LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have wished their pal Jay Leno sweet success with his new primetime television show, which kicks off tonight.
A source close to “The Jay Leno Show” told Access Hollywood that the supercouple sent Jay and his staff almost 200 cupcakes with their good luck wishes as the comedian gets set to debut “The Jay Leno Show” on Monday night.
Tom and Katie purchased the cupcakes and a coconut cake from Sprinkles, a celeb-friendly cupcake shop in Beverly Hills.
The cupcakes are the second time Tom has shown his early support of his buddy Jay.
The talk show host revealed that Tom previously showed his enthusiasm for “The Jay Leno Show’s” racetrack, a new segment for the program which sees celebs compete for the fastest time.
“I’ve told it to a number of stars and, as a matter of fact, even Tom Cruise called and said ‘Can I get in early and practice?’ I said ‘No, nobody gets to practice,’” Jay recounted in August to a Television Critics Associate panel in Pasadena. “The fun thing about it, there’s a lot of people, [which] people want to see, perhaps athletes and people like this who are not good talkers but would be fun in this sort of environment – to see if Shaquille O’Neal is faster than Cameron Diaz.”
And in fact, Cameron Diaz is coming to Leno’s show. She and Tom will appear on his program together on Tuesday evening.
