Katie Holmes Covers 'C Magazine' September 2012

Katie Holmes Covers 'C Magazine' September 2012

Katie Holmes is stunning in a Tom Ford dress on the cover of C Magazine‘s September 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 33-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her life and future: “I’m ready to take on some more challenging roles. I feel like I worked so much at such a young age that I really wanted to have life experiences. I feel more balanced and like I have more to bring to the table. I always felt like I wanted to catch up [in my personal life] to what I was doing [in my career].”

On designing for women: “I think women want to feel sexy but they don’t want anyone to know they’re trying.”

Writer Kelsey McKinnon on interviewing Katie the day before she filed for divorce: “Going back over the tapes, there were signs: Holmes was certainly very aware of herself, laying a couple cards on the table but never showing her whole hand. Most noticeably, the one name decisively absent from her lexicon: Tom Cruise. She never actually refers to him by name over pages and pages of transcription.” (via WWD).

    I am glad she is free from Tom Cruise! Live free and Strong!

  • janekay

    love the cover, she looks gorgeous!

  • alex

    i feel like she’s slowing coming into her own now!

  • ha

    She looks like Angelina Jolie.

  • annie

    Have always loved her photoshoots. Can’t wait to read what she has to say.
    I would love to know why she really does not like him, and doesn’t even pretend to.
    My little astrology tip for the day.
    They say that someone with a Venus in Scorpio (like Katie) can hate with the same intensity that they once loved.

  • DB

    I think she would look better when she regains some of that weight she seems to have lost. She’d look healthier and more robust, I think.

    That said, she should finally be able to stand on her own and if she can, prove how well she can act and how talented she is.

  • Chiara

    Whoa! Looking good Katie

  • no sympathy

    LOL @ the pity party and victimisation from all of you, kudos for treating women like defenseless beings. She chose it.
    Responsibilization = Empowerment.

  • christine

    not sure why everyone thinks she is suddenly going to be able to act just because she got divorced. she has not shown any talent to date. if nothing else, her voice is horrible, and she has one facial expression.

  • kizbit

    It’s amazing how pretty she can look.

  • Ugh

    This woman is exhausting!

  • wow

    she’s a crappy actress and a crappy designer. That won’t change just because she divorced Tom Cruise for publicity.

  • janekay

    @wow: lol…agreed, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy her efforts at trying to convince herself and everyone else that she is the “shit” now!

  • soi

    Joey and Pacey on the MAIN!

  • African Girl

    The last picture with the purple dress is the best of the lot.

  • Nathan

    Her face is so beautiful.

  • Random

    See her in “Wonder Boys’ and ‘Pieces of April’ – should leave no questions.

  • Love me boy

    She looks very pretty with this long hair and color.

  • Money Talks

    Wow, Katie looks hot. Glad she separated from crazy tom

  • as it is

    Hi guys! I’m back in the market.

  • Lauren

    More challenging roles, eh? Unfortunately for her, she sucks as an actress. Chris Nolan publicly admitted that it was a mistake to cast her in Batman Begins and replaced her with Maggie Gyllenhaal for the Dark Knight Rises. Plus, she’ll be competing with Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman, Carey Mulligan, etc for those “challenging roles” that she wants. Nah, she is a joke now.

  • Lauren

    @Lauren: *the Dark Knight, not TDKR.

  • CF98


    This was why I never bought this was a contract marriage at least on her end I mean she’d pretend to at least like the guy in the end she doesn’t even do that. Why go through all this trouble to leave Tom if something wasn’t seriously wrong with that relationship.

  • Dani

    Too much photoshop.

  • Isha

    Katie was great for her role on Dawson’s Creek, she was the cute girl next door type. She’s fine for television. But I never would think any serious film maker would cast her a leading role. By the way, these pictures are gorgeous. I think she’s prettier as she ages, just my opinion.

  • annie

    I never believed it either , especially on her end, but that list that was supposedly got drawn up of marriage candidates for tom, has always , always left a really bad feeling inside me.
    That’s a form of deception for me , if it’s true, regardless if he lusted after her.
    Everyone pretends in Hollywood, everyone, including Tom, Nicole, the whole lot of them actually.
    Katie never hid how much she loved him, and how proud she was to call him husband.(her words)
    But somewhere along the line, things turned really sour for her, so she doesn’t like him, and can’t seem to pretend , even just a little bit.
    I think it’s more than just scie, I think he did something, that really finished it for her.
    No matter how friendly , kind, gracious, somebody looks on the outside doesn’t mean that on the inside they don’t have their demons to deal with.

