Daniel Day-Lewis is an Actor, you watch his movies and get lost in the role, and feel that he's the character.

Tom Cruise is a Movie Star, no matter what role he's playing, you never lose sight of the fact that it's Tom Cruise.

It's the difference between "Hey, you wanna go see Ali (which stars Will Smith)" and "Hey, you wanna go see that new Will Smith movie (where he plays Muhammad Ali)."
