Katie Holmes' Harpers Bazaar Cover

Katie Holmes dishes it in the March 2007 issue of Harper’s Bazaar as photographed by Peter Lindbergh. Check for it on newsstands starting Feb. 20. Here are some choice excerpts from Katie‘s interview:

  • On how great life is: “I feel very lucky. I have a husband and children that I adore. I have a career that I really love. When I sit back and reflect, it’s – wow! I am very grateful. Tom makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world and has since the day I met him. I love being with him. I love calling him husband.”
  • On her first date with Tom: “Here in Los Angeles, my first motorcycle ride…to the beach. It was amazing and fast. I was in love from the moment that I shook his hand for the first time.”
  • On motherhood: “I felt so proud to be having a baby and so excited. And I felt closer to other women-to my sisters, to my mom. I felt empowered, like ‘I’ve given birth. I did it! There’s nothing I can’t handle… I’ve really enjoyed this time that I have taken to be with Suri as well as the challenges of the first couple of months: feeding and pumping, learning to decipher what each cry means-is she hungry? Is she tired? Does she need a fresh diaper? And figuring out how to really help her.”
  • On her career: “I have a whole new set of responsibilities. My work is very important to me. My family is very important to me. When I go to work, it will be the right thing, worth my time and worth my time away from my family.”

    I always thought Katie was pretty from the first time I watched Dawson’s Creek but then lately I was beginning to doubt myself….now looking at these pics, I’m back to thinking she’s pretty…………sort of :-p

  • niecy

    The closeup of her on the couch is the spitting image of Suri. Great pics. I hate to admit that I laugh my azz off at some of the crazy comments people make about her and her baby and Tom….but honestly, it’s such a shame to have to try to live a normal life and at the same time deal w/the public criticism of every move you make. I couldn’t stand it and I’m so glad to be in the “norm”.

  • Amy

    Glad to hear that she’s doing well. While Tom creeps me out a lot at times, I don’t believe he’s a bad person. And all that bullshit about Suri being an alien, etc. is just evil and hurtful to the family. Don’t know how long they’ll last, but hey, Katie’s a grown woman who is capable of making her own decisions. Tom seems controlling, but it’s not like he’s holding a gun to her head. Suri’s a real cute kid.

  • nadioz

    she look good ! i like the photoshoot.

  • pr person

    Ok… here goes….. First of all, she is mother to ONE and stepmother to two, they are not her children. Second of all why is she speaking about the first couple of months with Suri? In December the baby would be 8 months old, why not talk about crawling, playing, getting into things??? Katie also said “And figuring out how to really help her.” Figuring out how to really help her? ………..Help her do what?! She’s a baby, not much “helping” to do. That just sounds nuts.
    “My family is very important to me. When I go to work, it will be the right thing, worth my time and worth my time away from my family.” So… those trips to Paris to attend fashion shows… must be worth her time and time away from family. Pathetic.
    These articles just prove how strange she and her “Christ” like husband really are.

  • Kelly

    Wow…there is nothing special about these pictures. Posh clearly does not have a talent for styling. Much like Katie has trouble forming a coherent thought. It’s sad really, watching KH try to get her career back on track when she has no one to blame but herself for it sinking like a stone.

  • beyoncepits

    What a pyscho. I feel bad for her.

  • SAd KATIE

    Is it just me, she looks quite sad in most of the pics! Is this the photoshoot with 300 plus crew and personnel? Wow, a lot of them must be doing nothing, coz it aint special at all.

  • WTF

    Crazy as batshit.

  • John

    Katie looks stunning, really beautiful. Great job girls!
    Besides it’s nice to see sweet Katie back. She sounds so happy.

  • Anna

    love the pics…KAtie looks really beautiful..=D

  • Rox

    Interesting how these crazy bashers don’t even have anything coherent to say. The best you can do is “crazy as BATSHIT”. C’mon! My 5 year old nephew would have smarter words to post.

    She looks wonderful and seems quite happy.

  • Rachel

    She is so lovely and so beautiful. You go girl!!

