TELLURIDE , Colo., May 2 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor Tom Cruise said he thinks some of the things he has done and said have been misunderstood, while others have been blown out of proportion.

"Listen I, I feel like definitely things have been misunderstood, and there are things I could have done better," Usmagazine.com reported Cruise said in a segment of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" that aired Friday.

"But then there's also that world where you go, 'Oh, it's been spun to such an extent that ... that's a truth also,'" he said. "Knowing when and where to communicate, I think that's important. A lot of times I was nervous giving interviews. Or I wasn't sometimes as comfortable about things. And I realized that it's OK. There's stuff you have to just let go. I just have to do the best I can."

The actor called rumors that his marriage to Katie Holmes is a sham "laughable."

"You just know that they're trying to sell it and spin it," he said adding Holmes's family has accepted him as one of their own.

"They're amazing. I love them," Cruise said. "You see why Kate is such an amazing woman -- incredible integrity and strength. They're family."
