Can't let today go by without wishing one of Hollywood's most powerful actors a very happy birthday. Crazy Cruise is 44 today. Maybe he will let us see Suri as a present to us.

Who knew his brithday was part of the reason he was cast in a movie. Page Six reports:

Oliver Stone says that Tom Cruise won the lead role in "Born on the Fourth of July" by telling Stone that his birthday was July 3rd. Stone, however, was disappointed when Cruise did not tell reporters about his birthday when promoting the file. Cruise apparently was worried that it would lead to discovery of real last name, which is Mapother.
