What has Tom Cruise not done for his roles? He’s jumped off a cliff (and climbed one), hung on to a flying plane (and has flown one himself), apart from the countless other things he has done in the course of his acting career. No wonder he has made his name resound in the world for his resounding performances. But as it turns out, that was not enough for the Mission: Impossible star to beat the natural charm of Oprah Winfrey.
Tom Cruise has been one of the standout performers in the Industry
Tom Cruise put his foot in the industry with the 1981 romance, Endless Love. It would be two years later that he would first make a name for himself in Risky Business and another 3 years later that he would cement his spot amongst acting greats with the release of Top Gun.
Ever since there has been no looking back for him. His career has been ‘cruising’ (pun intended). The Rain Man star has over the course of his 4-decade-long career emerged as the most reliable name in his niche. It is only natural that he made a lot of big bucks because of the same.
Tom Cruise still not close to Oprah Winfrey
Tom Cruise has quite the works to his name, being the man behind the Mission: Impossible franchise and the Top Gun duology. No wonder he has made a lot of green over the course of his career. The 60-year-old has a net worth of $600 million.
600 million dollars is an awful lot of money. But it pales when compared to the real bulwarks of the industry. Cruise’s net worth falls awfully short of Oprah Winfrey, who has a stellar net worth of $2.5 billion.

A serious upgrade indeed!
A stunt Tom Cruise can’t pull off
Oprah Winfrey might not be able to pull off all the stunts the Eyes Wide Shut star could perform in his sleep. The talk show host does not have a sleuth of action movies to her name. But that doesn’t matter in the end if you’re making four times the other’s wealth, does it?
Oprah’s natural flair was enough to give her an edge over the War of the Worlds star. All that toil and hard work, and he still couldn’t beat a talk show host who owns America’s heart. Fans couldn’t help but sigh what a pity!
