  • Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes living in fear after ‘death threats’

    Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are said to be living in fear after receiving death threats from an anti-Scientology group.

    Tom is reportedly so concerned that he’s alerted the FBI – and stepped up security for him and his family, wife Katie Holmes and their two-year-old daughter Suri.

    The couple now allegedly live at separate locations and drive around in bomb-proof vehicles.

    The actor also seems to have provoked a not altogether positive reaction with his portrayal of Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg – who was at the centre of the 1944 plot by Nazi officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler – in the film Valkyrie.

    Cruise attended its LA premiere last week, which was targeted by protesters from the anti-Scientology group Anonymous, and has since been forced to step up security.

    The star is due to fly to London for the UK premiere on 21 January, but a source told the Daily Mail: ‘Tom is terrified. He doesn’t feel safe anywhere.’

    It’s not the first time Cruise has been under attack: in August, threats were made to place anthrax in the air vents of his Los Angeles office, and he’s spent £5million on an underground bunker in the grounds of his estate in Colorado.

    Meanwhile, on a lighter note, Tom has revealed he’s after Brad and Angelina’s ‘biggest brood’ title, saying he’d like ten children.

    He told The Sun: ‘I want ten children. I love kids. I feel really fortunate to have the teenagers and a two and a half-year-old. It’s a great dynamic.’

    He also revealed the 16-year age gap between him and his ‘charming, beautiful’ wife Katie Holmes is not an issue, adding: ‘If I’m worried about anything, it’s if she can keep up with me. I’m very active.’
