Did anyone read the Tom Cruise interview in Parade Magazine (found as an insert in the Sunday Los Angeles Times)? While we heard most of the Tom stuff before, i.e., how he studied at a seminary, how he had a troubled childhood and how he shares his home with Holmes and his younger sister and her kids, blah blah blah. There was one paragraph in the Dotson Rader penned-piece, however, that stood out among the rest:

“Before I left Cruise, he introduced me to Katie Holmes, who is about 5 foot 10 (he’s 5 foot 7) and pretty. She wore a large diamond engagement ring. She seemed dazed, passive and vacant. She never stopped smiling. The minute she appeared, Cruise’s now-familiar public mode of behavior returned. He began hooting how beautiful she was, touching and kissing her like a teenage boy on his first backseat date, aware that he was being watched.”

Hmm. “Passive?” “Vacant?” “Never stopped smiling?” It’s very Stepford Wives-ish. And just plain creepy.
