Tom is currently promoting War of the Worlds, while Katie stars in Batman Begins reports BBC online.

Speaking about the claims at the European premiere of his new film in Berlin Tom said: "I have to laugh. It's just ridiculous. Something magnificent has happened to me and something extraordinary, and I'm so happy I just can't restrain myself."

War of the Worlds is a contemporary version of the H.G. Well's radio classic in which Martians come to earth to destroy the human race.

Cruise takes the lead role in the film directed by Steven Spielberg.
