Washington (ANI): American actor Tom Cruise"s life before he became Hollywood's top-earning actor, involved him trying for fame in the field of wrestling. Cruise, who was just a teenager then, would take part in violent wrestling matches. A photo, obtained by U.S. magazine People, showed the young Cruise posing after a match.
From the looks of the picture, the Top Gun star had just been through a very intense match at a freestyle-wrestling tournament at New Jersey's Glen Ridge High School, where he graduated in 1980. "I was 16 years old. The guy in the first round chipped my tooth. My lip was bleeding. But I was like, 'I'm going to win'," Contactmusic quoted him as saying about the event.
