Kirsten Dunst: I love Cruise's Christmas cake!

Kirsten Dunst: I love Cruise's Christmas cake!

Actress Kirsten Dunst receives a Tom Cruise Christmas cake every year.

The blonde actress' first big movie role was opposite the screen icon in 1994's Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles, for which she earned a best supporting actress Golden Globe nomination. Over two decades later, Kirsten still remains close to Tom and they even share a tasty annual tradition.

"Yes, I run into Tom," she smiled to Britain's Stylist magazine. "He sends me a cake every Christmas. I call it the Cruise cake. It's so good - a coconut cake with white chocolate chips. It gets eaten within a day in my house. When the Cruise Cake gets delivered, it's like, 'Cruise Cake's here!' My friends know what that means."

Also starring in the chilling movie was Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt, with whom Kirsten shared her first ever kiss aged 11.

The star has a range of projects to her name, from Marvel's original Spider-Man movies to rom-com Elizabethtown. But there's one thing each of her jobs have in common - appealing to her younger self.

"I choose movies like a kid would: what's fun?" she said. "Also I say 'no' a lot. I hate when actors do that in interviews. 'Dude, I totally turned this down...' OK, no-one cares! You sound like a... (mouths the word d**k). Ha! I made mistakes, put it that way. Sometimes you read a script and it's a pile of s**t, it's bad."

But fans can next see her on the small screen in the second series of TV show Fargo. Adapted from the 1996 movie, the first season starring Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton was a hit around the globe. She plays small-town hairdresser Peggy Blomquist, with Kirsten promising that fans are in for a treat.
