Mimi Rogers (born January 27, 1956) is an American movie actress and competitive         
poker player.                                                                           
Rogers was born Miriam Spickler in Coral Gables, Florida, the daughter of Philip         
J. Spickler, a civil engineer. Rogers, whose father was Jewish and mother               
Episcopalian, was a member of the Church of Scientology. Her first husband,             
Jim Rogers, was also a Scientologist. They were married from 1977 until 1980.           
Her second husband was actor Tom Cruise; they were married from 1987 until 1990.         
She introduced Cruise to Scientology. She also led others besides Cruise to the         
church, including Sonny Bono and football player John Brodie, for whom she               
served as auditor. Later, she left Scientology.                                         
In 2003, she married producer Chris Ciaffa; they have two children, Lucy and             
Her breakthrough role was opposite Tom Berenger in Someone to Watch Over Me (1987).     
Since then, her career has largely been focused on independent films, including         
The Rapture (1991) and Dark Horse (1992). Although she continues to do                   
independent films, Rogers is certainly not averse to Hollywood. She has appeared         
in sci-fi films such as Lost in Space (1998), as well as the cult television             
series The X-Files (1998-99). She also appeared as the mother of Elizabeth               
Hurley's character in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), and on         
The Geena Davis Show.                                                                   
Famous for her voluptuous physique (38D-26-36 according to Celebrity Sleuth             
magazine), she was fully nude for virtually the entire 93 minutes of Full Body           
Massage (1995), which, for some, remains her most indelible role. Also notable           
was her revolving nude scene at the age of 48 in The Door in the Floor written           
by John Irving. As well as her nude roles as an actress, in March 1993 she did a         
nude layout (and an interview) in Playboy magazine.                                     
She recently starred in a Fox sitcom called, The Loop.
