The close friendship between Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham has Tom Cruise worried about his wife’s susceptibility to peer pressure. The Daily Mail reports the “Mission Impossible” star wants Katie to put her Posh ambitions on hold.

“Katie sees Victoria as a role model,” a source told the paper. “She copies Victoria's look and even cut her hair the same way.”

But it’s not Katie’s borrowed fashion sense that’s left her hubby concerned. Allegedly, Tom’s real worry is a weighty one, as he watches Katie follow Posh’s petit lead by dropping the pounds.

“She is very thin, largely because she is following Victoria's strict 900-calories-a-day eating plan,” the snitch revealed. “She is copying Victoria's fad of eating seaweed shakes, frozen grapes and edamame beans. She is tiny.”

Katie’s getting a reputation for micro-munches . Recently, a fellow diner gave Life & Style magazine a rundown of her light lunch at L.A.’s Osteria Mozza. “She had only steamed asparagus as an appetizer, then a tiny plate of chilled beets for her entrée.” The onlooker added, “She seemed a bit hungry, actually. Poor thing!”

Britney tells Kevin she’s sorry
As part of her plan to get her life back on track, Britney Spears is issuing apologies to those she hurt when she spiraled out of control. According to Star, among the notes of regret the singer’s written so far is one special message to her ex-husband, Kevin Federline.

Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings “Britney is taking steps to rectify all the wrongs she has done in her life,” a family insider revealed to the magazine. “She’s trying to clean up the wreckage of her past and reconciling with Kevin is a big part of that.”

In an eight-page letter to K-Fed detailing her transgressions, Brit purportedly admits her shortcomings as a wife and mother, explains how she wants to “move on to a healthier life” and even professes her love to the wannabe rapper.

“Since their face-to-face meeting on Easter, Britney has started confessing to Kevin how she feels about him,” Star’s insider said. “She says, ‘I love you,’ and she really seems to mean it.”

The source assured that everything is looking up for the troubled pop star. “She’s really doing so much better. Britney said she’s finally dealing with the issues that she was ignoring for so long and is getting over her anger.”

Dish on the fly
Veteran actor Jon Voight considers his daughter Angelina Jolie a hero. “People who raise children properly are heroes to me because it takes a lot of work,” Jon told Usmagazine.com. The 69-year-old knows all about the perils of parenthood, as he remains estranged from his famous offspring after publicly speculating about her “severe emotional problems” in 2002. … New dad Joel Madden found a way to ease his homesickness while on tour with his band, Good Charlotte. Though he misses Nicole Richie and their baby girl, Harlow, virtual play dates help keep the blues at bay. “They set up web cams,” a friend shared with In Touch. “Joel didn’t want to miss a day of Harlow’s life.”
