The set of The Romantics was a love nest not just for the characters of the film, but for Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise as well! Katie’s co-star Josh Duhamel, who’s married to Fergie, says he “learned a lot from those two.”
At the premiere of The Romantics in NYC on Wednesday, Josh spoke to Access Hollywood about what it was like working with Katie.
In The Romantics, Tom (Josh) is engaged to Lila Hayes (Anna Paquin), but starts having feelings for his ex-girlfriend, Laura (Katie) who’s at the wedding.
“Katie – she was like mother hen on the set; she takes care of everybody,” Josh said of his co-star, who had equally nice things to say about him!
“It was wonderful working with him and we had so much fun creating these characters,” Katie said.
The co-stars even apparently share a kiss in the film, but Josh said he didn’t have to worry about what Tom would think.
“Well, luckily Tom is very professional,” Josh laughed, but Tom was on set a lot.
“He was there quite a bit,” he explained. “They set a good example for people. They spent a lot of time together, you know — make sure that they make time [for each other]… I learned a lot from those two.”
Katie and Tom kept close together at the red carpet premier of her film and even chatted about how they keep the romance alive.
“He always sends me red roses which I love, “Katie shared. “It makes me feel good.”
And she returns the sentiment. “I try to leave him cards and just let him know that I think he’s amazing,” she explained.
The Romantics hits theaters on Friday, Sept. 10.
