Tom Cruise

The most recent books-on-tape I just finished listening to was "Tom Cruise : An Unauthorized Biography" by Andrew Morton. Nothing terribly surprising that I didn't know, but it was a good read (er... good listen).

It goes into a lot of the Church of Scientology's dubious practices, but also covers Tom's upbringing--including a rocky relationship with his father, and difficulties in school, such as his dyslexia (which according to him, was miraculously cured by Scientology, even though he was apparently on record stating it had already gone away, before he ever joined the church of Scientology). One big thing the book deals with I hadn't realized before was the extent of his relationship with David Miscavige (the head of the Church of Scientology). The book spends a while comparing their personalities (which are very similar), and mentions that Nicole Kidman felt kind of envious of their close relationship, feeling pushed aside at times. (No, it wasn't sexual in nature or anything like that, just a close friendship.)

I think this and Drew Barrymore's biography are the only two Hollywood celebrity bios I've read, but they were both very fascinating. I either happened to pick two extremely good ones to read, or Hollywood celebs really do have very interesting lives!
