Rosamund Pike is more than just a pretty face, though she certainly has that going for her, too. The British beauty has cooked up an impressive resume peppered with everything from action adventures like "Die Another Day" to period dramas like "Pride and Prejudice."
"Jack Reacher," however, launches Pike into new places — like Tom Cruise's bedroom. Well, sorta. In this action thriller, Pike plays Helen, a well-heeled attorney who likes to cross her "T"s and dot her "I"s, while Mr. Cruise takes on the titular role as an ex-military vigilante who takes the law into his own hands … and only owns one shirt, which seems to get wet a lot.

In other words, size doesn't matter. Get More »
Despite rumors to the contrary, Tom Cruise may not have lost that lovin' feeling for a sequel to "Top Gun."
When it was recently announced that explosion-prone producer Jerry Bruckheimer was in development on the long awaited "Top Gun 2," many people assumed Cruise's goose was cooked as he had a long-standing lack of interest, and if he did appear it would merely be a flyby cameo or supporting role as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell.
