Miriam "Mimi" Rogers (née Spickler; born January 27, 1956) is an American film and television actress, producer and competitive poker player. Her notable film roles include Gung Ho (1986), Someone to Watch Over Me (1987), and Desperate Hours (1990). She garnered the greatest acclaim of her career for her role in the religious drama, The Rapture (1991), with critic Robin Wood applauding that she "gave one of the greatest performances in the history of the Hollywood cinema." Rogers has since appeared in Reflections on a Crime (1994), The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), Lost in Space (1998), Ginger Snaps (2000), The Door in the Floor (2004), and For a Good Time, Call... (2012). Her extensive work in television includes Paper Dolls (1984), Weapons of Mass Distraction (1997), The Loop (2006–2007), and recurring roles on The X-Files (1998–1999) and Two and a Half Men (2011–present) and Wilfred (2014). Early life Rogers was born Miriam Spickler at General Hospital in Coral Gables, Florida. Her father is Philip C. Spickler, a civil engineer. Her mother, Kathy Talent, was a former dance and drama major. Her father was Jewish and her mother was Episcopalian. Her father had become involved with Scientology before she was born, and the religion was part of her upbringing. The family lived in Virginia, Arizona, Michigan and England before settling in Los Angeles. She attended accelerated schools and graduated from high school at age 14. In place of college, she formulated her own program of study and also got involved in community theater and writing. Rogers later worked in a hospital for incapacitated patients outside Palo Alto, California and for six years she was a part-time social worker, involved in substance-abuse counseling. At the beginning of their acting careers, Rogers lived with Kirstie Alley. Career After her first marriage break-up, Rogers moved to Los Angeles to embark on an acting career. She studied acting with Milton Katselas for nine months and then sought an agent. She screen tested for the lead role in Body Heat that eventually went to Kathleen Turner. Her earlier roles included television appearances in Hill Street Blues (1981) as a love interest for officer Andy Renko (Charles Haid), and in Magnum, P.I. (1982). Between 1983 and 1984, she worked extensively in television as a series regular on The Rousters and as supermodel Blair Harper-Fenton in Paper Dolls. In 1986 she starred alongside Michael Keaton in Ron Howard's comedy, Gung Ho. In 1986 Rogers auditioned for the female lead in Fatal Attraction that went to Glenn Close. However, Rogers got her breakthrough role when she was cast opposite Tom Berenger in Ridley Scott's Someone to Watch Over Me (1987). Rogers played Claire Gregory, a socialite that is protected after she witnesses a murder. In 1989 Rogers starred alongside Denzel Washington in the critically acclaimed mystery film The Mighty Quinn. A year later she appeared alongside Mickey Rourke and Anthony Hopkins in the remake, Desperate Hours. In 1991 Rogers starred as the protagonist in The Rapture about a woman who converts from a swinger to a born-again Christian after learning that a true Rapture is upon the world. Rogers received an Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead nomination for her role in the film. Slant Magazine praised her "spectacular performance, which seems in part inspired by the physical splendors and feral glances of Bette Davis or Barbara Stanwyck." In 1993 Rogers posed nude for the March 1993 edition of Playboy magazine, and also appeared on that issue's cover. Rogers later explained "Playboy had been after me for years, and finally I agreed to pose when they gave me complete approval over the shoot. It was done in a tasteful way, and since I knew that I wanted to have children soon, I thought it might be nice to have a permanent record of my body in its prime." Personal life She has been married three times. She married Jim Rogers in 1977, adopting his surname. They divorced in 1980. In the early to mid-1980s, Rogers dated Tom Selleck, Christopher Reeve and Bobby Shriver. On May 9, 1987, Rogers married actor Tom Cruise. They separated in 1989; their divorce was finalized in February 1990. In an interview with Playboy in 1993, Rogers discussed her split from Cruise and likened her ex-husband to a "monk" when discussing intimacy issues. Rogers later retracted the comments and claimed she was misinterpreted. In 1990, Rogers began living with Chris Ciaffa. They have a daughter, Lucy Julia Ciaffa (born 1995), and a son, Charles Ciaffa (born 2001). The couple married in 2003.
