Movies are an absolute joy to watch, With the action-packed fight sequences
coupled with romantic and light-hearted moments, it is understandable to know
why watching movies is such a popular pastime. However, what keeps me glued to
the screen is the acting. Without good actors, the movie would be nothing. There
are many actors and actresses whom I love to watch. However, my favorite actor
is Tom Cruise.
Tom Cruise first shot to fame with his portrayal of Ethan Hunt
in the great hit movie Mission Impossible. The movie's success was credited
mostly to its engaging storyline, high-tech gadgetry and Tom Cruise's talented
acting. The success of Mission Impossible resulted in the release of two sequels
to the film which did equally well worldwide. All these movies presented Tom
Cruise's ability to perform gravity-defying, gun-wielding stunts himself which
almost rendered the stuntman obsolete. The only other actor who performed
dangerous stunts was Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones.
Besides acting in high-octane action movies, Tom Cruise has also acted in
heartwarming movies such as Jerry Mcguire. His role in the movie as a lawyer and
executive was executed to near perfection. I can remember nearly succumbing to
tears as I watched his role facing repeated failures before achieving victory.
The movie garnered much support from both fans and critics of the actor. Tom
Cruise then, much to my delight, went on to win an Oscar for his performance in
Tom Cruise's personal life is just as extraordinary as his acting career.
Most of his friends are celebrities who include David Beckham and Oprah Winfrey.
He had been seen going out with most of Hollywood's A-list actresses before
finally tying the knot with Nicole Kidman. The couple adopted two children
before going their separate ways. Tom Cruise then married Katie Holmes, another
He has been in the movie scene for almost two decades but shows no sign of
retiring. He has never ceased to enthrall
audiences with his acting prowess and I, as
well as millions of fans round the world, hope to see more of his movies in
