Katie Holmes Looks Flawless on 'Elle UK' April 2014 Cover!

Katie Holmes looks beautiful in a Prada coat on the cover of Elle UK‘s April 2014 issue, on newsstands March 6.

Here is what the 35-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On the most important role in her life: “I think the basics are very important: The number one thing is making sure my child feels loved. And good about herself. And that what she does and who she is, is special and important, and should be celebrated.”

On the life experiences she has gone through: “I think all of our experiences bring us to a greater understanding of ourselves and help us realize what is most important. That being said, I have three older sisters and one older brother and I went to an all-girls school, and have always been a fan of women. I support women and all experiences give you more insight into others, as well as yourself.”

On her classic show Dawson’s Creek: “The world has changed so much since then. Social media, and what people are watching. But I think innocence was one of the draws of the show. It was these kids going through first love and heartbreak and growing up and friendships changing. So I’m glad that the innocence still holds up.”

    On the cover they had to use a reference to HIM again. (her new confidence) She will never be known or interesting on her own. She just doesn’t have anything interesting to talk about.

    Nice photoshop btw.

  • Katie Homely

    Hi My name is Katie Holmes and I joined a cult at almost 30 years old. Now I will spend the rest of my life blaming everyone else for my life choices.I spent over 6 years pimping my own daughter on this site and others and willingly played the pr game in my ‘marriage’ but please don’t remember that and please blame my ex for everything.I was “only 30 ” years old. I can’t act sign or dance to save my life and my fashion line was a flop too so I will play the victim game as long as you all let me. Please, it’s all I have going for me at this point. Well, that and talking about Suri at every turn.

  • Nathan

    Looks as beautiful as ever!! Love you Katie!! Don’t pay any attention to the haters their just jealous

  • Katie Homely

    Hi My name is Katie and I am so glad Elle was kind enough to cover up my herpes for this cover.
    Please don’t google “Katie Holmes Herpes” and see how I really look. It’s really gross.

  • Missy

    @Katie Homely:
    Except for the fact that she hasn’t blamed anyone and has never even mentioned her ex in public. Katie haters need to find something else to criticize her for, because she ain’t playing the victim.

  • Katie Homely

    Oh she does.
    She is smart enough to be subtle and let others do the talking but she plays the game. She played the “I’m taking my daughter and running from him and his cult” card during the split. She played it big.She doesn’t have to speak directly about it . She knows how to do the right photo op with the paps.

  • Katie Homely

    Read the article on the Elle site. It says Katie recently left him and his cult. Why not say her cult? it was hers too. She joined it. She plugged it. She said she loved it. She was 30plus at that time. It implies poor girl was the pitiful victim. These are pr type pieces and her people have a say in what is said. They know what slant to take. She enjoys the “it wasn’t my fault” angle.
    You can be president at age 35. It is not young.

  • ladyb

    She’s 35 but it still feels like she’s the 18 year old Dawson Creek actress you want to protect. She sure is aging very well. I like her. The “marriage to Tom Cruise” really changed her – She’s obviously more private but I hope she’s really doing fine.

  • Katie Ho

    Hey Katie Ho here.
    I cannot have any interview without dropping my famous daughter, Suri here. I have to make sure that she’s papped day in day out until some darn gossip sites decide they don’t want to expose kids anymore.
    So now I can only talk about my meal ticket.
    Oh, as for what I learn from my life experiences?
    Oh, I never knew I could be so easily bent from Catholicism to Cof$ and loving it, until my beard contract was over, then I could claimed that I switched back to be a Catholic.
    Also TommyGurl’s black AE card is really nice.
    Thank you Elle UK for letting cover my toes with my hand, my feet are really gross and ugly.

  • Pretty Ka

    What a gorgeous cover!

  • Christy-L

    Too bad it’s all photoshop. Anyone can look great with photoshop.
    @9 You are the perfect example of KatieHolmers who sees her at young Joey Potter when it’s far from reality. Private? You must not follow her much. She is far from private.
    @10 LoL. Glad to see Kho stop by JJ

  • marina

    @Katie Homely:
    You have to add Tommy to that pimping part during their marriage, and when in disney too. Sure he enjoyed those late dinners with the little (considered adult) girl in tow.

