Katie Holmes was never sent flowers on Valentine's Day when she was growing up.

The 'Mad Money' actress, who is now married to Hollywood heartthrob Tom Cruise, always felt ignored by the opposite sex on the most romantic day of the year so she put all her effort into sending cards to her girlfriends.

Katie is quoted by Britain's New! Magazine as saying: "I like making a big deal out of a lot of things, so yes, I like to have a whole day of romance. I like surprises and I like sending Valentine's cards. I went to an all-girls high school and every Valentine's Day they would announce who had flowers waiting in the office. I got very used to the importance of giving other women Valentines because my name was never called - never! And I didn't have any money to send them to myself!"

The 29-year-old star, who has a 20-month-old daughter, Suri, with Tom, revealed her life is filled with romance since getting together with the 'Top Gun' star and the pair even have a favourite love song.

She said: "We like 'Unchained Melody'. I know that's kind of cheesy."
