Jerry Maguire was the breakout role for Oscar® winner Renée Zellweger, and it's a role she thought she'd never get. "I remember driving to the audition, and I remember being very calm because I was thinking, 'This is never going to happen.'"

It did, and together Tom and Renée filmed one of the most romantic scenes in movie history. After a separation, Tom's character bursts into a room full of women, determined to get his wife back. In the scene, Tom tearfully utters the line: "You complete me." Renée says she had no trouble responding. "I don't know what he was thinking about when he came through that door, but he was a wreck," she says. "He brought something with him that day."

Renée wants to share her warm wishes for Tom on this momentous anniversary. "He was born with some magic about him, and you can't describe it, and you can't dissect what makes Tom Cruise special," she says. "He just is."
