Did You Know?
... that Tom Cruise has created a web site for his fans. It's great. You can watch the trailers for every movie he's made. We're not sure about the retrospective video- strange music choices ( Strauss- 2001 Space Odyssey?) And why are all the kissing scenes in a row? The clips go by so fast that sometimes you're watching a Japanese Samurai but you're hearing a modern day hit man talking. But we love it and Tom Cruise fans will too.
... that Tom Cruise's first major screen role was a supporting part in Taps. He starred alongside Sean Penn and Timothy Hutton.
... that Tom Cruise created a bit of controversy when he won the role of cult hero Lestat in the motion picture adaptation of Interview With The Vampire. The novel's author Anne Rice even took out a full page ad protesting the casting. But when the movie premiered, most people, including the apologetic writer found that Tom could seemingly play any part with ease.
... that taken together, Tom Cruise's movies (shown here in Mission Impossible) have made over $2 billion dollars worldwide.
... that Tom Cruise is not the only actor in the family. His cousin William Mapother is also in the business, most recently appearing as Ethan Rom in the First Season of Lost.
... that being dropped by Paramount Pictures didn't seem to faze Tom Cruise. He went out and bought his own movie studio - United Artists Entertainment.
... that no matter how many times you have seen the video of Tom Cruise on Oprah it's worth another look. Rewatching it we noticed that the jumping on the couch is not even the best part. We love the attacking Oprah in her pink dress and chasing Katie Holmes around backstage just as well. He's in the BUILDING!!! ... check it out below:
... Watch Tom Cruise boss around David Letterman while he continues his quest to try to win back our affections. What do you think? Is it working?

In the early 1960's, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce developed the idea of the "Hollywood Walk of Fame."
