What's date night like for Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise?

"Two years ago he took me up on his P-51 Mustang, a fighter plane from World War II. He painted the words, 'Kiss Me, Kate' on the side," Holmes says in the August issue of InStyle. "It feels like you're on a bike in the sky. I thought, I'm either going to spend this whole flight totally freaked out or realize this is pretty thrilling."

When you're married to one of the world's biggest movie stars, whom Holmes calls a "manly romantic," life is bound to be exciting but also challenging when it comes to balancing careers and family.





"In our family we have a policy: we make it work," she says. "We Skype, and we try not to go for a week without seeing each other. We're also very good at setting up camp wherever we go."

Wherever the couple goes, their 5-year-old daughter Suri is often in tow. The actress, who will next be seen in the horror film Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, credits her daughter with enriching her performances.

"My work has changed for the better," Holmes notes. "I have more to bring to a role."

While the recent rumors that Holmes was pregnant turned out to be untrue, the actress says she doesn't feel pressure to give Suri a sibling.

"We already have a very big family; a full household with cousins who are over a lot, and she has her friends," Holmes says. "My biggest thing is making sure she's fully taken care of and doing well."