  • annie

    I swear, it’s the same person posting over and over and OVER under different names. And what’s more…..I’m going to say it, I really believe it’s a scie person or a devoted fan of Tom or both!

    Love the cover, and the video, really lovely.
    Can’t photo shop a live close up on video.

  • Where is Shelly Miscaviage

    A Scientology member would never ever say anything derogatory about their organization like refer to it as a cult,even in support of it’s main girl Tommy.

  • Meg

    @Katie Homely: NO ONE bought into it because she was defending his every move from day1. She’d be more believable if she was skeptical from the beginning.

  • Meg

    Playing with her toes: gross!

  • BabyMac

    Of course Tom was part of it but the point is that Katie was ready willing and able to be a part and sure seemed to love it.
    Here is a great blast from the past of both daddy and mommy dearest getting the most out of their Suri dollars. Gotta sell that family image now.

  • ANNE

    Answer Toni and Missy in the previous post:
    For all that I have read, my opinion on TomKat: a contract was 05 years and may be renewed for another 05 (as Nicole). Tom is not the biological father of Suri (not fought for custody as he did the foster children).
    Plus, I thought the two together beautiful, the most beautiful couple HW, Branjelina left foot. Could go back, talk like adults and perhaps transform the fake relationship real relationship, people change.
      Why not? I’ll cheer

  • ANNE

    You on above, may explain the difference in beard contract and fouling contract?

  • K-Flop – TFF – 16-27 Apr 2014

    A Spike Lee, executive produced film will be showing this April at the Tribeca Film Festival…nope not ‘Mania Days’… the film is called ‘Manos Sucia’.

    Awww, but sunny-side up K-Flop fans, there is another K-Flop film that will have its world premiere at TFF – ‘Miss Meadows’.

    Yep, It’s in the spotlight section at the TFF site –

    So, it looks like we will see a second set of reviews (see Days & Nights) for a K-Flop film since the period of ‘that which shall not be named’.

    ***THR Days & Nights review – – “Holmes does reasonably well”

  • http://s annie

    @ baby mac
    now why don’t you link the other hundreds of celeb families who have the same pics at disney. a little honesty around here would go a long way!
    you don’t have to like anyone, Tom, or Katie, but let’s keep things in perspective on occasions, i realise that’s hard for some of you, but seeing that a lot of the time you are proven wrong, why not stick to facts, before your nastiness takes over and starts clouding your minds!

  • so….

    If someone has pictures of “hundreds of other celeb families” using their child at Disney in this way please do post them. I have not seen anything like that before.
    Did you look at the link and read the comments? They had special camera people there to take pictures of their “family time’. Everyone knows TomKat took it to a whole new level of famewhoring with the whole family.

  • ANNE

    @K-Flop – TFF – 16-27 Apr 2014:


    Why so much hate for a person you do not know? A “marriage” is made with 02 people. Tom was also wrong. Only innocent Suri.
    Instead of standing in front of the computer, wishing failure to KH, go out as friends and have fun.


  • ANNE



    I agree with SO. TomKat exposed Suri to PR both. Theater, restaurant late at night. The girl wrapped in a blanket. It was a shame. Both are opportunists obsessed with fame and publicity. Innocent that “marriage” only Suri.

    Could you explain me the difference of contracts: beard and encrustação?

  • Caryn

    @annie: well Annie when Pricess Di took princes William and Harry to Disney she negotiated and said how about ten minutes worth then you leave us alone. The JP kids certainly weren’t papped out the way Suri was when they went. Tom and Nicole took Bella and Connor and you didn’t see pics. Tom has bragged about how good Suri looks in some of the pics that the paps take and as another poster indicated they had special photogs there to take the Disney pics which then were coinciidentally posted everywhere?.. While I believe Tom was probably the driving force behind the pics, katie was complicit in the papping out. You’ve said she has a backbone, but she certainly didn’t use it in putting her foot down regarding all the papping of this kid.

