Actress Katie Holmes has vowed to stay sane despite the increased level of media scrutiny she's been placed under since she began dating Tom Cruise in April (05).

The Batman BEGINS beauty, 26, credits her normal upbringing in Toledo, Ohio with giving her a down-to-earth attitude - and relies on her family to tell her when she's acting "Hollywood".

Holmes says, "My family always keep me in check. They've very supportive of my career.

"I call my parents when I get stressed out. They put it all in perspective for me.

"I go back to Toledo six or seven times a year. I had a very happy childhood. I grew up naive and sheltered, but I liked that."
