(Newser) – Tom Cruise is a “great parent” looking to build a 10-child brood, the effusive actor tells the Sun. Cruise, whose own father left when he was 12, doesn’t let the paparazzi get between him and parenting, saying, “I go to the children’s groups like other daddies.” And the 16-year age gap with wife Katie Holmes is irrelevant: “If I’m worried about anything, it’s if she can keep up with me.”

Cruise also discussed his disappointment that his controversial religion has gotten so much negative press and insisted he is done talking about it: “I say, ‘That’s it, no more—go to the Scientology website.’”
