Tom Cruise gushes about “amazing” Katie: “Every day I fall more in love with her”

Tom Cruise isn’t quite finished pimping out his family for the sake of promoting Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, which I guess is sort of understandable since he doesn’t mave much else to talk about other than his insane stunt work in the movie. I mean, he’s finally figured out that no one wants to hear him talk about Scientology and the evils of psychiatry, so that’s something positive. Still, Tom’s been around the globe a few times in the past few weeks, and then he returned to New York City to get papped with the family all weekend while carting poor Suri around without a coat. By the time he and Katie actually walked the red carpet, they both looked exhausted as hell.

As a general rule, I can’t even imagine how exhausting it must be for Katie to deal with Tom on a consistent basis and even experience his suffocating “lovebombing” when he’s away for work too. Make no mistake that Tom is still thrilled to have Katie as his wife (whatever that actually means to them as a couple), and he’s still giving interviews to discuss her “amazing” qualities. He really needs to learn some new adjectives, right?

The parties just don’t stop for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes this holiday season. The couple celebrated their five-year anniversary last month and her 33rd birthday on Dec. 18.

“Every day I fall more in love with her,” Cruise, 49, told PEOPLE at the New York premiere of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol on Monday at the Ziegfeld Theatre. “It’s been quite an amazing five years because of her. She’s an incredible woman. She’s everything to me.”

To mark her birthday, the couple enjoyed a Big Apple tradition at the Radio City Christmas Spectacular starring The Rockettes with daughter Suri, 5, and her grandparents, Kathleen and Martin Holmes.

The family then dined at Buddakan for a birthday meal on Sunday.

“We had a lot of fun. It was a great day,” Cruise says of the party, which included some romantic treats for his wife. “We had flowers and cake. All that stuff.”

Yeah, Katie’s birthday must have been quite the event, what with the Sciento-clown in attendance. Shudder. Meanwhile, Tom hasn’t forgotten about his other girl either, for he’s also paying lipservice to Suri as well:

Suri Cruise isn’t a sartorial copycat.

The fashionable 5-year-old — who’s been known to rock faux fur jackets and kitten heels over the years — has an innate sense of style, according to her dad Tom Cruise.

“She was just born that way. I don’t know what to say,” a proud Cruise, 49, told Us Weekly at the Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol premiere in NYC Monday. “She really creates her own outfits.”

Adding that Suri “dresses herself,” Cruise said his wife Katie Holmes, 33, has helped curate their daughter’s love of clothes.

“Katie has her create things and sew and stuff like that. It’s kind of amazing,” Cruise said. “It’s beautiful. It’s really beautiful.”

Holmes — who recently admitted to coordinating outfits with her celeb BFF Victoria Beckham — also helps her action star hubby get dressed for red carpet events.

“Whatever my wife wants me to wear, I wear,” Cruise laughed. “It’s simple. She has amazing taste.”

[From Us Magazine]

Okay, that last part must have been a lie because, seriously, are we supposed to believe that Tom only wears lifts because “amazing” Katie dictates that he must do so? I think she sort of enjoys towering over him sometimes. Rather, it’s Tom who can’t handle the truth.

In addition to Tom’s vomit-inducing words about his lovely and incredible wife, the Cruise also stopped by “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Monday evening to promote MI4, and he barely gets a word in about his wife and daughter because Dave (mercifully) keeps quizzing him about the movie stunts. However, Tom does make quick mention of Katie staying home from the international MI4 tour because the schedule was jam-packed, not because she was lounging somewhere on a recharging dock as I previously guessed. My bad.

On a slightly amusing note, the Daily Mail has some photos of a very heavily made-up Tom outside the Ed Sullivan show after chatting with Letterman. While I’m aware that guests on the show wear make-up for the cameras, the amount of blusher and lipstick on Tom is ridiculous, and someone should’ve made him wash that stuff off before heading onto the street. Fortunately, you can’t really see it while he’s chatting to Dave onscreen though. Here’s a clip of the show, which is largely uneventful because Tom’s apparently taken a few PR lessons on how to hide the crazy. He does slip once though when Letterman says the word “ass” — Tom begins laughing hysterically and then repeats the word. What a freak.

