David and Victoria Beckham have always been “charmed” by Tom Cruise — and even displayed photos of themselves with the “Top Gun” star at home, according to sources.
So Cruise was, naturally, a VIP guest at Victoria’s 50th birthday celebrations Saturday, where he wowed the crowd with his dance-floor moves.
The “Mission: Impossible” star joined guests including the Spice Girls, Gordon Ramsay, Eva Longoria and Salma Hayek Saturday night at London’s exclusive Oswald’s private members club.

The “Mission: Impossible” actor showed off his breakdancing skills and even did the splits for the “absolutely dumbfounded” crowd, according to the Daily Mail.
But his close friendship with the Beckhams goes back decades.
An industry source told Page Six, “The Beckhams were super close with Tom [for years] — they went to loads of parties at his house in LA.
“He is very, very charming. They were starstruck by him.”

The couple actually met Cruise years before their move to Los Angeles in 2007, and another source who knows the couple said they were big fans.
According to Jenny Frankfurt, former manager to Victoria’s Spice Girls bandmate Geri Halliwell, the Beckhams had an array of photos of themselves with the star at their country home, dubbed Beckingham Palace.
Frankfurt wrote that, upon arriving at the estate in Hertfordshire, “There was a huge Christmas tree in the hall and several tables of photographs, one devoted completely to about 30 pictures of Victoria and David with Tom Cruise.”

Some industry sources said that devout Scientologist Cruise tried to talk to the couple about his church and they politely told him they were uninterested.
In his 2022 book, “A Billion Years: My Escape From a Life in the Highest Ranks of Scientology,” former high-ranking Scientology officer Mike Rinder claimed the church went to great expense trying to woo the Beckhams through Cruise.
“A professional-grade soccer pitch was constructed on the property at Gold [Base, church headquarters in San Jacinto, Calif.]. The ground was leveled, irrigation installed, perfect turf, goals raised,” Rinder wrote. “A full-time caretaker was appointed from the Gold staff … It was built for one purpose only: so Tom Cruise could woo his friend David to come to Gold. It never happened.”

A source who knows the couple denied they ever discussed Scientology with Cruise.
Victoria famously attended Cruise’s star-studded wedding to Katie Holmes — mother of his estranged daughter Suri Cruise — in Italy in 2006..
Cruise is a soccer fan and has been seen at many of David’s games.
And David once revealed that he turned to the Oscar nominee for advice on whether to leave Real Madrid and join LA Galaxy in a series of late-night phone calls.

“Obviously, I’d asked him for his advice as well because he’s a very wise man; he’s a very good friend of mine,” Beckham said at the time.
Cruise threw the Beckhams a lavish “Welcome to LA” party when they moved to the US.
Speaking in his Netflix documentary, “BECKHAM”, David reminisced, “The funny thing was, I was friends with Tom Cruise. I remember Tom turning round and saying, ‘me and Will are gonna throw you a party’. I was like ‘Will?’ and he said ‘Will Smith’.”

The party was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, with Cruise clearing the dance floor to recreate the choreography from his 1983 film “Risky Business.”
Despite rumors over the past few years, “There was never any falling out between them, not at all,” said the source of Cruise and the Beckhams. “They have always remained close and in contact.”
Another source who knows the couple said the friendship quieted down when the Beckhams left LA and David went to play in France, but they have grown closer now that they are all living mostly in the UK.
