Katie Holmes Covers Glamour Magazine April 2009

Katie Holmes graces the April 2009 issue of Glamour in celebration of the magazine’s 70th anniversary. Check out some great interview snippets:

On being married Tom Cruise: “As a woman, you make the transition from being single to [being] a partner. I have a teammate.”

On being a mom to daughter Suri: “Becoming a mother has been the most amazing experience—in an instant you become strong. You have to be a little bit wiser; it’s the most important job you have in the world… We like to be together, so we use the house for our [business] meetings. [We] play Yahtzee, board games, Scrabble. We grill; have pool parties. We play ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and Suri is the Big Bad Wolf. [Tom] reads story books to Suri and we all laugh. When a good song comes on, he’ll break into dance. We’ll watch movies in bed—recently Madagascar and Cinderella, for Suri. We have a really good time.”

On her career: “Acting—I want to do it all. Bad girl, good girl, complicated girl. Aren’t we all complicated?”

On cooking: “I don’t really cook that much—eventually I will. I do make cupcakes. And [Tom] makes his pasta carbonara for me. He knows exactly how to do it: a pinch of this, a pinch of that. He has a recipe, but he also kind of [improvises] by himself. You have to do the egg at a certain time. He did it once when we were camping.”

Glamour‘s Icons issue with Katie on the cover hits newsstands Tuesday, March 10th. Check out the full cover story at

  • hmmm-ok

    She reminds me of a little girl pretending to be a grown up.

  • julie

    She’s beautiful. People are just jealous.

  • stellartes

    she looks refreshingly pretty here

  • NativeNYker

    She looks great on this cover… Hmmm….

  • ade

    She sounds like a little girl

  • Elsa

    Photoshop award for… Katie Holmes!
    and my god, this interview is soooooo boring


    She looks great!

  • loma

    blah, blah, blah

  • hppymonday

    Agree with comments tht she sounds like a little girl playing dress up.

  • boogie

    don’t care too much for Katie or Tom

    …however, she does look good in these photos!

  • geez

    Do her and Aniston study the same childdish babble playbook or something.

    Definitely two women who needs to grow up period.

  • marissa

    nothing special

  • lauri

    I don’t think she sounds like jen aniston. Jen is always using teenager phrases such as “like” and “uncool”. Katie sounds like a normal person.

  • kit

    Great analogy about Katie and Aniston. Both sound plastic.

  • katty

    Lauri, have you ever heard Katie speak? LOL. Um, um, um, um….

  • pop86

    All magazine photoshop so what the issue?

    Katie does look great.

    I do think she is overwhelmed by Tom’s personality.

  • hppymonday

    Tom knows exactly how to make carbonara. What the h*ll is that supposed to mean? She’s so small town.

  • Ha!

    Beautiful photos. She looks so much better when she’s smiling instead of trying to play vixen. I’m beginning to believe that they are genuinely happy together. Good for them.

  • dabu

    Gee what an amazing, awesome, magical interview with the Queen of Vapid.

  • Raphael

    Leave those two perfectly coherent women alone, #12.

  • eva

    blah blah blah Tom is great blah blah blah everything is awesome blah blah blah Tom is awesome. I could get this kind of depth from a puddle.

  • Lindsay

    Great photoshop! She actually has some color in her cheeks.

  • pr person

    Haven’t we all heard that “Tom makes carbonara” story before? The “I make cupcakes”? The “most amazing experience”? Blah, blah, blah,… this interview is nothing but old rehashed crappola.

  • teri

    she’s fabulous!

  • lalalala

    She’s afraid to open her soul so she sticks to safe stuff like cupcakes and pasta :)

  • arsta

    Nice photos. She is looking good again:

  • Raphael

    What else can she say #22 and #24? It’s the truth. Sorry that you’re not hearing what you want to hear, like tabloid crap about a difficult marriage, but that’s your problem.

  • Vic

    ACT? That’s what she wants to do? When is she going to actually try doing that?

  • B.

    nobody wants to hearabout a difficult marriage but she sounds fake here.. everybody could mention that.. but maybe she loves him and he loves her too.. i think she’s afraid of telling things about her personal life.. like real personal.. because 1 its none of our business.. and second.. i dont think te tom-clan likes that..

  • Vic

    Altogether now………………..PHOTOSHOP!

  • suzz

    She has a beautiful smile! The story of their business meetings sounds a bit lame, but whatever makes them happy.

  • riri

    is PIC NO 4 supposed to be SEXY??????? good job they cleaned those nasty looking STRECTH MARKS on her boobs, rocking the contact lens tho!!!!!!!! it’s Glamour mag, she’s total opposite, JUDGING BY THIS PICS more like SEVENTEEN MAG.

  • zzzz

    Very strange-the interview seems to be recycled, with exactly the same stories we’ve heard before. I have no idea why she is on the cover of any magazine since she isn’t starring in any interesting roles. There’s a plethora of very popular actresses in current TV and movies that we’d like to see. I agree that she comes across as a little girl playing dress-up and trying to talk the talk. Overall, a big, boring yawn for Glamour.

