Notes

On her decision to pose nude for Playboy, Rogers told the Calgary Sun (April 4, 1998):

"I'm a great fan of nude art. I'm also proud of my body. I like being naked. I was given complete control of the shoot. That was essential.

"I knew I wanted to have a child so I realized I'd better get my nude pictures out there before I had a baby and my body changed. This is my permanent record of the way things were once with my body.

"The reaction I got from my Playboy pictures was very positive and it made me feel good, so that translates into a very positive experience."

Asked about whether she was concerned that her career was overshadowed by that of her then-husband Tom Cruise, Mimi Rogers told The Daily Telegraph (June 29, 2001):

"Not really. I was doing the work that I wanted to do, and if I didn't have the commercial success that Tom had well, that's just the luck of the draw. When I met him, his career was just beginning to take off, and neither of us could imagine that he would become such a big star in such a short time.

"But the stardom wasn't really a problem. What did annoy me, though, was the age thing. Some of the tabloids brought it up all the time, and exaggerated the gap between Tom and me. Every six months they seemed to add a year to my age. If Tom and I were still married, the tabloids would probably have me in my sixties by now."
