Tom Cruise still has it bad for Katie Holmes
Six years of marriage has not diminished the love Tom Cruise feels for his famous wife.
In Playboy's June issue, the “Mission: Impossible” star says he loves Katie Holmes as much now as he did when they got hitched in 2006 - even though naysayers were placing bets on how long their union would last.
"She is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you'd see it,” said the 49-year-old actor, who stars in the upcoming film “Rock of Ages.”
“Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity," he went on. "When she becomes interested in something, she doesn't talk about it - she does it."
Case in point: Holmes’ continual willingness to try new things.
"One week I said to her, 'You've been up in the middle of the night. Is everything okay?'” Cruise recalled. “She smiled and then threw this thing on my desk and said, 'I wrote this script.' She wanted to try it, and she did. She wanted to try designing clothes, and now her line is wonderful and, to me, an example of how she just creates beautiful things in her life. She has a voice and warmth as an artist, as a mother."
If you can't tell, "I'm a romantic," Cruise said. "I like doing things like creating romantic dinners, and she enjoys that ... I'm just happy, and I have been since the moment I met her. What we have is very special."
Cruise would rather spend time with his 33-year-old wife and their daughter, Suri, than anything else, but that doesn't mean he slacks on perfecting his craft.
“I needed to find out if I could really sing!" he told W magazine of rehearsals for “Rock of Ages,” in which he plays Stacee Jaxx, an aging, long-haired, tattooed rockstar.
“[Axl] Rose’s former vocal coach [Ron Anderson] came in and worked with me,” he said. “And then I had to learn how to play guitar. I’m very good at air guitar—and air drums—but I had never played an actual guitar."
After spending weeks honing "Stacee’s technical skills, I was thinking about the character, and I said, “You know what? I need a monkey,” Cruise said, referring to his character’s animal bestie in the musical-turned-movie. “The baboon’s name has to be Hey Man. Stacee Jaxx doesn’t work without Hey Man."
“Rock of Ages” hits theaters June 15.

Hi there, simply changed into alert to your weblog thru Google, and located that it is truly informative. I'm gonna be careful for brussels. I will appreciate if you continue this in future. Many other folks will likely be benefited from your writing. Cheers!
Ha..funny to read this article now that Kate has filed for divorce a few days ago..timing is perfect! LOL
Nice blog here! Additionally your website so much up very fast! What web host are you the usage of? Can I am getting your affiliate link on your host? I want my site loaded up as fast as yours lol
Can't believe he's 49 years old. I recently saw him in a movie made in 1983, where he was a football star trying to get out of a dirty coal mining town, with a football scholarship. Talk about coming along way.
She's much to good for him.
He will "love" her until the marriage hits 9.5 years–and then he'll file for divorce (10 years is the magic number in California for assets acquired during marriage) just as he did with Kidman. Of course with Kidman, he didn't succeed in forcing her into Scientology. It worked with Holmes.
HA! Boy, were YOU WRONG!
I'm sure he said the same thing about Nicole Kidman. And when he gets bored, all he has to do is make another Mission Impossible movie so he can have another ethnic costar to sleep with.
Another thing. Tom is right about psychology. It's a quack science. You can't fix a computer by just looking at the outside and trying to figure out what is happening on the inside. You have to open it up. I respect neurology, not psychology. I remember reading one study where you had two groups who lost family. One group had no counceling. The other group talked to a psychologist everyday. After 6 months, the group talking to the psychologists were far more depressed than the group who had none.
Read about David Reimer.
you know not of what you speak - quite typical for for people on the internet. its best not to comment when you have no understanding.
So much hate for Tom. How can you hate the guy? Everybody who knows him says he's a super nice guy. He loves his wife alot. That's why he was jumping on couches. He loves life and makes decent movies.
I don't believe it in this two ,she looks miserable......after the famous jump in Oprah's couch his fame went down!
She's the perfect "beard" for Cruise.
great facelift tommy-boy
Of course he does-she's built like a 12 yr old boy.
Built like a 12 yo boy???...obviously you haven't seen many pictures or interviews...she's rocking at least B if not C cup tight butt and great legs....if that's your idea of a 12 yo boy then I would say a lot of us guys out here like 12 yo boys. Stop talking our of your #ss.
I bet Cruise likes to get massages, the same way Travolta does.
It's funny because I initially, quickly, and erroneously read the headline as: "Tom Cruise still bad for Katie Holmes." Just as true probably.
Tom Cruise is a star.
