Tom Cruise is to be made an honorary citizen of Busan in South Korea.
The 50-year-old Tinseltown star will be given the honour for his contribution to the movie industry when he visits the city to promote his new film Jack Reacher.
The Hollywood Reporter said that the actor, as well as his co-star Rosamund Pike and the movie's director Christopher McQuarrie, will be presented with special citizenship certificates later this week.
A city official said: "The visit of a top star and director will contribute to promoting Busan's important status in Asia for cinema.
"The city has decided to award the honorary citizenship to Mr Cruise in recognition to his contribution to the industry."
