Katie Holmes talked about calming her nerves on her wedding day to Tom Cruise while promoting her new movie “The Romantics” at the Sundance Film Festival on Tuesday.

“When I got married I was of course nervous,” Holmes told reporters. “You want it to be perfect and in that moment it has to be. I didn’t want to not enjoy my own wedding, so I calmed myself down.”

Holmes, who grew up with several brothers and sisters in Ohio, said that she had lots of wedding experience prior to her big day.

“I’m from a very large family,” she said. “So during my childhood I would attend a wedding probably once a month. Weddings and funerals, that’s what I did as a kid.”

“The Romantics” is the story of seven friends who reunite for the wedding of their two friends. Problems arise when a long-standing rivalry over the groom emerges between the bride and maid of honor. Anna Paquin plays the bride and Holmes is her maid of honor.
