Remember that guitar tune from Mission Impossible? A 24-year-old tune still sounds fresh and energizing. But Mission Impossible is incomplete without its main character – Ethan Hunt, one of the early agents which literally changes the meaning of a true cop, and an undercover agent.
We cannot think of anyone else but Tom Cruise when it comes to Mission Impossible series and Ethan Hunt! Tom Cruise is an American actor and producer who has won behemoth awards and recognitions along with 3 Golden Globe Awards.
Remember the War of the Worlds? Tom Cruise didn’t take any fees for acting in the movie, rather he charged 20% of the movie’s earnings. Can you guess how many zeros were there before $1? There were big 8 zeros against $1 ($100,000,000). This was Tom’s earnings with War of the Worlds leaving behind our Iron Man!
With such huge earnings, can you guess what can be the net worth of Tom Cruise? Well, we will talk about it a bit later but let’s first know about the man himself – Tom Cruise!
Taking You to The Cruise of Tom Cruise’s Life
Born in New York City, Tom Cruise is the son of special education teacher Late Mary Lee. Tom Cruise is said to have English, German and Irish ancestry.
Starting days of Tom Cruise were not much happening as he has to live in poverty and he didn’t like his father much. Part of his childhood was spent in Canada, where he was first introduced to drama when he was in 4th grade at Robert Hopkins Public School.
Our dashing Tom Cruise attended some 145 schools in his 14 years. In his senior school, he played football for his school team, but he was cut from the team after the team caught him drinking beer before a game.
When he was 18, he moved back to New York to peruse his career in acting. He worked as a busboy during his struggling years. It was 1981 when he appeared on the Hollywood screen in the movie Endless Love and later followed by Taps.
However, All the Right Moves and Risky Business are said to be 2 movies that changed his way of life in 1983. In 1988 he was featured in the movie – Cocktail which went on for nomination for the Razzie Award for Worst Actor.
It was in 1996 when Tom Cruise was asked to play the role of Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible series and then again in 2000, Cruise returned as Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible 2. Tom Cruise earned some $12 million for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (2011).
Tom’s journey as Ethan Hunt is so mesmerizing that the Mission Impossible series seems to be incomplete without him. Mission Impossible 2 was the highest-grossing movie of that year and had a mixed critical reception. But for MI – 2, Tom Cruise earned MTV Movie Award for Best Male Performance in the movie.
So, for now, I hope you’re well aware of the fact that apart from being a true fighter on the screen, he is a warrior off the screen as well. Not everyone has the courage to dislike their father and then turn out to be a rising star. Many children have been suppressed due to parental issues! But our man Tom Cruise has turned out to be phoenix – rising from the ashes!
