Katie Holmes: Preparing for Jackie Kennedy Role!

Katie Holmes looks summery as she picks up flowers in Hollywood on Tuesday (June 8).

The 31-year-old actress wore brand new sunglasses from Oliver Peoples for BALMAIN 2 – she’s the first celeb to wear the new shades!

Katie is preparing for her role as Jacqueline Kennedy in a new History Channel mini-series.

She was spotted carrying One Special Summer, an autobiographical book written by Jackie that features the First Lady’s drawings!

FYI: Katie is wearing The Shirt by JOE’s.

    Looking great Katie!

  • anon

    Hope she’s got receipts 4 d glasses/shoes/bags/dresses cos she might be needing some major refund once the GMD takes back his gold cards when their ‘marraige/contract’ lapses. He’s known to be stingy with his cash!!!

  • kizbit

    Everything about this makes me nauseous.

  • troi

    She is so unlike Jackie Kennedy that this casting is a travesty. If she was a good actress and could transcend her personality that would be one thing. But she lacks the skill to play this role in any believable capacity.

    Unlike Jackie she frequently looks unkempt, dirty and wears clothes that are totally unflattering to her body type.

    Unlike Jackie she flaunts her child out to the paps constantly. If Jackie O and Diana, Princess of Wales, could keep their children protected, surely one little twit like Katie with all of her financial and xenu resources could.

    Unlike Jackie, she comes off sounding like a moron with her over use of awesome, magickal and the like.

    Katie needs to go away as her 15 minutes of acting fame are over. BUT oh wait, she is married to the GMD which means he will never let her go away and until he is ready to dump her.

  • missy

    Love the heels in the first pic. Katie looks great. I can’t wait to hear more about this Kennedy project. I’m sure she’ll make a great Jackie!

  • MEDIA WHOORE

    because EVERYONE brings a book to buy flowers………..

  • missy

    @MEDIA WHOORE:

    What a moron you are. She’s not holding the book in the photos where she’s buying flowers. She’s holding the book in the first photo as she’s walking into a house, probably for a meeting. You can see that she’s wearing a different outfit. Look before you speak.

  • CASSIE

    LJ #1 AND missy # 5 —–YOU GUYS NEEED GLASSES, OR IS SOMEBODY . PAYING YOU? SWEET SWEET JESUS—–WHO WAS THE GENIUS THAT PICKED THIS D-LISTER TO PLAY THE MOST GLAMOROUS FIRST LADY OF OUR TIMES. JACKIE WOULD HAVE BEEN SO NSULTED IF SHE WAS STILL ALIVE TO KNOW THAT THIS UNKEPT-DIRTY HAIR WOMAN WOULD BE PLAYING HER. STUPIDITY GALORE.

  • Esj

    MAYBE TOM IS ONE OF THE PRODUCERS. I DON’T THINK SHE WOULD GET THE PART ON HER OWN.

    FIRST, SHE’S A DUD ACTRESS

    SECOND, SHE DOES NOT FIT THE ROLE.

    LOLZ, TRAVESTY IS NOT EVEN THE WORD…MOCKERY MAYBE.

  • LJ

    I wish I was getting paid to go on blogs, it would be a fantastic job. Unfortunately I’m not tho. I think Katie looks great. She looks happy, healthy and beautiful.

  • SCIENTOLOGYKILLS

    Why, God, Why?!! She’s do unfit for this role it’s not even funny. I hope she reads these comments so that she gets a clue that she’s not well received. I pray she budgets some of her Hermes shopping money and gets her teeth fixed. Instead of dancing lessons she ought to get some acting lessons.

  • snoozapalooza

    she’s so boring

  • LuckyL

    It’ll be like watching a caveman try to do ballet.

  • Soniaintown

    @LuckyL:
    Please do not insult caveman.

  • annie

    Obviously it makes you feel better about things to believe her husband buys her roles. As for the book , she was leaving the producers house. Katie looks great, love the sunglasses.
    And these pics are days old.

  • Cheyenne

    It’s kinda sad how so many of you pick on this woman and Jen Garner whose only vice is that of dressing and behaving like real moms. Save some of that criticism for those over processed painted celeb moms who spend hours away from their kids to get dressed up and prance around in 6 inch heels to be photographed during the ordinary course of their lives.

    I agree she ain’t no Jackie Kennedy but so what, she can do the job as well as any other actress. It’s just a movie for crying out loud.

