Jamie Foxx played an ordinary cab driver forced to take the ride of his life with a contract killer, played by Tom, in the 2004 thriller Collateral. "Mr. Cruise was so gracious it changed my life as far as my acting career goes," Jamie says.
Of all Tom's films, Jamie says Born of the Fourth of July is his favorite. "Born on the Fourth of July, to me, was where he is an actor. It was a departure from his movie star," he says. "You saw how wide his acting muscle was and he reached, in that movie, Oscar-worthy, everything-worthy."
On Tom's 25-year mark as a leading man, Jamie has a special message for his friend. "25 years? Why don't you give me some of those magic beans you taking, man, because you look like you're about 25 yourself!"
