Immortal Tom Cruise supposedly celebrates 51st birthday

Ageless Stars Tom Cruise

Fun fact #1: Tom Cruise was born on the third of July. Method acting!

Fun fact #2: He shares his birthday with noted Top Gun enthusiast Franz Kafka.

Fun fact #3: Cruise’s nativity supposedly took place in 1962… though you might not know it from looking at him. The photo on the left was taken circa 1988; the photo on the right was taken just a few years ago. Maybe there was something in the water on the set of Interview with the Vampire?

Clearly, there’s only one true way to celebrate the star’s 51st – with an intense, sweaty game of skins vs. skins volleyball.

Checking out 17 other age-defying stars – as seen in the gallery linked above – couldn’t hurt either.
