The lives and careers of Hollywood's stars are incredibly surreal, with adoring fans, lavish lifestyles, ravenous press, and unending pressure to remain in the public eye. It is a life of great triumph and greater tragedy, with every controversy magnified by tabloid media. Three superstars have managed to weather the storms and remain at the top - Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Johnny Depp, whose films comprise some of the biggest blockbusters in cinema history.

Tom Cruise  -  An actor of natural ability and supernatural commitment, Cruise exploded onto the scene with early successes like Top Gun. After a long string of box office hits, his incredible passion for making films led him to become not just an action film superstar but also a producer with blockbusters such as the Mission Impossible series. Cruise has also become the most visible member of the Church of Scientology, with rumors that his personal life and marriages were directed by the church. Though now settled into a less visible role with the church that he feels has done much for his career and personal life, he remains a powerfully visible presence on-screen.

John Travolta  -  A teen idol, singer, and dancer who leapt from Welcome Back Kotter's classroom to movie stardom, Travolta has remained a successful dramatic and comedy actor for over 40 years. His Oscar and Golden Globe nominations prove his incredible talent, but a rollercoaster career beset by rumors of sexual ambiguity and seeming legal coverups continues to fuel tabloid headlines. All the while, Travolta maintains the image of a devoted family man who has experienced tremendous tragedy, yet pursues the hope of a happy life.

Johnny Depp  -  From his days as the teen-dream heartthrob of TV's 21 Jump Street to the international popularity of Pirates of the Caribbean, Depp has captivated the public with an enigmatic screen persona and controversial off-screen life filled with headline-grabbing exploits of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll. His incredible personal wealth, spending, and recent tabloid-fueled divorce portray him to be an out of control artist beset by dark shadows, but Depp retains a great relationship with his forgiving public.

Bonus Features:
  • Gwyneth Paltrow - Growing up surrounded by show-business elite, a career in acting was a natural fit for Gwyneth Paltrow. For three decades she starred in, and has been a part of, multiple success stories on film. Her acting career aside, Mrs. Paltrow also created, and runs, her own branded company, Goop, that has developed into a very prosperous business.
  • Minorities Rebellion in Hollywood - Take a critical look into the lack of opportunities afforded to minorities in Hollywood since film as an art form has existed. How did minorities finally gain a foothold in the film industry? Who challenged themselves to seek to effect such change? And, overall, how has Hollywood transformed over the course of time in ways that are reflective of society in general?
