Celebrities Who Went From Rags to Riches

Tom Cruise

Before Scientology, before Top Gun, and before Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise was a young lad growing up in Syracuse, New York, with an abusive father and living in poverty. He first got involved with drama in the fourth grade, and after a few different stints in film in the early 1980s, he hit it big with 1986's Top Gun. He is now believed to have a net worth of $270 million.
