Date of Birth: July 3rd 1962
Tom Cruise's boyish good-looks and contagious grin have yet to let audiences, or the box-office, down. A small part in "Endless Love" (1981) is the film debut that launched a career spanning two decades and is still going strong.
Told by some that he was too short, Tom didn't let skepticism sway him and went on to star in some of the top grossing films of the 80s. Classics of die-hard Cruise fans from that decade include "Risky Business" (1983), "Top Gun" (1986) and "The Color of Money" (1986).
The 90s didn't let Tom miss a beat and his charismatic charm graced feature films such as "Far and Away" (1992), "The Firm" (1993) and "Magnolia" (1999). His versatility and variety of roles continue to delight audiences into the 21st century.
Separation from long-term love, Nicole Kidman, shocked the world as Tom Cruise filed for divorce in February, 2001.
