Katie Holmes Covers 'Marie Claire' November 2011

Katie Holmes Covers 'Marie Claire' November 2011

Katie Holmes is red hot on the cover of Marie Claire‘s November 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (October 25).

Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share:

On always bringing a snack and a coloring book: “My daughter was with me the other day at a work event and it was a long day. I took out some paper and markers that I had in my bag, and someone said to me, ‘Oh, that is so cute,’ and I looked at her and thought, No, this is not cute. This is what all mothers have to do.”

On how she slips so effortlessly between work and family life: “Because you have to. As an actress who is also a mother, you don’t have the luxury of drama.”

  • ck

    “On how she slips so effortlessly between work and family life” How bout her husband is a gazillionare, so she has a staff of 50 to help?

  • Anon

    I forgot that she is in that HORRIFIC Adam Sandler comedy Jack & Jill that is coming out in November. So her being on a magazine cover makes sense. That said, I really do judge people who would buy a magazine since she is on the cover. They don’t even have to interview her anymore. EVERY INTERVIEW is the same! And CK? THANK YOU for the comment about the husband being a gazillionaire. That’s also how she gets the (few) crappy roles that she does. Does she not know she’s a freaking joke?

  • Guest

    No, it is not what mothers do. Thye put their 6 yr.s in school while they go to work.
    If she had such a big business meeting, why not leave that feral looking kid at homne with the nanny.
    Why take this kid to a business meeting?

    I just think it sad how Katietom put that kid out there.
    It is not like other celebs who take their kids to kid things or errands or to school and the papps sometimes, wrong to do so, but they take pics .

  • essie

    man i used to like katie holmes.. but she’s become so fake

  • annab

    When you are mega rich…you forget how easy you have it. She would fold out here in the “real” world.

  • Nicole

    I remember the behind the scenes photos of this shoot and girl looked horrible! skinny, bony and unhealthy for sure…

    it looks like they purposely chose the photo w the worst lighting to hide that?! idk, but come the eff on!

  • CaryA

    She already travels with her daughter why not travel with Tom she sounds like a single parent.

  • notkidding

    Charlie’s Angels was cancelled….thought she was being considered for one of them. Guess that was a bust. Cancelling it seemed better than hiring her.. Here, here!

  • Jackie

    @ck: LOL! These women today, particularly celebs, don’t know what is it to be a “real” mother, like mine was. They haven’t got a clue how hard it is and how much dedication it requires to be done right.

  • Happy

    I find her soo boring. There is nothing attractive about her – neither in her look nor her personality. Let’s face it, as an actress she doesn’t have any memorable role and good movies. Whenever she’s doing interview it all about her daughter, “aw she helps me”,”I take her there blah blah . That speaks volume. She is not a professional, she is not able to talk about acting or her work, but her family life. Yawn. Thanks God she married Tom or where would she be now?!

  • http://scientology.org/ Xenu

    Being TommyBoi’s beard has sure helped her career. What a phony baloney.

    Let’s not even mention that horrid little troll child, conceived with the late L Ron Humbuggery’s frozen spermies.

    UGHHHH

    Get rid of then. please Jared.

  • eyes are rollin

    this girl always makes me vomit when i see photos of her… its as if she’s always trying to shove herself and her “talents” down our throats.

  • Marie Claire hits a low

    I can’t say a NEW low because Katie has been on their cover before, and whyyyyyy??? I wrote to the editor of MC to suggest more interesting people for their cover (there are so many good female actresses to chose from, who are in popular TV shows and movies!!), but I think Tommy is paying them for the Katie covers so I doubt it will stop.

  • Katie’s blankie

    Why was this poor, ill-adjusted little girl with Katie all day for a work event? My mom was a single, working professional and would have never dragged me to work with her-I would have been bored and she would have been distracted. It’s October and that kid is 5 years old-what’s wrong with letting her spend the day at school, with other kids her age, being normal? I think this is more about Katie’s neediness and loneliness. She drags that kid around with her like a blankie.

  • cari

    She is so out of touch with reality. Yes, Katie, real moms keep crayons and paper and other things to keep their kids interested when out and about with them in their bags, BUT generally we working moms aren’t allowed to bring our kids to work. AND most of us would not subject a child to a “long day” when they could have been left home and to more interesting fun than to watch mom parade herself around at a “work” event.

  • Mandy

    She looks absolutely gorgeous!!!!

  • eh

    she looks absolutely airbrushed.

  • soo lame

    shes always got this cute little story you know she put together w/ the PR people right before the interview….lame….oh ..my.. god…when.. will …it…ennnnd. Please enough of this talent-less jerk.

  • yuck

    http://katiehonline.com/ on her fan page there is a video… she acts just like Britney spears…whats that all about? so gross.

  • fae

    Always talking about Suri with no much sense. It’s like mothers do? really Katie?
    In every interview she does, she looks more dumb everyday.

  • Romeo

    She’s much more popular than you want to admit and she’d be doing bigger and more commercial work if her roles were being bought by her husband, #4.

    You have no idea how any of these two are like and how she is being raised of the details of this work event, #s 5, 16 and 17.

  • Janwa

    Whenever I read an article about her, see her in a TV interview or even just see her picture online or in a magazine I get majorly irritated. Who the hell is she if not for her cuckoo husband? She’s just a nobody. She doesn’t even have talent as an actress enough to overshadow her husband like what happened to Nicole Kidman.

