Cruise ready to fall in love again



Despite some disappointments, Tom Cruise isn't giving up on love and marriage.

"I will never be down with love. Ever. I'm the guy who loves relationships. I love women," the 42-year-old actor was quoted as saying in London's Daily Mirror tabloid.

"I'm the guy who's going to get married again. I'm not going to give up on that. I really love that kind of friendship and intimacy," said Cruise, who split from his girlfriend, actress Penelope Cruz, earlier this year.

"I know I'll get married again one day. I know I'll meet someone sometime and I'll have another go at it."

Cruise's first two marriages, to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, ended in divorce.

The star of the new film Collateral said his ideal woman would share his love of adventurous pursuits.

"She has to have a great sense of humor and not mind having a little adventure in her life," he said. "I like riding motorcycles and flying airplanes, and I want someone who's going to enjoy doing the things I enjoy."

Cruise is still on friendly terms with Kidman and the pair share custody of their children Isabella, 12, and Conor, 9.

"The relationships I've had, I've found very fulfilling," he said.
