A look at the cast of the classic film Top Gun then and now reveals just how little some of the stars have changed since their 1986 heyday.

Some being the operative word here. A quarter century can take a toll.

Tom Cruise looks barely older than when Maverick uttered the classic Top Gun quotes we know and love. His rival the Iceman? Well ...

Maybe Scientology is onto something. That's all we'll say. Scroll down:

    In the spring of 2005, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes met.

    They hit it off immediately and began a whirlwind romance, which many people felt was a publicity stunt. Many people are eating serious helpings of crow now.

    Their first date was said to be a sushi dinner aboard Tom's private plane and later that month, they were exclusive. By April of 2006, they had a daughter, Suri.

    Then in November 18 of that year, TomKat became lovingly joined in matrimony. Yep, today's there five-year anniversary. That's like 25 in Hollywood years!

    Tom Cruise takes a lot of flack for being kind of out there in his own world, but let's face it, he and Katie are not only harmless, but a model relationship in many ways.

    We don't know them personally, but neither goes out of their way to seek attention and both seem like attentive parents and spouses. Quirky, maybe, but who's not?

    With so much coverage devoted to Kim Kardashian and Ashton Kutcher, it's nice to see a marriage working out, isn't it? Granted, it's his third. But they try! Hard!

    It seems like forever ago that Cruise, who's now filming Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, was jumping on couches and warring with Matt Lauer like a loon.

    We kinda miss those days, but we're glad he's happier and mellower with Katie these days. Happy anniversary, TomKat, and happy weekend, THG readers ...

    Who knew Katie Holmes had such a horrifying streak?

    After screening her latest flick, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, for her husband Tom Cruise recently, Katie said it left the actor sufficiently spooked.

    Holmes said Cruise had to watch another film before retiring for the evening. “I’m not sure what he watched ... Maybe The Sound of Music?”

    Our partner site, Movie Fanatic, just saw Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (follow the above link for more on the film) and can confirm that yes, it is scary.

    Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro tells the story of a modern family living in an old Rhode Island mansion that has secrets buried deep below the ground.

    Holmes, a fan of the classics from the horror genre, admits that she appreciated del Toro’s take on the steadfast haunted-house movie storyline.

    She also liked that the film allowed her to be a mother figure to a young daughter, just like she is in real life to Suri Cruise. She's five now. Five!

    Tom Cruise starred in Born on the Fourth of July.

    In real life, he was born on the third, and yesterday, wife Katie Holmes surprised him with a surprise 49th birthday bash at Miami Beach's SoHo Beach House.

    Cruise's three kids – Suri, with Katie, and Connor and Isabella, from his marriage to Nicole Kidman – were all there to celebrate, along with 40 close friends.

    Tom, Kat

    The bash took place on the roof and inside the private venue, where guests enjoyed pasta, shrimp and other Italian dishes, in addition to chocolate cake.

    Tom Cruise is in Florida now filming Rock of Ages. He's been a Hollywood rock star himself for almost three decades, with no signs of slowing down.

    Here are some of THG's favorite shots of this acting legend and lovable nut:

    Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are being torn apart, according to a new tabloid report. But it's not a third party or an emotional rift wreaking havoc ... it's the FBI!

    Presumably, Star magazine is referring to Tom's slave labor Scientology bus or what have you. It's impossible to guess how the feds would actually be involved.

    Katie Holmes Looking Good?

    All we can tell you is that it must be a slow week in celebrity gossip, because even if nonsense like this were true, is TomKat even on people's radar at this point?

    SHOCKING! Look at that photo of federal agents compiling evidence. Eerie! Likely from an unrelated crime scene 700 miles away, but still ... such powerful imagery.

    It's been awhile since we've read an old-fashioned Tom Cruise / Scientology expose full of outrageous allegations, but this certainly makes up for lost time.

    According to Radar Online, the actor demanded his custom-built bus be the base for Katie Holmes' "Purification Rundown Program" prior to marrying her.

    The trailer-style bus was allegedly built by the church's underpaid staffers, who put nearly 9,000 hours of "slave labor into its production for the star.

    TomKat on the Red Carpet

    The FBI is reportedly investigating the Church of Scientology for human trafficking and using free labor, in part to meet the demands of its celebrity icon, Cruise.

    Tom insisted on a custom drawer for his slippers because the neat-freak didn't want anyone walking on the carpet, a former high-ranking church staffer claims.

    In an internal email, Cruise's requests for upgrades were outlined, according to the church's former Inspector General Mark Rathbun. So what does it matter?

    Come on Star.

    At least the recent cover story about how Jason Trawick abused Britney Spears had shock value, even if it was lacking in some areas (namely facts).

    Same with the new story about someone getting Amber Portwood pregnant. Unconfirmed, but certainly eye-opening ... and more or less believable.

    But Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise on the rocks for the 47th time? Yawn. 

    Katie Leaves Tom!

    The worst part? Star can't even get its verb tenses straight.

    First of all, you know it's not true. Second, TomKat is sooo 2008.

    Also, hack tabloid editors, they can't be SEPARATED if she hasn't even left him yet, which the sub-heading implies by saying she's "leaving" Tom. Weak.

    If you've got the goods on a Teen Mom pregnancy scandal AND the Miley Cyrus bong video (and the latter actually exists!), why not lead with those instead?

    Pick it up, guys. You're capable of so much better.

    Stop the presses.

    We hope you're sitting down, because In Touch is about to drop a BOMB on you. Katie Holmes is not only sleeping in the guest room, she's on birth control!

    That's Bad Hair, Holmes

    After four years of marriage and only one child, one would kind of assume that, but hey. As for moving into the guest room, how would they possibly ... you know what, forget it. Just prepared to be shocked and awed by nothing:

    For a supposed bombshell, this looks like a non-story.

    Come on, ITW. With all the real (Teen Mom) and surreal (Brangelina) news potential out there, we'd think you could do better than this snoozefest.

    We expect much better next week. At least give us some alleged sexual Tomfoolery on the Mission: Impossible 4 set if you're going the Katie route.
