Cruise became the 173rd celebrity to leave imprints in the theater forecourt. Wearing blue jeans and a casual shirt, Cruise posed for pictures and signed autographs for many in the crowd of hundreds outside the historic theater on Hollywood Boulevard. He kissed wife, actress Nicole Kidman, and talked about growing up on the East Coast and dreaming of visiting the theater and its memories. "To be asked here today to leave my footprints is overwhelming to me. I'm just so appreciative and excited about it," he said. The signature honor coincides with the release of Cruise's latest film, "The Firm," based on the John Grisharn novel about a law practice that is infiltrated by the Mafia. He costars with Gene Hackman, Holly Hunter and Hal Holbrook. For Cruise, who turns 31 on Saturday, it marks back-to-back legal roles behind "A Few Good Men." In "The Firm," Cruise stars as Mitch McDeere, an honors graduate from an Ivy League school who passes up big city law for a partnership in Memphis, Tenn. Cruise has also appeared in "Far and Away," "Days of Thunder," "Bom on the Fourth of July," "The Color of Money," "Top Gun," "The Outsiders," "Risky Business" and "Endless Love."
