Katie Holmes is not who you think she is.
Well, that's what she's telling T: The New York Times Style Magazine, anyway.
"There's a misperception about me that I just became this wallflower, this woman who doesn't have any control of her life," Kate, who's only 29, says of herself since marrying Tom Cruise in 2006. "And that's pretty wrong. From the very beginning, I've made choices in my life that have been very strong. "
Kate does say that she was absolutely smitten with her hubby when they first met -- and that she had all those silly dreams we all had while watching Top Gun in the '80s.
"When I met Tom I was completely in love," she gushed. "And, yes, I admired him growing up - he's Tom Cruise! ... When I met him, he was so warm and I thought, Wow! You can be a superstar and a human being. He made me feel so amazing."
Tom, who was also interviewed for the same issue, said it was love at first sight for him, as well.
"I knew I wanted to marry Kate when I met her," he says. "After our very first date, I was sure. At one point, I thought she was going to ask me to marry her first and I cut her off by changing the subject. I wanted to ask her."
I kinds can't believe Katie would have asked him -- can you?
Anyway, little Joey Potter is all grown up, and says that she's got no regrets about the new world she's living in.
"My life has expanded. My family and friends are all part of this bigger life."
And as for the consistent talk that she's Tom's robot and under some kind of spell, Suri's mom says she just can't be bothered.
"I have too much to do," Katie, who is currently starring on Broadway in All My Sons, said. "I'm a mom and an actress with a play to do every night. I can't pay attention to all that noise."
Do you believe her?