  • Amy

    Turning down the most amazing superhero movie’s sequel for a Queen Latifah movie is NEVER “right”

  • the doc

    5 pr person and a few others, It is nice to see that we all read the same article.

    How much do you want to bet that Tom, along with the help of Katonics handlers personally wrote this “interview” and then PAID the mag to publish it.

    There is NO WAY anyone could possibly keep a straight face while interviewing someone spewing the kind of carp that Katonic supposedly said. LOL

  • MaryW

    you know I use to like her in dawson creek, tom kind of turns me off a bit .
    But what I will say in their defense the are both great parents, PR Person I haven’t
    seen a picture with the kids and Nicole since her wedding to keith Urban.
    Katie and Tom go to both the Kids soccer games, never see Nicole. Katie took
    Conner and Isabella to visit with kids at xmas and they seem very affectionate and real with Katie. So say what you will Tom and Katie are devoted to all 3 children and that says alot about Katie and Tom!

  • the one not fooled

    My god, this woman could have phoned these answers in from the scientology lobotomy lab. She’s giving Stepford wives a bad name. Everything is fine, life is wonderful, my life is a dream, what a bunch of PR BS! I mean, go pick through some old Nicole Kidman nterviews and I’m pretty sure you’ll find the same verbage. Oh well, this will all make for great Vanity fair fodder in about 5 years. She can tell us all about the pills that helped her to wake up, the ones to sleep, the pink ones to get her through B*llsh*t interviews, the attendants to watch her every move, etc, etc, etc.

    *******
    OH, but you’re wrong dear. Bella and Connor ARE her children too. She married their daddy, now they are her children too.
    The title “stepchildren” is not necessary for her to use.

    My husband never uses “stepchildren” when he talks about my children from my first marriage. He tells people ‘these my children’ when he introduces them to people.

  • rage

    could this be the one VB dressed her up for god if it is she should not be allowed to ever dress an animal let alone a human being, what is it with pout and poker face one would think with the hype she’s being on lately the photoshoot will be okay (not good) but this is nothing special just another photogragh on an average person anyday anytime what is with the stupid cheesy smile in the red coat she looks like a baby being groomed not vise vsersa but of course she is

  • http://www.justjared.com/2007/01/15/jennifer-lopez-golden-globes/#comments blue diamonds

    Katie is so pretty. I am so happy, she is happy with the hubby and their children.
    I wish them well.

  • Will

    Both are Fake!!

  • julie

    MaryW what a shallow minded human being you must be it amazes me this days when pple like talk about motherhood, it doesn’t take a couple of pics to be a mother get that for a fact stupid and when was the last time ur precious KH was seen with her baby(during the wedding twice ever not good enough for someone trying to brainwash you as what she is not) think b/4 you talk

    —————————————
    I think you are nitpicking in the extreme here. There’s nothing wrong with her thinking of Connor and Isabella as her kids.? I’m sure she knows Nicole is their mother (or maybe to you Nicole isn’t b/c they were gasp…ADOPTED!). Katie married Tom, and the kids obviously spend tons of time with them; she has motherly feelings toward them, big deal.

    And I see nothing wrong with her talking about the first few months with Suri. She’s a new mom afterall. Maybe that was the context when the question was asked. Should she only talk about Suri in the context of whatever happened the morning of the interview?

  • pr person

    Kim, you really don’t know what I think so you shouldn’t put words in my mouth, re: Nicole. I stated that “they are not her children”. How is that nitpicking? It is just stating a fact. So what if she married their “daddy”, so what if she spends tons of time with them, so what if she has motherly feelings toward them… so what? Good for Katie! That doesn’t make them HER children.

    “Should she only talk about Suri in the context of whatever happened the morning of the interview?” Maybe… Did Suri do something funny, crawl, make a funny noise, cry when Katie left… anything but past tense…. something that doesn’t sound rehearsed or planned out.

    Also , if you are going to quote, use the entire quote …. as I didn’t have “nuts” after the crawling, playing, ….

  • dean

    Hey pr person…..I don’t think MaryW, Kim or Denise “get it”.

