Appearing on ‘Watch What Happens Live’, Fanning was asked about some of her most famous co-stars.

When Cruise’s name came up Fanning said: “He has sent me a birthday gift every year since I was 11 years old. Beautiful gifts.

“I always think, ‘Oh, when I’m 18, he’ll probably stop. Oh, 21, he’ll stop. But every year. It’s really kind.”

“The assumption that we're really competitive, that people even ask that, is horrible. It's implied our family [is] torn apart by jealousy.

“It shows people don't pay attention to who we are, just surface stuff: sisters, blond, blue-eyed, kind of the same age," she continued.

“We don't even think we look alike! Our personalities are worlds apart; we both feel that, we both know that. Anyone who knows us knows that.”
