Katie Holmes celebrated her 30th birthday Thursday on the Broadway stage — with a little help from the All My Sons audience and husband Tom Cruise.
Although Cruise was in Los Angeles at the Valkyrie premiere, he was still there in spirit.
He tells Usmagazine.com that he arranged that Holmes be presented with a specially-made birthday cake as the curtain fell.
“I set up whole thing,” he told Us at the Valkyrie premiere. “The cast came out with a huge cake. The audience sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to her. It was really nice. You know, I plan it out. I think ahead.”
He added that they also “celebrated” Wednesday night before he left for L.A.
“And I’ve had a lot of surprises for her throughout the day,” he added.
Next up for the Cruise clan: Christmas!
“We’re just gonna chill,” he told Us. “We haven’t decided where we’ll be yet.”
Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer showed off a rare public display of affection, strolling arm-in-arm in New York City Thursday night.
Aniston, 39, smiled as she snuggled up to Mayer, 31, as he greeted photographers. The two — who wore matching black jackets and jeans — then dashed into La Esquina, where Kelly Ripa was also dining with husband Mark Consuelos.
While walking, he plugged her new movie Marley & Me.
“I’m happy to report the movie is completely in focus,” he told photographers as Aniston laughed. “I want everyone to know that.”
Then he joked that he and Aniston were walking all the way to Harlem.
“90 more blocks, guys!” he teased photographers. “90 more blocks!”
On Wednesday, Aniston told David Letterman that she met Mayer at a Hollywood party thrown by CAA agent Bryan Lourd.
“He was lovely on your show,” she also said of Mayer’s Thanksgiving performance, calling it “beautiful. It really kicked off the holiday sprit.”
In January’s GQ, Aniston said she and Mayer “care deeply for each other, and we’re just trying to figure it out.”
Aniston also said in December’s Vogue that people need to “mind their own business” when it comes to their relationship.
“Did you ever think Claudia Schiffer and David Copperfield made sense?” she said. “Love just shows up.”
An employee of David Copperfield was hospitalized Wednesday with a broken arm after one of the illusionist’s tricks went awry on stage.
The unidentified employee was assisting Copperfield during the “fan illusion” and got his arm caught in the fan. In the illusion, Copperfield appears to walk through the fan and disappear as he turns to smoke.
The show, dubbed An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion, took place in Las Vegas at MGM Grand’s Hollywood Theatre.
“This is a trick David has done over 3,000 times,” executive producer Chris Kenner says. “This was a freak accident.”
The show was stopped after the mishap, but it’s unlikely the crowd could get a clear view of the accident, Kenner says.
“He is recovering,” Kenner says. “People are always saying that it’s magic and it isn’t dangerous. This goes to show you that it is.”
Kenner said Copperfield will continue to perform the fan illusion in his shows. None of Copperfield’s shows at MGM Grand have been postponed due to the incident.