  • marilyn

    Tom might have been the driving force but maybe she didn’t “Put her foot down” because she also enjoyed it and wanted the title of “A-list Hollywood couple”. They both were totally into it and as Anne said only Suri was innocent. I think it was Annie who brought up the Melbourne pictures last week and if you look at those Katie is also having a great time.
    We assume Tom was behind it and maybe he did have a bigger part but we really don’t know but it sure seems from her big smiles she didn’t put up a fight. The benefits were great at the time.

  • ANNE

    @Caryn: @marilyn:

    I do not understand because a famous man in the world, feel the need of more and more publicity. That’s disease. Remember Michael Jackson, who planted things until the things turned against him.
    Sometimes I think TC has a need to revalidate his masculinity. Man unresolved.

  • marilyn

    No idea. Addicted to fame? Been that way for 30 years. Hard to let go and not be on top?
    Maybe they over did it since so many didn’t buy it in the beginning they felt the need to keep proving it??? IDK.
    But I do know that Katie wanted the fame, attention and status just as much.
    She left probably because she didn’t want to be in his religion anymore so good for her but as far as playing out the relationship in the press she was an equal partner. She continued to do it with Suri after the relationship ended so it can’t be just him.

  • K-Flop – @ TIFF?

    Will K-Flop be at TFF for the world premiere of “Miss Meadows”?

    Pics and interviews? Looking forward to the reviews.

    sidenote: No indication that she showed for the Palm Spring premiere of “Days & Nights” (Christian Camargo)

  • rubyz

    Cruise does not need any more fame or publicity. I think the TomKat whoring was for Holmes’ sake. Since the marriage collapsed, it is only she who has been photographed AD NAUSEUM with her kid. We’ve rarely seen Cruise with her; ditto as when he raised Bella and Connor. No, say what you will about Cruise … he may be nuts, but I think Holmes is the famewhore in the ex-family.

  • annie

    @ Anne
    Anne, I think you have mixed me up with someone else, because I don’t think it was a contract marriage. For me it just a marriage that went wrong, and I find Scie a bit of a worry, and part of the reason she left , we know is due to Scie because Tom said so.
    I have always believed that Suri is Toms , and as she grows, I think she looks so much like him, but she resembles her mother as well.
    Alot of people here say that she went along with everything, well she did, you usually do , until one day you stop, that’s nothing new, she didn’t commit some kind of crime.
    Maybe the day came ,where she wanted more for her daughter and herself, and she had to leave to do it.
    I don’t believe she was unhappy all the time, and at times I think she was more beautiful when she was with him.
    From what I see of her now is, she’s more open, she’s involved with different people and doing heaps of different things.
    And in Elle mag, she talks about Holmes/ Yang.
    It’s a nice photoshoot, not my favourite, but I like what she says in this one. I don’t disect every word she says, like others do.

    About Disneyworld pics… check out Jessica Alba, Gwen Steffani, Hillary Duff, Michaell Douglas, couldn’t be bothered looking for more. See what poses J Alba gets into.

  • Kho the fameho

    Are you referring to these pictures linked below of Jessica Alba? Sure, she tweeted a few personal pictures. That is not the same as having the whole area shut off for you and having a personal photographer with a lighting screen there to stage a ‘perfect family outing’. Jessica did tweet these and they were personal but at least they seem real and she happen to share them after the fact. Where as with the Tom&Katie pictures it all seems so fake since they were staging it. In that case you never know what is real and what is not since the only thing is clear is the agenda to sell the image to the public.

  • Dare To Be Honest

    @rubyz: Not. So much “more” of a fame whore but she stood to loose more and was using what she had to secure publicity. …successfully – Her name is still an attention grabber.

  • KHo the train wreck

    Cannot agree with you more!
    That’s part of the beard contract.

  • Dare To Be Honest

    @Kho the fameho: I can not believe it was KHo behind this. That sounds like more of a Tom thing with the BIG production. Katie is lazy so her fame whoring is walking to and from Starbucks. Bet that Starbucks loves her!

