So, Tom Cruise… I’ve been crushing on the guy ever since high school, I’m in my 40s now and he’s still Tom Cruise. Since we talked about Interview with the Vampire recently, I thought we should dedicate an entire post to Tom Cruise as well.
Anyway, the guy is not just an actor; he’s one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars who have won numerous acting awards, foremost his two Golden Globe awards for Best Actor (Born on the Fourth of July, 1989 and Jerry Maguire, 1996.) He also won, among many others, the Best Supporting Actor award for his performance as Frank T.J. Mackey in Magnolia (1999)
The man has many talents: he can sing, he can dance, he can play the guitar, and he is a licensed pilot! But most of all, what I truly like about him is his beautiful smile and his giving heart.
Tom Cruise supports many charities, among them are: Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes, Children’s Hospice & Palliative Care Coalition, Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Hollywood Education and Literacy Project (H.E.L.P), and Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation to name a few.
My favorite Tom Cruise movies include the Mission Impossible franchise, Top Gun 1&2, Interview with the Vampire (1996), The Last Samurai (2003), War of the Worlds (2005), Edge of Tomorrow (2014), and Jack Reacher 1&2 among many others. Unfortunately, I have yet to watch the movies where he won the awards mentioned above.
Having said all that, Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick, will be back in theaters this weekend starting this Friday, August 12, 2022. If you haven’t gone to see the film yet and you don’t have plans this weekend, now is the best time to do so as according to reports, fans will get a glimpse at behind-the-scenes clips plus viewers will receive some freebies. Top Gun: Maverick, has reportedly already eclipsed Titanic at the box office and is now the seventh highest-grossing movie of all time in the US. Watch its trailer below.
