Get in! Dakota Fanning says Tom Cruise sends her THIS every year


While we might like to assume that stars become life-long friends after starring alongside each other in Hollywood blockbusters, it's not that realistic a notion, in fairness.

However, one lad who is doing his best to perpetuate the theory is none other than Mr Tom Cruise.

After appearing together in War of the Worlds over ten years ago, Dakota Fanning revealed that her co-star still makes an effort to keep in touch by marking the actress's birthday every year.

While appearing on Watch What Happens Live, Dakota, now 22, admitted she thought the A-lister would bring the tradition to an end at a certain point, but reveals that it doesn't look like he's planning to.

"He has sent me a birthday gift every year since I was 11 years old,” Dakota told the host. “Beautiful gifts."

“I always think, ‘Oh, when I’m 18, he’ll probably stop. Oh, 21, he’ll stop. But every year. It’s really kind."

And if you're wondering how good ol' Tom fares on the birthday front, it sounds like he knows exactly what he's doing as Dakota reveals: "It’s usually shoes."

A pair of shoes every year courtesy of a Hollywood A-lister? We'll take that.
