Tom Cruise arranged stage party for Katie Holmes 30th birthdayDecember 20th, 2008 - 4:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 20 (ANI): American actor Tom Cruise made sure that his actress wife Katie Holmes had a memorable 30th birthday, even though he was not there, by arranging a stage party for her.
Cruise, who had to be in California for the premiere of his new film Valkyrie, arranged for a five-tiered cake to be presented to Holmes on stage after a performance of Arthur Miller’’s All My Sons.
John Lithgow, who is Holmes co-star, made the announcement to the audience.
Tom Cruise, our good friend, devoted fan to the show, doting husband of Katie, could not be here tonight, the Sun quoted him as saying.
He’’s heartsick that he couldn”t be here … but he wanted to make his presence felt. So, he’’s joining us, inviting all of you, to celebrate Katie’’s birthday, he stated.
After the announcement, crewmembers wheeled out a five-tiered, white-frosted circular birthday cake as the crowd cheered and applauded, and as the audience sang Happy Birthday, Holmes and her daughter Suri blew out the candles.
Afterwards, the cast and crew enjoyed dessert and champagne, also provided by Cruise.
I planned it so that when she comes out for the standing ovation, John would get the whole audience to wish her a happy birthday, Cruise told People magazine, just as the surprise was sprung. (ANI)
