Connor Cruise, 24, is all grown up! The adopted son of Tom Cruise, 56, and Nicole Kidman, 51, was photographed leaving Madeo restaurant in Beverly Hills on Thursday night, January 24 — a rare outing for the usually private star. Connor sported a grizzly beard as paparazzi caught him exiting the Italian celeb hot spot. See how much he’s grown up in NEW PHOTOS from his night out!
The quiet Cruise kept it casual for dinner. He wore a navy blue long sleeve shirt, in which he pushed up the sleeves to show off his tattoos on his right arm. Connor sported black pants with matching sneakers. He also accessorized with a plain black watch on his left wrist.
Connor’s famous parents, actors Tom and Nicole adopted him during their 11-year marriage from 1990 to 2001. They also adopted his sister Isabella, 25. Both children have remained out of the spotlight for the most part — not engaging in the Hollywood scene. Connor recently made headlines after he moved into Scientology’s Sandcastle resort in Clearwater, Florida, according to Daily Mail, which describes the residence as a “religious retreat” owned by the Scientology Church. And, as you may know, Tom is one of the church’s most notoriously private A-list members.
Connor’s mother Nicole recently spoke in detail about her adopted kids and even addressed their life choices. “I’m very private about all that. I have to protect all those relationships,” she told Aussie publication, Who Magazine, in November of her relationship with her kids. “I know 150 per cent that I would give up my life for my children because it’s what my purpose is.”
She continued: “I think that’s so important because if that is taken away from a child, to sever that in any child, in any relationship, in any family – I believe it’s wrong. So that’s our job as a parent, to always offer unconditional love.”
The Top Gun actor also has a daughter Suri, 12, with his third wife Katie Holmes, 40. Meanwhile, Nicole has daughters Sunday Rose, 10, and Faith Margaret, 8, with her second and current husband Keith Urban, 51.