    Suri is 1 yr old now and Katonic only refers to her first couple of months, HUH?

    She says she will leave her family for the right reasons,
    You mean like jetting off to Europe several times in the past year to see fashion shows, or to go to the local park to run through the grass for photo-ops with the gay midget, or the ENDLESS shoe shopping trips at Barneys. Are those right or wrong reasons to leave your family?

    This is SO staged! SO FAKE!

  • kmillz

    Pr person..you must be really lonely and depressed. It’s funny how you analyze everything she said and turned into something bad. It’s typical for a woman to hate on another woman who is doing better than her. The word psycho just jumped in my mind after reading your nonsense.

  • Janey

    HEY! Did anyone watch the clip of Diane Swayer and the Scientology handler posing as a magazine rep?

    She said that Katonic lost all of her baby weight by running! That katonic is a real outdoors, athlectic person. WHAT??????

    Does anyone remember the story that Tommy put out on how he hired a personal trainer and someone to watch “the kids” so KATE would have time to exercise?

    REMEMBER?????

    WHAT? MORE LIES???? DID HE REALLY HIRE A PERSONAL TRIANER?
    OR DID SHE RUN ON HER OWN TO LOSE THE BABY WEIGHT?

    Just more TOMKAT PROPAGANDA!

  • Nick

    Katie’s not really looking good on those pics.

    I’ve heard she’s been dumped from the Batman sequel.

  • anon

    She is just cute not beautiful.

  • MaryLee

    That last pic of her makes her look like a character out of Alice in Wonderland. However, perhaps that’s what they were going for—you know, a symoblic expression of her life?

  • Xen

    Common these photos don’t even portray who she is. It’s like she has lost all sense of herself….she was in love with Tom the moment she met him – really? Tom am sure is not a bad man but he is an insecure man! and Katie seems sweet but a tard meek and insecure. It’s ok to be in love but dont change and lose ur personality to fit your partners mold. Be you and be loved for you!

  • Posh_Fan

    *Rolls eyes* Give this girl a break. You hate her, fine. Stop wasting your time bashing her.

    She is a beautiful woman and seems very proud of her children and husband, nothing wrong with that. To the one above me who said newborns dont need any help….do you even have children or have been around children? Newborns are most needy and you dont know what they need and its quite hard to figure out if they are hungry, sleepy, in pain whatever. We havent even read the whole interview and there you are once again, bashing her off. Puhlease! And just because she didnt give birth to Connor and Bella and wasnt around when Tom and Nicole adopted them, doesnt make her any less of their mother then Nicole. She spends more time with them then Nicole does.

  • ceeusbeeus

    I don’t hate her. I just think the excerpts display a rather plastic person. One who thinks she is “sharing” but is actually saying nothing. I also think that there is a staged quality to the quotes. Furthermore, the photos with she, Tom and Tom/Nicole’s kids seem incredibly staged and photo-oped. Prior to this circus both Tom and Nicole took great pains to keep the kids out of public view – now we see them EVERYWHERE in som bizarre attempt to make like the Cleavers (or the Brady’s since that too was a blended family, and just as made up). So no, I don’t hate her, I don’t have enough energy to spend on her.

  • Christie

    why does she look constipated in every pic? Is she not allowed to smile…

  • Janey

    ceeusbeeus……you said it very well. When Bella and Conner belonged to Tom and Nicole, they did everything to keep their lives private. Now Tom parades them around to every photo-op available.

    Nicole continues to keep their private lives private. So much so that the general public assumes they are with tom more then they are with Nicole.
    Nicole respects her children.

    When Katonic has more children she can be proud of HER children. Like it or not she is NOT the mother to Bella and Conner. She has only been a step monster for a few months. Before that she was a paid shack up ho.

    Katonic doesn’t even spend time with her own daughter, how can you say she spends more time with someone elses?

    AND NO, she does NOT spend time with Suri, unless you call fashion shows in Paris and the show dept at Barney’s, SURI.

  • dean

    And for those sci-bots that insist that katonic spends a ton of time with HER kids and that HER kids come first….