I am not about raining on anyone's parade. But I too could create beautiful and wonderful things had I the funds and mobility to do it. Being married to Mr. Cruise provides that type of lifestyle. You can follow your creative instincts without having to be up to do the 9/5 and after 9/5 duties. Oh well. some have it luckier than most.
When is Tom coming out of the closet?
when are you coming out of the closet
iám very happy for them. love the tom family really nice
Why dont you stfu you stoopid fkn khunt. I swear u dum khunts are so ignorant.
I enjoy reading a sweet story about love. Tom seems to really love his family and that is just beautiful. I am very happy for them.
I think no one has the right to judge another god is the only one can. If they are happy let them be.
I think no one has the right to judge another god is the only one can. If they are happy let them be.
Really? Only god can judge? That's the most pathetic bullcrap ever uttered. First, he doesn't exist. Then, even if he did, he'd want you to judge other people based on how they act. It's called common sense. We all do it every single second of every single day. And if you don't believe that we judge who we're dealing with, ask yourself why you talk to some people differently than others...It's because you've decided who is worthy of what information. YOU MADE A JUDGEMENT. Stupid people should be sterilized...
I think she is so hot. Saw her naked once. She has some of the nicest t i t s and little waist I have ever see. You heferds out there are just jealous. You wish you loved that hot. Instaed of being such f a t a$$e$ like you are.
How many couches do you think they have been through bc he jumps around confessing his love to her?
I've really never known how to feel about them...their kinda one of those couples like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie...sometimes I think it's all for appearances or like a prior person stated, there's some kind of contract or something involved...or maybe it's a Scientology thing...but I'm not them, so I can only really speculate on this...however I've just always felt that something wasn't "normal"...
Bet she is a Sq yard of shag if unkeep
It's unkept you tard
Well since you didn't correct it and say it's unkempt I was correct.
ROTFLMFAO!!!! Axl Rose has a vocal coach? What did he sound like before? I will still be laughing about that one tomorrow!
I'm gay like a brick.
you crack me up.you are always saying someone is gay.you must be to always say it.i don't care for tom but if hes happy and really loves her.then be it.now shush before somebody calls you little gay boy.
I love Mr. Cruise. He looks a lot like my vinny. O i love my vinny.
He is fruit alright.
I think it's a shame he's in that Scientology cult, but it's good that he is so full of love.
Tom Cruise loves his wife....what's wrong with that?
Tom Cruise is a Scientologist.....so what?
Why isn't it possible to separate the "actor" that is Tom Cruise from the "person" that is Tom Cruise?
@Mary-I agree with you. If somebody is happy in their marriage, that's great. It's their marriage, & whatever works for them is nobody's business but their own.
Go eat your own shiite. Dont dump it on us.
They're still together because of their marriage contract, as long as they stay married Kate gets money, I'm surprised the article didn't mention that.
I actually like Katie I just wish she was more selective in the films she chooses to be in.
I think he is a useless father, look how his children have turned out?
And the youngest doesnt look any better and she is only 6 what will she be like at 16 completely out of control!
Wow, what a rare gift you have. You can look at a photo of a 6 year old that you have never met and do not know and tell us exactly how she will behave at 16. It must be fabulous being so perfect that you can judge others like that.
I'm not a big Cruise fan but if he's really being sincere about his wife...then kudos to you Tom. It's a rare thing these days to have married people still feeling like they did in the beginning. Usually after 5 or 6 yrs, people can't stand their mate and want out.
I do not like Tom Cruise. His rant against mental health treatment and psychiatrists was so asinine for someone who knows nothing about this issue. I have not paid a penny for any thing hie is invovled in nor will I . I don't care how he feels about anything!!!
Amen, Gail. I feel the very same way. I have not seen any of his movies since he did that. I even change the channel when an old movie of his comes on. He's brainwashed by Scientology. If he wants to live his life that way, fine, but don't cram it down anyone else's throat.
I also agree with you but lets wait and see if it lasts past 10 years or if like Nicole Kidman he divorces to get out paying a divorce settlement!
Gail – yet you care enough to post a negative comment on this board.
Somebody has some Mental Health Issues!!
I'm glad he is happy, but why does she always look so sad?
She always looks to me like she smells something bad.
Jeff the def, unless you know from first-hand experience, I would refrain from saying that kind of stuff. Where are the photos, videos, etc. to prove that? Don't spread gossip you can't prove.
Probably because her husband is ultra-turbo gay.
Didn't stuff likethis happen a lot in the 50s? The good wife would keep her mouth closed even though her husband was chicken hawking for any young stud everyday of the week and twice on Saturday?
That's right, he's a fruit?
I always wondered about him.............
