Tom Cruise set to take family on camping trip across the US
The Mirror - UK
Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise is all set to camp it up across America.
We can reveal that he will be turning his back on luxury hotels and five-star resorts to take wife Katie and daughter Suri on a no-frills trip in the US.
And Katie, 30, cant wait to dive into a tent with her husband who can cook up a spaghetti storm under the stars.
She said: We love the outdoors. Once when we were camping Tom made his pasta carbonara for me.
He knows exactly how to do it. A pinch of this, a pinch of that. He has a recipe, but he also kind of improvises by himself. You have to do the egg at a certain time.
It sounds yummy, though Katie admits that she probably wont be helping her 46-year-old husband at the stove.
I dont really cook that much, she said. Though I do make cupcakes. Tom and family will be off to bond with nature at the end of the month, when he finishes promoting his new movie "Valkyrie."
He was inspired by the great Brazilian outdoors while he was working down in South America earlier this year but, unsurprisingly, they wont be travelling completely alone.
An insider told us: Theyll be accompanied by a friend from the church of Scientology, as Tom never likes to be too far away from his religion. They will also have security camped down the road to keep any unwelcome people at bay.
Well, the smell of Toms carbonara will have people and wildlife flocking from miles around
They are certainly likely to cause a bit of a frenzy, agreed our source. But the whole point of them moving away from luxury holidays is to do things as a normal family.
Suri will be three next month and Tom and Katie want her to experience as much normality as possible.
Our source added: This is what Tom wants for Suri. He doesnt want her to miss out on the things he and Katie enjoyed as kids, just because she is growing up in the spotlight.
Sounds like Toms pitching it just right .
