Tom Cruise Helped Ray-Ban From Bankruptcy Boosting Its Sale From Selling Just 200,000 Pairs/Year To 4.5 Million In No Time

Tom Cruise is one of the top actors in Hollywood.

The star who began his acting career in Hollywood with Taps in 1981 (he had a cameo in Endless Love also 1981)

can still give younger actors a run for their money with action-packed films like Top Gun and Mission:

Impossible. Today, as the Golden Globes winner turns 60

(can you believe that!), we tell you of the time he helped save a brand.

Are you wondering which brand are we talking about?

help a brand that was decades older? Well, scroll down to know it all.
