Tom Cruise’s life in pictures as he turns 60 – from teen actor to one of Hollywood’s biggest heavyweights

He has a lot to celebrate at the moment, as Top Gun sequel Maverick is currently flying

high at the box office, easily smashing through the $1billion mark worldwide.

That’s definitely a huge gift within itself.

There is no denying that he’s still at the top of his game, but how does he do it?

In honor of Tom’s milestone big day, we’ve taken a stroll down memory lane to relieve some of his best

moments and see what makes the Cruiser the last of the Hollywood icons.

1962: Cruise was born in Syracuse, New York. His full name was Thomas Cruise Mapother IV, but he was shrewd enough to shorten it.

Suddenly, he stopped sounding like an absent-minded uncle in

a Dickens novel and started sounding like a super-cool movie star.
