Kidman Warns Cruise and Holmes About Publicity Stunts

Jun 08, 2005 | 7:21am EDT

Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman has warned her ex-husband Tom Cruise to avoid photographic publicity stunts with his new girlfriend Katie Holmes because it makes their romance look fake.

Polls in magazines People and Us Weekly show a majority of both publications' readers are skeptical about the sincerity of the Hollywood couple's relationship, because both Cruise and Holmes have films released this month--Cruise stars in War of the Worlds, while Holmes is in Batman Begins.

And Kidman fears the new couple's carefully prepared photo opportunities are doing nothing to convince cynics their relationship is real.

She tells Vanity Fair, "In terms of your life, if you start to exploit it, then what's real, and what's not? What's yours, and what isn't?"

Kidman and Cruise ended their 10-year marriage in 2001.

Meanwhile, Holmes has prompted rumors she and new boyfriend Cruise are planning to marry--after refusing to rule out a wedding.

The pair have only been dating since April, but have already professed their love on national TV--Cruise famously atop talk show queen Oprah Winfrey's sofa.

And Holmes won't deny increasing reports they are actually engaged. When quizzed, she says, "Look I can't lie. We have to talk about that, Tom and I. But it just makes me smile when you ask about that.

"I'm so happy. I'm thrilled. I'm so in love with Tom and that's all I care about. He's just the most amazing man in the whole world."

And of Cruise's bizarre appearance of Winfrey's show, she adds, "I sat there and I was, like, I'm the luckiest woman in the whole world."
