Can't you just feel it?



I remember this moment (it was early yesterday, after my super-romantic proposal in Paris), and even now, it's still hard to get past the joy I feel for her, and which she feels for me. I mean -- if anyone had told me eight weeks ago that I'd meet, date, fall in like with, and propose to the girl of my dreams, I wouldn't have believed it! But it's happened, and I guess this is just proof that if you keep your heart open after ten years of marriage, you can fall in love all over again -- especially if you've got a blockbuster on the way!

So yesterday, after we were done with all the press conferences we'd scheduled and the promotions and signing stuff, Katie and I just sat together in a hotel (we didn't do anything, silly!) and I asked her, far away from any cameras or reporters or publicists, how she felt about the engagement. Mind you I didn't doubt her for a second, but being a gentleman, I wanted to make sure she didn't feel we were rushing into it or anything. I mean, she still had the tan line from her last engagement ring! Well, I looked deeply into her eyes, and I asked her,

"Katie, do you really want this? Do you really want to be my wife?"

...and do you know what she said?

"Tom, I'm just...so...in love!"

I flashed my toothy grin at her, and we hugged. It was so special. It was just like that episode where Dawson asked Joey to tell him how she felt about him, except Dawson wasn't sixteen years older than Joey. That doesn't matter though; I know exactly how he felt. It's amazing -- Joey didn't make eye contact with Dawson in that scene, and Katie still has trouble looking into my eyes when she tells me she loves me! I think this is how the French say it, that life imitates art (or is the other way around?) But either way, I know Katie would never lie to me (or to the Church of Scientology) about how she felt, so I felt so much better afterward. I even vowed never to jump on a piece of American-made furniture again -- I've already proved my manhood to Katie in movies such as Top Gun, The Last Samurai, and Vanilla Sky.

After we hugged, we went out to dinner, and talked about her handlers, and my handlers, and we boned bonded. Before we started doing everything together, Katie's publicist had told me that she liked to run three or four times a week to clear her head. Nowadays, we just go to Scientology meetings. They're so much faster. She told me that her favorite film when she was younger was My Best Friend's Wedding (I told her Nicole's had been Sleeping with the Enemy), and then we started talking about potential wedding dates. I don't want to say too much about it right now, except that War of the Worlds won't be the only thing opening on June 28th, if you know what I mean, hehe! (don't tell Katie I said that -- she'd blush!). For now, you'll have to wait and see (Batman Begins, because Katie's in it!). I'd say more, but if you'll excuse me, there's a couch in the lounge that needs breaking in.

We can't handle the truth!

P.S,
I thought of all of those myself!

P.P.S,
Well, not all of them. Katie helped me with the first three. That's what couples do!

Letterman, you meanie!

Hi everyone! Long time no see! I actually wasn't going to post again until next week, so I could devote all of my spare time to wooing Katie, but a dear friend of mine just showed me a video of Katie on Letterman last week. Dave, how could you? First you go about asking her all of these extremely private questions like "where did you meet?" and "when did you meet?", but then, as if that wasn't enough, you started making her feel uncomfortable about being half an inch taller than me!! You know what Dave? Height doesn't matter! Neither does size -- do you think Nicole would have stayed with me for so long if she had been uncomfortable with my unique height? Of course not! We had two wonderful children together, and we made an awesome movie too, where I must have been really exposed or something, because I'm still getting fan mail from a lot of guys who loved my acting in that film. It warms my heart to know how much all of you still care. But you know what an even better way to show you care? Go watch Mr. and Mrs. Smith! Wait, no, no -- go watch War of the Worlds and Batman Beyonds! I thnk that's what it's called. Sorry for confusing it in my last entry, Kate. Oh, I call her Kate beceause she's sooo mature, yet sooo young! It's unbelievable! That silly Dawson kid might have made out with her on that show she did, but I'm going to find out what the real thing's like, as soon as we tie the nuts...I mean, knot!

All I have to say, David J Letterman, is that Katie and I are very much in love, and it doesn't matter if/when/why/where we met, and it doesn't matter why Katie doesn't seem to be able to remember how we came together, or why she told that stupid dolphin story (which, to be honest with you, didn't make any sense to us, either) -- all that matters is that we are so deeply, truly in love with each other, and it's so important, because love only comes around once in a lifetime, no matter how many times you've been married or engaged in the past. None of that matters anymore, because I've finally found someone willing to go all the way with me, in more ways than one (hehe!). Seriously though, Katie's really into Scientology, as I might have mentioned in an interview (or two, or three) before. I mean, she digs it, you know? I truly believe that for two people to be together, they both have to believe in Scientology, or else, it's just going to be a publicity stunt, no matter how much they smile and force themselves to kiss each other. That's what I believe.

Oh, but this is why I really wanted to post (apart from telling off Dave, and reminding you to see War of the Worlds, and Batman and Katie): Keri Russell is going to be my leading lady in Mission Impossible 3! Yes, it's true! My agent just told me this morning, and I didn't believe him, but then I went to Yahoo! and there was a story about it, so it has to be true! I don't know what happened to Lindsay Lohan; she was supposed to be a character in the movie (though I think Scarlett Johannson would have been the main woman in the film, and not Lindsay), but now it seems that Lindsay's been kicked out of the movie. I don't know why. Katie thinks it's because she changed her hair color. I kind of agree with her. It's like that story in the heathenbible, where that guy was really strong, and really handsome, but then he got his hair cut by the woman he thought he loved, and he lost all his handsome muscles, and then he was no longer buff and strong and stuff. I think his name was Simpson or Sampson or something. Anyway, I hope Katie doesn't try anything like that with me -- that's why we're converting her to Scientology, just to be on the safe side. I mean, my handsome looks aren't just due to my hair, as you undoubtedly know, but there's no point in taking unnecessary risks. But as I was saying, Lindsay's no longer in the movie (plus she's got that weird skinny thing going on -- I keep on leaving messages on her answering machine, telling her to stop using drugs and start using vitamins, but she hasn't called me back yet), but I'm looking forward to watching/working with Keri. I sort of have this thing for WB babes.

Oh -- and you'll be hearing a lot about this today -- I proposed to Katie at the Eiffel Tower. It was so cool; there were so many cameras, and Kate couldn't stop smiling. I think this must be what true love feels like!

Well, tata for now, I've got to go do an interview, and save some kids from a burning submarine!
