5 Most Iconic Tom Cruise Characters

If Cruise became a household name with Risky Business, he became a bona fide movie star with the 1986 film, Top Gun. Cruise went from running around in his underpants to cruising the open skies as a Naval pilot - and in doing so, became a superstar.

Cruise's role as the reckless but passionate Maverick was a more adult role for him, and the blockbuster action film eventually became one of the highest-grossing movies of the decade. Even now - decades after the movie's release - there's still excitement about a possible sequel. But back in the mid-80s, Cruise proved that he "felt the need, the need for speed," and his budding career was speeding along leading to an even bigger decade for him in the '90s.
