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, became 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. Later, she left Scientology. In 2003, she married producer Chris Ciaffa; they have two children, Lucy (born 1995) and Charles (born 2001).
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). In the final season of "Dawson's Creek" (1998), she played the mother of Jen Lindley, played by Michelle Williams. She also appeared as the mother of Vanessa Kensington in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997).
Famous for her voluptuous physique (38D-26-36 according to Celebrity Sleuth magazine), she was fully nude for much of the entire 93 minutes of Full Body Massage (1995). Also notable was her nude modeling scene at the age of 48 in The Door in the Floor written by John Irving. In March 1993 she did a nude layout and interview in Playboy magazine.
In 2006 she starred in a Fox sitcom, The Loop.
