Katie Holmes says she was absolutely horrified when her daughter, Suri, was photographed eating a bag of penis gummies on a New York shopping trip.
The actress insists it was a mix-up, telling talk show host Ellen DeGeneres:
"I took her to get ice cream in New York at this place called Serendipity that we go to all the time. It's for kids. The clientele is children. We go in and we are waiting for a table and she grabs some gummies that are boy-part gummies. I was horrified. I said, 'Oh wow, those aren't Swedish fish.' They are called P-E-n-i-s gummies and they look like it. She was holding the box and I was like, 'OK, wow we don't need that right now.' I thought, 'If I said put that back, then she's going to say, what is this? And I really didn't want to have that conversation.' I was like, 'Why are they selling these here? This is for kids.' And then it was on the cover of a magazine that I'm giving her those gummies."
Be sure to catch Katie's appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, set to air this Friday.
