Tom Cruise was back and better than ever this year! Fans of Tom got to see him tackle two very different roles — he was back as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol and then showed off his singing chops in the musical Rock of Ages. He also lined up two more big action parts, filming Jack Reacher, the first in a possible franchise based on the Jack Reacher novels, and Oblivion. Supporting Tom throughout it all has been his wife, Katie Holmes, and their three kids, Connor, Isabella, and Suri. Tom turned 49 and seems to be entering a new phase in life. He was selected to present the best picture Oscar at the 2012 Academy Awards, and was also honored for his work with the Friars Club's Icon Award, a distinction that's only been handed out to three other entertainers in history.
