Tom Cruise is like an older brother to COLLATERAL co-star Jada Pinkett SMITH - who labels the Hollywood hunk "protective".

Will Smith's wife, 32, says Cruise was very paternal with the film's crew - and often "took care" of everyone.

Pinkett Smith explains, "He spread his protective wings over me.

"He was like a big brother.

"He took care of the team by ordering large amounts of coffee and hot chocolate for us everyday."