    And please Katie, that someone said the image of your daughter coloring is cute not the act of you giving crayons, etc. You are so dumb and shallow. I have no words.

  • Suri Jackson

    What happened to Suri going to that Scientology sponsored school? Did she throw a fit and get kicked out?
    Tom and Katie make me sick for what they have done to that child!!

  • Julie2

    And she thinks she is an actress…..Someone need to wake up that woman.

  • pumkin

    First of all Romeo…….don’t u realize every stupid nonsense comment you make is stupid? U make such a fool out of yourself. LOL

    about this photo…..Katie’s head looks too big for the body that is on the magazine. I wont be buying this magazine for sure. Who cares about their family ..with their awful brat??

    Everything that comes out of her mouth is stupid. Such an airhead…its painful to see what she says…….especially about the “what moms do” comment. Normal moms do NOT drag their child all over work. Ugh…she would be fired asap! It would be cruel to other workers having to put up with her brat!

  • Suri Jackson

    I actually just looked at the photo of her “posing”.
    1) Haven’t we seen her in a similarly oddly designed top before?
    2) Really… the photographers could not manage to get just ONE good photo of her where she is not standing pigeon-toed? YIKES!

  • please

    The “what moms do comments” are unnecessary… most people are parents or know this stuff, the interviewer was trying the “break the ice”, especially since she always so awkward and phony. She is the typical first time parent, everything the kid does is magical and unique and EVERYONE HAS TO KNOW… I think she really believes that people care to here about this nonsense. What the interviewer hopes to find out, by bringing Suri up, is DIRT… personal baggage or something that will explain the tabloid sensation that she is… I just want someone to interview and ask her ” So, why is it your kid has a bottle sticking out of her mouth at 5-6 yrs old?”… I bet she gets rude questions from the paps, but I just want some credible publication to go there one day! This girl is NOT ALL THAT.. far from it, and shes hanging with the big boys, and its very much undeserved.

  • it’s Robo-Bride

    I just clicked on the link to the Marie Claire and read the interview and viewed the tape. Robo-Bride indeed!

    First off if you read Galt Niederhoffer who wrote the Romantics and has written articles for various publications–then you know she is fawning big time over Holmes. She is a much grittier writer and here she is sucking up overtime. This piece is by no means carries any thing akin to journalism. It is more a love letter sucking up to a major A lister. Sentences like this are gagable: “She returns with the ketchup and settles into the booth. Part Bambi, part Ali MacGraw, Katie and her massive doe eyes, rosebud cheeks, and darling smile have everyone in the restaurant down for the count.”

    Secondly as usual the little video interview does nothing to convince anyone that Holmes actually has a functioning brain. She refers to the NY Marathon that she supposedly ran. Right. I have done marathons and there is no way she ran it. No sweat. She had on a loose top with no sports bra–no bleeding nips like anyone else would get. Nothing about her physical appearance convinces the majority of folks who run marathons (this has been a minor discussion among them-did she or didn’t she run) that she completed all 26.2 miles. No one even remembers seeing her until mile 17. So right Katie–bring up something no one believes you did.

    Not to mention she looks horrendous in this fashion layout.

    Brainless Bimbo personified.

  • here we go again…

    So tired of seeing this crazy bitch… the writer of the article is sucking up… Tom probably helped finance the Romantics hence the reason for the “producer” title… I visited that set out in Southold Long Island. I live there… I was at a vineyard in a very exclusive area. .it was not a cheap operation! Independent films need all the money they can get..So, if Ghalt (sp?) wants more funding with future, she must do whats necessary by sucking up to wifey. I can see Katie “producing” for her again, for sure…. I’m sure Katie Holmes gets lots of this smoke blown up her flat ass daily… which can explain the over-confidence and delusional aura she gives out…. she has no clue shes not cool and talent-less. One more thing– the people you see following her around w/ cameras in NY or staring–THOSE ARE NOT REAL NY’ERS, they are paparazzi and out-of-town-ers gawking. New Yorkers are the people in the background not even looking walking by quickly, almost appearing annoyed by the comotion … BECAUSE THERE ARE FAMOUS PEOPLE EVERYWHERE in NY… so when the writer says that she “stops traffic” .. its those fools that they are talking about. New Yorkers don’t care about Katie Holmes leaving her apt building or eating at Balthazar… or the little bratty kid she dolls up for attention.

  • Susan C.

    Folks, I’m just waiting for the day when these two (Tom and Kate) call it a day. Ten years is approaching fast. Weirdo that Tom Cruise is, he still could get some gorgeous bodied wannaby actress to hang with him. Katie Holmes, minus the tons of make-up and designer clothes is truly nothing to look at, lets be real. Pictres of her when she was pregnant were scary!!! Even now, walking around NY, LA, or wherever, she looks awful. No breasts, rear end, shapley legs nothing!! Now I ask you, what does Tom Cruise see in this total bimbo?? SHE makes him look bad. When her time is up, she’ll collect her paycheck from Tom and fade away, but not until Suri gets older and refuses to hang with her all over the place like ‘dog-do’ ! Thanks!

  • Susan C.

    Also, for God’s sake, is there anything this crazy can talk about other than “Tom, Suri and how lucky she is. Is she so shallow that there is nothing else on this earth she can discuss other than Tom’s next movie and her Amazing, magical, talented, smart, funny, bottle drinking, pacificer sucking 5 yr. old daughter?????

  • Tessa

    Make her go away! Please! MAKE HER GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • gigi

    Wrong katie! Actually most mothers send their kids to school
