Cruise Talks Candidly About Past, Present and Future
April 11, 2006

From Katie to Nicole to the expectant baby on the way, Tom Cruise takes it all on in an incredibly candid interview with GQ.

GQ's Lucy Kaylin sat down with the world's biggest star, who told her he knew the second Katie was pregnant. "He just looked at her and he noticed something," Kaylin said. "He said to me, ‘I notice things about people.' And he said to her, ‘You're going to tell me you're pregnant, aren't you?'"

As for the much talked about Scientology practice of silent birth, Cruise told GQ, "It's really about respecting the woman. It's not about her not screaming."

Tom's thought was echoed by Kelly Preston at Monday night's CMT Awards. "Well, it's basically giving birth in the most quiet, serene, peaceful and loving environment as possible," she revealed.

So did Tom personally tell his ex-wife Nicole about Katie's pregnancy? After initially not commenting, Tom said, "It's not like anything I had or didn't have to do. I wish her well."

The star also touched on his now famous headline-grabbing prescription drug debate with Matt Lauer on the "Today" show. Kaylin revealed, "As he put it to me, he can get angry. And that wasn't angry; it was just an opportunity that he welcomed to share some information. He thought it was a wonderful interview."
