Has time stopped for Tom Cruise?
The 53-year-old actor who kicked off his career, three decades ago, doesn’t seem to have aged a day. One of his earliest movies, Top Gun came out in 1986, when Cruise was reportedly 24 years old and there’s not much that has changed since then. With his latest movie Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation, getting rave reviews, we take a look at how Cruise still manages to pull off crazy stunts and make heads turn.
We’ve all seen a number of celebrities who look younger than their age, but imagining somebody would look as they did a quarter of a century ago is mind blowing.