    Control and authority is very important to Tom, he actually has said so.
    Remember an interview some months back, she said that Tom is a very exact person, also image is also very important to him, which I guess is part of his job.

  • cara

    @no sympathy:
    so you see it too! her entire “coming out” was very planned. this supposed reinvention of the new, sexy katie. it’s all spin. kind of embarrassing people are buying it hook, line and sinker.

  • dee dee

    Annie your right… Tom did something to her seriously, Katie could have dropped him anytime but 2 or 3 days before his birthday knowing Toms coming back from Iceland happy birthday Tom, peace. Katie should celebrate. This is her time i wish her the best she looks good in the pics and I love Tom Ford everything looks good on her…. They photo shop the HELL out of her pics but she looks good anyway.

  • Hamlet

    She always was free, #2!

    Why are you glad that once happy couple broke up, #20?

    Nolan never said such a thing, #22.


    Bet your life, if Tom Cruise wasn’t a SCIENTOLOGIST, we would be hearing that she is a Wh*re, a golddigger, opportunist, etc.. I still think all of the latter!

  • Melanie

    Lauren, watch “Pieces of April” and then tell me Michelle Williams is better. Puh-lease. Just watch. We’ll see who comes out tops. KATIE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • CF98

    @FLAMINGO: Um people are saying that now besides she signed an ironclad prenup so what exactly did she get out of this marriage besides more fame? If anything marrying Tom was a bad career move(if you call it that)

    If people think Tom is a creep well history is on Katie’s side people remember him dogging out Nicole the last go around.

  • zanushka

    @christine…I couldn’t have said it better!!!!

  • @CF98 & annie

    Tom Cruise bought her lots of opportunities she would not have had before, including an entire clothing line. And she gets tons of money for child support, so let’s not pretend that she’s not coming out way ahead financially.

    You and annie can pretend that she was an innocent victim, but you have no way of knowing what happened. She is just as good at the PR game as he is, and obviously is more than happy to drag Suri out at any given moment to give herself a little more publicity.

    I think they both stink but people are somehow buying her pity party.

  • Gloria

    I totally agree with #10 Christine. I watched Batman Begins the other night and her voice and facial expressions were terrible. So she’s leftt TC and now she wants to make a name for herself. She is just not a good actress. Makeup and hair make her look good, not classy or talented. She’s totally a plain, blah person in my book. Michelle Williams was always the talented one in Dawson’s Creek and she still is way more talented than KH.

  • theresa

    Katie and Tom may no longer be together but they will always be connected through Suri. anyway, she may now be free of Tom but that does not mean that Kaite is a good actress. she was terrible in the Kennedys.

  • karl

    i really dont understand all this, has she done anything the last couple of years? is she really getting all this publicity because of a break up? what a sad world we live in…

  • Just so

    I think most folks, at least those that comment in all the blogs, seem to think that Katie is not a good big screen actress, dancer, singer or fashion designer. I think most of us would agree that she does okay at small screen and is pretty good at modeling. I think if she wants a “REAL” career, one that is not bought by money or her name, she ought to find another television show and continue to model on the side. She is what? 33? She needs to hurry and find her niche FAST. Hollywood is really unkind to aging actresses and unfortunately around 35-36 they start viewing them as old and by 40 over-the-hill except for a few that have power, voice and talent to keep the roles coming in.

  • Waaaaaa

    I think Tom will walk away if he can’t have complete control of Suri and really Suri will be an SP just like Katie. Everybody in Tom’s world is a Scientologist. He has never had a family member leave. Suri is young and maybe he’ll wait to see if he can win her over to his side, but i don’t see how this will work in Tom’s life if Suri chooses to not join his cult.

  • deea

    she looks so much fresh after tom! like she is finally taking care of herself.

  • Anon

    She looks fantastic. Her clothes designs may not be that great and her acting skills aren’t the best, but at least she’s trying. To me that is EMPOWERMENT.

  • Brit

    She looks so beautiful.

  • Suri the meal ticket

    “I’m convinced that she’s the most fame-hungry person the world has ever seen,” says someone who’s worked with Holmes.

  • C

    Confused.. ?

  • yup



  • yup

    I don’t like her anymore… :(

  • Molly?

    What happened to this?
    Weren’t they suppose to start filming last week? It doesn’t show on imdb. I think it was just PR. There’s no movie.

  • miapocca

    highly photoshopped
    and she might want to take pointers..the covered her legs in all allt the picture, which makes her look better

  • miapocca

    @christine: mean that sideways face move and smirk
