  • Mary

    Misty & Rubyz – It would be nice if she could meet someone who is not in Hollywood anyway. She doesn’t belong there, either. She was fine as a teen actress, but hasn’t looked comfortable since then. She seems lost, and nothing she has tried, like the stage work or fashion design, seems right for her.

  • Sincerely Concerned

    Well Nicole Kidman looked lost too.

  • Nathan

    I think she looks beautiful here and i think that 2014 will be Katie’s year. All her movies will come out and it will be Katie’s big comeback.

  • rubyz

    Just one problem with a “comeback.” It implies that she was on top of her game at some point. Woman has never been able to act. Apparently, she was “cute” in DC, but that was a LONG time ago; she is no longer a teenager, and she is no longer cute.

  • siennagold

    hideous sweater

  • hmm?

    I read this below comment on an old thread. It made me wonder if that is why they were able to “divorce” so fast.

    things that make you go hmm—
    (old comment- old thread from 2011)
    “”i read somewhere that when they married in italy they didnt make it official.
    and when they asked their representive about it , they said that once tom and katie arrive in los angeles they gonna get their official marriage license.
    but nobody knows if tom actually went to get one.
    that bimbo, airhead , idiot thinks that she is married to him , while it could be very possible that they are just boyfriend and girlfriend.
    and when they seperate, no money for katie.
    i say: well done tom cruise, you slick”"

  • Susie#1

    Her outfits get worse, and her poses are awkward at best. Maybe she needs a break – like, get out of town, and stay true to herself. She doesn’t have a lot of natural talent and maybe now’s the best time to hone her parenting skills. (Lesson 1 – when it’s 31 degrees in NYC, please button and zip your daughter’s coats; mittens, hats and earmuffs come in handy too.)

  • Wurry

    I actually think she is looking great and has great legs, but perhaps the hair is a little underdone for this event. I will say though that she lost a lot of that character in her face when she got her nose done. I prefer original noses rather than the Hollywood special numbers 1 through 4.

  • annie

    I like her hair shorter, and there are some good pics on Getty images, like her playful outfit, especially the top, but I think maybe some nice boots, with her really short skirt. Not keen on a couple of the poses, but some of the other pics on GI are very nice, especially the ones talking on the microphone to the audience.
    I don’t think that she’s done anything to her nose, but she’s thinner than she used to be, her face body everything was much more rounded, needs a bit of weight, now.

  • K-FLOP – Predictable

    Predictable K-FLOP – still the same smirk, awkward pose, and unfortunate fashion sense.

    Hair, makeup and outfit = NO-GO.

  • LOLA

    This is what 5 years Tom Cruise looks like.

  • Van

    Katie, they’re always shut-ins that try to put down others, their lives are so perfect, that they have so much time on their hands to write mean things about others.
    Katie go on enjoying your life and annoying the hell out of them. If you’re happy with what you wear, so be it.

  • Dare to be honest

    @Van: was thinking the same thing while I was posting last night. 3rd image looks cute

  • getty

    If you look at Getty Images for her tagged photos you can see that Getty also has the walking to school photos of the last few days.

    what is interesting is Getty IS NOT a paparazzi agency. They do not stalk celebs but rather go to events or when called. They are not the kind of agency that chase you down.
    So that to me leads more to the idea that KathiHo is calling the paps daily. Sad girl.

  • Dare to be honest

    @getty: Hey! She could be getting noticed by tweaking and old grazer or wearing meat

  • Missy

    Getty doesn’t stalk celebrities, but they buy photos from other agencies that do. Look closely and you’ll see that the photos you mentioned are credited to Bauer Griffin.

    I think Katie looks good. I don’t think any other celebrity on this site is nitpicked to the extent that she is. It’s like people are desperate to find fault with everything she does. I’m glad that she doesn’t seem to let the negativity get to her and just keeps doing her thing.

  • Missy

    I meant to say that the candid photos on Getty are credited to other agencies like Buzz Photo, Film Magic, Bauer Griffin etc.

  • getty

    @Dare to be honest: yes, but pity she will never be noticed for her great acting skills. she will be the girl that divorced Tom Cruise and walks her kid to school every day.

  • Fact vs Fiction


    ” I don’t think any other celebrity on this site is nitpicked to the extent that she is.”

    I disagree. I think you will find that pretty much every celebrity on JJ, if the post gets any comments, has the same amount (or more if its Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Rihanna, Beyonce, Nicole Kidman, Kaley Cuoco etc.) “nitpicking” on the clothes they wear, their weight, wether or not they have had work done, their hair, performance on a movie or show, who their dating, etc., and many times those comments are B-R-U-T-A-L.

