Katie Holmes Honors Tom Cruise for Wiesenthal Center

Katie Holmes Honors Tom Cruise for Wiesenthal Center

Katie Holmes comes out to support and honor her husband, Tom Cruise, during the 2011 Simon Wiesenthal Center National Tribute Dinner at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Thursday (May 5) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

“It’s a tremendous honor,” Tom said as he received the Humanitarian Award for his work as a philanthropist. “For me and my family this is really a very special evening and I look at what Simon Wiesenthal accomplished with his life, what this museum represents. Our challenge, ladies and gentlemen, is to make sure that we do all in our power to see to it that there will be no more Auschwitz/Birkenaus, no more Rwandas, no more Darfurs on our planet. That our children and their children may be free to live in a world where men and women are judged by their accomplishments and deeds rather than by their race or religion.”

Tom was also accompanied at the event by his son, Connor, as well as movie producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

FYI: Katie is wearing a black Dolce&Gabbana dress with green bow detail. She accessorized with Cindy Chao-The Art Jewel earrings.

    Isn’t it about time she had another child? You would think she wants a son as well but she doesn’t seem interested. Their relationship has been basically stagnant since 2006.

    Katie is incredibly gorgeous. I love her. She’s really beautiful and a really sweet girl.
    She has to drop that ugly horse’s ass husband of hers, Tom Cruise. It is unfortunate that she is as attractive as she is misguided with her poor taste in men. She should be with someone around her age not a guy who obviously can’t handle women around his age.

  • Lindsey Strauss

    I’m glad Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are still together and in a happy relationship after all these years.
    I adore my boyfriend. I’ve never been happier. I am just so, so in love. For the first year, we’ve been working out how to be together because our jobs are so crazy and all over the place. But I know he’s The One. That’s all I can say – he is The One. I’m totally in love. I’m so relieved I found someone I want to be with for the rest of my life. No more dating headaches. We both knew right away that it felt different. It felt very special. We were very comfortable with each other very quickly. It was a good sign. He makes me want to be a better person and I feel so lucky to have him.

  • shiri

    Katie looks good, but she has this ‘sad eyes’ look…

  • Brandt

    I hope that Tom Cruise does more dramas from now on. He is pigeonholing himself as an actor who just does action movies. I’ve always wanted to see him do a movie with Julia Roberts and one with Tom Hanks. They are all incredible actors and it would be amazing to see them bounce off each other in a film.
    He is an underrated actor. So, I hope that he does more dramas, tries to reach his full potential as an actor and tries to win an Oscar.

  • lolo

    Katie got a boob job to hide the fact that she just got out of the psychiatric ward.

  • Nooooo

    Tom Would look better with a shorter less quarterback lookin wife. Katie looks big next to him

  • danielle

    What Humanitarian work?

  • NO!

    The pigeon toed tree trunks ruin any serious photo.

  • kelly

    I want to see Tom Cruise in a movie surrounded by midgets, so that he can finally be surrounded by actors shorter than he is.

  • danielle

    Okay – I googled it and looked it up…this is why Tom earned the award (and the folks giving it to him must not have viewed the Hitler like video of him saluting etc for Scientology)

    Tom earned the Jewish human rights organization’s humanitarian honor, and the distinction was earned due to his longtime support of their Museum of Tolerance in addition to work bringing Nazi atrocities to light. He was especially able to reveal WWII abuses in the film Valkyrie, playing a German soldier who attempted to assassinate Hitler. Tom had friends and business partners from movie projects of the past, present, and future on hand to wish him well.

    Shouldn’t Tom pay his fair share of taxes befor he becomes Mr. Philanthopist? Tom puts a couple of grazing cows on his vacation house property in Colorado for a couple of months so it qualifies for a HUGE tax break as farmland. He saves tens of thousands with this tax loophole, (like he needs it).

    Wow. It looks like he drugged her or put her in a trance and then said hold my hand and do what I say!

    “Our challenge, ladies and gentlemen, is to make sure that we do all in our power to see to it that there will be no more Auschwitz/Birkenaus, no more Rwandas, no more Darfurs on our planet.”

    Go and talk to Obama the clown and his master, the illegal state of Israel. I assume my comment will be censored, right? For “low rating”, ha ha…

  • pokepoke

    They hire someone in an expensive suit to poke her with a stick every so often so she doesn’t drift off. Look closely and you may see it.

  • Eliza

    A travesty to give the poster boy for Scientology a humanitarian award.
    What about the investigation into all the cult human rights abuses, the forced abortions, disconnection from families, underpaid “slave labor”? Throw some money around that you won’t even miss and you can buy almost anything, I guess. Very disappointing.

  • Casper

    # 1- you are such an idiot! Why does this clueless bimbo NEED another child???

    No….she does NOT need another child to turn into a brat.

