    be famous as/ be famed as

    Tom Cruise is (famous/ famed) as a great actor.

    In that sentence, which is the correct answer? Famous, or famed?
    Or both of them?

    If both of them are correct, what is the difference in meaning?

    Thank you for your help.

    Thank you for your help.

    You mean both is famous as and is famed as can be used in that sentence, don't you?
