How Rich is Tom Cruise?: Tom Cruise is an American actor and producer with a net worth of $450 million. Cruise is widely known as one of Hollywood's hottest actors, starring as the leading man in many of Hollywood's biggest blockbuster movies. Having spent more than 3 decades as an actor Tom is still at the top of his game, most famously known for his role as Ethan Hunt in the hit movie franchise, "Mission: Impossible".
Tom Cruise's Acting Career - How Has it Made Cruise Wealthy?: After playing for years in supporting and minor roles as an actor, Cruise had his big break when he received the leading role in "Risky Business" (1983), confirming him as as an up-and-coming Hollywood actor. The movie also earned him his first Golden Globe nomination.
Cruise then continued to star in hit-movie after hit-movie, from "Top Gun" (1986) to "Rain Man" (1988). Cruise received his first Oscar nomination in "Born on the Fourth of July" (1989), followed by a Golden Globe nomination for "A Few Good Men" (1992).
However, Cruise's bank balance surely rose after he starred in and produced "Mission: Impossible", making him $70 million, later doing 3 sequels, all of which went on to become box office successes, and sure enough they earned Cruise a grand total of $290 million. That's $70 million for the first, $75 million for the second, $75 million for the third and $70 million for the fourth. That is the largest amount of money that any actor has ever received from a single part.