  • Kho the fameho

    Who was behind it and planned it wasn’t really the point of it all. The point was that she was just as much a part of it and enjoyed it and reaped the rewards of it. Sure, she might not have had the means to go OTT like Tom but that is part of her ambition and why she stayed and loved it. If she had Tom’s means and experience in that area she probably would have used it.

  • Dare To Be Honest

    @Kho the fameho: A must see: Don’t hate anyone as much as I am in relentless pursuit of the truth. Today, KH is my project, next year, it will be someone else. How can people grow if they are living in denial. Maybe that is why she, at 34, seems so childlike. But then when your role models are A listers….. You’ve got Woody, with his wood looking for young children, putting out a Oscar winner. You’ve got 12 yrs. a slave with 2 PROFESSED Oscar voters who never watched the movie and voted for it because it had the word slave in it. One movie nomination was nothing more than pure porn. The hostess slammed all of the nominated with pure honesty and only got away with it because she’s right in the gutter with them. Google Ellen arrives with Portia. At least Matthew’s speech had some integrity. Yes, lots of coffee this morning so if I rambled, so be it.

  • Meg

    You actually see more pictures if you google them at after parties. That MUST conflict with someone who was raised by a devout Catholic and still professes her love and respect for her (mother).

  • Dare To Be Honest

    My goal is in relentless pursuit of the truth WITHOUT JUDGING.

  • hey meg

    what is funny is if you look at the March 2012 pictures from the Vanity Fair after party of the oscars. They were both hamming it up for the photo booth. Then divorce few months later. Didn’t she say her marriage was over 6 months prior to that? Fame-lover couldn’t let that stand in the way of going to the oscars one more time and hamming it up.

  • @ #40

    “My goal is in relentless pursuit of the truth WITHOUT JUDGING”

    ALL YOU DO IS JUDGE! Anyone reading your comments can plainly see that!!!!! You even judge the other posters here. Doesn’t matter whether you’re a Katie fan or not. All you do is judge everyone and everything, even more than most posters.

    Let me clue you in on something. You’ll never get the “truth”. All you know is what you THINK you see, which rarely has anything whatsoever to do with the truth.

    Instead of judging others, which you do relentlessly, why don’t you look inside yourself for why you’re so critical, judgemental and hypocritical. Frankly, that goes for all the other posters here a well.

  • Dare To Be Honest

    @@ #40: How do you know ?

  • Dare To Be Honest

    Yes! My moral judgement has been bent for some time. No doubt, u r picking up on that.

  • Missy

    @Kho the fameho:
    Jessica Alba has done tons of professional shoots with her kids. She even uses them in ad campaigns to promote her company. I’m not saying that Tom and Katie didn’t sometimes stage things for pr, but I wouldn’t use Jessica as an example as someone who is more private and real. I remember tom and katie got a lot of flack for supposedly using Suri as a fashion accessory. Say what you will, but they never took her to any fashion shows like other celebrities including, Gwen Stefani, J.Lo, Jessica Alba and others.

  • @ Dare to be honest

    How do I know? Seriously?? I can read, that’s how.

    Your “moral judgment” is “bent” alright. You’re the most judgmental person here, and rude too! I don’t get it. What makes you think you’re far enough above others that it’s cool to pass judgment on them. Let me be the first to tell you, you’re not above others and you have no room to judge. A moral individual doesn’t get on a site like this and insult and attack the subject of the article or the other commenters. You do that constantly. I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

    JUDGE NOT LEST YE BE JUDGED. Ever heard that? Please cut the moral indignation crap. If you were truly moral, you wouldn’t be here ranking on others. Please stop being a hypocrite.

    As for me, I sincerely cannot stand people who claim to be “moral” and non-judgmental, yet do nothing but be immoral and judgmental, give others a hard time and generally behave like they’re better than everyone else. It’s annoying as hell. Way more annoying than KH being on a TV show. Me? I couldn’t care less. I don’t watch TV, but I do wish her the best…..just as I wish everyone the best, EXCEPT people who feel the need to tell us all how moral and non judgmental they are while acting in an immoral and judgmental manner. That’s you Dare to be Honest, and whatever other names you use.