Now as a special bonus, here’s ore of Tom’s freaky plastic-surgery face from the MI4 NYC premiere. You know you love it.

    So what, I still like Tom C as his roles

    • T.C. says:

      At least Tom is entertaining and crazy both in real life plus the screen. His wife is boring all around. Don’t understand the “sympathy” around her. She is the one that decided to marry him as some type of trophy wife sand benefits financially from that marriage. I don’t feel sorry for her at all.

    • call_in says:

      and I bet he’s still super good-looking in real life

  2. brin says:

    Well that’s all Katebot ever says,too…. everything is “amazing”, must be the first word in Xenu’s dictionary.

    • Alix says:

      There definitely needs to be a moratorium on the use of “amazing” (as well as the phrase “obsessed with”). Why DOES he need to gush so much? And why is all this gushing so… generic? Pray tell, what IS so amazing about Katie? Besides the fact that she’s an amazingly compliant robot-wife? Seriously — he’s big with the compliments, but it’s as though he doesn’t know her well enough to describe the particulars that make her special. You get the sense that they don’t know each other any better now than they did five years ago.

  3. john thing says:

    simply amazing

  4. tracking says:

    “Every day I fall more in love with her.” Um, okay.

  5. DD says:

    Sad, old, confused man.

    • Jaxx says:

      Perfectly said. As if we all think he is young and hip because he is married to a roboticized young’un.

  6. Eve says:

    Yes, he’s wearing too much make-up in that Daily Mail picture…but the hair is perfect! Seriously, that’s the best haircut he’s ever had.

    I never liked him as an actor — and I still think his acting consists in freezing his face in two or three “intense” expressions. But he used to be a moviestar.

    Sometimes I feel kinda bad for him — for having joined that cult — because I don’t think he’s necessarily a bad person (probably confused, as someone else said above). But then again, that was his choice.

  7. Jackie says:

    she looks miserable, but it must be completely exhausting having to deal with this man on a daily basis.

    at least tom didn’t do his weird constant laughing thing on letterman…ya, he has been coached.

  8. lisa says:

    I think Tom looks really really good. I don’t find him sexy.. but he looks better than many of the men the women on this side love to swoon over. And that full face picture of him under the video just shows he is aging well.

    So I don’t care about his religion or whatever it is. I know my boyfriend and his friends don’t read blogs like this. Guys don’t care about Tom’s marriage or the gossip stuff. They just want to go see an action movie. Tom gave them that.

  9. labyrinth says:

    Must be a kick in the teeth for Isabella (adopted child) to hear that Suri has a natural gift for fashion design “she was just born that way” and dresses her Mom Katie, while she can only get an intern gig at Holmes & Yang.

  10. Vee says:

    What about his other kids…….so sad they’ve been reduced to the background. It’s all about Suri, all the time.

    And I loathe the word “amazing!” It’s so overused, he sounds like a contestant on The Bachelor!

    • Ruffian9 says:

      As brin said above, it must be a super-approved word in scientology. Like, you must use it 10 times per day….or it’s audit time. I think for 2012 it should be ‘stupendous’

  11. Tapioca says:

    I ♥ TC

    There, I said it. If he didn’t exist you’d have to make him up – the Stepford Wives, the brainwashing cult, the shoelifts, the serial killer-like intensity – yet he’s got genuine charisma, has been making good movies for 30 years and actually pays attention to his fans with the long premiere walkabouts.

    I am definitely looking forward to seeing M:I4 this Xmas (Xenu-mas!) whilst thanking everything holy that I don’t have to live with him.

  12. Mia says:

    He must have gotten surgery just because of his age, but he looks really good right now. The surgery isn’t too noticeable at all. I think his current look is pretty good right now, the hair, the face and the styling has all been spot-on for his MI rounds, I’m impressed.

    • Ruffian9 says:

      I agree that he’s been tweaked, but it’s pretty subtle. Big 2011 bonus check for the surgeon!

  13. Bite me says:

    Well tommy girl I will be watching you on the big screen come this weekend… Praise Xenu!!!!!!