    But, for some reason when similar comments or comments in the same vein as what the above mentioned celebrities receive appear on a Katie Holmes post, they are considered unique, extreme or “people desperate” to find fault.

    For any of the above named actresses-celebrities, is there a post on JJ, for any of them, that there is no “nitpicking”?

    I think Katie Holmes gets her fair share of support, “from she can do no wrong” to the everyday “i like her (style, acting, etc)” along with the full spectrum of detractors.

    Celebrity, is what it is.

  • Missy

    @Fact vs Fiction:
    I guess we can agree to disagree. I know other celebrities get negative comments but there just seems to be something more personal on Katie’s posts. It’s fine to say you don’t like her outfit or whatever, but people act as if her very existence offends them. The only other celebrity on this site who I agree is nitpicked as much or more is Jen Aniston.
    But Katie seems to be enjoying her life and doesn’t let the negativity get to her so it’s all good.

  • @Missy

    Lots of celebs get it but yes, Katie does bug people and get under the skin of some and it’s not just because of TC.
    It has a lot to do with the way she is. She presented herself in the beginning as some cute down home Ohio girl and now comes across much more manipulative and like a user.
    She also seems to enjoy playing the victim with the split. The whole thing was a mess on both sides. Some say she is so great for not spilling the beans but bottom line is she would incriminate herself too if she did as the camera would be turned back on her and her role in this. Only a few are buying the poor Katie fell in love with her idol and he messed her up. She was 26 years old and not a teenager. Most woman are mature enough at that point in life to not do the stupid crap she did and write it off as some teenage mistake. That is not to say Tom isn’t guilty of course he is but the comments were about Katie.

  • ANNE


    It was disclosed that days before the party Scientology in Italy, they officially married in Los Angeles. The quick divorce, in my opinion, has to do with pre-nupicial agreement and parenting Suri. TC has shared custody of their adopted children and does not have custody of their “biological” daughter? It is very strange.
    For others envious of this site .. Katie is beautiful. Great mom. Won the war. I’m waiting for her testimony in the case Bauer.

  • ANNE

    Pat Kingsley:
    Cruise’s Scientology played a role, but only toward the end. Before that, there had been just one serious conflict with reps for the religious organization, “but it was taken care of very early in the game,” says Kingsley. “I felt that they were involved in a story that I was doing on Tom, and I said: ‘It’s not your story, it’s Tom’s. You have to step aside.’ And they did.”
    This story would be marriage to Nicole?

  • THIS

    This article from 2006 says Suri was not baptized as a baby the catholic way. I wonder if she will now get baptized. But don’t both parents have to agree on something like that?

  • rubyz

    @Missy #26: She presented herself in the beginning as some cute down home Ohio girl and now comes across much more manipulative and like a user. She also seems to enjoy playing the victim with the split. EXACTLY! She is a complete fraud, and she accomplished this ALL BY HERSELF.

  • Missy

    People keep saying that Katie is playing the victim. How so? By working, taking care of her daughter, going out to events? I could understand the criticism more if she was going around crying about how hard her life is or badmouthing Tom, but she is not doing that. I know people have accused her of leaking things to the media, but there have been tons of negative stories about her as well. Just a couple of weeks ago Star magazine wrote a scathing article about her. The fact of the matter is that the media loves to tear down celebrities. I don’t blame Tom for the negative press that Katie gets, and I don’t think it’s fair that she gets blamed for the negative press that Cruise seems to attract. Tom’s own actions have turned a lot of people off.
    I think it’s funny that people have such extreme opinions on katie. Either she’s this poor, innocent little victim OR she’s this manipulative, greedy bitch. Why does everything have to be so black and white? Are there no shades of grey? Like maybe she fell in love with Tom, tried very hard to adapt to his lifestyle, but ultimately realized that it was not the life that she wanted for herself or her daughter. It doesn’t make her a saint, but it doesn’t make her a snake either.
    I don’t pretend to know what happened in Tom and Katie’s marriage, but I do believe that they had been separated for some time before the divorce. It has been reported that they he stayed at a hotel when they were in NYC in June while Katie stayed at their apartment. I think the only thing surprised Cruise was the timing of the divorce and the fact that she filed in NY. She knew that her husband was a very powerful, wealthy man, with a powerful, scary cult backing him up. So rather than sit back and wait form his team to crush her, she got the upper hand by filing first and taking control. That doesn’t make her manipulative, IMO that makes her smart. I think some folks are just bitter that this so-called “mediocre” “vapid” “talentless” girl from Ohio managed to outsmart one of Hollywood’s most powerful men.That’s my take on it anyway.

  • Dare to be honest

    @Missy: He must not be that powerful if he got outsmarted so easily.

