Actress Dakota Fanning is proudly walking around with a new accessory, after Tom Cruise bought her a mobile phone for her 11th birthday.

Fanning celebrated her big day on 23 February (05) as she and Cruise promoted their new hit movie War of the Worlds, and she was thrilled when the actor gave her something she'd long been asking her parents for.

She says, "Tom gave me a cell phone, so that was really cool. My mom and dad wouldn't let me have a cell phone but Tom got me one for my birthday!

"It's really funny, 'cause on my cell phone I pretend that I'm on the phone when I'm not and I'll pretend that I have messages when I'm just out on the street."
