Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 7, 2005
"A lot of journalists ask me if I want to marry Tom Cruise. Well, I wrote a book about him; it does not mean I want to marry him," says Niki Yan, the author of "My Love for You, Tom Cruise -- A Desperate Chinese Girl's Confession." "A woman definitely can appreciate a man at the purest level right? There got something simple like this. My love for Tom is something larger, it's appreciation and admiration, it's universal love. It's one human's expression to another."
When 50 plus journalists ask her what she feels about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' current relationship, Niki's answer is surprising. "I really think Tom is in love. And I am happy for him. I have great respect for both of them."
"Tom Cruise was my role model, he changed my life, and I've learned so much from him: being positive; being myself, and never been afraid of anything. Like he said: "Life is an adventure, and the adventure is how you make it. His courage and faith, love and compassion, determination and responsibility, had a big impact on my life. Spiritually he is positive and clear, emotionally he is kind and compassionate, brain and heart; what more can you ask from a human? He is truly amazing."
"You really can't ask more. He is already magnificent, just because the way he is, I admire him as an actor, I appreciate him as a human, even more. He is a truly legend, he is the most beautiful person I have ever seen. Not only because he effected my life, but also he is going to affect my life, the inspiration will go on forever, when it starts, it never stops."
Niki is not going to hide her true appreciation towards this Hollywood super star. "Tom plays the role of bridge in my life and in my book. The bridge between a small village with poverty and limitation and my ultimate dream with honor and success. This book is funny fun, also deep and insightful, I have no problem to show who I am, I wrote it with passion and unique vision."
The purpose of the book is nothing but sending positive messages. "I want to tell people we still have hope. We are miracles. We can do anything and everything we want to do. We are eternal, we are infinite. I can love, dream, and hope, you can too. You just have to allow yourself. Fear is the only obstacle to overcome. And it's Tom Cruise who taught me all that. In the book, I am expressing my own feeling about what it is true about Tom Cruise. I understand him perfectly."
Niki is also asked about Tom's couching jumping and ideas on psychiatry. "He is a truly hero; he has no problem to be himself. I healed my depression through exercise and positive thinking. And I am not even a Scientologist."
"This book is for everyone who has a dream. I want my story inspire everyone in this universe, I want it inspire you. We are not lack of negatives and disasters right now in this world, but we are lack of positive messages, inspirations, love and Hope. If everyone is positive and hopeful towards our own life and this planet earth we call home, then you can t image how beautiful our living life would be."
Many people who have had the pleasure of working with Niki say she is mature and wise for her age. Even so, she does not want get any extra attention just because of her young age. "Courage and talent are more important," she says.
She is still looking for the right publisher. "A lot of publishers are very interested. But I want to find the most enthusiastic one; I know it's going to be a bestseller."
Indeed, the poor girl who came from nothing is going to make miracles happen. She knows exactly what she wants. She is determined, intelligent and brave. She is beautiful inside and out, and she is going to keep fighting for her life for the best because she knew a simple truth from the very beginning: "I want to be Top Gun just like Tom Cruise."
She is flying high, and her love for Tom Cruise is one human's expression at the purest level.
