Katie Holmes wants to invite people who are rude about her family to dinner.
The 30-year-old actress, who has two-year-old daughter Suri with her husband Tom Cruise, insists people would retract their horrible remarks if they spent time in her home.
She said: “Sometimes I think I would say, ‘Why don’t you come over and have dinner? See what there is to see.’ ”
Katie admits she finds it hard when people spread rumours about Suri – shortly after she was born rumours circulated Katie’s pregnancy was an elaborate hoax and that Suri didn’t exist – and is determined to protect her daughter at all costs.
She told America’s Glamour magazine: “Some of the stuff people said was such absolutely horrible things to say about a child. It was so uncalled for and so disgusting. Enough is enough.
“Tom was supportive. We were changing diapers. He said, ‘I don’t want you to get upset.’ And I said, ‘Well, I am upset.’
“So we approached it together. But I definitely felt like – as a woman, as the mother of Suri – I want to handle this! My mom is very strong, and if anyone ever said anything about any of us, she would be, ‘Excuse me? That’s my family!’ ”
Katie – who has previously admitted she had a crush on Tom, 46, after she saw his 1986 movie ‘Top Gun’ – claims she always knew she would marry the star.
She said: “When ‘Top Gun’ came out, my sisters were like, ‘Oh, my God, ‘Top Gun’! Tom Cruise!’ And I very confidently said, ‘I’m going to marry him one day.’ It wasn’t like, ‘How do I get to Tom Cruise?’ It was just, ‘I think I’m going to marry him. Why not? He’ll like me. I’m fun.’ “
