Katie Holmes Covers 'Marie Claire' October 2010

Katie Holmes Covers 'Marie Claire' October 2010

Katie Holmes pairs her J. Mendel dress and DKNY tank on the October 2010 cover of Marie Claire, on stands Sept. 14. Here’s what the 31-year-old The Romantics actress opened up about:

On what it’s like being Mrs. Tom Cruise: “It’s really exciting. Tom’s as big at home as he is on the movie screen. He’s so passionate about everything, whatever he’s doing. When he’s being a dad, he’s right there;he’s giving it his all. It’s inspiring and it’s fun. It’s an amazing life, but we always remind ourselves of how incredibly lucky we are.”

On having more children: “Maybe in a couple of years, but right now I want to make sure I’m really there for Suri. I’m the youngest in my family-my closest sister is 5 years older than me, and the next one is nine years ahead of me, so I was a bit of an only child, and I liked it! I liked having all of my mom’s attention, and sometimes I think I still do.”

On what part of her upbringing she hopes to pass along to Suri: “We travel a lot, and so for me, it’s keeping a daily schedule for Suri that never changes. We wake up, and we do the same thing. She does her chores. I think it’s very important. If she doesn’t get her chores done, I notice she’s not really herself. She has to make her bed, she has to take her dishes to the sink, she has to put her clothes in the laundry – you know, that basic stuff. I try to do what my mom did for me … just spending time with her, making doll clothes and planting in the garden … When Suri comes to the set, we have art projects, and I just try to keep her busy and inspired.”

    OMG! What load of crappy lies!!!

    We wake up, and we do the same thing. She does her chores. I think it’s very important. If she doesn’t get her chores done, I notice she’s not really herself. She has to make her bed, she has to take her dishes to the sink, she has to put her clothes in the laundry — you know, that basic stuff.

    Does Suritard also changes her own diapers??
    This piece of Kaka has become more and more a bold liar.

  • Robobride Too

    beep beep – Tom is great
    beep beep – I love my life
    beep beep – Tom is rrwwwrrrnn..
    OOPS! Someone needs to be recharged (or re-medicated)

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    …she looks decent.

  • banarama

    Is it just me or does it look like she was squished to fit into the photo? (she’s all hunched over)

  • offtheproperty

    who forced that poor girl to be a celebrity at gunpoint?


    @Suritard: Just because she lives in a mansion doesn’t mean she can’t do simple things for herself, by ”CHORES” Katie means taking her plate to the sink, making her bed, putting her clothes in the laundry. The basic things 4 year olds should do. Children of rich celebrities usually don’t lift a finger, they have a whole team of staff (nanny, maids) who make their beds, wash their hands, take their plates to the sink, clean their asses. That is not the cast with Katie’s child.

    She’s 4, she can’t have other people doing everything for her. The kind of lifestyle Katie is supporting is very healthy. I think she is doing a wonderful job raising her child.

  • Madam Gaga

    What a poor excuse not to have more children. As if she hasn’t already waited over four years while Tom is reaching 50. It is really weird that they haven’t had more children and that even now she has little interest.


    @Robobride Too: she doesn’t have to tell the world how much pain she feels when she had stomach cramps and who fcked her up in the past.

  • banarama

    @Madam Gaga:
    WOW. You wrote your comment as if Tom is Suri’s father. Katie is banking $3million for each year of marriage so of course she keeps saying that they (haha) are going to have more children. She’s just reciting the “Katie” (I’m sorry – “Kate”) lines from the script.

  • Suritard

    @HALES: yeah right!!


  • Robobride Too

    help – Would you translate what Hales said? You seem to understand and I can’t figure it out.

  • Lesley

    Stupid and pretentious. Next!

  • Suritard


    More children? These are all lies, as if people have no memories. Tommygirl once bragged about wishing to have 10 kids with Kaka, the tree trunk.
    Tommy’s sterile, Kaka had a ready made fetus with her when she applied for the position as the front beard. They are not going to have any more children, unless Tommy renegotiate the terms.
    This will have to be double expensive, for no sperm will come cheap this time.

  • Robobride Too

    I meant the #11 comment. Maybe you’re as lost as I am with that one.

