Katie Holmes Inspired Tom Cruise to Start Dancing

Katie Holmes Inspired Tom Cruise to Start Dancing

Katie Holmes keeps warm in a grey sweater while returning to her apartment on Thursday (November 10) in New York City.

The day before, the 32-year-old actress took her daughter, Suri, 5, to Chelsea Piers.

Katie‘s husband, Tom Cruise, recently shared that he started dancing because he “was inspired by my wife.”

“She kept saying, ‘You’ve got to do a musical sometime,’” he told the L.A. Times.

Kate‘s a dancer, so she would say, ‘Let’s go to dance class,’ and she would take us and that’s how I kind of came up with the idea of Les Grossman doing hip-hop [in Tropic Thunder],” he added.

    I couldn’t even get passed the headline before I started to laugh my ass off! Then I got to the ‘Katie’s a dancer…’ part and fell out of my chair laughing.

    What in God’s name is she wearing? Dirty hair in messy top knot. A much too large sweater, too short and very ugly pants. The pants look like they are made of cheap polyester and are way too tight as you can see by the gathering around the butsky and the knees. Are they yoga pants? Because of looks like these (dirty hair, uncaring about her clothes) she always looks like she doesn’t bathe to me. I’m sure she does, but because she seems to care so little about her personal hygiene she just seems “dirty.”

    “Kate’s a dancer.” Jesus, they don’t even hear the words that come out of their mouths. They live in a world totally devoid of reality.

    she needs to let go of wearing skin tight pants. they don’t do her any favor, especially when most of her pants are either cinched at the ankle or are pegged. Neither of those are appropriate styles for her shape. and tom, katie is no dancer. have your PR folks write new lines for you. i get the sense that these two barely know each other.

    layla Says:

    why does she always stare to the ground when she’s walking????

    she looks confused and defeated here.

    maybe she came from the scientology center or maybe she pissed of tommyboy and he showed her who the real……..

    I wonder if Tom ever looks at Katie and cannot believe he dumped Nicole Kidman for this. I wonder if Katie can even have an intelligent conversation. Some of the things she says just blows my mind. I’ll bet Nicole is sure glad she isn’t with Tom, she has Keith Urban and Keith is just scrumptious and sooooo talented..

    About the sweater: Maybe she’s trying to re-capture her youth, you know, before it all went downhill. She’s a slovenly mess, ignorant, and out-of-touch with reality. But hey, she’s a “dancer.”

    ARE YOU FREAKIN’ KIDDING ME? ‘KATE’S A DANCER’?????? Standing in one spot and putting your hands up in the air and moving your legs back and forth DOES NOT MAKE YOU A DANCER!! I WANT TO THROW UP!!! My apologies to all the wonderful dancers out there.

    All I could think of was that excruciatingly embarrassing dance they did together with the top hat and her knock-knees in tights and Tom sliding around the floor. LOL! Or Tom’s “dance off” at that wedding where he tries to do the man-splits and then gives himself a fist pump like “I nailed it!” heh. Actually yes, I can quite see how that dancing is “inspired” by Katie, who has similar talents… lol
