Connor Cruise Makes First Post As Dad Tom Cruise Reportedly Goes Through Religious Crisis

Tom’s two oldest children hardly ever make headlines, but recently, they both posted updates online despite their father’s ongoing theological struggle. Only a few weeks after Isabella, the daughter of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, shared a rare update on social media, Connor, the son of the former marriage, has done the same, providing a unique look into his life outside of the spotlight.

Connor Cruise shared video of himself playing golf, one of his favorite sports, on his Instagram Story. Connor could be seen hitting the golf ball off into the distance, which was surrounded by hilly, green patches, while wearing light pants, a dark blue top, and white sneakers.

Unsurprisingly, Connor didn’t offer any deeper updates into his personal life. Despite having famous parents, he’s lived most of his adult life away from the spotlight, and reportedly resides full-time in Florida. Connor did make a brief public appearance at a premiere for his dad’s latest Mission: Impossible movie, and has even dabbled in acting, with roles in films like 2008’s Seven Pounds and 2012’s Red Dawn.

Tom Cruise’s Daughter Is Private, But Also Gave An Online Update

Isabella, Connor’s older sister, has also withdrawn from the public after reaching maturity. She and her husband reside in London, and although she rarely posts on social media, she did provide an update online last month. Bella uploaded a selfie to her 52,000-follower Instagram account with the simple message, “What a summer.” Green flora could have been an indication as to how the graphic artist spent the warm season, but Bella didn’t provide any other information.

However, Isabella has used social media before to promote her Scientology beliefs, something she shares with Tom Cruise, who’s been one of the church’s most high-profile members for decades. In 2019, Bella revealed she’d been promoted to the role of an auditor in the church and expressed how much the religion had helped her personally throughout the years.

“It’s a few meltdowns and running to the bathroom to have a mini episode, but it is worth everything because you will get through,” she said in a promotional video shared online.

“This is a gift to yourself and so many others. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t going to be an auditor or aren’t going to join staff,” Bella went on. “If you are going to make it as a being for the long run you NEED this. That’s the truth… so stop messing around and get going.”

Both Tom’s Kids Are Scientologists, But He May Have Quit

Given that Tom Cruise is rumored to be severing ties with the church, the fact that both Connor and Isabella are practicing Scientologists may strain their relationship with their father. Tom hasn’t been spotted at the UK Scientology headquarters in years, according to a report from last month, indicating a schism between him and the religion. It was reported in 2021 that the action actor was suffering a “religious crisis” and was questioning his faith, which sparked rumors that he was unhappy with the secrecy surrounding the religion.

Though the rumors about Tom’s opinion on Scientology continue to run rampant, neither the actor nor his children have addressed the speculation.
