Katie Holmes Looks for Roles That Challenge Her

Katie Holmes heads out of the gym after an intense workout on Tuesday (September 6) in Brentwood, Calif.

The 32-year-old Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark actress (in a Junk Food tee) also dropped by a dance studio earlier in the week with her hubby, Tom Cruise.

Katie recently told the Wall Street Journal that she looks for variety in the roles that she plays.

“During my whole career, I’ve always looked for characters that I’ve never played before, and I’ve always wanted to work with really great filmmakers. That’s always been my philosophy, and made my career personally very enriching,” Katie said. “It’s just important to keep working harder to find roles that are interesting to me and movies that I enjoy and characters that will challenge me.”

    Really…roles that challenge her? She needs to keep looking because most of her recent work falls into the Epic Fail category.

    I’ll give her a pass on these intrusive photos. And I’ve looked a helluva lot worse coming out the gym… so yeah.

    All roles are challenges for her, since she’s a bad actor.
    And I don’t care if she just worked out, she looks like a mess and that has nothing to do with the sweat.

    Kaite Holmes looks for challenging roles.

    Hmmm, playing the role of a MOTHER!!! Playing the role of the ADULT WOMAN with Tomand MOTHER ,AN ADULT with her child, a 6 yr. old seems she should go after.

    Having Tom, Suri,andtheSciencfitiontoloy church rule her is really crazy. Whydon’t she step up and work on these things?

    She could Nicole Kidman and ask her to be an adult woman,equal partner in marriage,etc.
    Ask VictoriaBeckham.

    She needs to challenge her brain first!

    Perhaps go back to college…get more education and also take a couple of parenting classes.

    Interesting quote coming from her; not once did she use the words amazing or magical. She must have had a PR person write the comment because she uses “big” words like philosophy and enriching. I agree with others: that she go to college and take parenting courses.

    Roles that challenge her? Judging by the way she looks on a regular basis, it seems playing the role of “human” is even too much of a challenge for her.

    using the word “career” in an article about Holmes seems like a reach. she doesn’t have a career – she has some projects that her husband bought for her.

    How about going to school learn to act. How to parent so you don’t carry that child anymore who’s as tall as Tommy. Maybe dress like a person not one that looks like you’ve been on a binge all night.

    Either her husband buys parts or her or her career is a failure, #1. Make up your mind.

    She has a steady and successful acting, fashion and sometime modeling career, #18. Prove her husband buys roles for her or shut up.

    LOL Romeo… too are clueless!

    You are SO wrong in what you just said! Wrong to everything!

    What’s wrong with you?

    I get the sense you are actually part of her family…and that is why you act/post nonsense things.

    Dumbeo…..I mean….Romeo….

    LOL..successful acting….fashion…???? Man, what makes you think that?. Don’t bother to respond ….we could care less what you say because…….U dont even know what you are talking about,

    I think U should be the one to shut up.

    U are fooling yourself!

    Successful Acting Career? PROVE IT! Go to Box Office Mojo and look at the financial stats for her movies since Batman. BOMB BOMB BOMB. Don’t be Afraid of the Dark came in embarrassingly lower than projected: BOMB.
    Fashion line? HA! Goes to the sale racks much more quickly than comparable designers in terms of price and quality.
    Model–well yes, she is modeling these days. Fits her intelligence quota–all she has to do is pose and say “amazing” about whatever she is wearing. Certainly didn’t earn the title of model. Being Mrs. Tom Cruise has gotten her most of her modeling jobs. If she was plain ol’ KH not married to Cruise–she never would have gotten those modeling jobs.
    Successful? YOU PROVE IT.

    Every role challenges her, because she can’t act.
