Holmes approves of Radcliffe poking fun at Cruise's sofa hopping

August 20, 2011 - Washington

Katie Holmes has personally approved a Daniel Radcliffe gag in his hit Broadway musical 'How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying' that pokes fun at her husband Tom Cruise.

The 'Harry Potter' star bounced up and down on a sofa as he declared his love for a co-star in the production - just like Cruise did when he was trying to describe his feelings for Holmes at the start of their romance on Oprah Winfrey's talk show.

Radcliffe has made no secret of the fact the theatre moment is a dig at the 'Mission: Impossible' star - and he was relieved when the movie star's wife told him she got the joke and thought it was funny.

"It is a Tom Cruise moment, jumping up and down on the sofa. That was one of the jokes that I can say, 'That was mine'," Contactmusic quoted him as telling US TV show 'Access Hollywood Live'.

"It's totally anachronistic and wrong for the period, but I really didn't care. It made me laugh in rehearsals.

"Katie Holmes has since seen the show and actually commented and particularly liked that joke.

"I got very very paranoid that night because she was in the audience and I did it and the audience reaction wasn't nearly as much as it normally is (sic)," he added.
