Comedian Jamie Foxx enjoyed his experience of working with Tom Cruise on COLLATERAL so much, he bought the actor a $20,000 (GBP11,000) diamond watch as a sign of gratitude.

Foxx missed out on the opportunity to work with Cruise on 1996's JERRY MAGUIRE, when he lost the role to Cuba Gooding JR.

But while working with Cruise on Collateral, the pair become close pals and Foxx decided to mark their newfound friendship with an 8.5 carat KING A1 AVIANNE + CO watch.

And the generous actor also purchased a 3.18 carat watch, costing $3,800 (GBP2,100), for co-star Jada Pinkett Smith.

Foxx says, "Making Collateral with Tom and Jada was more than just work for me - they are true friends and I wanted to show my appreciation.

"This watch is Tom's official bling."