    Boy….Katie sure looks like she is in a trance with that side crooked forced phony smile.

  • ace11

    Where are the Martians?

    a shame…she used to be real pretty, energetic and had a lot going for her

    now…she’s a complete shell of that, controlled by a whacko

    Her parents must be totally ashamed

  • Lucy

    It’s a travesty to give him an award like this when his organization is being investigated for using slave labor to build his toys. And she just looks awful – her hair is a mess and she can’t manage a full smile – not even her usual smirk. The dress isn’t bad although it’s pretty boring. I also think it’s interesting that Bella is never seen with TC.

  • Desperate & Awkward

    1. She did botox right before a big event again. It makes her face look lifeless and greasy. Or maybe she got high and rubbed fried chicken wings on her forehead.

    2. The cankles are getting bigger. She should cover them as to not distract from how ludicrous it is that Tom received this award.

    3. She slouches and smirks like she’s never been in front of a camera.

    4. Why not wear a sign saying, “I hate being with Tom!”

  • lucy2

    Poor Katie. No MET Ball for her…just bogus awards and bought “acting” jobs.
    Here’s what love looks like:,0,0#1

  • Poor Tom!

    First she ruins his career, now she can’t even make an effort to behave respectful while he receives a serious award. She is dressed like a tart and presents herself as anti-social. Rude.

    Tom, it is okay to divorce her.

  • KC

    She looks limp and he looks like Moe from the three stooges. Yikes!

    Lucy, #24, there was a very tiny item in some newspaper several days ago that stated that now that Isbella has turned 18, she has moved on from living with Tom Crazy and is now in Nashville with Nicole.

  • NYC

    I love you Tom Cruise
    Congratulations on such an honorable award.
    TC does all sorts of things and keeps it quiet.
    He has donated lots of money to various causes for years.

  • missy b

    Lol, what a ridiculous comment. This event was much more important and interesting than some fashion ball.

  • Priyanka

    I was a Tome Cruise fan…but now its clear what he is doing to Katie…She does not look happy, does not look like she is in love…it may be BOTOX but she looks so very sad…my advice..get out of this madness

  • Romeo

    Is there something wrong with saluting now, #12? How does one salute like they are saluting to Hitler?

    Where did you hear this, #15?

    Cruise has nothing to do with that, #21? Those people and Cruise just pray to the same God.

    I wouldn’t use the word never, #24. Just rarely. Ever considered that she’s simply not into the lifestyle like her brother is.

    It’s not true, #33.

  • ck

    Tom Cruise has been making movies for almost 30 years now, and I’m struck by how few of his fellow Hollywood brethren came out to support him for what is a very nice honor.

    Malin Akerman hasn’t even worked with him yet (has just been cast in “Rock of Ages”).

  • toria


    Romeo, you obviously didn’t see the video #12 is referring to. There are also a couple of videos out there interspersing the third reich with scientology crapola. Very scary how similar they are.

    Tom shows a great intolerance for nonscientologists in his personal life. Almost everything he gives to is associated with the cult.

    This award is very misplaced. He belongs to a cult that has a lot of similarities with Hitler’s organization. An intolerance for anyone who does not belong. If you try to leave you are harassed, blackmailed, blackballed, and sometimes physically punished. And Tom and his “friend” cult leader DAvid Miscavage both have used slave labor and KNEW it.

    You are so blind to Tom’s faults that it won’t matter what proof anyone gives you, you’ll find a reason to excuse his actions.

  • Hilary

    I hope she will play an action heroine one day or at least have one little fight in a movie. Just let her kick a guy in the groin or something.

  • Anon

    NYC@ Tom does not keep his charitable work quiet before the crazy sofa jumping incident you always heard about whatever “charitable work” Tom did it’s just in the last couple of years Tom tarnish his image so much that it erase the “good” he may have done in the past people don’t care anymore he known now as a crazy man, who is the face of Scientology a cult, a man who people feel seems to drain the life out of his partners. Just like Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson tarnish their images so much that people don’t care about what ever good they might do or had done all people think about them now is that their crazy as hell.

  • Jose

    If it was just one photo that she looked drugged in I would say it’s a bad photo but she look drug in all of them.

  • lmao

    KT the alien is totes having another alien baby

  • lmao

    @Jose: she’s with child. have some respect.

  • rainy day

    Pop Sugar has some pics of Katie shopping at Barneys. As usual she looks like crap, but she looks totally pregnant in the tight and short tops she is wearing.
    The pics are funny since she is so serious about buying shoes or whatever.

  • mya

    She seemed to force herself to smile, but it’s not natural. She’s unhappy and tired. Tom looks as usual … but in the first pic, I wasn’t sure if it was Tom or Luke Wilson. Hate his hair this way.

