"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," Katie says in the new issue of Glamour magazine.

And Katie says marrying the biggest movie star in the world wasn't as overwhelming as you might think.

"From an early age I knew that I wanted to be in this business. So I did everything I could to get here, and when I met Tom, I knew in an instant that we were going to be together, that we were going to get married. He does have a very big life. And you know, we just do it. And, as a woman, you make that transition from being single to [being] a partner. I have a teammate, and it’s like, we’re going to make this work," Katie said.

But forget about Tom controlling her, despite their 16 year age difference.

"[The age difference] was never a concern. I know one would think, Now, how is that? But really, we both like to work, we both like our families. It’s being there, being supportive, being an ear. It’s not so much, 'Do you think I should do this?' It’s 'What do you think of it?'

However, fame does have a downside for Katie. She says the rumors about her relationship with Tom and her daughter Suri were "not OK."

"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."

Katie says Tom helps her deal with the media scrutiny.

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!'"

She also denies the rumors that Suri may soon be welcoming a baby brother or sister in the near future.

"I'm not pregnant right now," Katie says.
