Tom Cruise (you know, Katie Holmes' ex-husband) turns 51 on July 3 - congratulations, you still looks great!

The past year hasn't been the greatest for the "Mission: Impossible" star, who "celebrated" the one-year anniversary of his divorce with Holmes over the weekend; his recent movies have flopped (who has actually seen "Oblvion" and "Rock of Ages"?) and he's been hit hard by negative press for reportedly not spending much time with daughter Suri Cruise (not to mention that whole Scientology bit.)

So good riddance 50 and hello 51!

Fortunately for the "Eyes Wide Shut" star, Tom has a busy year ahead of him including shooting a fifth "Mission: Impossible" in which he reprises his role as Ethan Hunt and he may be romancing a new lady.

With the possibility of a new fling, Nicole Kidman's ex has been noticeably looking after his appearance (he really hasn't aged a day since "A Few Good Men") and is taking care of his famous brunette mane.

The awkward dancer has gone through a variety of radical haircuts from his long locks in "The Last Samurai" and "Mission: Impossible 2" to his close crop in "Minority Report" and of course those cute bangs in "Jerry Maguire."

So, in honour of one of our favourite couch-jumping action stars, we take a look back at Tom Cruise's many hairstyles.
