Katie Holmes is Fierce and Focused

Katie Holmes is Fierce and Focused

Katie Holmes arrives at the Gerard Schoenfeld Theatre for her performance of All My Sons in New York City on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old has had to deal with anti-Scientology protests, however, and co-star John Lithgow has said that she has taken them in stride. He commented, “It (the protest) was much more disruptive to the other theaters on the street! Katie is lovely in the play, and she’s been such a sweetheart to work with. She has worked so hard – this is a tough, tough play. Katie is acting with thoroughbreds and she’s doing a wonderful job! She’s had to really push herself.”

10+ pictures inside of Katie Holmes staying fierce and focused…

    I love katie, and she can look good at times, but its hard to believe shes 29, she looks haggard.

  • son

    haha, she looks so old

  • bejeebus

    she looks like someone from a prozac commercial….
    she needs to call an emergency helpline asap….
    i may have to also after seeing these pix….
    i mean really

  • marilee

    I have a picture of my mother in that outfit, looks identical. However, my it was 19883 and my motehr was 46!

    Hideous, at least my mom was working at Walgreens.

  • fsfsf

    Poor katie she can`t Laugh at all . she looks so old

  • s

    she looks pregnant

  • http://www.demi-lovato.com vicky

    yea that’s what every1 thinks i came just to say KATIE LOOKZZZ REALLY OLD FOR HER AGEE…gwyneth looks younger than her and she’s 10 years OLDER

    but ppl already said that!

  • jD

    @#7- actually Gwyneth is about 5 yrs older, not 10…

  • Maria (Shorty)

    How come she’s got her mouth wide open when “Little Man” is around? Strange. Very Strange!!

  • NEEK

    I dont understand why everyone thinks she looks old because to me she doesnt look old at all. She looks her age if not younger.

  • dancer

    Jared really! Fierce and Focused? You need glasses or contacts. She looks like a mess. Her clothes look unkempt and dirty. With all her money and sci-minders you would think someone could wash these clothes and press them a bit. She could also afford to buy jeans that actually look good. These don’t fit right no matter what the style and they hug her legs which makes them look thicker than they are. Very unflattering.
    Fierce. I don’t think so. She is a pretty woman, but one would never give her a second glance in most of your threads if she wasn’t Mrs. Tom Cruise.
    WHy don’t you post some FIERCE talent and post pics of Lithgow and Weist. Now that would be FIERCE and FOCUSED.

  • Helena

    I hope they throw signs in her face until she realises!

  • aram

    Please, Katie, smile!

  • bejeebus

    NEEK,
    you must hang out with some scraggly @ss women. she’s only 29! she looks 39 at best! that’s not the way it’s supposed to work. plus, she’s rich to boot so she DEF has no excuse for looking like her grandmammy!

  • dancer

    I can see too since Tommy has left her she is back to being the bereft – no smiles, no expression, nothing.
    Is there a rule that she can’t smile, laugh or look happy if Tommy isn’t around?
    Jared PLEASE post pictures of other cast members too if you feel you must give this 29 going on 69 crone publicity.

  • Chloe

    I know doing a play is hard work , but she looks like she needs some serious down time. She just looks so tired and unhappy in these photos. I know everyone wants to be casual at times , but she just looks like she doesn’t care anymore.When I look at her photos from back in LA , you can hardly tell its the same woman. She looked so happy and full of light and life back then! She really needs Suri and Tom back around her, its the only time she really ever smiles.

    Come on Katie; you can do better, we have all seen it!

  • Heather

    She looks very tired and unhappy.

  • NEEK

    Bejeebus…
    NO lol & Im actually 37 & people think Im 18. So I look younger than Katie. But I dont understand why people thing she looks SO old… is it the clothes? I just dont think she looks that bad. I just started noticing her so maybe shes aged a lot in a short time that I havent noticed… maybe its just the stress from being a mom & being married to Tom cant help lol.

  • US voter

    She looks at least 35 or older.

