When "Risky Business" opened on August 5, 1983, it catapulted Tom Cruise to stardom and made his Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses an '80s staple.

The film, about a clean-cut high school student whose dalliance with a prostitute leads to a surprisingly profitable career, returned more than 10 times its budget of $6.2 million. Roger Ebert called the movie "one of the smartest, funniest, most perceptive satires in a long time" that "not only invites comparison with 'The Graduate,' it earns it." The film's most famous scene, where Cruise is in his underwear, dancing to Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock and Roll" has become a classic, one fans have reenacted more times than they'd care to admit.

Thirty years later, Cruise has never left the public eye, but what are the other stars of "Risky Business" up to now? Let's take a look.
