Halloween is a time for people to be free and dress up as whatever or whomever they like, but some people dining at fancy New York City eatery Mr. Chow’s on Saturday, Oct. 27, had an uncomfortable run-in with a well-known Hollywood duo.

According to Page Six, Katie Holmes and her daughter Suri Cruise were seated at a table next to revelers wearing “Team Katie” and “Free Suri” shirts.

Also dining next to the real Katie and Suri: a man dressed as Tom Cruise from Top Gun, of course!

As can be expected, the brief encounter was uncomfortable. A source revealed, “When they sat down, they exchanged an awkward glance with Katie, but she kept her cool and didn’t say anything.” 

Thankfully for Katie, the costumed bunch respected little Suri and shielded their costumes.“The embarrassed Halloween crew quickly covered up the costumes before Suri got a chance to take a look,” the source continued.

Can you say aw-kward?! What do you think of Katie’s pre-Halloween encounter? Weigh in below!
