Tom Cruise turned 60, and the celebrations were spectacular.
The star of “Top Gun: Maverick” celebrated his birthday at the 2022 British Grand Prix on Sunday, and his “great buddy” Lewis Hamilton may now be riding a wave of good fortune.
Cruise, sporting his distinctive aviator sunglasses and a powder blue polo shirt, was among the first to congratulate the Formula 1 driver on his third-place performance at his home race over the weekend.
On Cruise’s 60th birthday, Hamilton, then 37 years old, was overheard wishing him a “happy birthday” as they embraced at Silverstone Circuit.
Seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher finished second place, behind Red Bull’s Sergio Pérez. Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz won for the first race in his career.
Longtime motorsport enthusiast Cruise told Sky Sports commentator Martin Brundle that he “always” cheers for Hamilton.
I consider him a dear friend. On the starting line, Cruise stated, “I hope he has a fantastic day.”

Reports indicate that the “Mission: Impossible” star chatted with Gordon Ramsay for a while before watching the race in the Mercedes garage with team principal Toto Wolff.
Amybeth McNulty, star of “Stranger Things,” spent the day with Williams Racing, and according to an eyewitness quoted on Page Six, Cruise was “very kind” to her.
McNulty was also spotted conversing with William Moseley, an actor from “The Chronicles of Narnia,” and James Matthews, a star of “Made in Chelsea,” who was there with his wife, Vogue Williams.
Cruise had plenty of reasons to party away from the track on his special day. His most recent feature, widely hailed as the “movie of the summer,” has raked in over $1 billion at the box office.
This Fourth of July weekend, “Top Gun: Maverick” added another $25.545 million in the United States and $37 million worldwide, making it one of the highest-grossing pictures of all time (per Forbes).
Cruise tweeted on June 27: “To all the films in release, to all the studios, and all the exhibitors: congrats.”
To the people in the crowd, I say, “Thank you for coming out tonight and allowing us to entertain you. Hope to see you at the movies!
Before the rest of his birthday festivities began this week, Cruise went to see Adele in concert with actor Luke Evans.
Before the event in Hyde Park, London, on Friday, Cruise took a photo with the “Beauty and the Beast” actor.