  • huh?

    she looks like a before picture for the “Mammaw Needs a Makeover Show”

  • dancer

    Neek, it isn’t so much the individual pieces, but the way she puts things together. She is wearing a sweater that looks like an old lady sweater, a top that calls attention to her hips and makes them look wider. Her jeans hug her legs which aren’t her best asset. They don’t fit right. The glasses, to block people from looking at her eyes look like they are from the 60′s. Her hair looks like she just got up and jumped in the shower and washed it and let it lay whichever way. Her complexion in these pictures looks pale.
    So you put it all together and she looks messy, unkempt, like she is wearing dirty outdated clothes etc. That combined with her never smiling unless Tom is around-she just looks older than 29.
    NOW, that said, most of us probably have days where we throw on the first thing that is in our closet, jump out of the shower and air dry our hair and hit the door running. BUT we don’t have tons of millions of dollars that could actually pay someone to tell us what to wear, wash and iron it etc. She does.

    I SAY we have an intervention and CALL Stacy and Clinton on TLC’s WHAT NOT TO WEAR.

  • bejeebus

    NEEK,
    i didn’t say that YOU were old looking, i said that the women you interact with must be old looking. katie looks very old and haggard for her age…throw in her miserable expression and goodwill clothing choices and you have….well…the mess featured in the pictures above. i, myself, am 30 so i know what a woman of katie’s and my age should look like. let’s just say, if she and i were side by side….people would be calling her “bejeebus’s mom”.

  • Top Gun

    Paltry and Katie both look in their 40s.

  • bejeebus

    ….and p.s. i’m 30 and 8.5 months pregnant so i’m TOTALLY not at the top of my game by any means but i’ll tell you what…..she looks like complete roadkill in comparison to my prego @ss!

  • Lette

    I literally CANNOT recall the last time I saw Katie smile when she was NOT around tom or suri; i can’ t find any pics of her smiling at the public; it’s as though she smiles for tom’s benefit only

  • NEEK

    Bejeebus…
    I know you werent saying I was old looking but I also dont hang around old looking women. I guess I dont know what 29 is supposed to look like since I look a lot younger & so does everyone in my family… I dont know what any age is supposed to look like lol.

    I think Katies clothes are fine but agree some arent fitting right…Im not really a fan of this look. I also agree she could look better considering shes rich but I think we are all a bit to hard on these celebs (not you necessarily but in general) they are human… its nice to see them looking like crap from time to time lol.

  • bejeebus

    neek,
    well, i guess i hadn’t thought about it like that……her looking like cr@p is sort of like her giving a little gift to us (i would rather her send me a check though).
    but anyways…..thanks, katie! we appreciate you and your charitable efforts! thanks for being concerned about our self esteem and the many many MANY sacrifices you have made for it! LOL

  • groovy marcia

    why do celebrities always dress like homeless people? they have more money than i could ever imagine & yet they dress in ridiculous clothes. if i wore that out in public, i would probably be laughed at. everyone should check out katie’s blog at dontcallmejoey.blogspot.com
    there are some videos she made of herself-they are awesome. i think she shows herself in a totally different way that the public has never seen her. she talks about when THE CONTRACT IS UP- like she is referring to having a contract with tom cruise as in their marriage is a contract. thatsthe way i understood it. read all her blogs & watch the videos.you can also go to her mspace from her blog.
    i think she is a totally different person than people in the public perceive her to be.i think she seems to be alot stronger & smarter than people give her credit for. i think she is awesome! go katie!!

  • NEEK

    God Im glad Im not a celeb! LOL.

    On another note… its sad that shes not smiling. Maybe shes missing Suri or shes tired.

  • umm

    umm Groovy Marcia- the video is not really Katie. I hope you realize that~

  • Maria (Shorty)

    #25. I thought the exact same thing!! Maybe she’s not allowed to smile unless she’s with “Small Person”.

  • Maria (Shorty)

    Being in a live broadway play when you’re not used to it can be very draining. Many actors have said that it’s a very hard life, but they love it. This is Katie’s first time on Broadway and it must be killing her. I mean, you mess your lines and there’s no ‘cut’….you have to keep going. I’m not a fan of either her or ‘Small Person’, but it is what it is. Broadway is hard stuff.

    Does anyone know if “Small Person” is still in town? Did he take the little one back to Cali with him. If so, she must be missing her little one.

