Let’s Get To Know Tom Cruise!
Cruise also works as a producer, but he’s better known as one of the world’s highest-paid actors for his roles in 1986’s “Top Gun” and its incredible 2022 sequel, “Top Gun: Maverick,” which just grossed one billion dollars at the box office in only 31 days and became the top-grossing film of his career.
Cruise also kicked off the “Mission Impossible” franchise in 1996 and has starred in many other films, including “Jack Reacher,” “War of the Worlds,” and “The Mummy” reboot.
The father of three (Suri, Connor, and Isabella Jane) has been married three times: to Mimi Rogers from 1987 to 1990, to Nicole Kidman from 1990 to 2001, and to Katie Holmes from 2006 to 2012. Although his personal life has made headlines, lately, all anyone can focus on is the success of “Top Gun: Maverick” and the upcoming “Mission: Impossible 8” film. “Dead Reckoning” part one is expected to hit theaters on July 14, 2023, with part 4 following in 2024.
While fans wait for that to come out, let’s take a look at his many fans who took to social media to wish him a happy birthday on Sunday!