  • Suritard

    @Robobride Too:
    Don’t mind this Hales, he or she was only taking the day shift before their team leader clocks in.

  • YAY!!!

    Ratings are back!!! Let’s take the minions DOOOOWWWWWWNNNNN!!!!!


    All the comments have to do with other people’ comments..well
    for one if she did not marry Tom Cruise would she be as big
    a star as she is today or would she still be a c lister…actress
    Love how she took over the Premiere of The Romantics the
    other academy award winning stars could just stay home because

  • **Hot Dog Stand**

    U must be kidding me???!!
    Katie’s answers prove my impression that Suri is a spoilt brat!. She is raising her daughter to be self-centred and unaccomplished in interpersonal skills beyond mom and dad. SHE GOTTA HAVE A MORE MEANINGFUL REASON for not having more children! rather than for channelling excessive attention on a child who is over-protected that she is not even allowed to walk past 4 yrs old! Suri will grow up with the belief of entitlement, aded being born into money will be brutal to whoever she meets if she is ever allowed to mix with regular people.

  • pr person

    Here is a gem …. Mr and Mrs. Crazy have a date night, screening a movie at home…then after the movie they have “probably a two-hour discussion about what we thought.”

    What?! OMG! THAT has to be added to her huge and growing list of WTF’s? So this couple that supposedly has the “most amazing love evah!” sits and talks, for two hours, about what they thought???? Yah! Like that is NORMAL!! What a bunch of freaks.

  • *Eye roll*

    I know these have been retouched but she looks really good.

  • Azote moral

    If she said she wants more hildren right away, Tom would be forcing her, all he wants is to have babies, if she wants to wait a couple of years, the reason is not good with you guys. It’s ridiculous!!! That’s her own damn business. Good lord, there is always something to say, you people are SICK. I say she looks great and the answers are sincere and sweet.

  • Susie#1

    Katie is very photoshopped for Marie Claire. Isn’t it amazing what can be done these days? Alas, no one thought to tell her to stand up straight…Her comments about her daughter are getting more inane each day. On sets they do art projects so that Suri remains inspired? Give me a f***ing break. Oh right, I forgot: they are a very “creative” family.

  • essie

    i don’t care, but i love katie holmes since dawson’s… if you had read interviews with her back then, she just seems like a down to earth girl. i mean, yeah ok, it surprised me when she married tom cruise, and who knows, maybe now she’s a completely different person, but that’s what life does to you anyway.

  • boston61

    Why is Marie Claire putting Scientology on it’s cover? This is a disgrace. Scientology KILLS.

  • zzzz

    Why is Marie Claire putting Katie Holmes on their cover? Just to discuss, as it says, her “fascinating” life with TC? I can’t believe other accomplished actresses were shoved aside for this nobody. Seriously, at LEAST they could put a successful TV actress like Nina Dobrev, or any from a slew of others whose new seasons are beginning this month.

  • Jake

    What a load of sh*t.

  • look left and right

    How about one of the ladies to the r and l of this column, on a BRAND NEW SHOW! Isn’t Ashley Tisdale more worthy? Wouldn’t Leighton Meester, the girls of 90210, Blake Lively, Courtney Cox, even Selena Gomez for heaven’s sake!

  • Who Cares

    Weird. How can she get consistently less interesting? They should study her in a lab!

  • aml

    @**Hot Dog Stand**:
    OMG! You said it perfectly! You are soooo right about this kid/family! Love it!!!

  • annie

    Katie is gorgeous, always had the best photoshoots. She looked so lovely on Regis and Kelly, and stunning on her way to Letterman, and beyong stunning in the actual interview with Letterman, and she was cuteand funny as well. Maybe she has become used to people putting her down, and doesn’t seem to care anymore, so she is free and easy , like she used to be.

  • to 25

    you bet that photo of katie has been photo shopped. unfortunately, she is not the only one. anna wintour at vogue makes no secret of the fact that almost all the photos on the cover are “improved”.

  • aml
  • Tony

    It just gets more ridiculous by the day…What a f*ckin liar. She KNOWS crazy dick breath cruise is gay, and that Suri isnt his, so she makes up some stupid dumb azz story such as this for not having more kids? How much Demerol IS she taking?