  • r

    I think Jackie would be proud to have such a nice lady as Katie playing her

  • yak yak yak

    OMG….can’t sing, can’t act, can’t even be a good mom…enough all ready….its almost time for Tom to get bored of this one? Oh, maybe its 10 years…maybe she does have a little time left…not much

  • Michelle

    Katie playing Jackie O no way!!! Wow… Talk about horrible casting… Caroline Kennedy should be horrified to have such a terrible actress portraying her mother. There are so many better talented actresses out there who could play Jackie O.. How much money did Tom give the studio so she was cast?

  • riley

    Goodness grief…Katie playing Jackie O ???

    How stupid can these producers get?

    Oh..I forgot….Tom paid for it,

  • emma#2

    Same old , same old. You all know she’s playing Jackie Kennedy for months, why act so surprised.
    Katie’s gorgeous!
    Sorry I don’t find anything special about Jackie O !!

  • @emma#2

    Well, most of us don’t find anything special about Ms. Holmes. Jackie had far more class in her little finger than Holmes has in her entire body.

  • emma#2

    Most younger people don’t know much about Jackie O…. only the know it all people on JJ…….geez you people must be old, or you are pretending to know all about her style, this that and everything. Get life!

  • mirabel

    Katie doesn’t have the dignity to play Jackie O.
    What a shame she has been chosen for this role.

  • Courtney

    she’s going to bungle this one up big time she can’t act to save her life they could’ve asked somebody that would’ve been a tad more believable to play the part Melissa Newman for example granted she’s not been in a film for 20 years and has been around the industry litterally her entire life as both her parents are Emmy Golden Globe Cannes award and academy award winning actors/directors infact between them for the golden globes oscars and emmy’s their the most nominated married actors in the history of all three award shows

    right 23 Golden Globe nominations between 1957-2006 14 Oscar nominations between 1958 when Joanne won for the Three Faces Of Eve and 2003 when Paul was nominated for supporting actor for Road To Perdition and 12 Emmy noms between 1977-2006 when they were jointly nominated supporting actor/actress for the miniseries Empire Falls for the golden globes and Emmys he won those awards and unfortunately she lost

    @emma#2

    I venture to say a lot of us know about Jackie Kennedy. You know her life didn’t stop in 1963 upon the death of of Jack Kennedy. That assassination and her glamour and mystique is what still captivates people today. She died in 1993 and up until that time the paps followed her and she was a “must get” interview for everyone.

    I venture to say most of us either through memories or media remember her class. The way she was always exquisitely dressed for every event she attended whether it was sailing on a boat with her hair flying wildly or at a gala for NYC’s elite. Gee Emma#2 she knew what looked good on her and wore it to fit the occasion. She also wore clean, unwrinkled clothes. Katie has no fashion sense, but likes to think she is at the top of the fashionista chain. Unfortunately she is 31 or so years old and it looks like she isn’t ever going to get any fashion class.

    I venture to say most of us know she was a tiger about protecting her children and their privacy. Both Caroline and John Jr have said she was an incredible mother. Gee Emma#2–she managed to be an incredible mother without dragging the kids out to be photographed. Cruise (tom that is) keeps saying Suri has to get used to the paps because it is what it is. Well that doesn’t mean you have to drag a small child out what sometimes seems like daily for pap shots. Shopping, shopping, shopping. Hey, one would hate for Suri to do something other than shop and be paraded out for the paps.

    Jackie Kennedy’s image lives on today just like Diana because they both were media savvy, knew fashion and used it to increase their mystique. Both had flaws. BUT NEITHER ONE OF THEM PIMPED THEIR KIDS OUT like Katie Holmes does.

    Holmes may be smart, but one would never know it after listening to her exclaim how awesome everything is. Wonderful. Magical. In fact, when she did the Vanity Fair interview, they were shocked at her vapidness. Diana once said she was as thick as a plank, but you knew from her interviews that she came prepared, knew her stuff, and was a lot smarter than her education would lead anyone to believe. Jackie was very smart, very educated, very artsy. Katie comes off looking like she is a vapid, insipid idiot.

    And Emma#2 this is why many folks think she is in an arranged marriage and that she has no talent, no smarts, no skill. She should take her image in her own hands and tell Cruise and Xenu to take a flying leap. But alas, she is probably afraid like Nicole and other A list actors that her audit transcripts will somehow be leaked. That is what you get when you dump a lifetime of values and beliefs for a man and a cult you’ve known two months.

    I just want to puke!!!!!. HER as Jackie O??? PIG girl with NO talent and ugly as can be? Thats like having Jenna Jameson play Mother Theresa, absolutely appauling.