  • annie

    Oh my gosh Missy, that was a great post!
    I agree about the timing too, it had to be done fast. Her father is a divorce lawyer, and apparently deals in another areas as well, if a dad can’t be there for his daughter, who is?
    Obviously there may have been , and probably were other issues, but one issue came out of the horses mouth, so it can’t be denied, and that was because of Suri.
    I have never heard her play the victim, I only see somebody who gets on with it and lives her life, looks after her daughter, works and , minds her own business.
    And quite a few celebs are starting to wear her fashion label as well now.
    You all criticize Scie, for being a cult , treating people badly, and her hubby is big in it, you feel sorry for the people who have been and continue to be used and abused in it…. yet Katie gets, she was old enough to know better, if that’s not hypocrisy on your parts, I don’t know what is.

  • @annie

    she was old enough to know better. Tom gets critics for being in it too but people are only saying Katie is not a baby who got fooled. Can she not read at 26 years old? She said she was full on COS and loved it.

    If she was such a hero and wanted the best for her kid she would do whatever it takes (EVEN MOVE) to not have her child photographed every day. Others commute from suburbs and work in city so she can too if its that important. But it isn’t- she loves the attention and calling the paps to keep her in the press and playing the poor poor katie role. It’s all she has been successful at. All else has failed so far. LOL.

    Its been a couple of weeks since we saw pictures of Tom and he is by far the bigger star. He knows how not to be seen when he wants to. Maybe he is on holiday. Maybe he is with a new girl but either way he is keeping it private unlike Katie who needs the attention so people don’t forget her name.

  • @annie

    Oh I might add look at her friend Michelle Williams . She is more talented and was married to Heath and look how she is with Matilda. you RARELY see her and its clear as day Michelle HATES it for her to be seen and photographed so she didn’t live in the heart of the city (at least for a while I don’t know where she lives now).
    After Heaths death everyone wanted a pic of them and there were some but nothing at all close to what Katie does.

    Tom is not innocent that is not the point. He and Katie both did tons of photo ops while they were together but the point is katie surely was not just the innocent one that went along with it since she is still doing the same now. If she wanted it to stop it would stop.

  • Missy

    Thanks annie! I didn’t mean for it to be so long, but all this about her “playing the victim” gets really old. Like you said, she is just getting on with her life. I agree that scientology obviously played a role in their split, but I was just trying to be diplomatic. lol.

    @@annie People keep saying that Katie knew what she was getting into.That she knew that he was a scientologist. If you look back at the interviews she gave early on in the relationship she specifically stated that she liked Scientology because you could be both a Catholic and a Scientologist. Tom himself has always stated you be both. Clearly, he lied, because you can’t be both, at least not once you get to a certain level. Yes, Katie should have done more research, but why isn’t Tom held responsible for lying to her? If he lied about that, who knows what else he lied about? Her mistake is that she trusted him. I still don’t get why he didn’t just marry a Scientologist. It would have been so much easier than trying to convert someone else. I think he took it for granted that Katie would simply go along with whatever he wanted, and for a while she did. At some point, she grew a backbone and decided to stand up for herself and her daughter. Can’t say that I blame her, and I wish her the best.

  • @Missy

    One thing about Tom is its pretty clear up front what he believes and who he is. I don’t think he lied to her. Don’t blame shift. she was 26 not 16. Everyone can google COS and find out all about it. Maybe she lied to him by pretending to be the girl next door type all the while she wanted to marry hollywood royalty. Guess it back fired on both of them. Tom is to blame for sure but both are equally guilty in my book.

  • NG

    #29 – THIS – You are assuming that Katie is now a practicing Catholic. When they go divorced there were rumors that Suri was going to attend a Catholic school and then NOT. She ended up going to Avenues which I don’t think is affliated with any religion. AFTER the divorce we have seen Katie and Suri go shopping, museums, get a manicure/pedicure, go to lunch, dinner, catch a Broadway show, at the airport, gymnastic classes, going to school but so far NEVER entering a Catholic church or any church for that matter.

  • annie

    In all my time reading interviews about her or watching interviews on tv, I never heard her say about her being a good little catholic girl, who went to church every Sunday or whatever.
    In the interview with Diane Sawyer , Tom said you can be catholic or jewish and still be a scientoligist,” but we are scientoligists” full stop.
    I don’t believe she realised the depth she was getting herself into.
    Also, he seems to want to change people into something he wants.
    She became buddies with VB, cut her hair, wore up market clothes , or a style she never did in her life, went around with Roberta Armani, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. It’s like she changed to please him, and I don’t think that was her, and as time went on she started to revert back to herself, and perhaps started re viewing her life.
    It’s like in the Vanity Fair article about Nazarine B, she had to have her teeth filed, and change the colour of her hair, and I bet they got most if not all of that info, from either the girl herself or someone very very close to her, who knew all the details. Perhaps even a parent who never forgot what was done to their daughter.
    And about calling the paps, when Katie was in Dead Accounts, the paps never missed being there for the afternoon and nightly peformances, both shows, , they turned up religiously all the time, they knew where she was. Don’t think she calls them because she doesn’t give them the time day .
    @ missy.
    It’s so easy to get carried away, I know, because I go on sometimes there is so much to say, so much that you know and want to write. I mean , you don’t actually know, but you sort of do , if you know what I mean.
    Don’t go away , sometimes I need a friend around here.

