Thomas Cruise or Tom Cruise as we know has many feathers in his cap with some of the greatest movies of all times. Making his mark from Top Gun to Jack Reacher, Tom has come a long way. But very few people know Tom as he is in true life. We have collected a few facts to show what Tom really is like in his real life, read on:
