005), the role of the girl is smaller than the normal Cruise movie, as she (Mary-Ann) and Cruise's character (Ray) have separated.

Miranda Otto played Cruise's separated wife in "War of the Worlds" (2005). She played Eowyn alongside Cate Blanchett (Galadriel) in "The Two Towers" (2002) and "Return of the King" (2003). Her greatest roles, arguably have been in the Australian movies, "Love Serenade" (1996) and "South Solitary" (2010). Both movies received little exposure outside of Australia.

She had a small but crucial role in "What Lies Beneath" (2000) with Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer. Naomi Watts starred in an Australian commercial in the 80s where she, as a young woman, had to choose between a date with Tom Cruise or a roast lamb dinner at home (She chose the roast lamb.).
10. In "Oblivion" (2013), Cruise stars as Jack, in a post-apocalyptic world, with two less known co-stars whose characters may or may not be his wives. One of these actresses is British actress Andrea Riseborough, whose prior, better known works were "Happy Go Lucky" (2008) and "Made in Dagenham" (2010), both with Sally Hawkins (Ginger in "Blue Jasmine" [2013]). The other co-star, a tall leggy, French Ukrainian sounds like she should have been cast as eye candy in a implausible spy movie. What was her name?

Answer: Olga Kurylenko

Olga Kurylenko got her big break as the "Bond" Girl in "Quantum of Solace" (2008) playing opposite Daniel Craig, whose James Bond character was still nursing his grief from losing the love of his life, Vesper Lynd (Eva Green) in 2006's "Casino Royale". Olga Kurylenko won a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress and an Empire Award for Best Actress for this role. For the "Oblivion" role (where Cruise turned 50 during shooting), Noomi Rapace, Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Olivia Wilde all auditioned for the role with Chastain winning but withdrawing because of a schedule conflict. The role subsequently went to Kurylenko.
The other three actresses are from "Bond" films "Casino Royale" (2006) and "Skyfall" (2012), another "Bond" movie. Murino, from Sardinia plays Solange Dimitrios, her first English speaking role. Milièeviæ, born in Sarejevo but moving to the US when she was five, plays Le Chiffre's girlfriend, Valenka. She played Tom Cruise's former girlfriend in "Jerry Maguire" (1996).
