Tom Cruise has had a special day named in his honor in Japan.
Tom Cruise can never have too many. The actor of many accomplishments adds more to his resume as the Japan Memorial Day Association has declared that he will be given his own day of celebration because of his love of the country and the amount of time he spends with fans there.
Cruise has reportedly made more visits to the country than any other major Hollywood stars and spent hours on end with fans in the country. He recently spent time there to promote his film "Mission: Impossible 3", having his picture taken with over 100 fans. What's more, the actor also worked in Japan for his 2003 drama, "The Last Samurai" which grossed $117m (€93.6m) more in Japan than it did in the US.
And now with such declaration, The Association noted Cruise as the first Hollywood star ever to receive the honor.
