Every few years he attracts some attention through some ''unusual'' antics that puts him into the tabloids, such as his outspoken adherence to the Church of Scientology and high profile marriages (To Creator/NicoleKidman and Creator/KatieHolmes) that slowly fall apart. He is generally very friendly, but his intensity leads to some MemeticMutation moments in interviews that takes time to dissipate. Including jumping on Oprah's couch telling her how much he loves Katie Holmes.

[[BunnyEarsLawyer Despite all the crazy]], Cruise is [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct a genuinely good - sometimes even great - actor]] with some great films under his belt. He has remained an A-list actor since the 80's, starting around the time of ''Film/TopGun''. He opened the 2002 Oscars -- just months after 9/11 -- and gave a memorably appropriate and heartwarming opening speech as well, called "A Little Bit of Magic".

'''Thomas Cruise Mapother IV''' (pronounced /ˈtɒməs ˈkruːz ˈmeɪpɒθər/; born July 3, 1962), better known by his screen name of Tom Cruise, is an American actor and film producer. Forbes magazine ranked him as the world's most powerful celebrity in 2006. During his career he has been nominated for three Academy Awards and won three Golden Globe Awards. His first leading role was in ''Film/RiskyBusiness'', and since then he has become well known for playing heroic characters, although several of his most memorable turns have been [[PlayingAgainstType villainous roles]], such as the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt in ''Film/InterviewWithTheVampire'', Vincent in ''Film/{{Collateral}}'', and recently [[ClusterFBomb foul-mouthed]] [[CorruptCorporateExecutive studio boss]] [[Film/TropicThunder Les Grossman]], which provides the page caption.

More recently he has been known for his... ''unusual'' antics, such as [[NeverLiveItDown jumping on the couch on Oprah]]. Cruise is also known for his controversial support of and adherence to the [[ChurchOfHappyology Church of Scientology]], both of which have contributed to his status as a ButtMonkey of modern Pop Culture (...at least until Creator/CharlieSheen went bananas), and which cause many people to forget his very real and quite considerable acting talents.

Also, he's a RealLife physical ''{{Badass}}'', and a lot of his more memorable scenes have been [[TheCastShowoff him showing off]] his [[NoStuntDouble lack of a stunt double]] - [[BadassDriver driving]], [[BadassBiker motorcycling]], [[ClimbingTheCliffsOfInsanity climbing]], [[AirAidedAcrobatics acrobatics]] and [[LeParkour running]]. ''[[http://tomcruiserunning.tumblr.com/ Especially]]'' running.

[[BunnyEarsLawyer Despite all the crazy]], Cruise is [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct a genuinely good - sometimes even great - actor]] with some great films under his belt. He was pretty much the top movie star in the world for a good fifteen to twenty years, starting around the time of ''Film/TopGun''. He opened the 2002 Oscars -- just months after 9/11 -- and gave a memorably appropriate and heartwarming opening speech as well, called "A Little Bit of Magic".

There are some indications that he may be in the process of a CareerResurrection, thanks to the very positive reception to his performances in ''Film/TropicThunder'', ''Film/MissionImpossibleGhostProtocol'', ''Film/{{Oblivion 2013}}'', and ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow''.

Finally, [[OlderThanTheyLook even at age 52]], he remains Hollywood's preeminent {{Bishonen}}.
