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.


Well it seems Dakota Fanning has kept her break-up news under wraps!

According to the October issue of Town & Country, the actress broke up with he boyfriend of three years "recently."

The 22-year-old told the mag that she doesn't like talking about it in public.

"You don't air your dirty laundry to people that aren't your family or your friends. Why would I ever want to portray myself as anything other than together?"

After she spilled the news of the split, she later went on to talk about her experiences with dating.

"The way I prefer to meet someone is through a friend. They're most likely not a freak.

"I find dates, in general, horrific. We have to sit there and ask these questions and pretend to eat a meal, and it just feels so stiff."

We know how it feels, Dakota!


Fifty Shades of Grey is coming back. Hurrah for all of the fans who just cannot get enough of the series.

However, this time around, the filmmakers are doing something new when it comes to the production of the film. Variety reports Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed will be filmed back-to-back, starting in 2016. 

This essentially means that fans have a definite release date and won't be left in the dark for much longer. 

The film also has a brand new director, James Foley, taking over from Sam Taylor-Johnson who departed the franchise in March. So that really put an end to any hopes that her husband Aaron would be making an appearance. 

Truly, a heart-breaking thought.

Despite any rumours to the contrary, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are back. Oh yes, the two actors will return and pick up where they left off. In case you forgot that involves a lot of shirtless toast eating and lots of questionable flirting while travelling in expensive aircrafts. 

A very short teaser for Fifty Shades Darker has been released. However,  it's really not much more than Jamie putting on a masquerade mask, because why not?

Both of the films have been given release dates too. So you can start planning your entire world around the days they movies come out. Fifty Shades Darker is said to arrive in cinemas 10 February, 2017, followed by Fifty Shades Freed one year later. 

But what about the newest book in the series you cry?

It would seem filmmakers have not yet deemed the world ready for a cinematic insight into Christian Grey’s mind. How unfortunate for everyone.

Oh come on, everyone wanted to see an attempt at this on the big screen, didn’t they? 



It's official – Eddie Redmayne has been cast to play Newt Scamander in JK Rowling’s new Harry Potter prequel, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

The 33 year-old Londoner won this year’s Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything.

He will now turn his attentions to playing the ‘magizoologist’ who writes a textbook that will be studied by Harry and his friends in Hogwarts, years later.

Warner Brothers made the announcement saying that Redmayne has “emerged as one of today’s most extraordinarily talented and acclaimed actors”.

The studio said they are “thrilled to welcome him into JK Rowling’s Wizarding World, where we know he will deliver a remarkable performance”.

With Redmayne secured in the role, now we wonder who will play his love interest.

Last year, The Guardian reported that Harry Styles was possibly being considered to star in the film. These reports haven't been confirmed as of yet so we will just have to wait and see. 

According to The Wrap, there are two leading ladies in the Harry Potter spin-off. It is reported that director, David Yates, has been eyeing up Kate Upton, Saoirse Ronan, Dakota Fanning, and a few others for the two roles.

We’re sure Eddie will deliver in this role and, starring alongside any of these women in a J.K. Rowling script sounds like a recipe for success to us.

Designer, Karl Largerfeld revealed his latest designs for the Chanel Cruise 14/15 collection in Dubai.

Karl said he was convinced that Coco Chanel would have loved Dubai and believed it was the perfect place to launch his new collection.

“She would have been fascinated by the Middle East, just as she was fascinated by China and England. Dubai’s a city that rose out of the sea and desert in less than 30 years.”

Karl’s new collection varied in designs from dark colours to bold prints. Largerfeld also seems to be returning to a boho chic look, as some of the models displayed his latest designs of flowing dresses and blouses on the catwalk.

Famous faces were also spotted at the catwalk event with the likes of Dakota Fanning, Tilda Swinton, Vanessa Paradis and Freido Pinto all seen sitting in the front row.
