Cruise Sends Congrats to Buddy Pitt

by at . Comments

Several sites including Hello! Magazine are reporting that Tom Cruise congratulated Brad Pitt on the birth of daughter Shiloh Nouvel with a card proclaiming, "Congratulations! You're following in my footsteps!"

So original and clever.


Tom also sent little Shiloh a teddy bear (pictured).

According to the Daily Mirror, "Tom and Brad have had a friendly rivalry since acting together in Interview With A Vampire. The card was taken in good spirits."

No word on whether or not Brad returned the favor and sent Suri, Cruise's infant daughter with Katie Holmes, a gift.

Tom reportedly sent Horace, the Longfellow Bear, manufactured by Steiff, the world's self-proclaimed best-known manufacturer of high-quality Teddy bears and plush animals.

Horace, a 1904 reproduction and a limited edition of 1,500 bears, costs a ridiculous $460, making him only slightly less overvalued than the Florida housing market. However, Shiloh will surely appreciate such decadence, given her humble Namibian roots.

Tom Cruise Quotes

I was feeling pressed in the interview with Matt Lauer. For me, my issue was really about child drugging. It's not like it is today, like people are really kind of openly talking about this.

I can't even articulate it, to be honest. That feeling, that connection. Just who she is and what she means to me.
