Sydney: Tom Cruise has rebutted rumours that his marriage to Katie Holmes is crumbling, insisting that he is quite happy with their relationship.
In an interview in the June issue of Playboy, the star said that he feels he doesn’t have to ‘prove anything’.
“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,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Cruise as saying.
“I hear it [the gossip], I read it, I get it. But life is not a matter of trying to prove anything to anybody.”
The 49-year-old insisted that he would not tolerate untruths about his family.
“You start with a letter saying, “OK, you know it’s not true. Apologise.” But with certain ones you have to go, “OK, you crossed a line, and now you have the attention of my lawyers.”
“When it involves your kids, you have to go, ‘Here’s the line’,” he added.
The ‘Mission Impossible’ star described Holmes as ‘funny and charming’.
“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,” he added.