  14. Jenn says:

    What is really sad about the older children is that both their parents are in NYC and being seen with their bio children, but they are no where in sight. Maybe it is because they are teens and don’t want it, but it just seems like they are being left out.

    As for Mr. and Mrs. Cruise, at least she is standing up straight for once, though her smile is bent.

  15. GoodCapon says:

    Katie’s dress has lots of potential.

  16. LeaR says:

    Why didn’t People magazine get a quote from Katie Holmes? Perhaps the writer doesn’t understand Morse code? Because my sources tell me that Katie was frantically blinking out the message, “Trapped. Send help. Anyone. Please.”

    • podzol says:

      I’ve been sensing from the past couple of pictures that Katie actually… might have full-blown depression (too bad the CO$ doesn’t recognize it). She’s always had a blank yet innocent stare, but lately it’s like her eyes have been imploring someone to help her and she just oozes sadness. I get “lost little girl” vibes, not only here but basically from all the candid pap pictures too.

  17. Tierra says:

    They’ve both been over using the word “amazing” since they’ve been together.
    I hear other celebs say it all the time too. maybe its more of a Hollywood thing than a SC thing. Either way, its beyond annoying.
    Aside from that, his plastic surgeon did an excellent job on him.

  18. Dea says:

    I just love these two together and I hope they stay together for a long time.

  19. Franny says:

    I’m not going to rip on a man that says that he loves his wife and that she brings joy to his life. Its a lot better than what some men out there say and do.

    Plus if I had to deal with a 5 year old plus be in the public eye all the time, I would look just as tired/”robotic” as Kate does sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, the Scientology stuff is completely nuts, but they seem like good enough people that I can’t hate on them.

    • sweetcrabsalad says:

      Well said Franny.

    • jessie says:

      word, Franny. I totally understand the reactions that people have toward Tom and his family… there is a lot going on there.

      still, separating art from artist is kinda easy for me with him. he’s simply “good” in almost everything I’ve seen him in, and sometimes that’s all I need when I’m watching a movie.

  20. Marjalane says:

    Two things-

    “lovebombing”- hysterical

    and two- He really needs excellent lighting to look good. Some of those pics were not “amazing”.

  21. poopie says:

    I Threw up a little in my mouth just READING this ! all this awesome amazingness is just too much. i say the marriage is over soon because of all of the overkill gushing over katemeister.
    and he is soooo plastic looking. i never thought he was good looking. i still can’t stop staring at his face mole.

  22. Eve says:

    So…is “amazing” the new “hugging from behind”?

  23. Dani says:

    Never thought that they would have lasted this long.

  24. Gigi says:

    M:I-GP was bloody brilliant! Tom Cruise is the bomb! Awesome movie, awesome action hero, good for him and Brad Bird and the rest!

  25. dorothy says:

    Why does he always feel the need to ram his love for Katie down our throat. Sounds suspicious to me.

  26. Original Chloe says:

    “Amazing” is a word they both use too much.

  27. phlyfiremama says:

    There was this one really creepy photo that still gives me nightmares a couple of years ago~it had the Cruises, the Smiths, and the Beckhams all standing in it~they all had the exact same silhouette, the women had the exact same bob haircut, and their dresses were even all alike. All I could think of was the stepford wives…except they were the stepford celebrities~all interchangeable.

  28. JaneWonderfalls says:

    Yeah he says that now and in about 5-10 years she will be yesterday’s trash. Tom has always left his wives, Remember MiMi Roger’s, Nicole Kidman, said the same thing about them and look he’s in the arms of someone else. I never trust people who gush so much about their personal relationships. I feel it’s a cover and I think Tom Cruise is controlling…

  29. Hellen says:

    I can’t put my finger on exactly WHAT he has had done to his face – but he looks different structurally. I see he’s had his brows shaped, and the new haircut (always a tip-off to some facial freshening…) looks great, but – is it his lips? His cheekbones? Has he had his EARS done?? Help me, Xenu, I don’t know the answer!

    • Hmmm says:

      I’ve been puzzling endlessly about it too! I’m going with chin implant. I don’t know why, cuz it looks like his old chin, yet somehow stronger. He just looks more chiselled now.

