Tom Cruise's 50th Birthday: 50 Of His Milestone Moments (PHOTOS)

A FEW GOOD MEN
Tom's Most Memorable Moments

Happy birthday, Tom Cruise!

The superstar actor turns 50 today, and while he's certainly had a rough few days -- it was announced on Friday that he and wife Katie Holmes are divorcing -- there are still more than a few reasons to celebrate.  For one, the actor is currently lighting up screens in the musical flick Rock of Ages, playing hair metal singer Stacee Jaxx.

And he has a whole lot more up his sleeve...

Cruise has already wrapped yet another new project, the crime saga Jack Reacher.

In it, the actor will portray an ex-military policeman who becomes a vigilante drifter -- and battles a sniper who randomly targets civilians. He's also working on the sci-fi thriller Oblivion, about a veteran soldier who's sent to a distant planet and told to destroy the remains of an alien race.

Jack Reacher is due on December 21; Oblivion will open in theaters next year.

But for those who can't wait until the films' releases, Celebuzz has a Cruise quick-fix.

To celebrate his birthday, we've collected 50 of his most memorable moments. From Risky Business to Rock of Ages, Mimi Rogers to Katie Holmes, and Oscar nominations to couch-jumping, we’ve got every last instance that made Cruise a Hollywood legend.

Flick through the gallery above and join us as we wish Mr. Cruise a very happy 5-0!

    I dont believe anything the media says about Tom. He's always been very nice in every interview i've seen him in. I dont believe he's a crazy Scientology psycho path. I believe he's a good man with a good heart. Stop bashing tom. He's never done anything to anyone. In fact, bash ppl who've done the world wrong.

    You actually make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be really one thing which I believe I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very wide for me. I'm looking forward to your subsequent post, I will try to get the dangle of it!

    What? A sequel?? Sorry, but Tom Cruise clearly doesn't look like in 1986, so...

    By then, Brooke Shields was a bigger celebrity than Tom Cruise. I can't believe this.
