Tom Cruise has been in more blockbuster movies than any other actor but for the past 15 years, his career has been overshadowed by one thing: Scientology.
The bizarre religion has killed his love life and earned him endless bad publicity but it has also masked another thing – his remarkable physical transformation.
In his 30 years in the spotlight Tom has experimented with just about every look there is, wearing everything from short shorts and a ponytail to aviator sunglasses and a crew cut.
Take a look at Tom's changing appearance in this collection of photos.
