Suri Cruise knows exactly what she wants for Christmas.
"She's very organized and I start to, like, get a little bit of a panic because you cannot screw up talking to Santa," Katie told Ellen. "You cannot miss any item on that list because if you screw that up that's years and years of hearing about it. And then probably therapy."
And what kinds of things does Suri ask for?
"She's practical, she's just very specific," Katie said. "'I want a puppy and then I want a pink collar that has sparkles on it that says the puppy's name. Then I want shoes for the dog.' ... 'Then I want a purple clip.' Like, it's all very detailed."
Katie, who said she splits her time with Suri between New York and Los Angeles, of course didn't mention Suri's father Tom Cruise. Though the noted Scientologist may feel uneasy with the recent news that HBO is planning to air a documentary about the controversial religion and its Hollywood connections.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar winner Alex Gibney is coming out with a "bombshell" Scientology film based on Lawrence Wright's 2013 book Going Clear: Scientology. Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief. The network is reportedly eyeing a 2015 airdate.
"I don't want that moment in my life to define me, to be who I am," Katie told People in October about her divorce from Cruise. "I don't want that to be what I'm known as. I was an actor before, an actor during and an actor now."
