Meanwhile, Welch has been friends with Sir Michael since her artist husband Lincoln Townley painted his portrait in 2016.
Welch shared a clip on social media of her telling an X-rated joke at the actor’s birthday dinner, which appeared to leave Cruise and Sir Michael’s wife Shakira in hysterics.
The former Coronation Street actress wrote on Instagram: “Such an honour to be asked by Shakira to say a few words at Sir Michael Caines’ 90th birthday!!! He loves a dirty joke and so does @tomcruise it appears!!!! Great night and amazing company.”
Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber also attended the party with his wife Madeleine.
Actress Mia Farrow, who starred alongside Sir Michael in Woody Allen film Hannah and Her Sisters, posted a birthday message to the British actor.
She called Sir Michael a “funny and wise friend” and posted a picture of them together at an awards ceremony in 1979.
