He is also an international advocate, activist and philanthropist in the fields of health and education. He most recently starred in the hit suspense thriller "Collateral" and is currently shooting "War of the Worlds" under the direction of Steven Spielberg. He will soon begin filming the third installment of his internationally successful "Mission: Impossible" franchise.

This special award acknowledges his outstanding body of work, which has also included such diverse films as "Risky Business," "Top Gun," "The Color of Money," "Rain Man," "Born on the Fourth of July," "A Few Good Men," "Jerry Maguire," "Magnolia," "Eyes Wide Shut," "Far and Away," "The Firm," "Interview with the Vampire," "Vanilla Sky," "Minority Report" and "The Last Samurai."
