Katie’s Dad Says He’s Crazy About Tom

In an effort to dispel any gossip to the contrary, Katie Holmes’ dad stated his approval for his daughter’s new husband at their rehearsal dinner. Hollywood.com has the details:

The lawyer praised Cruise’s emotional openness and said he was pleased to be entrusting his “little girl” to “the right guy” during his speech at the 17th century Villa Aurelia, near Rome. He gushed, “Tom expressed his love in many different ways–obviously he wanted the whole world to know how much he loved Katie. I like that. I respect men who are not afraid to show their true feelings. I respect Tom for the commitment he had made to provide happiness and love to Katie.”

Well, that could be true, or he could have thought that the “wacko marrying my daughter actually worships aliens” toast might have been the weaker choice for the occasion.
