Dakota Fanning has Tom Cruise to thank for her massive shoe collection.

The “Uptown Girls” actress, who turned 30 in February, revealed that Cruise, 61, has gifted her a new pair of shoes every year for her birthday during Wednesday’s episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”

“I find this amazing that every year on your birthday, Tom Cruise still sends you a present on your birthday and says ‘Happy Birthday.’ That’s so nice,” Clarkson said, adding that they worked together “so long ago.”

Fanning said that she had just turned 11 years old when she first worked with Cruise on their 2005 film, “War of the Worlds,” and to celebrate he had gifted her her “first cell phone.”

“It was a Motorola Razr,” Fanning recalled. “I didn’t have anyone to call but I just wanted a Razr so bad. And I must have been talking about it a lot because that’s what he got me. It was such great memory.”

However, since then, Cruise has honored her birthday every year by sending a new pair of shoes.

“He always sends me the same thing every year, after the cellphone,” Fanning said, adding that she always “loved shoes” when she was little.

She continued, “I started to be able to fit into really small adult shoes when I was on the ‘War of the Worlds’ press tour so I was very excited about them.

And so, from that birthday on, he always sends me shoes.”

Clarkson called the gift choice “so nice” but “so random.”

“You must have a massive shoe collection brought to you by Tom Cruise,” Clarkson joked, to which Fanning responded with a belly laugh.

Cruise is known for gifting his friends and co-stars with lavish presents constantly; he famously sends more than 300 people a special coconut cake at Christmas time and paid for “Top Gun: Maverick” co-star Glen Powell to get his pilot’s license.

Fanning also admitted that she doesn’t usually get starstruck by Hollywood stars since she started acting with major A-listers from such a young age.

“Of course I do [get starstruck],” Fanning said of someone she admires or watched a lot growing up. “Of course I do, but I do mostly get starstruck by reality stars.”

Fanning added that she is “totally guilty” of being a “superfan” of Lisa Vanderpump and other Bravolebrities.

“I love her. She’s really nice,” Fanning said of Vanderpump, to which Clarkson agreed.