  • jennifer

    Why is she wearing a CROSS? When does she go to church since she became a member of the CULT of Scientology?
    Tom Cruise believes that L.Ron Hubbard is his God, so if he is Katie’s god now, too, why is she wearing a cross?
    She is a stupid woman for joining his CULT.

  • NEEK

    I wondered about the cross too. If shes with Tom doesnt she have to be in the cult too? Or does she actually get to have her own religious beliefs?

  • tom c

    She looks like a bag lady you see in on an average day in the supermarket.

  • jill

    _______________________

    Eh, I don’t know, I think she’s happy when the kid isn’t around. Suri was back in LA with “Small Person’ the last couple of weeks. Interesting that he swoops in with her, gets some publicity, then leaves with her. Makes one wonder.

    And if Katie is already drained, after less than a week of previews, how is she going to make it until mid-January?

  • bim

    d CROSS is just a just an act, notice she didn’t start wearing/displaying it publicly till after her stage appearance which is quiet obvious, won’t be surprise if it’s “SMALL MAN’S IDEA”

  • Dale

    That’s a cross? No…I don’t see it. A cross is longer at the bottom. Could it be an X? That would make more sense.

    *vomit*

  • Manny

    hideous dumb broad.

  • defap

    anti-Scientology protest is not anti-Katie.
    some warnings for a new thing are not all bad. I hope Katie does not take it personally. Katie is sweet, smart, and a good actress and person.

  • gina

    We all needed our daily dose of the old lady I guess.

  • Anon

    Does anyone know anything about that necklace she is wearing. It looks more like a plus sign than a Christian Cross. Is it a present from Tommy boy? Maybe it is really ‘X’ for Xenu!

  • sniffles

    I love Katie, but even I have to admit she’s looking a little old for her age. Has anyone noticed that she has been wearing that cross necklace more often? Is that part of scientology? I just want to see the woman happy again!

  • missy moo

    umm….how do you know the videos of katie holmes are not real? i heard of them on several other gossip websites as well. they were all abuz about them.
    her outfit is so hideous! what was katie thinking when she dressed hersef that day?

  • Rattlesnake

    same old same old who cares tired of seeing her everyday on here, same old boring photos

  • oops! lITHGOW WATCH YOUR BACK!

    Lithgow obviously does not consider dumb katie a professional. He says shes been a “sweetheart” to work with. Wow! What a slap in the face…it’s true that she’s not a professional but he could have been just a little less obvious.

    If that comment weren’t enough, Lithgow goes on to say:

    “She has worked so hard – this is a tough, tough play.” Translation: she’s not up to the part, she tries but she just doesn’t have the skill or experience;

    “Katie is acting with thoroughbreds and she’s doing a wonderful job! ”
    Translation: The rest of the cast is up to par, Katie is not.

    “She’s had to really push herself.” She’s not a good actress. She’s out of her league.

    Lithgow, you better sleep with one eye open cause the scientologists will be after your a*s. Your supposed to lie and say she deserves an Emmy and you, Weist and Wilson are not deserving to be on the same stage. LMAO!

    Love Lithgow….He hit one out of the park. Honestly is always the best policy. LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • boogie

    her pants and bottom half look like a male! ughh

    she’s probably not smiling because of the paparzz always hovering around like flies.

  • Barb

    Is that a cross she is wearing???

  • GOOD VICTORIA

    HEY DALE AND DANCER………..I believe her necklace IS a cross DALE, because I have one similar, that I bought at the Catholic Book Store here in my town…….There is no longer point of the cross, and it is a small one, ……….AGREED, some of the crosses had different length’s on them, but most were designed just like hers………DANCER……I agree that sometimes she can look unkept, and her clothes are really strange for her…….After archiving some past pictures of Katie in L.A., she was so different in posture and clothing design, and she looked her age ( or younger ), AND HAPPY…….I found so many pictures of her smiling and waving at the paparazz’s, and NOW, there is nothing!………..Still is strange to me that Tom stays at a different place with Suri……….BUT, Katie seems happy when Tom is in town……..Do not get that at all!……I would have thought Lithgow would be a little more enthusiastic about Katie, but it did not come across that way to me…..I got the feeling he was just being kind !!!……..I wonder if any show will be a sell out?
