In an interview with The Sun tom Cruise said that he wants to have ten kids. That may mean Katie Holmes is in line to have seven more babies. The 46-year-old actor is promoting his latest movie Valkyrie.
Tom says: “It’s a great responsibility to the Germans, for whom a man like Colonel von Stauffenberg means so much. And playing the role, I felt a responsibility to the man himself.
“The more I learnt about him, the greater my respect and admiration.
“The moment I read the screenplay, I knew it was an important story. It’s a true tale of heroic resistance to one of the great villains of history.”
During the interview with The Sun, Cruise stated that he is no longer discussing his belief in Scientology. Instead he directs those with questions to the group’s website.
He is admitting in the past he may have come off sounding a bit arrogant when dealing with the press. The past couple of years the Cruise image has been tarnished by his media antics, including a heated debate on the Today Show where he said dissed the use of medicine when dealing with postpartum depression. He is also well known for jumping like a wild man on Oprah’s couch during an interview proclaiming his love for Katie Holmes, 30, now his young wife.
During the Sun interview Cruise talked about his love of danger. He enjoys flying and motorbike. In fact he’s now teaching son, Connor how to ride.
Cruise and wife Katie Holmes keep in the public eye because they refuse to live in seclusion. He attends children’s groups like any other parent. He is determined to be a better father than his own. Thomas Cruise Mapother III left his family when Cruise was 12 years old. From that point on there was little communication between them.
He says that Nicole Kidman, whom he was married to prior to Holmes and mother to child Isabella and Connor is committed to sharing and parenting their children.
As for Holmes, he hopes to increase his brood with her.
Tom grins: “I want ten children. I love kids. I feel really fortunate to have the teenagers and a two and a half-year-old. It’s a great dynamic.”
His only fear with the 16-year gap between the two is that she may not be able to keep up with the active man. He appears to be just as smitten with Katie as when he jumped up and down on Winfrey’s sofa in 2005.
“Married life is very good, very lovely. I feel lucky to have Kate as my wife. She’s an extraordinary woman. She is funny and smart and she likes the same things that I do.
“She’s a very strong, gracious woman, and a great comedian. “
