Nearly one year after finalizing his divorce from Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise is "in a really good place" as he celebrates another birthday away from the public eye.

The actor, who turns 51 today, has thus far not made any public comments about his birthday plans or whether he will be celebrating with his friends and family members.

One day before her dad's birthday, Suri Cruise was spotted arriving at JFK airport in New York City with her mom. As usual, the seven-year-old looked adorable in her pink fashionable outfit. She also was spotted wheeling around a piece of luggage.

If not celebrating with Suri, there's also a chance that the actor is enjoying the day with his other children, Isabella and Connor Cruise. Both children come from Tom's previous marriage to Nicole Kidman.

However Cruise decides to celebrate his special day, we're confident he is enjoying life to the fullest.

"He's doing really well. He's really happy," a source recently told E! News. After dealing with a difficult split from Holmes days before his 50th birthday, Cruise has had "an incredible amount of time to reflect" and determine what he wants for his future.

One thing Cruise wouldn't mind doing sooner rather than later is heading back into the dating pool.

"He's ready to date," the source added. ""He wants to find love again. He's a really great guy and it's difficult for him to play the dating game, because even if he likes someone who isn't famous it's hard for them to understand his world."

If ladies needed another reason to be interested in the handsome star, Cher recently told Bravo's Andy Cohen that Cruise was in "the top five" for best lovers. What a compliment!

In the meantime, Cruise and his fans can look forward to more action-packed flicks. In addition to starring and producing in Mission: Impossible 5, Cruise will appear in next summer's blockbuster, All You Need is Kill, starring Emily Blunt.

In honor of Cruise's special day, we're looking back at some of the actor's biggest movie rolls to date. Take a look back at Cruise in action on the big screen!
