It's probably pretty darn tough to get into trouble when you're constantly surrounded by bodyguards and minions, but that hasn't stopped rumblings that Katie Holmes is required to write down any and all misdeeds for husband Tom Cruise.
The London Daily Mail alleges that the lately devitalized-looking actress, 30, "resolves problems" with her comparatively Dorian Gray-like spouse, 46, by penning weekly "confessions," an exercise supposedly rooted in Scientology.
"Katie has to confess to something as minor as forgetting to tell him she has met with a friend," a snitch maintains to the paper. "If she commits a transgression against the moral code of their marriage, she has to tell Tom in writing, giving full details of the time and place and what happened."
But don't dust off those "Free Katie" signs just yet.
Turns out there's been no obligatory bean-spilling from Holmes, who recently told Glamour that she feels the best way to respond to tabloid chatter is by "enjoying life, making movies, being a good mom and a good wife."
When we contacted Cruise's rep for comment on the confession story, he assured us, "There is no truth to this claim."
Besides, even when Holmes is away from Cruise, she's only too happy to gush about her domestic bliss.
During some downtime while filming "The Extra Man" in Manhattan last week, Katie was overheard proudly -- if disjointedly -- ticking off daughter Suri's accomplishments, reports the New York Daily News.
"Look! [Suri] painted these canvas ballet slippers," a spy says she enthused while showing off a photo on her BlackBerry. "Isn't she the best? She'll be 3 soon. It's such a good age. She was in musical school this year, but starts real school next year."
Alas, the button-cute, be-banged (if trim-needing) tot left her hand-painted slippers at home and instead sported some kicky, leopard-print shoes as she and her parents set off a frenzy a few days back when they landed in Tokyo, the latest stop on Cruise's tireless promotional campaign for "Valkyrie."
