Here's where it all went wrong for Tom Cruise
Tom it may be your birthday but we need to be honest.

TOM CRUISE IS 51 today.

He’s holding up well in fairness:

Despite what you may think, Tom is still a big box office draw.

He was in Dublin for the premiere of Oblivion earlier this year which  went on to be a huge hit and he still has the Mission Impossible movies, the most recent of which was the 5th highest grossing film of 2011.

However we’ve had our ups and down with Tom Cruise and while he’s busy blowing out all 51 candles on his birthday cake we’ve decided to be honest about the times when Tom kind of lost us a bit.

1. The Oprah couch moment

In case you thought it wasn’t that bad, let us relive the moment where the wheels threatened to fall off the Tom Cruise express for good:

2.  Seeing what he looked like as a child

How will we ever take Top Gun seriously again (Ahem) knowing that this is how geeky Tom Cruise was as a child?

3.  That Irish accent in Far and Away

Morto for you Tom.

4. Tom and Nicole splitting up

How could you Tom?

You were both so great together:

Mind you  that infamous shot of Nicole leaving her attorney’s office after her divorce settlement says otherwise:

5. All of the Scientology carry on

It will forever be a source of contention for us Tom, even when we’re watching Jerry Maguire for the 15th time:

6. The Katie Holmes messing

Remember when Tom and Katie got together and they’d turn up on the red carpet like this?

And doing this kind of blatant “We’re so in love” snogging all over the place:

7.  Rock of Ages

The film version of the rock musical took a nosedive at the box office so you may have missed the cringe inducing sight of Tom Cruise’s turn as a would-be rock star.

His take on Wanted Dead or Alive is enough to make us never watch a Mission Impossible movie ever again.

8. This shocking revelation

Once you see this image you may have to say goodbye to Tom Cruise forever:
