Tom Cruise Opens Up To Playboy

Can you believe Tom Cruise is about to turn 50?! I really can’t. One thing he’s done to mark the occasion was give an interview to Playboy magazine. has some excerpts from his interview.

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!
