Executive summary: Someone To Watch Over Me

Something of a child prodigy, Rogers skipped several grades and graduated from high school at the age of 14. Instead of going to college, she spent the rest of her teen years volunteering with charity groups. She also accompanied her father, an accomplished card sharp, on trips to Tahoe, where she illegally (being underaged) played plenty of poker and blackjack. After dabbling with acting "as a hobby," she pursued it as a career, and in 1981 appeared in several episodes of Hill Street Blues. Two years later she had a supporting role in the quickly-canceled carny adventure show The Rousters. The next season she played a past-her-prime model on Lloyd Bridges's short-lived prime time soap opera Paper Dolls.

Her role as Michael Keaton's longsuffering girlfriend in Gung Ho attracted Rogers minor notice, and she followed that with her most acclaimed movie, Someone To Watch Over Me, in 1987. Her other noteworthy films include Trees Lounge, The Mirror Has Two Faces, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, and The Door in the Floor. In the late 1990s she played the recurring role of Agent Diana Fowley on The X-Files. Her many acting embarrassments include Lost in Space, The Geena Davis Show, and Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.

She is a member of the Church of Scientology, and met her first husband when he was her Scientology counselor. After that marriage ended, she brought Tom Cruise into the cult when they married in 1987. After their 1990 divorce, Rogers starred in The Rapture, as a bar-hopping slut who searched for salvation while the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse came galloping toward the end times.

In 1998, Rogers sued The Home Shopping Network for $10 million, claiming the TV retailers had fed false information to the National Enquirer, leading the newspaper to report that Rogers had thrown a temper tantrum on the set, "cursed like a sailor", and trashed a backstage room when she appeared on HSN to promote her line of exercise equipment. Rogers later dropped the suit, when a federal district court ruled in a preliminary hearing that the Enquirer's account was "largely true."
