Katie Holmes Encouraged Tom Cruise to Do 'Rock of Ages'

Katie Holmes Encouraged Tom Cruise to Do 'Rock of Ages'

Tom Cruise holds hands with wife Katie Holmes while heading to a dance studio on Friday (December 16) in NYC.

The 49-year-old actor will soon be helping Katie celebrate her birthday – she turns 33 this Sunday (December 18)!

Tom recently revealed that he decided to do Rock of Ages with some encouragement from Katie.

“[She] kept saying, ‘You’ve got to make a musical.’ The dancing of [Tropic Thunder character] Les Grossman is inspired because Kate is a dancer. She sings and she would take us to [dance classes],” Tom told MTV News.

“[She would say] ‘I’ve got this dance class for the family, come on we’ve got to do it. We’ve got hip-hop class, we’ve got to do it,’” he added.

FYI: Katie is carrying Clare Vivier‘s red messenger bag.

    Phew…The Pimp Mama and the Gay Midget finally gave the most whoredd out child labor a break. What? Not enough sugar and toys to bribe her into cooperation?

    By the way, as for the report, hardly have I read anything so filled with lies in a few paragraphs.
    …because Kate is a dancer. She sings and she would take us to [dance classes],”….

    What CRAP!!
    However I have to give them credit for giving a night break to Suritard.

  • zzzzzz….

    boring.

  • Question

    Why is holding hands so complicated?

  • kelly

    Kate looks ill.

  • Shut it Tom!

    I wish her would stop calling her a singer and a dancer. it only makes us think he’s deft and blind.

  • Shut it Tom!

    Looking pregnant–last couple of posts she’s had the same bag over her midsection which appears to be a way to cover up the possible baby bump. Also, face is pale and looking kind of bloated. Time will tell…

  • livvyloo

    @Question:
    So true!

    They look forced, and for the life of me I can’t picture all of them getting truly excited over anything, least of all a hip hop class (without cameras rolling).

  • @cupcake

    or maybe she’s “not on drugs” again.

    i almost agreed with your entire sentiment until you referred to Surii as “Suritard”. that has, in my opinion, entirely negated what you said. i don’t accept nor do i tolerate verbal attacks against children.

  • Suri is stimming

    @mary:

    Suritard is not a child.
    She’s a PR tool bought, used and whored out by her PIMP MAMA and the gay midget. I’ve never said anything about her when she’s not working to honor her pimp mama’s contract.

    So you have to that dense?

    What an amazing family. Thanks for keeping us updated Jared, we love following them. Everyone loves them. They are so down to earth, surprisingly. As big as a star Tom is, you’d never know! He’s been at the top for over a decade, and he’s still the same gracious man he was before the fame. It’s not surprising that he married such a down to earth simply woman like Katie. Connor, Isabella and Suri are so lucky to have such an awesome dad and stepmom. They are truly America’s favorite family.

  • Me

    Tom was so SEXY in Mission Impossible 4. Katie is a lucky woman.

    Jeni your insane if you honestly believe the crap you posted, they couldn’t care anything about anybody but themselves. Suri is the devil’s spawn, gets carried at 6yrs old, never goes to school, dresses like an adult, Katie looks like trash all the pictures I;ve seen of her, Tom’s gay as you can be and he’s hasn’t been relevent for years, all his latests movies fail…….They whole F__king family needs to die, and you never see him with Connor or Isabella? Why is that.
    F_CK all you people who thinks their wonderful…..

  • wow

    I dunno if this facade or real. katie is real but how’s mr. carreer tom.

    fish

  • Tessa

    Eww! I hate when he holds her hand like that. I’ve seen him do it in some other pictures and it always screams “master and servant”, not husband and wife in love.

    you are definitely a vicious troll. and certainly not worth anyone’s time.

  • Greenlie

    ugh! She’s got potty fashion taste. Ugly purse/bad color…..plop of poop on top of her head….and flappy looking shoes??? boots?

    geez…she can’t even pick a normal pair of boots!

  • So Chic!
  • toria

    @Still A Smoker:

    I think it is a toy. But hard to tell. However, when you scroll down the pics you can see that Katie allows this almost six year old to STAND on the table. Kid is in her PJ’s, cranky and standing on the table. It appears to be just the two of them. If your kid wants to be dressed in their PJ’s and it is late at night, STAY HOME. I’m sure whether they are at one of the six or so apartments where they live or a hotel, that someone could deliver some food to them so that Katie doesn’t have to take the cranky child out. PR EVENT!

    @mary: I’m not a fan of this family. Everything about them seems to weird…the forced looking hand holding; their choice of clothing atire for Suri especially Suri wearing heels. Yes, Suri comes off as being a spoiled brat. Mary I do have to agree with your. I feel it’s wrong to imply the child is “retarded”

  • WOW

    talk about glazed eyes and an vacant expression!!!!!

    it’s like tom dragged robobride from her bed, so they can stage this “going out together as husband and wife” .

    OMG, i just can NOT understand how katie can let tom control/manipulate her live like that.

    she has no carrier of her own, she is just letting tom use her like a trophy wife just to promote his movies.

    doesnt she have feelings , doesnt she feel betrayed by him or used??

    i just cant understand how someone can live like this.

  • Mission Impossible 4

    Is already a bonafide HIT. First movie I will see in almost a year. Thank you Tom! Love you!

  • Mission Impossible 4

    And Cammillus, you’re an evil Witch or Warlock; probably a gay man who is jealous if Tom is bisexual and he gets a wife and family, while your life sucks! Lol! Can’t see anyone in his/her right mind hating this family so much. What has Tom Cruise ever done so wrong? NOTHING!! Meanwhile people who steal other spouses and treat people dirty are praised. Get your minds right, Idiots! Any normal, mature person would praise Tom Cruise for the decent guy he is. He’s a professional on every movie set. He loves making movies that WE enjoy watching. He has been a stellar father and if he is gay, he’s not marching in the San Francisco parades or flaunting lovers around his wife and kids. If you hate him because of his religion, then YOU have the hangups. That’s the stupidest reason to hate someone. You must be a gay atheist anyhow.

  • Mission Impossible 4

    Looking back over these posts, gotta say it — you’re either gay men who are jealous that he’s not with you to make you feel better, OR you’re some kind of atheist or nonbeliever who is angry at God. These posts make ZERO sense. You people are stupid and I feel for you. LOSERS!