    How come none of these photos include her MUCH LOVED CHILDREN????

    HUH?????

  • blogelina

    The look in her eyes is one of extreme sadness to me…..always. I watched some Dawson Creek just to check this out. Back then she was very cute with sparkly eyes… a happy person look. I no longer see that. Is she is just being serious Katie now, married to that thing and also a mother, or is it something else? Eyes don’t lie do they?

  • Mediterranean

    She looks somehow beautiful and definitely much better than she did before.

    This life is her own choise. Then we are left only with wishing her the best.

  • Mia

    Katie’s simply GORGEOUS!!!!!
    I don’t know what people are on while they look at these photos but she is just beautiful!
    I’m not a Katie fan.. left my fonds for her back in the Dawson’s days but you bashers need to pick on someone else… someone whose realy pathetic like Britney or Lindsy. Katie did nothing wrong to anyone- she just lives her life.. she doesn’t do drugs.. she isn’t an alchoholic or calling ppl names just beacuse they’re black/asian/jews. She didn’t kill anyone (Lane Garrison) or caught on sex tape (Paris and half of Hollywood), she didn’t still nobody’s husband (Angelina) and didn’t bashed ppl for their sex preference (Isiah Washington).

    So GET OFF HER BECK ALREADY!!!

  • gingeranny

    She looks great. There’s nothing wrong to have a nanny. Others have 5 nannies. Ther’s nothing wrong with doing exercises or running for a good shape.
    Others try it by starving themselfes almost to death.

  • anonymous

    Yes, there’s nothing wrong having a nanny for your baby, unless your PR people/interviews have tried to throw out the story that you’re a hands-on mother and you and your ‘man’ had a system where one would feed the baby and the other would burp and change the diaper.

    And if she had a nanny, then why not take nanny + baby to Barney’s and other places as well like other moms in Hollywood with nannies.

    Katie looks good compared to what we’ve seen of her 99% of the time the last year or two. But the photos are mediocre at best; her photoshoots from years gone by were a lot better. Check out Vogue and other previous issues of Harper’s Bazaar, Katie got the short end of the stick by letting Posh help with the shoot.

    You would also think that they could photoshop that sparkle back into her eyes that she used to have.

  • whorelina

    she’s cute but haute couture katie ain’t ever gonna be.

    This I would love to ask Angelina since years. Why do we never see your 5 nannies? Double standard?

  • Lisa

    katie went to max 3 fashion shows. she doesnt have to be with suri literally every minute. the only pictures posted on these sites are like the ones of the fashion shows so why would she bring a baby to a fashion show? it’s not like we see pictures every single day of her and she isn’t with suri. the few times there are pictures of her they are from an event or dinner with VB or shopping (its hard to shop with a child).

  • claire booth luce

    You got to wonder what is rebelling and hating, agreeable and loving in her controlled, micro-managed, brainwashed mind when she carefully poses for publicity and willingly makes so many goody-good statements, and seems unbothered by what we percieve as her wacky-alien life? Because she does know we see her as crazy and misguided. There is a normal limit to behaving in an agreeable and polite manner and of course, she has a right to her privacy, but then she steps out of her protected shell and is amazed we find her ingenuine.

    There is a yellow smile, in Arab culture, which is an ingenuine smile. A yellow smile is used when a person is concealing lack of interest, fear, or any emotion he wishes to keep hidden. It is sometimes used as a joke, by making a face of a crooked, ingenuine smile, when somebody tells a bad joke or is trying to make others laugh for something they do not find humorous enough.
    There is also a French expression “rire jaune” (“yellow laughter”) which could be translated into English as “mirthless laughter”, laughing without mirth, laughing when you don’t find the joke funny, or when the joke is directed at you.

    Katie looks beautiful in those pictures. Tom and Katie are a great couple.

    WHY YES! we have seen photos posted of her out EVERY SINGLE DAY without Suri.

    And at places such as the PARK!

    EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND we’d see these two wacko’s at the park for the “perfect family photo op”.

    What? Taking a toddler to a PARK is WRONG?
