Tom Cruise refuses help when buying his Christmas presents
The Hollywood actor - who has a five-year-old daughter, Suri, with actress wife Katie Holmes, as well as two adopted children, Isabella, 19, and 15-year-old Connor from his marriage to Nicole Kidman - likes all his gifts to be personal so would never send an assistant out to buy them.
He said: "We go out and get them. We go to the shops."
The `Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol` star says he and Katie love the holiday season and really enjoying decorating their house.
During an appearance on `The Jonathan Ross Show`, he said: "It`s huge. It`s my wife`s favourite time of year. Suri loves it. She loves decorating the tree and she`s very creative. She`ll create ornaments, so there`s lots of arts and crafts in the house. It`s fantastic."
Tom, 49, also revealed how he didn`t tell 33-year-old Katie about the stunts he had to perform in `Ghost Protocol` until he`d done them because he didn`t want to worry her.
He said: "It was pretty gruelling. We were there for eight or nine days. The first time I went off the building it took my breath away.
We say afterwards, but she knows me. She knows I do everything to make it as safe as possible."
