Katie Holmes NYT

In the NY Times piece on Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Cruise said that he “knew I wanted to marry Kate when I met her.” Katie Holmes sort of shared the same sentiment admitting before that it was her dream as a little girl to become Tom Cruise’s brainwashed indentured servant, er, wife (?). In fact, Cruise was so convinced they were destined to be together that he bought an engagement ring after their first date. Creepy.

“At one point, I thought she was going to ask me to marry her first and I put her off by changing the subject,” Cruise adds. “I wanted to ask her.”

Tom Cruise must have been pretty charming to pull that off or he must have spent a lot of money to hold Katie’s family hostage. I bet their first date went something like this:

Tom hands phone to Katie over the dinner table

Katie: (Smiling) Hello? Who is this?

Cat meows over the phone

Katie: Kitty?! (Jubilation turns into fear)
Tom
: Yes. Kitty. Now, you will be wise to answer “yes” to what I have to say next.

Tom gets on one knee and proposes
