Where in the world is birthday boy Tom Cruise?

After boarding his private jet at 2 a.m. on July 3 — his 50th birthday — at the Reykjavik airport in Iceland, the actor is homeward bound, heading to his primary residence in Beverly Hills, California, to celebrate his milestone birthday.

The Rock of Ages star has been laying low overseas — shooting additional scenes for his upcoming sci-fi film, Oblivion — since being “blindsided” when his soon-to-be ex-wife Katie Homes filed for divorce in New York on June 28.

And the split has ruined the megastar’s romantic birthday plans.

Weeks prior to his split from Holmes, Cruise looked forward to celebrating the big 5-0 with her in the Nordic country. “Iceland is beautiful,” Cruise had said. “We like hiking, and so we’ll have some nice hikes and maybe go camping.”

But with Katie now shacking up her new $12,000-a-month NYC pad, Cruise will be blowing out the candles alone. On July 2, Holmes was spotted in the Big Apple for the first time since the split announcement, sans wedding ring.
