This week, star of Batman Begins, Katie Holmes, answers the Getaway questionnaire.
Q: What's your favourite place to holiday and why?
A: That's a tough one. Umm … you know what, I like going back to Ohio because my family's there and when I have a block of time I love to go and see them. My parents have a pool and I have nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters, and that's amazing. That's a great holiday.
Q: What's your number one travel tip?
A: Pack extra underpants. I mean, honestly. That's not a very good … yeah, it's true.
Q: When you're packing, what's an item you never leave home without?
Q: Ultimate travel experience?
A: Umm … skydiving.
Q: Food. How important is it to your travel experiences?
A: Well, it's important. You know, I like to eat the cuisine of the place I'm in. We were just talking about Chicago cos we filmed Batman Begins, part of it, in Chicago. Great steaks and pizza and fudge in Chicago. Yes, lovely. Great junk food.
Q: What's the best meal you've ever had?
A: I had coconut cake last night and it was pretty good. I mean, seriously.
Q: Who are three people you'd like to be stranded with on a desert island?
A: (Laughs). Three people I'd like to be stranded with … ummm. Three people I'd like to be stranded with on a desert island … ummm … my man Tom. That's it. Forget the other two, huh? (Laughs).
Q: Tell us something about your character in Batman Begins.
A: She's not based on a character from the comic books, so it gave a lot of freedom in creating her. I really liked her when I read the role. She's a very strong woman, you know. She has a lot of integrity and really fights for what she believes in. She wants to take criminals off the street and stop corruption and she's a DA and it was fun to play such a tough strong woman. I like her. I like people like that.
