Making his film debut in 1981 with the critically acclaimed film Taps, TOM CRUISE (John Anderton) has experienced a distinguished career in the entertainment industry, and he shows no signs of slowing down 20 years later.

Beginning his rise to stardom in 1983 with his Golden Globe-nominated performance in Risky Business, Cruise then created one of the most memorable characters of the eighties, flying-ace Maverick, in the top-grossing film of 1986, Top Gun. The role established him among the most bankable stars in Hollywood and added to his remarkable list of credits, which include the Academy Award-winning films Rain Man and The Color Of Money, as well as All The Right Moves, Legend, Cocktail, Days of Thunder, Far And Away, The Firm and Interview With The Vampire.

In 1989 Cruise received his first Oscar nomination for Best Actor and won his first Golden Globe for his starring role in Born on the Fourth of July. More accolades and a Golden Globe nomination followed in 1992 with the Rob Reiner film, A Few Good Men.

Cruise turned to producing in 1993 when he and partner Paula Wagner formed Cruise/Wagner Productions. In 1996 they created the blockbuster hit Mission: Impossible, and that same year, Cruise teamed up with writer/director Cameron Crowe on the critically-acclaimed Jerry Maguire, which garnered him a second Academy Award nomination for Best Actor and his second Golden Globe win. Both Cruise and Wagner were celebrated in 1997 by the Producer's Guild of America, when they were presented with the Nova Award for the Most Promising Producers in Theatrical Motion Pictures. The following year Cruise/Wagner released the critically acclaimed film Without Limits, written by the Oscar winning writer of Chinatown, Robert Towne.

Once again proving his dramatic acting abilities, Cruise starred in the 1999 ensemble drama Magnolia. Applauded by critics and audiences alike, his powerful performance garnered him his third Academy Award nomination and his third Golden Globe win, this time for Best Supporting Actor.

Cruise entered the new millennium serving once again as both producer and star in the sequel hit, Mission: Impossible 2, which gave Cruise/Wagner Productions one of the most successful franchises in history, grossing over one billion dollars to date. Earlier this year, the company also produced the highly-successful film The Others, which marked Cruise's first collaboration with the film's director Alejandro Amenabar, who also wrote and directed Abre Los Ojos, the romantic Spanish thriller upon which his most recent film, Vanilla Sky, was based. Vanilla Sky marked Cruise's second collaboration with respected writer/director Cameron Crowe.

A testament to his critical and popular success, Cruise has surpassed many industry standards by receiving numerous awards, tributes and nominations which include: the Blockbuster® Entertainment Awards, the British Academy Awards, the Chicago Film Critics Association, the MTV Movie Awards™, the Golden Satellite Awards, the National Board of Review, the People's Choice Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards® and the Kid's Choice Awards.

In 1987, the ShoWest Convention acknowledged Cruise as the Box Office Star of the Year, and in 1990, the American Cinema presented him with its Distinguished Achievement Award. He garnered the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year Award from Harvard University in 1994; and in 1996, he received the prestigious American Cinem
