What type of birthday gift does Tom Cruise give? If you're his loyal lawyer, the answer is a thoughtful one. Bert Fields turned 86 on March 31, and Cruise gifted the Greenberg Glusker partner with a "fabulous cake with numerous decorations depicting various aspects of my life," Fields tells THR. "He also gave me an extremely rare edition of Holinshed's history of England. He knows I write about English history, and this is a fantastic prize." Fields recently published his first historical novel, Destiny: A Novel of Napoleon & Josephine (Marmont Lane).
