Part 2 Of Tom Cruise On Oprah

Here is more of Tom Cruise’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

ON BEING A SCIENTOLOGIST
Tom dodges Oprah’s question about whether he feels people negatively target him because of his Scientology involvement. "It's a minority religion, and I think that sometimes people misinterpret [it]," he says. "I think the best thing is for people to read about it themselves. I believe people have the right to choose what they believe in.”

"The code of Scientologists says you respect the religious beliefs of others," Cruise adds. "That's part of being a Scientologist, and that's who I am as a person." In January, videos leaked online of Cruise at Scientology events discussing the religion. He says the footage "was stolen. I was receiving an award that evening for global literacy. It was a very private moment. I'm actually talking to my congregation. It's [taken] totally out of context.”

ON KEEPING SURI HIDDEN FOR SO LONG
Lots of rumors spread about their daughter, Suri, because the couple kept her hidden after she was born. Some blogs speculated that the child was deformed. That talk, Tom says, was "hard to hear. We just want to have our baby, have the kids and everyone get to know Suri, get the family up here and just chill and have that time that you never get back. You don't ever get those moments back."

On waiting three months to publish her photo in Vanity Fair in 2006, Cruise says, "Kate and I didn't feel any need to [rush] it. We said, 'Why? It's our family.' We just were on Suri time."

ON DAUGHTER SURI
"She's spectacular," he says. "She really is just magic."
His two children with ex Nicole Kidman, Connor and Isabella, "were really excited."

ON HIS MARRIAGE WITH HOLMES BEING FAKE
"That's laughable to me," Tom says. 'You just know that they're trying to sell it and spin it." He says Katie's Catholic family has welcomed him. "They're amazing. I love them," Tom says. "You see why Kate is such an amazing woman -- incredible integrity and strength. They're family."

ON RUMORS THAT HE HAS PUSHED NICOLE KIDMAN OUT OF THEIR KIDS' LIVES
"No, that's ridiculous," he says. "We share custody. That's what it is."
