Caroline discusses what she calls “the craziness of Tom Cruise.” She begins by saying that she thinks Tom Cruise is not his real name, and that it’s actually “Zircon Six.” She goes on to say that Cruise wanted his wife, Katie Holmes, to deliver her baby without making a sound. “To deliver a baby in complete silence,” she says. “I believe that’s what Mission: Impossible is about.”
Caroline goes on to share what she would have told Cruise if she was Katie Holmes. “I would have said, OK, here’s the deal,” she says, “I will not make any noise during the delivery as long as I can hold your balls in my hand, and you are not allowed to make any noise either.” She then adds, “At the very end I would have screamed stuff like, Brooke Shields was right! You’re crazy!”
