Tom on Katie Holmes: 'I Love This Woman'

It's the real thing for Tom Cruise as far as Katie Holmes is concerned.

"I love this woman. She's magnificent," Cruise tells TV's Access Hollywood in an interview not scheduled to air until next Monday.

Asked by the show's anchor, Billy Bush, why the normally very private Cruise is suddenly trumpeting his love for Holmes, the actor replies: "I've got to tell you something, I'm not going to hide it. I am so happy, and I am not going to pretend or hide it or be shy. This woman is magnificent. I'm having the best time, Billy, and I'm really, really happy and I can't contain it."

According to the comments made available by Access on Thursday, Cruise also reveals that he and Holmes share common interests, saying: "We go scuba diving together. … She likes all the stuff that I love to do, she's funny and smart. I was looking at her (like), 'Man, you are so cool.'"

As for how the two hooked up in the first place, Cruise says: "I've always seen how talented she was. I've seen her in films, and I've seen Dawson's Creek. I've seen her work and you go, 'Man, that girl is really talented.'"

On April 28 PEOPLE reported that Cruise, 42, and Holmes, 26, "have been dating a couple of weeks," a friend of the actor's told the magazine.

The romance was confirmed by Cruise's rep after he and Holmes were photographed together, hand in hand, in Rome that week.

"She's the real deal," said the friend. Another source said it was Cruise who made the first move: "He asked her out on a date."

Cruise split with girlfriend Penelope Cruz last year. He and Nicole Kidman, who have two adopted children, divorced in 2001.

Holmes and actor Chris Klein broke off their engagement in March.

Both Holmes and Cruise have big movies opening this summer. Hers is Batman Begins, and his is Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds.
