Every year Forbes releases its list of Hollywood’s highest paid actors, and the results are often surprising. Take this year, for example, with Tom Cruise topping the list at $75 million.

There are a lot of famous actors in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical hit Rock of Ages, but the one who steals the show is Tom Cruise.

Tom Cruise has achieved extraordinary success as an actor, producer, and philanthropist in a career spanning over three decades.
Listen to Tom Cruise sing the chorus to the Def Leppard song, “Pour Some Sugar On Me” from the Rock of Ages soundtrack.
