Posted on June 14, 2012

Tom Cruise was honored with a Friars Club award. Cuba Gooding Jr., Alec Baldwin and Matt Lauer were among the stars in attendance at the Friars Foundation Gala.

Cuba Gooding Jr. said, "We throw that word superstar around a lot, but how many superstars do you know that go through three or four decades of being a superstar. He's about to turn 50 and he's still an A-list superstar.

Matt Lauer said he doesn't want people to think of relationship with Tom Cruise as that one particular interview. Lauer also said, "When you think of the term movie star, he's one of the guys you picture. He explodes on the screen, he commands the screen and he's got incredible range. He can be very funny and he can bring you to tears."
