It's a silly title calling him a "legend" but he has more good movies & performances than bad ones.
He was even in a movie called Legend.
(It's the nickname of my dong too.)

This cover is justified and the "Legend of our Lifetime" teaser adequately describes Cruise. A 25-year career headlining films is no easy task. I'd go out and say he's quite possibly the last true blood movie star in the classic sense of the term. I mean he might not have the domestic power he once had, but internationally, he's still huge. His films rarely make under $200 million worldwide, Oblivion & Jack Reacher both cracked it, how many other actors could that be said for? His only real flops of the last ten years are Rock of Ages and Lions for Lambs, which are two ensemble pieces, where he has a limited role. Also with the right film, his domestic power is still pretty strong, I mean Ghost Protocol made almost $700 million worldwide, $200+ domestic.

We've reached a time when films no longer need movie stars to sell them, I mean look at the CBMs we love: Spider-Man, the Avengers, X-Men, dinosaurs, giant robots can sell their movies easy without big name stars attached. These kinds of films make stars now, look at what Iron Man did to Downey Jr's career. He was barely a star back when he got that film. Back in Cruise's day, he was the only draw to his films and he succeeded and still succeeds. That's why I say he's one of the few true movie stars still around today, in the John Wayne/Harrison Ford sense of the term. Who cares about his personal life, as long as he's making entertaining films, I'm satisfied. I'm looking forward to Edge of Tomorrow, I don't like the weekend it's being released, but based on Cruise's past history, if anyone can survive, it's him. I'd discuss this further, but I just don't have the time right now.

Get at me on Twitter or e-mail if anyone really wants to discuss this further.
