He jumps on couches, gets married a lot, loves Scientology and shares opinions on certain issues that many consider out of the mainstream.
We know this. But what's really wrong with the guy? He's been one of Hollywood's biggest stars for three decades now and is basically harmless.
So let's all take a moment and wish him a happy birthday, shall we? The ageless wonder, who missed being Born on the Fourth of July by one day, is 51.
From Risky Business to A Few Good Men, the Mission: Impossible series, Tropic Thunder and this year's Oblivion, he's among the biggest stars ever.
He's also the father of Suri Cruise, with Katie Holmes, and adopted Isabella Cruise and Connor Cruise with Nicole Kidman, his previous ex-wife.
We look forward to seeing what his career has in store for us next. And wish him nothing but the best in movies and in life in his 52nd year on Earth.
