Tom Cruise’s sister, Cass Mapother, is an American businesswoman who owns a restaurant called Cass’s Cafe in New Jersey. She also works behind the scene as an executive assistant to her popular brother – Tom Cruise. Cass Mapother was born sometime in 1964 to Thomas Cruise Mapother III and Mary Lee.
Cass Mapother and Tom Cruise have always been close since they were children. The siblings have been through a lot together as their parents got divorced in 1975, and their mother remarried shortly after to a man called John South, who raised all the children as his own. Their father later died in 1984 from complications arising from cancer, while their mother died peacefully in her sleep in 2018 when she was 80.
Tom Cruise is Cass Mapother’s Older Brother
Thomas Cruise Mapother IV, better known as Tom Cruise, was born on July 3, 1962, in Syracuse, New York, in the United States of America, and this makes him 61 year old currently. His sister, Cass Mapother, on the other hand, was born sometime in 1964 in the same Syracuse, New York, and that would put her current age at 59 years old. This means that Tom Cruise is older than his sister Cass by almost two years, and she is the only younger sister that he truly recognizes and has.
Tom Cruise seems to be the only one of the Mapother children that has a lot of information out in public about himself, as all the other Mapother children have decided not to make their personal affairs available to the public. They have managed to successfully stay under the radar for so long and are only seen out in public when they are attending one function or the other with their brother, Tom Cruise.
What Does Cass Mapother do for a living?
Cass Mapother is a businesswoman – a restauranteur, to be precise. She has a restaurant in New Jersey called Cass’s Cafe, and it is said to be a well-run and thriving establishment. There are several Cass Cafes all over America, but most – if not all are owned by other people, not Tom Cruise’s sister, Cass.
Due to the influence of her elder brother’s robust acting career, Cass has also been involved in the movie industry, but unlike her brother, she works behind the scene and has been credited as an executive assistant to Tom Cruise in about 11 movies some of which are Jack Reacher, Rock of Ages, Mission Impossible- Ghost Protocol, Oblivion, The Mummy, Top Gun Maverick amongst others.
Cass Mapother is also a Scientologist, just like her brother and pretty much the rest of her siblings. She is an Operations Director at the Scientology program and has been heavily involved in their activities for several decades now. Her husband is also a member of the Church of Scientology and has risen highly through the ranks to become recognized as Crimnon International President.
Meet Tom Cruise’s Sister, Cass Mapother’s Other Siblings
Tom Cruise’s sister, Cass Mapother, is not the only child of her parents, as she grew up in the Mapother household with three other siblings. Let us look briefly at who her siblings are:
Lee Ann Mapother
Lee Ann Mapother is the first of the Mapother siblings and the first child of the union between Thomas Cruise Mapother III and Mary Lee (nee Pfeifer). She was born on July 24, 1959, in Syracuse, New York, and spent most of her childhood in her place of birth, and she is currently 64 year old.
Lee Ann is a staunch member of the church of Scientology, just like her younger sister, Cass, and the rest of her siblings. She currently works with a production company in the United States of America, but before then, she worked as her brother’s publicist – a position she began in 2004. On July 14, 1975, Lee Ann got married to Stephen Burnett, and due to the fact that she lives a very private life, it is not clear if she currently has children or not.
Tom Cruise’s Sister, Marian Mapother, is the second child of the marriage between Thomas Cruise Mapother III and Mary Lee. She was born sometime in 1961, the exact date of which is not known to the public, and she is currently 62 year old. She is older than both Tom Cruise and Cass Mapother.
Marian was just 13 when her parents got divorced, and their mother had to remarry, which meant that she got a stepfather. Marian currently works as a Real Estate agent with Clearwater Real Estate in Florida, and she is said to be a very successful real estate agent.
She is married, but her husband’s identity is not public knowledge. She also has a grown-up son named Carl Henry – who plays the guitar for a band he helped form called (We Don’t Have A Name) WD HAN. Carl Henry is married to Marjorye Henry – who is the band manager of his band.
Tom Cruise is the most popular of the Mapother children to date. Tom was born on July 3, 1962, in Syracuse, New York, and he is currently 61 years old.
Tom and his father did not get along very well while he was growing up, and he has called his father a toxic, abusive, and coward. He credited his stepfather, John South, as the one who taught him all the virtues and morals while growing up and not his own biological father.
Tom Cruise is one of the major advocates and promoters of the Church of Scientology, and he maintains a very close relationship with the group’s leader. He has won 4 Academy Awards and 3 Golden Awards for the several movies he has featured in over the years. He has been featured in popular movies such as Mission Impossible as Agent Hunt (1986 to 2018), Knight and Day, Top Gun Maverick, Jack Reacher, Jerry Macquire, and several others.
Tom Cruises’s Sister, Cass Mapother, Has a Wonderful Relationship With Him
Tom Cruise’s sister, Cass Mapother, has always had an excellent relationship with her brother, Tom Cruise, right from when they were children and grew up together.
