On why he’s sued some tabloids for things they’ve written: “They know I mean it, that if I have to, I will sue. You start with a letter saying, ‘Okay, you know it’s not true. Apologize.’ But with certain ones you have to go, ‘Okay, you crossed a line, and now you have the attention of my lawyers.’ [laughs] When it involves your kids, you have to go, ‘Here’s the line.’ ”
On responding to the rumors: “Does refuting things help? Not really. There comes a point when you just have to go, ‘You know what? Here’s how I’ve lived my life: I’ve never been late to a set. I make films I believe in. I feel privileged to be able to do what I love.’ You just have to keep going and remember that. I hear [the gossip], I read it, I get it. But life is not a matter of trying to prove anything to anybody.”
On his wife, Katie Holmes: “[She] is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you’d see it. Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity. [Katie is] funny and charming, and when she walks into the room, I just feel better. I’m a romantic. I like doing things like creating romantic dinners, and she enjoys that. I don’t know what to say – I’m just happy, and I have been since the moment I met her. What we have is very special.”
That’s one thing I’ve always noticed about Tom: you hear all these crazy things, but then you listen to what he actually says, and he makes so much sense!