  30. wunder says:

    He looks 100xs better now that he chopped off his Ashton scraggle.

  31. UKHels says:

    I think he’s looking the best he’s ever looked to be honest, even though he doesn’t really do it for me

    I like a lot of his film but the crazy ass scientology crap puts me right off

  32. skuddles says:

    Okay what’s with the overkill here Tommy? You’re trying way too hard lately to prove everything is peachy keen in your marriage. Is Katie threatening to divorce your creepy Xenu ass??

  33. The Original Mia says:

    When they gush, they just can’t do it realistically. Have to go freaking overboard, which pushes things into the unbelievable zone.

  34. Viv says:

    Suri without a coat? Again? What is it about this kid and no proper outer wear? Is this some kind of plan to prepare her to live with high-heeled Eskimos?

  35. Cali says:

    Okay Kaiser, I know you are not going to let this go, BUT I see not one sign that he has had plastic surgery. Do you not see ALL the lines in that man’s face lol His make-up is better at times and he has the resources to skin care products that most don’t which is why he can take care of himself and look a bit younger, but other than that I think the guy has good genes and looks really good for almost 50.

  36. Kate says:

    I agree with Cali, I don’t think he’s had surgery. I think he probably had a tightening facial immediately before the red carpet, that’s all.

    In terms of the way he gushes about his wives – I think it’s often a protective thing. He gushed about Nicole right up until when he served her with divorce papers. It’s just not his way to acknowledge the ups and downs of relationships, but to be relentlessly positive instead – at least, to the outside world.

    • Kimbob says:

      @Kate….I LOVE that phrase you just coined….”relentlessly positive”….oh, that is so wonderful. You really hit the nail ON THE HEAD W/A HAMMER! No better way to describe how BOTH of them drone on and on about each other…absolutely no better descrip!!!

  37. Lucy says:

    Katie has been looking more and more like she wants out of the contract…she looks miserable…I think the marriage will be over soon…

  38. Esmom says:

    I don’t know, I was all for mocking him and his lift shoes again…but by the time I got to the end of this post I suddenly felt really sorry for him. He is so “relentlessly positive,” as someone above said, and a successful actor, yet has become such a huge joke. Sad.

  39. LL says:

    I call BS on Suri sewing things. She’s freaking five.

  40. Mario says:

    Tom is so in love with Katie, he spent hours worshipping her penis before realizing he was in a gay men’s bath house and she was in another state.

  41. memphis says:

    Surgery or not, he’s looking pretty good for his age… and I may be the only one but I think they do love each other. I don’t know, *shrug* ..I just don’t get the captive, only for show vibe from them. They tend to go overboard ( especially Tom) but aside from the cray-cray religion I think they’re OK.

    I know Katie goes overboard with how “amazing” Suri is but really what mom doesn’t think their child hangs the moon?

  42. Callumna says:

    “I’m deeply, smolderingly, most hetero-ejaculatingly in love with Katie and don’t think she looks a full head taller than Tom Thumb.”

    Was that convincing? Yeah, cuz I can’t act for beans either.

  43. Hellen says:

    I have just looked through TONS of his photos, older and recent, and I think that maybe 1) he’s lost weight and that has tightened up his normally
    chipmunk-y face, and 2) he might have had a little Botox in his upper lip. Look how thin and immobile his upper lip is now – he used to show quite a bit of gum, even when smiling slightly.

  44. holly hobby says:

    Because in the past she passed off her creativity as being strictly her own ideas. See the horrible overpriced and blah Holmes & Yang collection.

    Re Suri – no one is “born” with dressing themselves. I guess if I had a closet full of tasteful designer wear, I would have an innate sense of style too.

  45. Amanda says:

    I must say, Tommy boy looks good in these pictures. The hair is a huge improvement.

  46. blouson says:

    Suri does NOT have amazing fashion sense. Refusing to wear jeans and eating penis gummy bears does NOT make you a designer. Good grief. She’s a fairly generic skinny kid that likes to wear nighties with ladybug slippers in public despite freezing weather.
