Leo or Tom: Who is the King of Hollywood?

Barring some dramatic turning of the tide, DiCaprio is now secure in his place as Hollywood’s unimpeachable golden boy, while Cruise, the previous incumbent, is in danger of resembling the court jester. On paper, the pair still occupy similar territory. They aren’t separated by much more than age (Cruise is 12 years older than DiCaprio) and a few million dollars. With two legitimate recent hits behind him in Shutter Island and Inception, DiCaprio can expect $28m per movie, while Cruise is still able to command $22m a throw. (Forbes magazine notes that “Cruise’s career has been rocky lately”, but attributes his ongoing fortune to revenue from “a string of older hits that constantly play on TV”.) Both men have sought out many of the same directors including Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg; DiCaprio is also close friends with Michael Mann, who cast Cruise in a rare bad-guy role in Collateral.

  1. Kind of ironic because I used to LOVE Tom Cruise. He’s still cool, but Leo’s my boy. I like his acting style a lot more. And he seems to have better control over his career and image without being overbearing – not to mention he seems to be down to earth and just a cool guy. :)

  2. That is a brilliant comment! I totally agree with you. Besides Leo’s amazing skill at picking these dynamic and powerful roles he is a good role model. For the most part he keeps his private life private and does these amazing humanitarian efforts. He uses his celebrity status in a very positive matter.

  3. I’ve always thought Tom Cruise was sexy ever since I first saw _Endless Love_ in February 1982! As for whether or not he ever gets back with Nicole, I bet he’s going to become this polygamist and he’ll be married to Katie Holmes, Nicole Kidman and me all at the same time!

  4. Tom Cruise you’re the the cutest guy ever seen. Leave that katie holmes and marry me.
