Actor Will Smith was thrilled when his wife JADA PINKETT SMITH signed up to work with Tom Cruise in upcoming movie Collateral because the movie hunk kept him informed on his wife's health.

Cruise and Pinkett Smith flew out to Australia to make the movie alongside comedian Jamie Foxx, and while a number of men would worry about their wife starring opposite a screen heartthrob, Smith was happy to know she was in good hands.

He says, "Tom Cruise is exactly the person that you want your wife working with... I'll talk to Tom (and he'll say), 'Listen, Will, Jada's fine. She's not eating well and you should talk to her about that.'

"With Tom, everybody around him he wants completely comfortable. He wants them happy. That's my buddy there."
