Cruise proposes to actress Holmes at Eiffel Tower

By Joanna Partridge

PARIS (Reuters) - Film star Tom Cruise has asked girlfriend Katie Holmes to marry him, he announced on Friday, ending weeks of speculation over whether Hollywood's hottest couple would wed.

Appearing with Holmes at a Paris news conference, the 42-year-old explained how he had chosen the Eiffel Tower in the city of romance to make his move.

"Yes I proposed to Kate last night ... because it is very beautiful and romantic here," Cruise said, clarifying later that the engagement had actually begun in the early hours of Friday.

Smiling and exchanging glances with Holmes, who was sitting in the audience, he added: "I haven't slept all night. It's very exciting and very beautiful."

Cruise, one of Hollywood's most powerful personalities, was in Paris to promote his latest blockbuster, Steven Spielberg's "War of the Worlds".

Holmes, 26, has also been trotting the globe in recent days for her film "Batman Begins".

"So happy," Holmes told Reuters after the conference, when asked how she was feeling. She was sporting a large engagement ring.

INTENSE SPOTLIGHT

Media attention on the couple has been intense since they revealed their relationship in April, and both have been prepared to discuss it openly in interviews and on red carpets.

That openness has even led to speculation that the relationship was a stunt to promote their movies, a notion that both have been swift to dismiss.

There has also been some controversy over Holmes embracing Scientology, the religion Cruise practises which was founded by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard.

Cruise has been married twice before, to Mimi Rogers and later to Nicole Kidman, with whom he adopted two children.

Cruise and Kidman were together for around 10 years until they split in 2001, since when the "Mission: Impossible" heartthrob has had a relationship with actress Penelope Cruz.

He hit the movie big time with "Top Gun". The actor has since starred in a series of top-grossing films and reports say he regularly commands fees of over $20 million per movie.

Cruise has been nominated for two best actor Academy Awards, in "Born on the Fourth of July" and "Jerry Maguire", and one best supporting actor Oscar in "Magnolia".

Holmes, who has been dragged from relative obscurity by her attachment to Cruise, was previously engaged to actor Chris Klein.


Lucky guy! She's HOT. :verycool:

That guy isn't right in the head. Any man that would give up a tall, pretty redhead like Nicole Kidman should have his freakin head examined. What is scientology anyway?

B*tchy tall, diva red-head vs. humble, sweet 26 year old brunette. Hmmm... I'd go the same way as Tommy did :)

And ya, the religion thing is screwed up.

It's where you believe that aliens created the earth and that you have aliens crawling over you, and you pay more and more money to be cleansed!

Load of Obllocks if you ask me!

Watched the 2005 MTV Movie Awards a few days ago. They presented an award together, but I had no clue they were even dating. She had her hair curly - I prefer the Dawson's Creek look - not that I ever watched that silly show :)

Dawson's Creek God I think that I would rather watch snails race or paint dry. Maybe you should write for halmark.

I didn't know Nicole Kidman was a B@tch. I just love redheads with long legs. I could only dream of chance to climb them.

I think the whole thing is creepy and the scientology crap just freaks me out, Ron L. Hubbard was a strange strange man in my opinion. I really admire Cruise's acting, in some cases he does a great job, like Magnolia, or 4th of July, but as per his personal life.....Someday I expect something like a Solar Temple type incident from an off-shoot of this religion, that's how out there I think some of the followers are.

Blasphemy ! Who's the nong journalist who said Cruise dragged Katie Holmes out of obscurity ? Crissakes, she's starring in Batman. I just can't believe she'd fall for a pea-brain like Cruise.

Katie ! Think about what you're doing ! Stop ! Come back to us, please ! Don't do it !
