Biography

Rogers was born Miriam Spickler in Coral Gables, Florida, daughter of Philip J. Spickler, a civil engineer. Rogers is 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.

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 controversial The Rapture (1991). 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.

Having played high stakes poker as a teenager, Rogers took up competitive poker in 2003, and finished in the money in her first major tournament at the World Poker Tour's 240 player Shooting Stars main event No-Limit Texas hold 'em tournament in San Jose, California, on March 4, 2004. She is also on the board of directors of the World Poker Tour.

Rogers is one of the "famous faces" due to being a regular player on the online poker website Hollywood Poker which is run in conjunction with Ongame Network. In July 2006, she finished in the money (33rd place) at the $1000 Ladies' No-Limit Hold 'em World Series of Poker event, winning $5,132.