  • Pookie

    Madame Gaga.. (# 10) .are u kidding ?
    poor excuse to not having children?

    SHE and Tom should NOT have any more kids. They already have a brat.

    Pity the poor child if they have more kids!

    Not everyone should have kids !!!!!

  • Star Fox

    Save the doomsaying for another day, #21. It’s an insult to good people who grew up as only children to spout such idiocy.

    And she’s allowed to walk! Why wouldn’t she be?!

    How is that not normal, #22?

    Agreed, #24.

    You’re a bigoted idiot, #27.

    Why not Holmes, #28? She’s a movie star with a new film coming out.

    Leave their kids alone, #37.

  • Raven

    These are not good photos of Katie she looks dead or drug up in these pictures, there been better photo taken of her. The whole Suri dose chores thing seems like a lode of crap Suri is not told to dress properly for the weather or wear shoes when out around town and tells her mom what to wear and what not to wear yet were suppose to believe that Katie and Tom make Suri do chores. If in scientology a child is never told no and is for the most part able to do what they want dose not add up to what Katie is saying in this interview.

  • **Hot Dog Stand**

    @Star Fox:

    I’m sure there are countless parents with an only child who make sure that their kid can mingle with other kids and learn to share with other, care for others and able to handle their situation w/o mopm and dad picking them up with a lousy blanket at 18, bcoz Suri will go bat crazy when she steps into the world.Oops, Suri has gotten soo heavy! That”s bcoz u’re carrying a 14yr old stupid!

  • look left and right

    Starfox, you are loopy and out of the loop. Katie Holmes is a nobody compared to the successful, fresh new faces, like I mentioned above. People these days don’t watch reruns of Dawson’s Creek, they watch 90210, Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries, etc. The women who read this mag don’t give a sh*t about Suri’s art projects, and they would much rather see someone else like, haha, Jessica Simpson or even Miley Cyrus modeling beautiful designer gowns. Anything but this weirdo. I cannot believe you call her a “movie star”. She may have been IN a few films but she is not a movie star! And, yes, she has a new film coming out but she is one cast member of many!

  • Jokergurl

    I wonder how many more times these interviewers are going to ask Katie Holmes what it’s like being Tom Cruises wife? I saw a bit of Letterman last night and Katie always brings up Tom in everything she says like she’s programmed too or something, it’s a bit strange really. I’m glad she got rid of the Posh bob, only Posh can carry that off, so I am liking the hair.

  • annie

    Don’t you people talk about your husband, your partner, your lover your boyfriend. Honestly he’s her husband .
    I find it amazing , that other people can talk about the guy in their life except Katie. Then again Tom and Katie never do anything right , so I guess it shouldn’t surprise me , that you thought it wrong!

  • Bilbomet

    Love the pictures and the interview. I won’t bother commenting on some of the nonsense I have read in here, it’s absurd. Annie (no.43), is that really you?

  • annie

    Hi there Bilbomet
    Yes it’s me, can’t help myself….gotta say something or I’ll go crazy!
    You know how it is!

  • Bilbomet

    LOL I had the feeling it was you. Hope to see you back posting, it’s been a busy week.

  • Star Nuts

    LOL….Mr Star Fox said:


    Wow..he is delusional!

    Nobody in their right mind will think that Katie Holmes is a movie star!

    Wow! His comments/post always leave me laughing!

  • jolly folly

    Have to agree STAR NUTS. A movie star always dresses well, does their hair and make up on a daily basis and purports themselves in a movie star way ala Liz Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, etc. Whether they were dressed up or dressed down, they had presence. Katie does not.

    Katie is a mess that has minimal acting skill that married an A lister and now by association is reaping the rewards of her marriage contract.

  • It’s Robo-Bride

    It is no wonder she looks good on the cover–it is so heavily photo shopped. Suddenly she has gorgeous legs, a tiny waist and thin arms–wow what an incredible diet this woman is on. And of course for the shoot she wears make up, has clean styled hair. Most of the time she can’t be bothered to wear clean clothes, wash her hair and put on some make up– let alone do something with her hair style.

  • A movie star? BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Earth to Star Fox: Movie stars STAR in movies, and EXCEL at their craft, or at least have so much CHARISMA that their mediochre performances don’t matter, because people are DRAWN to them!