  • eva

    28. Who said anything about tabloid gossip? I don’t care about her marriage at all. She’s an actress, shouldn’t she have an angle on something other than cup cakes and how beautiful her dream world is? I’m not asking for a philosophy dissertation but pleeeease, how many times can one be intrigued or excited about her child and how awesome Katie world is? My 85 yr old grandmother should have a magazine cover and an interview if this is what qualifies as interesting.

  • Raphael

    What else can she say, 35? She has a great career and family life and she’s just reporting that when asked. Too bad it isn’t juicy enough for you but you can’t blame her for not deciding to become a hostage negotiator or mountain climber or whatever just so you can be entertained. Go read a John Grisham novel or that and skip her interviews. No one forced you to read them.

  • eva

    John Grisham? you underestimate me. I read what is on this blog and this is my opinion on this interview. May be it’s not her fault, may be the writers only care about these things but I am not going to stop saying that I am bored by what I read. Excuse me for believing that she might say something of value or at least entretaining but you’re right, on to better and deeper things.

  • growing tired of being mrs.

    Glamour probably rehashed an old article …From last year maybe.??
    Seeing the new pix of Katie and Suri Katie does not seem that interested in her anymore. Neither the other night with Tom. She did
    not like it when he tried to hold her arm. She just pushed it away.
    She seems a lot happier on her own in NYC. What happened lack of
    funds for her next movie.?

  • eliza

    She looks really lovely here. Great photos.
    The interview was interesting. It’s obvious that she was swept off her feet because of Tom’s screen persona. Wonder if the man she dreamed of marrying is really living up to her expectations. Fantasy is one thing, reality another. But then he can make a great carbonara.

    eva @ 03/02/2009 at 12:22 pm

    I don’t think she has anything interesting to say. Between scientology indoctrination, Tommy boy’s control issues etc. and her IQ which seems to be below average–she sticks to cupcakes and her usual words of amazing, etc. She truly comes across as an unintelligent, vapid, human being. Or a woman operating with half a brain. She actually sounds like Paris Hilton and her vapid “It’s hot” type comments which she endlessly spouts.
    The only difference is Paris isn’t married to Tom.

  • lola

    poor her, she’s always manipulated by tom,telling her what she has to say or do!

  • tom

    Who does she think she’s kidding? She plays Yahtzee and Scrabble with Suri?? Oops, I forgot– Scientologists are supposed to treat children just like adults…. But then, why is Suri (who will be 3 yrs in a month) still in diapers? Inconsistencies in Scientology!

    - Katie sounds like she’s not in reality in the interview. She adds irrelevant details and tries to hard to sound ‘normal’ because she knows everyone thinks she’s a zombie freak.

  • nora

    Why is she on the cover? She doesn’t have anything to promote except her private life. Oh yeah, that’s why she’s on the cover. So pathetic. All she does is give interviews talking about how supposedly great Tom Cruise and her life is. Girl, if you need to say it over and over again, it ain’t very convincing.

  • Jen

    I love the cover.. i think she looks pretty, I dont know why people are so against and negative towards her…

  • http://77 Stunning kate

    # 3 you got that right. She’s more beautiful then the smug Angelina! OMG what pics, she is stunning!! and refreshing, with NO sorrid tattoos….Posters on here, well, JP wackos, cannot let anyone else in their brains, to be beautiful…sick, or what?
    Katie is just a doll, and believe me, she and Tom are happy, anyone who says otherwise,is jealous, or of cause, a JP Wacko. Period. Cant’ wait to buy this issue..Boy, he upgraded from Kidman. Katie has the charm of Princess Diana, does she! And the mystery and style of Jackie O…what a combo.

  • t

    she looks at least 40 years old.

  • http://77 Stunning kate

    # 10, really? Isn’t all covers and magazine pic’s Photo Shoots, where a star gets more made up and done up to look georgeous? Compare these pic’s with the pic’s of Angie, in November issue of W…NO comparison…to quote a man on tv who couldn’t wait to buy it, “A Hot Mess”….indeed.
    Katie is stunning, end of story, Haters! (And photoshopped, yeah yeah, she’s a beauty, get real!!!)

  • http://77 Stunning kate

    # 12 Sorry,,,, But we all can’t be the perfect hot smug mess of angie, now can we?? nahh. jerks! The negative comments are pure hate, coming from most likely homely obese women..LOL…Oh yes, because kate looks like a 10 on this cover, she’s a beauty. get real!

  • itstrueagain

    I think Katie Holmes should marry the present “Bachelor” and they can ‘amaze’ each other to death.

  • talia

    This is a woman that has an amazing soul and knows her priorities.
    Few trolls are outnumbered by her manya admirers.
    Its sad to be jealous. The trolls are really soooo jealous.