  • Romeo

    Maybe there is resemblance in Nazi and Scientologist doctrine but criticizing the way Cruise salutes is stupid, #39. You don’t know what intolerance means if you think Cruise is just because he supports his religion. There is no proof of Cruise using slave labor and I already know that Scientologists have done bad things.

    She always does to you, #42. No matter what. It is all in your head.

  • Kat

    Katie has got herself into a mess, it would be hard to get out. Have you seen pics of her with her daughter? She would have to say bye bye to living with Suri if she decided to leave her marriage. That in itself would be a difficult perplexed decision and i do not believe Katie could handle not being around her daughter or have the rules changed as to how much of a part she would ultimately get to spend with Surie or play with Surie…ahem.
    She is too weak for Tom’s antics and her face definetly does look dozed out on anti depressants but dang maybe she need them. Tom would be freaking out if he knew but Katie has the money to set it up to have her antidepressants. The cult believes they can cure you of everything (no meds) so if you were losing your mind meds would not be allowed .
    Maybe with the cult waterboarding is allowed ..don’t know….j/k..i think… they are a pretty weird bunch..
    Here is a strong scenario of how anyone can be boughten. Katie saw the $$$$$$$$$$ and it was a done deal within the first hour.
    The child is hers but very doubtful Tom is the father . He could not have children remember. Okay the story went around about Nicole Kidman having a miscarriage , i don’t know if that is true . But if she did, fact remains it wasn’t Tom’s child.
    Apparently tom and Nicoles’s daughter Bella wanted out bad at age 18. Finally Tom let her rent possibly own? one of the many homes he owns.
    That was the case but things might have changed since her move. This is not uptodate news. it wouldn’t surpise me if she is still living on her own with BGs from the cult checking up on her . That’s the way Tom operates.
    This is absolute bs getting a medal for this crap..dig a little deeper and see why. It’s all available on the internet and it will shock the sox off anybody who hasn’t read about this cult.

    Poor Poor Katie. BUT MONEY TALKS….

  • Kat

    Slave labor will all come out as much as they are trying to cover it up.

    And yes before medals like this why doesn’t tom pay his taxes? Shady character and ppl are onto him that is why he has no pride in begging ppl to like him..pathetic

    wanted to add another poster said something about Katie and tom looking odd together.
    They do b/c she is a big woman who works hard to keep herself as small as she can be but she will never lose that big boned look. that’s her that’s katie’s shape.. Can you imagine how pizzzzed tom is at katie for saying the ell with it i am wearing high heels like it or not. Tom is the boss and katie is standing her ground on the height thang. LOL Teaching her daughter already that’s the only way i could fight back dear child was by wearing the heel height i wanted and you my dear daughter start early wearing the high ones saying fcuk you as early as you can like at age 3. Ohhh Poor katie things are very mixed up for her. Betcha now she is telling herself she went into that cult marriage with eyes wide shut and it’s hopeless to make any moves. Nobody is taking her Suri and running the show. Surie runs the show first and Surie will decide who runs it next.
    It’s a shame when katie got sucked into the Let me make you A bigger movie star by apt with tom cruise> appts tom made with all the young starlets in HW in their 20′s and Katie fell for it. Good for Scarlette J. for seeing right thru the whole set up . She scooted asap. TOM WAS NABBING HIMSELF A YOUNG HW BRIDE WHO WAS TOO DUMB TO GO PAST SEEING BEYOND THE MONEY.. Who knows maybe katie was too nice to think cruise was anything but a real great guy. BUT Cmon the talk about the cult and bad stuff they did was on the net long enough for katie to know there was something she should of looked into before going to the appt. and not returning home without a ph. call to family or friends for over 22 days….Not Like Katie, ppl were worried. Katie came back engaged. and somebodies sperm was in her (not toms)but she would be telling the world any day she was preggers. No wonder in hindsight Katie is a lost soul.

    They are the oddest looking couple from behind you could ever see. She looks like a monster over shawdowing this little guy who lives in a big mans world. Whoott EEK..see those dead eyes..they are skerry.

    And Romeo fcuk off everybody is entitled to their opinions and what info they do know if they feel like saying it. Get over it you can’t change waht is in fron t of most ppl can’t make this crap go away.
    You are dammm right those ppl are bad.

  • annie

    The trouble with a lot of you is—– you really don’t know much about Katie or even seen too many pre Tom pics.
    She does have big smiles, and doesn’t have big smiles, and that’s the way she’s always been.
    Love her dress , shoes, hair, and she’s got beautiful hazel eyes.
    As Kevin Williamson (creator of DC, and wrote Teaching Mrs Tingle, for her) once said, that Katie has soulful eyes, and when he looked at them , he understood them, and this is going back 12 yrs ago.
    He saw them as soulful, you see them as dead, because that’s what you choose to see.
