On finding love again:
"I didn’t foresee it, that you can meet somebody who you have a deep and more profound love with. … I don’t mean to take away anything with Tom, but I would hope that he has the same thing — I know he has the same thing with Katie. You move into a stage where you’re able to be a more fuller person in your relationship. …
"I want to be really careful with that because I don’t want to take away from 11 years with that man that were really important. Really, for our kids — they were amidst a lot of love. It wasn’t bad. And now we’re amidst a more evolved love."
But she has no regrets. On whether she felt she got married too young to Tom Cruise:
"Would I want my kids to get married at that age? No! But that was an extraordinary thing for me. [Tom] taught me an enormous amount — as a girl into a woman.
Absolutely, I would do it again."
