He’s been on screens around the world for over four decades and has starred in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time.

In the latest installment of our Celeb Riches series, we delve into his massive net worth.

How rich is Tom Cruise?

Tom Cruise has starred in and produced some of the biggest box-office films for 41 years.

He has been part of record-breaking franchises that have made hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office.

acting

Tom made his film debut in 1981 with a small role in Endless Love.

Just two years later, his performance in Risky Business made him famous.

The film made $64 million on a budget of just $6 million and secured its place as Hollywood’s new heartthrob.

From there he starred in some of the biggest films of the last three decades.

In 1986, the cult classic Top Gun grossed $360 million worldwide and was the highest-grossing film of the year.

Just two years later, his films “Cocktail” and “Rainman” were both released in 1988 and were huge hits.

In 1989, Tom received his first Oscar nomination for the film Born on the Fourth of July.

The hits kept coming as the 90’s were very good to him.

In 1992 Days of Thunder, Far and Away and A Few Good Men were released.

Over the next few years, while his films The Firm and Interview with the Vampire were being released, Tom received a Golden Globe nomination for his performance in A Few Good Men.

He then starred in and produced the 1996 blockbuster Mission: Impossible, which grossed $457 million worldwide.

That same year, Tom also starred in the highly successful film Jerry Maguire, which grossed $275 million and led to an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

CNW reported that his five highest-grossing films are:

  • Top Gun 2022: Maverick – over $1 billion
  • 2018: Mission: Impossible – Fallout – $800 million
  • 2011: Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol – $700 million
  • 2015: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation – $690 million
  • War of the Worlds 2005 – $606 million

Between 1983 and 2011, Tom earned an impressive $445 million in film salaries.

Then, between 2011 and 2019, he likely raised another $300 million.

That means he was able to earn around $745 million between 1983 and 2019.

To produce

Much of his wealth now comes from producing alongside acting.

Tom and his then-agent Paula Wagner formed Cruise/Wagner Productions in 1993.

Paula is credited with signing Tom to giant talent agency CAA.

The two first produced Mission: Impossible together in 1996.

The 60-year-old earned a whopping $70 million for his credits on the first Mission Impossible.

He then received $75 million for Mission Impossible 3.

CNW reported that the company has produced $3 billion worldwide to date.

What about his real estate?

The action star is no stranger to luxury.

He has had homes all over the world and has sold many of his pads over the past decade.

In 2017, the actor dropped nearly $9.6 million for a 20,826-square-foot mansion in Clearwater, FL.

According to realtor.com, the two-storey penthouse has four bedrooms, a gym, games room, home cinema, rooftop infinity pool, jacuzzi, gardens and bar.

He also sold his spacious ranch in Telluride, CO for a whopping $39.5 million.

The 320-acre mountain was his retreat for decades before listing it for $59 million in 2014.

After sitting on the market, it was relisted and sold for $39.5 million in March 2021.

In 2007, Tom and then-wife Katie Holmes bought a three-acre mansion for $30.5 million.

He sold the Beverly Hills home in 2016 for a cool $38 million.

The 10,000-square-foot home had seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a tennis court, a swimming pool, and two guest houses.

In 2013, Tom sold his longtime loft in the East Village for $3 million.

He bought the Pied-à-Terre in 1984 after starring in Risky Business.

The 2,200-square-foot, two-bedroom unit was on the tenth floor and featured a state-of-the-art gym.

How does he spend his money?

For some, Tom Cruise is a real hero.

According to The Richest, in 1996 he witnessed a young woman being hit by a car.

After taking her to the hospital, he ended up paying her emergency room bill — a whopping $7,000.

After playing arguably the most famous naval pilot of all time, Tom actually dished out his own dough and became a licensed pilot in 1994.

He also paid between $35 million and $38 million for a Gulfstream G450 jet.

Apart from planes, the movie star loves an old car.

He was spotted in a nearly $1.7 million Bugatti Veyron.

He is also said to have a 1958 Chevrolet Corvette with an estimated price of $99,995.

His other toys include several motorcycles, including one he got for his 51st birthday – the Vyrus 987 C3 4V.

This bike is one of the best performing in the world and costs over $100,000.

He is also very involved with the Church of Scientology.

It’s unclear how much he gave to the church, but membership is notoriously expensive.

Actress and ex-Scientologist Leah Remini said on her show Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath that it’s quite common for members who reach the highest ranks to give about $500,000 a year.

Ex-members have said they are required to attend courses and buy books.

For beginner courses, they can cost $650 and even reach thousands – per course.

Comedian Raju Srivastava Hospitalized After Cardiac Arrest In Gymnasium

Comedian Raju Srivastava is currently under observation in hospital. (Case)

New Delhi:

Comedian Raju Srivastava suffered cardiac arrest while working out at a gym and was taken to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Delhi today. He is now out of danger, his friend and colleague Sunil Pal said.

Raju Srivastava, 58, was working out on a treadmill when he complained of chest pains and collapsed. His trainer took him to AIIMS where he underwent cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) twice and was revived.

“Srivastava had to be resuscitated twice and was rushed to the cath lab for emergency angiography,” the PTI news agency reported, citing an unnamed source.

According to the ANI news agency, Mr Srivastava underwent angioplasty and is “responding to treatment”.

The comedian is currently under observation in the hospital.

The incident highlighted a string of deaths in recent years of middle-aged celebrities from heart disease.

“Nowadays there is a culture of over-training. Coaches recommend a constant increase in training. People should not do aggressive training. Exercise can lead to death,” said Dr. Balbir Singh, president of cardiac sciences at Max Healthcare, to NDTV.