    Hi Anne.

  • chris

    Plain, boring and with man legs. No thanks.

  • @annie

    @Annie again you are stating things as fact. We have no idea if Naz was really told she had to do those things.
    Assuming for a minute she did have a relationship with TC its like hearing one side of a break up. She says he dumped her after she was rude to DM (who is a twisted man I agree) but TC (even she admits) never said that he just eventually dumped her. Maybe he knew he didn’t like her personality or something. They (so she says) dated briefly. He wasn’t attached to her yet. Again one side of a break up story is never the whole truth. She might not even know why he didn’t like her and want a relationship with her. But again you posted it as if everything she said was truth and you don’t know.

  • @annie

    also annie it is not uncommon for a gf/wife to befriend the gf/wife of her husbands friends. They weren’t super close they just spent time together. Trust me, VB seemed really not into it. Same with Jlo.
    Its not uncommon to gain new relationships but if she gave up any of her old it’s definitely her fault and shows how much she wanted to climb the social ladder.OR it shows she is easily manipulated or willing to be so she can get what she wants. Normal 26 (and older by that time) don’t give up life long friends that easily.

  • anne

    Katie and Tom should fix new BF / GF. People forget the TomKat and had new subject. 18 months, HW, single, that’s an eternity. TC is an eccentric, spoiled and insecure man. Grow longer.

  • @anne

    And katie is a weak willed silly immature untalented manipulative twat who is still using her daughter to get press.

  • Missy

    I never said that Katie was completely innocent. Just pointed out that Tom was not completely honest with her. I get tired of all of this back& forth. We live in a free country. Just as Tom has the right to practice his beliefs, Katie had a right to leave if it was no longer working for her. The media assumed that she was a devout Scientologist, but I don’t recall Katie ever referring to herself as one. She said that she was interested in learning about it. She knew how important it was to Tom and she wanted to share it with him. Maybe she did genuinely try to convert to his religion, but realized that it wasn’t for her. Millions of people leave their churches for various reasons. Millions of people get divorced for various reasons. Are they all fools who should have “known what they were getting into”? I could understand the criticism if she was going around badmouthing Tom, but she’s not. By Tom’s own admission she has been sending him long, detailed e-mails, keeping him informed about Suri’s life. That way, he has something to talk about when calls her. She doesn’t have to do that. She’s gone out of her way to try and help him maintain a good relationship with his daughter despite the distance. He’s the one who chose to give up custody. I’m not sure what people want from her. I get the sense that some folks here will only be satisfied if she sits down with Barbara Walters and cries about how the divorce is her fault, and she should have known better. That’s just ridiculous. She isn’t bashing her ex, but she doesn’t owe the public an explanation for her actions either. It’s her life. All I see is a woman trying to get on with her life.

  • Dare to be Honest

    @rubyz: Can you be specific?

  • Dare to be Honest

    @rubyz: Can u be specific? HOW does she play the victim. You know what happens when you assume?

  • Dare to be Honest

    Some of these attacks hold no water: It’s one thing to read up about Scientology and at 26 be enthralled in something because your new beau is and another to live it WITH his enterage (mother, sisters and ass kissers). Tom came from a broken home and his father used to beat him. I’m sure in the day to day grind, his little ideosyncrisies began to grind on her. To STAY with him would have played the victim. I read somewhere that when he was in his early 20′s he would parade around in tight undies with strangers to prepare for “his part”. It wouldn’t surprise me if the whole “look at me, I’m an actor” thing has turned her off. Maybe that’s why she dresses so “low key”. Maybe there is a little bit of, “I’m taking back some of my life”. She did live in NYC before ….

  • @48

    I think that is why Tom was so angry about the statement he abandoned Suri. It reminded him of his dad.
    Tom has many faults but I think he is great dad. Even with the COS bs it’s because in his mind he thinks it is right. When you see Suri with him she is always smiling. His older kids love him too and I don’t think he stopped them from seeing Nicole that is rumor.
    So he has issues but being a good father isn’t one of them.
