New York: Katie Holmes has revealed that she is happy to get married to Tom Cruise because she has gained remarkable freedom in her career than before.
While America puzzles over her personal decisions, like how a nice Catholic girl could marry an actor 2 inches shorter than herself and suddenly convert to a religion created by a science fiction writer in 1952, Holmes remains as happy and upbeat as ever.
"I feel really, really lucky," the New York Daily News quoted her as telling Glamour magazine.
"I feel the best response [to all the stories] is just going about my life: enjoying life, making movies, being a good mom and good wife, and focusing on that. Because if you`re doing well, what can they say?" she added.
Many people say that Holmes has been brainwashed.
They can call her marriage to her childhood idol (16 years her senior) a sham and even criticize her for letting her adorable 4-year-old daughter, Suri, wear heels.
After all, Holmes remains a married movie star, which is a rarity in Hollywood these days, with a beautiful daughter, a fashion sense that can`t go wrong and the luxury of picking the roles she wants.
Through her marriage to Cruise, whose estimated net worth is somewhere in the area of 250 million pounds, Holmes has gained a professional freedom most actresses would die for.