Dr Raju Vyas, Director of Cardiac Sciences at Fortis Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, said: “On average, people are having heart attacks two decades earlier. We are seeing this trend over the last 10 years. People should obtain a medical certificate before starting to train.”

Sunil Pal, also a comedian, said Mr Srivastava was now out of danger.

“He’s fine now. He’s out of danger,” Mr Pal said in an Instagram video.

Mr. Srivastava, one of the country’s most successful comedians, is a popular name on television.

He has been active in the entertainment industry since the late 1980s, although he first gained recognition after appearing on the first season of the comedy show “The Great Indian Laughter Challenge”.

He appeared in Hindi movies like “Maine Pyar Kiya”, “Baazigar”, “Bombay to Goa” and “Aamdani Atthani Kharcha Rupaiya”. He was one of the contestants in the third season of “Bigg Boss”.

Mr. Srivastava is the current Chairman of the Uttar Pradesh Film Development Board.

Heat’s Victor Oladipo discusses his Revenge Tour, workouts with Russell Westbrook

Heat’s Victor Oladipo Discusses His Revenge Tour, Workouts With Russell Westbrook

Victor Oladipo calls it his Revenge Tour, the Miami Heat guard regularly filling his social media with posts about his grueling offseason workout schedule, including recent sessions with Russell Westbrook in Los Angeles.

As he explained on Vince Carter’s VC Show podcast, it has been work with the singular goal of getting back to the All-Star level previously reached before a string of knee and quadriceps issues.

“That’s something that I came up with, just because I felt like the last couple of years have been really tough on me,” Oladipo said, “and I’ve obviously gone through a lot individually and my team, my family have gone through a lot with me collectively.”

Last year, that meant Oladipo playing on an NBA-minimum salary, spending more than half the schedule rehabbing before a late-season debut.

But, from there, there were breakout moments during the Heat’s playoff run within one victory of the NBA Finals, and then a two-year, $18 million free-agency contract to return.

Now, the focus is singular, the intent of his summer of sweat geared toward one reality.

“That I’m one of the best players in the world. Period,” the 30-year-old veteran said. “I think that my injury has kind of built a misconception of who I am as a player.”

Even with the salary upgrade, free-agency interest was tepid, leaving Oladipo with further fuel.

“Why can’t I come back from this injury and what I’ve been through and have an even greater career than I thought I could have prior to it? Why can’t I?” Oladipo said in a passionate moment during the interview with Carter. “And I don’t see no reason why I can’t.

“So I truly believe that I can, and that’s what I’m trying to prove to myself, first and foremost, is that I’m capable of great things even now, it’s never too late, no matter what anyone says or what the world may think or what people tell you.”

In many ways, Oladipo finds himself in a similar place as Westbrook, who, at 33, increasingly finds himself among those who doubt his ability to reclaim prior All-Star form.

Oladipo and Westbrook were teammates with the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2016-17.

“Me and Russ go way back,” Oladipo said. “We played together when he won MVP. So he prepared me for the following year to have the year I had after I left OKC. And I felt like I prepared himself for his MVP season before he became MVP. And right now, we’re on the same wavelength.

“We’re not going to let each other fail.”

Amid his rehab work after he was acquired by the Heat from the Houston Rockets at the 2021 NBA trading deadline for Kelly Olynyk and Avery Bradley, Oladipo insisted a better version would emerge, even while limited to four regular-season appearances with the Heat in 2020-21 and eight this past season.

Now, for the first time since 2018, there has been the ability to challenge himself during an offseason.

“I’m itching just thinking about it. It’s so crazy. It’s like a rebirth,” the No. 2 pick in the 2013 NBA draft said. “And being in my 10th year, it feels like I’m in Year One all over again. But it’s like a Year One with a little bit of experience.

“I’m going to prepare myself for any and everything this summer. So whatever happens next year, it’s no shock to me.”

All while planning to arrive at training camp the final week of September as both a new man as well as his former All-Star self.

“I make sure people know that I’m coming for everybody,” he said of his Revenge Tour. “At the end of the day, it really don’t matter who it is. I just want to prove that I’m Victor Oladipo and I stand for who I am.”

Boeing delivers first 787 Dreamliner since 2021 after manufacturing defects

Boeing Delivers First 787 Dreamliner Since 2021 After Manufacturing Defects

Boeing delivered its first 787 Dreamliner in more than a year on Wednesday, ending a pause in jetliner deliveries triggered by a series of manufacturing defects.

American Airlines has taken the first new delivery from Boeing’s 787 factory in South Carolina, carrier CEO Robert Isom said in an Instagram post.

Delivery is an important milestone for Boeing. Planes are a key source of cash for the maker, and most of a plane’s price is paid on delivery – although the company has had to compensate customers for the delays.

Deliveries have been suspended for much of the past two years. Boeing said earlier this year that production defects and a drop in production while waiting for delivery would cost it $5.5 billion.

Dreamliner customers like American and United Airlines have had to do without their new planes, which are often used for long-haul international routes, amid an upsurge in demand for such trips this year.

Among the issues discovered was tiny, incorrect spacing in some parts of the fuselage.

“Every action and every decision influences our customers’ trust in Boeing – we build trust one aircraft at a time,” Stan Deal, CEO of Boeing’s Commercial Aircraft Unit, wrote in a memo to staff on Wednesday. “We will continue to take the time necessary to ensure that each one meets our highest quality standards.”

The Federal Aviation Administration said earlier this week that it had cleared Boeing to resume deliveries, which were due to begin this week.

Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen toured the 787 plant last Thursday and met with FAA safety inspectors about steps to improve production quality, the agency said more early this week.

This would mean that air fares would once again be regulated by the market and competition would become fiercer.

The government had put fare caps in place at the start of the COVID pandemic to avoid any sudden increases or decreases in airfares.
