Tom Cruise had his first visit with daughter Suri since he finalized his divorce settlement with Katie Holmes, according to Us Weekly. The actor flew overnight from the California set of “Oblivion” to spend time with the 6-year-old in New York, where paparazzi spotted Cruise carrying Suri around, her head buried in his shoulder. “Katie wants to make sure the visits are in the context of him being a parent figure,” a source recently told the magazine. “He adores Suri, but now he’s afraid he won’t be able to have a close relationship with her.”

Halle Berry gave producers a bit of a scare when she was rushed to the hospital after falling and hitting her head on a concrete floor on the set of her new movie Tuesday night, according to USA Today. “Halle Berry suffered a minor head injury while shooting a fight sequence on the set of her film, ‘the Hive,’” a rep for the Oscar-winning actress says in a statement. “She was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but she checked out healthy and was released. She’ll continue production as planned.”

In his first public comments about his relationship with Jennifer Lopez, Casper Smart admits he didn’t see fireworks the first time they met. “I don’t think it was for either of us,” Smart says when asked by “Good Morning America” if it was love at first sight for him and Lopez. “It was just very natural how it happened. There was nothing before, no flirting, nothing.”

Paris Jackson, the 14-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson, has accepted a role in the upcoming film “Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys,” but her decision to follow her acting dreams is causing a rift with her aunt Janet Jackson, according to Us Weekly. “Janet thinks Paris should enjoy being a kid and possibly go to college,” a source says. “She feels it goes against Michael’s wishes to keep his kids out of the limelight until age 18.” The teen, for her part, is “hoping for more roles,” according to the source. “It’s a huge dispute.”

Andrew Garfield has a confession to make: He has a nasty reality TV habit. “When I’m working on something very intense — like ['the Amazing Spider-Man'] was very intense to work on, believe it or not, and I’m doing a play at the moment which is very, very intense — whenever I’m not on stage I want to watch reality television,” the British actor tells Total Film. “I want to watch, like, ‘the Voice’ or ‘the Bachelor.’ Don’t be surprised by that — it’s the greatest show on TV.”

Rush Limbaugh is looking for conspiracies in some interesting places, including the new film “the Dark Knight Rises.” On his radio show, Limbaugh pointed out that the villain in the film is named Bane, while the venture capital firm presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney worked for is called Bain. “Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious fire breathing four eyed whatever it is villain in this movie is named Bane?” Limbaugh asked. “A lot of people are going to see the movie — and it’s a lot of brain-dead people, entertainment, the pop culture crowd — and they’re going to hear Bane in the movie and they’re going to associate Bain. The thought is that when they start paying attention to the campaign later in the year, and Obama and the Democrats keep talking about Bain, Romney and Bain, that these people will think back to the Batman movie — ‘Oh, yeah, I know who that is.’” For the record, the Bane character was first introduced in Batman comics in 1993 and previously appeared in the 1997 film “Batman & Robin.”
