British teen singer Joss Stone has picked up an A-list fan - Hollywood hunk Tom Cruise.

Stone, 16, has wowed circles in America with her mature voice, and MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE star Cruise is now such a huge fan of hers, he constantly plays her CD SOUL SESSIONS in his car.

He says, "I just discovered her. A friend of mine works as an assistant for (director) Michael Mann. He said, 'Listen to this girl, what do you think? How old do you think this girl is?'

"He showed me the picture. This young girl from England, I wish her well. She's very talented."
