It appears at middle age Tom Cruise has been giving some consideration to using some of his enormous wealth to buy his own island. The New Zealand Herald reported on Sept. 1, 2013, Tom Cruise may be planning to buy an island. Rumours have been gathering that the superstar Tom Cruise is planning to buy an impregnable island located off the coast of Northland, New Zealand.
According to sources Cruise wants a small, secluded island for his family. He loves the New Zealand area and the country in general. In 2003 Cruise spent a lot of time in New Zealand filming "The Last Samurai." The source has said, "The idea is to to build an impregnable island fortress where Tom can go with his family." Although real estate agents in the Far North area of New Zealand have insisted there were no islands for sale, a luxury real estate mover, Charlie Brendon-Cook, has said such transactions aren't usually listed on the open market.
Cruise certainly can afford to consider such a luxury in life. Celebrity Networth has reported Tom Cruise's net worth is about $250 million. Cruise first started acting in high school. He had his first big break with "Risky Business," which placed him on a list of up and coming stars and also earned him his first Golden Globe nomination. Over twenty of Cruise's films have grossed well over $100 million across the world. His story sure is an inspiration for young men and women who want to check out a career in Hollywood.
