PARIS (AP) — Actor Tom Cruise said he and girlfriend Katie Holmes are engaged, after he popped the question early Friday morning at the Eiffel Tower. Cruise, speaking at a Paris news conference with Holmes, said: “Yes, I proposed to her.”
The couple often shared smiles and blushes as Cruise turned to look at her, with a massive diamond ring on her finger. “It was early this morning at the Eiffel Tower, so I haven’t slept at all,” he said. “Today is a magnificent day for me, I’m engaged to a magnificent woman.”
…While in Berlin two days ago, Cruise dismissed speculation by tabloid newspapers and celebrity gossip columns that their relationship is a stunt to promote their new movies. Holmes was in London earlier this week to promote her new film, “Batman Begins.”
She had also dismissed accusations that the couple had staged a relationship for publicity. Holmes said then that she was embracing Scientology — Cruise’s religion. The former star of television’s “Dawson’s Creek” grew up with a poster of Cruise on her bedroom wall and has said she grew up wanting to marry him.
Perhaps they’re both vapid enough to be a match made in heaven, goodness knows they’re both nuts enough…
