Although Brooke Shields and Tom Cruise have had their differences in the past, it appears that Tom’s bride-to-be is making amends.

Brooke and Katie not only share the coincidence of having their babies born on the same day on the same floor of the same hospital - they now share the bond of friendship.

Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush caught up with Brooke at a charity event she hosted this past weekend in Pacific Palisades, Calif., and spoke to her about new friend Katie, who was also in attendance.

Billy asked, “Tell me about your friendship with Katie Holmes? am I right in saying you guys had babies, same day, same hospital… you guys have struck up a friendship, haven’t you?”

“Absolutely. Life is really short, and when you see these babies,” Shields replied, “…I think you never know how life is going to bring people together, and it can be absurd and it can be interesting.”

Billy went on to ask Brooke if the rumor was true that Katie watched the season premiere of “Grey’s Anatomy” with her, and Brooke laughed as she confirmed it.

“It’s true. There (were) a bunch of us here and we were insane about it and we - you weren’t allowed to speak or talk, everyone was in my living room and got this new TV… I love them, the acting is so great and it’s such a good soap opera - love it, it’s fun.”

Nothing like Dr. McDreamy to bring the girls together!

Tune into Access Hollywood on Thursday to see the full interview with Brooke.
