Gives the same gift 19 years in a row: Tom Cruise's movie partner shares a curious fact about the actor

Actress Dakota Fanning talks about Tom Cruise's tradition

The legendary Mission Impossible actor Tom Cruise has an interesting tradition: he sends the same gift to his 30-year-old co-star Dakota Fanning every year. The woman has been receiving a new pair of shoes for her birthday for 19 years in a row.

This tradition has been going on since the release of War of the Worlds in 2005 when Fanning was only 11 years old. According to the Daily Mail, their friendship began after Tom Cruise gave the then little girl her dream: a Motorola Razr phone.

However, it was during this period that Fanning began to take an interest in heels, so shoes were added to the main gift.

"He always sends me the same thing every year after the phone. I loved heels when I was little, and I could already wear little adult shoes during the War of the Worlds preview, so I was really happy to get them. And since that birthday, he's been sending me shoes all the time," the actress recalled at Kelly Clarkson's show.

She explained that her very first gift from Tom Cruise was a phone. "I turned 11 during the filming of War of the Worlds when we were working together, and he gave me my first phone for my birthday. It was a Motorola Razr," she said.

It is worth noting that annual gifts to Dakota Fanning are not the only Tom Cruise tradition. Earlier, in a conversation with Mythical Kitchen, the star of The Green Mile, Forrest Gump and many other legendary films, Tom Hanks, revealed what he receives every year for Christmas, which is a coconut cake from Tom Cruise. The actor sends it to a special group of friends.

Actress Rosie O'Donnell also receives the same gift, which she boasted about on Instagram. "My Tommy sent me a coconut cake! I love this guy," she captioned a photo with a delicious coconut dessert.
