Tom Cruise celebrates 60th birthday watching F1 driver Lewis Hamilton

Tom Cruise is on top of the world after leading Top Gun: Maverick’s billion-dollar campaign at the box office — a first for the veteran lead among his filmography.

Aside from celebrating Maverick’s success, the Days of Thunder star spent his 60th birthday at a Formula One race on Sunday, taking in the event while being in the UK to finish filming his next theatrical release, which is the seventh installation in the Mission: Impossible series. Cruise cheered on friend and Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton.

With the success of Maverick, a near 26-year return to the 80s hit Top Gun, perhaps Cruise can start venturing into prequel projects to keep the box office cash flowing, starting with Born on the Third of July.
