Hollywood hunk Tom Cruise has slammed reports he's considering marrying fiancee Katie Holmes near his American birthplace.

Speculation is rife in Skaneateles, a small town near Syracuse, that the War of the Worlds hunk is planning to marry Holmes in the idyllic Monet-inspired gardens of the luxurious Mirabeau Spa - a location frequented by a bevy of celebrities.

The spa - widely considered an ideal wedding location - sprawls across 12 acres of land, and boasts a heated foot-massage suite, herbal-infused steam rooms, fireplace-heated saunas, couples massage rooms and hydrotherapy pools.

A local resident says, "He was there four or five weeks ago with Katie Holmes. They discussed getting married in Skaneateles."

But a spokesperson for Cruise says, "To my knowledge, this information is not true."
