Open Doors

"I think every person has it when they look at their bride," the actor told Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday at the Rome premiere of his new film Lions for Lambs. "That's something that I'll never forget."

And, despite the frenzy of fans and media surrounding the wedding, which took place at Odescalchi Castle in Lake Bracciano, Italy, Cruise said the day managed to remain "personal" for TomKat.

"It was very beautiful," he said. "As big as it was from the outside, it was a very personal experience and something obviously I'll never forget."

Tom also gave an update on the couple's 18-month-old daughter, Suri Cruise, saying, "She's just a real light and very happy, a very joyous child."

We do love that celebrity baby, and whether we fully understand Scientology or not, you can't deny that Tom and Katie have been good parents so far.

As for his love of Italy - particularly the cuisine - Cruise joked that his favorite Italian phrase is, "More pasta, more pasta, preferably with truffles."

Tom Cruise Quotes

I was feeling pressed in the interview with Matt Lauer. For me, my issue was really about child drugging. It's not like it is today, like people are really kind of openly talking about this.
