Tom Cruise: The Mad Matinee Idol
Tom Cruise electrified the '90s with dumb blockbusters ("Days of Thunder," anyone? "Interview with the Vampire"?) and serious critical triumphs ("Jerry Maguire"! "The Firm"!) He was believable as just about anything, and his self-conscious seriousness felt reliable in leading man roles. His blend of facial symmetry and unwarranted intensity is the perfect movie star combo.
