What Is Tom Cruise’s Net Worth, Salary, and Career Earnings?
American actor and producer Tom Cruise Has a $600 Million Fortune. Tom Cruise has been in a number of big-budget films over the past three decades and is currently regarded as one of Hollywood’s biggest actors.
He is also among the world’s highest-paid and wealthiest celebrities. Tom Cruise films have raked in $9.5 billion at the worldwide box office as of this writing.
Interestingly, none of Tom’s movies failed to generate over $1 billion over the majority of his career.
Prior to June 2022, “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” which earned $800 million worldwide, was his highest-grossing film of all time. After the weekend of June 25–26, 2022, Tom finally reached the billion dollar milestone courtesy to “Top Gun: Maverick.”
Height of Tom Cruise
What is Tom Cruise’s height? Tom Cruise stands at 5′ 7″ tall. He is two inches shorter than his ex-wife Katie Holmes and three inches shorter than his ex-wife Nicole Kidman, who is 5 foot 10 inches tall (who is 5 foot 9).
Top Gun Salary/Earnings
Tom Cruise earned $2 million for the 1986 film “Top Gun,” as we just mentioned. That amounts to roughly $5.4 million now when inflation has been taken into account. Unbelievably, $2 million was 13% of Top Gun’s $15 million budget.
Producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson were worried when the Tom Cruise-starring film “Legend” tanked at the box office while Top Gun was in production. Fortunately, Top Gun was a huge success and ended up being the most profitable film of 1986, earning $360 million.
Three decades later, we arrive in 2018 or 2019. A Top Gun sequel was finally made after many years of fan rumors, whispers, and expectations, in large part due to producer David Ellison, son of Skydance founder Larry Ellison.
A Top Gun sequel was the first film David Ellison intended to make after launching Skydance in 2006—he was a pilot himself and a passionate Top Gun fan growing up. When everything came together, Skydance contributed 25% of the movie’s estimated $200 million budget.
The release of “Top Gun: Maverick” was initially scheduled for the middle of 2020, but COVID forced a two-year postponement. Tom serves as both the sequel’s main producer and its star.
He received a basic pay of $13 million for Top Gun: Maverick. More significantly, Tom has a right to 10–20% of the “first dollar” gross receipts of the movie as producer. No other Hollywood celebrity can negotiate a contract like that.
The first dollar gross is paid out following the exhibitors’ 40% cut of ticket sales, but before any additional studio expenses like marketing and production.
Tom will make about $60 million if Top Gun: Maverick earns $1 billion at the box office and he owns 10% of first dollar gross.
He will make about $120 million if he had 20%. It’s likely that Tom will get over $200 million if he has 20% of the market share and future streaming revenues are included in; this would be equivalent to almost 100 times his base Top Gun income.

Katie Holmes Divorce Settlement
Suri is the product of Tom and Katie’s union. Tom entered the marriage with a net worth of $250 million, while Katie’s net worth was less than $10 million, according to reports at the time of their divorce.
Tom insisted on having a strong prenuptial agreement because he had much more to safeguard. Tom was compelled by the terms of their divorce to pay Katie $400,000 in child support per year for 12 years (until the year 2024). When all is said and done, that works up to $33,000 each month and $4.8 million in total.

For $3 million, Tom sold a condo on the 10th level in New York City’s East Village in 2013.

Tom constructed a sizable estate in Telluride, Colorado, in the middle of the 1990s while he was still married to Nicole Kidman. His 320-acre Telluride property is large.
The primary residence is 10,000 square feet in size and has a private helipad, seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and stables for horses. He lobbied the regional airport for years to lengthen its runway so bigger private jets could land there.
In 2010, his ambition for a runway came true. He put this house up for sale in 2016 for $59 million, but he eventually failed to find a buyer. In 2018, he relisted the house but was unsuccessful in finding a buyer.
In March 2021, he listed the house once more for $39.5 million. In May 2021, Tom eventually sold the house for exactly $39.5 million.
