Despite his divorce drama, you can bet Cruise still had lots to celebrate when he turned 50 on July 3. "Here's how I've lived my life: I've never been late to a set. I make films I believe in. I feel privileged to do what I love," he told Playboy's June issue. The actor, who added that, "I haven't, and I never would" have cosmetic surgery, credits his boyish looks to spending time with family and living his life to the fullest. "I train, go without sleep," he said. "I just go hard."
