In 1983, Tom Cruise slid his way into our hearts with his risqué role in 'Risky Business.' His magnetic charm, boyish good looks and devilish smile made him an instant favorite with female movie-goers around the world. His high-octane films, from 'Top Gun' and 'Days of Thunder' to 'Minority Report' and 'War of the Worlds,' cemented his hold on male film fans. With starring roles in box-office giants 'Interview with a Vampire,' 'Jerry Maguire' and the 'Mission: Impossible' franchise, Cruise has emerged as one of Hollywood's biggest superstars. Cruise's love life also helped fuel the fires of fandom, and the actor's high-profile marriages to Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes only added to the world's fascination with the star. Take a look through over 18 years of sizzlin' photos of a man who has dazzled Hollywood for almost 30 years.
Fans can catch Cruise in his upcoming action/comedy 'Knight and Day,' kicking into theaters Friday, June 25.
