Tom Cruise and Olga Kurylenko shoot scenes for the film, Oblivion, near the Empire State Building in New York City on June 12th. Cruise was recently given an amazing honor by the Friars Club in New York. From SFGate.com:
"The Friars Club, best known for searing celebrity roasts, held the insults when it toasted Tom Cruise.
The actor received the fourth ever Friars Club Entertainment Icon Award on Tuesday night, placing him in the same company as Douglas Fairbanks, Cary Grant and Frank Sinatra.
"After my first film I remember thinking I just wanted the opportunity to do it again. And I didn't know whether I was going to have it again and so to be doing this now; it's kind of amazing to me," he said on the red carpet."
That is an incredible award to receive. The fact that only three people before you have ever been honored in the same way makes it incredible by itself, but then after you take a look at who the three were and it's even more amazing. Fairbanks, Grant and Sinatra are all truly "Icons" of the entertainment industry. Congratulations to you Tom Cruise, you are in amazing company!
