Tom gets feted by his
A-list friends


Twenty-five years as a major movie star is certainly worth celebrating, and with Oprah's help, Tom Cruise marked the milestone, getting tributes from his various co-stars and friends. Close buddy Will Smith said, "There's not a single piece of press... a single image in the 25 years of his career that gets anywhere near capturing who he is." His wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, joined in: "Stuff I want people to know, I can't say! Nothing that he's done professionally holds a candle to who he is as a human being — and that's real." Meanwhile, Victoria and David Beckham revealed that they went to see Jerry Maguire for their first date. Tom's co-star on that film, Renée Zellweger, said, "I didn't need to conjure motivation to say that line [the famous "You had me at 'hello']. I walked in and there he was." Oprah's lucky audience scored a memento, too: a box set of all of Tom's films.
