    No matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to find a single thing to like about Katie Holmes as an actress, a fashionista or a person. Blech.

    It’s ridiculous that Alex is getting some of the best reviews for this movie but isn’t mentioned in any press stuff. That Brenton kid is a worse actor than cardboard.

    “But it’s hard to know what exactly to feel for Holmes, who’s casting as exactly the kind of dead-eyed Stepford wife the tabloids proffered during the TomKat years seems like someone’s idea of a cruel joke.”

    @1 notkatefan Says:

    She is no fashionista by any stretch but she did take advise and scrub up for this weeks events. She has looked better than she has in a long time and the comments around the web were the most positive she has had as far as appearance goes. Even if most of them were “finally, she scrubbed up” type it’s still better then what you normally read.
    Now will she take the hint and keep it up after this week or will she go back to dirty hair and unfit clothes?
    It will be interesting to see what reviews come out for this movie. Can she wing it? Rumor is her role in her other project got cut to just a few lines. If either of these two don’t go great I wonder if Harvey will have buyer’s remorse yet.

    “Mom, by the way, is played by Katie Holmes in a suitably chilly performance as a rule-obsessed judge, intimations of the actress’s own recent brush with Scientology hovering over her scenes like a teasing, troubling mist.” – Washington Post

    “suitably chilly” because of her “recent brush with Scientology”?

    That’s why she is a weak actress, because of Scientology?

    2 years on and still the excuses. Katie Holmes will forever have an out for her bland acting and embarrassing to forgettable performances.

    Just a Comment Says:

    I also agree that Katie is looking better in these last appearances than she has in awhile. I think the appearance on the Today show, Kelly and Michael, the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and even at the premiere was more Katie getting advise on dressing, make up and hair which was more suited to her and she felt comfortable with the choices because in the interviews she sounded more relaxed, more like if she’s having fun, enjoying the moment. I did NOT like the way she looked at The Met with that awful yellow gown and her hairstyle combed that way. These last appearances she looks happier, more confident, and like she having a good time.

    sabrina Says:

    @lisa: I agree totally. I know he had a long term commitment to Tarzan, but wish he could be there for some of the reviews. He is also, not only due to his looks, but his acting, one of the few reasons to watch True Blood Season 7. He and Pam make the show.

    sabrina Says:

    “be there for some of the appearances” not reviews!

    Mikki Says:

    @6 I agree it seems clear someone is making her listen. Maybe Harvey and his wife had a talk with her and told her if he going to try and help her she has to do her part and brush her hair at least.

    Thornton Says:

    Lol, more lies to try to make it sound different than the actual review Danielle. The actual review was very positive towards Katie’s performance. I noticed you cut out the very next sentence, ” Mom, by the way, is played by Katie Holmes in a suitably chilly performance as a rule-obsessed judge, intimations of the actress’s own recent brush with Scientology hovering over her scenes like a teasing, troubling mist.

    Jonas’s father, equally skillfully portrayed by Alexander Skarsgard, features prominently in “The Giver’s” most disturbing sequence, in which Jonas witnesses one of the grisly realities beneath the anodyne double-speak that he’s now beginning to question. ” As you can see they thought Katie’s performance was skillfully portrayed and they liked the film. It’s sad that people hate others so bad they search for anything they can find to make them look bad, and if they can’t find anything they just lie.

    whatever Says:

    Thornton I am not Daniella but I can see the reason she cut off that part is because they changed the subject to the next actor. She cut and pasted the part that was directly about Katie.
    That was hardly a lie

  12. 12
    Thornton Says:

    Yes it was about the next actor but it shows they thought her performance was skillful, just like Alexander’s performance. Besides which the words suitably chilly performance implies a good performance not a bad performance as she said. So why say the opposite unless you want people to believe a lie.

    Effy Says:

    Taylor is only getting press in this movie because she’s already a huge star, even if her role is MAYBE five minutes long. If it was another actor, they wouldn’t even be asked to attend such events.

  14. 14
    whatever Says:

    No idea maybe she will explain what she meant exactly but I don’t think she was lying.
    So far the reviews are mixed. Many don’t mention her at all. Those that do tend to make a cult joke either directly or indirectly.
    It’s still early and only a few reviews so too early to see a consensus of her performance.
    However, if overall people walk away with just thinking of her in scientology and that is why she can play a robotic character that won’t help her either in public perception.

    Just a Comment Says:

    They are going for a younger demographic audience (Hunger Games, Divergent, etc) and trying to bring along the Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep loyal fans.

    Tap Dancer Says:

    Did Katie REALLY say she could tap dance on SNL??
    On another blog someone posted this. Around 3 min she talks about Katie Holmes telling them she can tap dance but she wasn’t good. LOL. How many things has she claimed to do?

    Lainey Gossip Says:

    Lainey post another video here below of her dancing and said “remember when she thought she can dance” among other comments from Lainey…….

    “Katie was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night after the premiere. Fallon’s silly games always crack me up. Even when sanctimonious Julia Roberts is playing –

    Last night Fallon asked Katie to make f-cked up faces with him on a tablet. Should have been a riot, right? Oh but he had to work for every single laugh, didn’t he? Her energy is just so… DULL. What could have been a hysterical segment was, well, almost flat, if not for Jimmy sweating for it, sweating to make something out of, well, out of Katie Holmes. There are guests who make it easy for you. And then there are the nights when you have to throw everything at the camera.”

    @Thornton:
    How about this – “Katie Holmes has never been more wooden, not since Dawson’s Creek that is. Sadly, this is also the first time in forever that one can say that Meryl Streep actually phoned in a performance.”

    No reading into this review

    Watching What Lies Beneath…..I could so see her playing a remake of it, or The Hand That Rocks The Cradle. Seriously; as she grows older, ….those vacant eyes. Harvey’s not tapping into her true potential.

    To @1 Says:

    Be ready to be accused of being Jealous. lol
    Her fans think anyone who doesn’t believe she is pretty can only be jealous as if there can be no other reason to not see what they see. Truth is they are in the minority as far as her looks and acting. It’s not just JJ posters it’s pretty much all over. Some do think she is pretty no doubt but most are “meh” or she is average at best and overrated and only hyped in the media/pr but you wouldn’t look twice if you saw her on the street

    @Lainey Gossip:

    Lainey is crazy I thought Katie was awesome on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon she was cute, funny and sweet.

    And I loved when Katie did the get happy song and dance her singing voice was great her dancing was good and her legs looked supper sexy.

    Katie is a born entertainer. I love her. she is the best.

    Jack Says:

    @To @1:
    It is not a question of jealousy, but most do consider her talented and not just some along with her fans. (The General public does) and we are not talking about commentors on gossip sites.

    77777 Says:

    Yea whatever Jack, you have no idea if the “general public” does if not for comments on boards. Did you interview the “general public” to find this out?
    Gossip sites or regular news sites the comments are usually along the lines of “why is anyone still talking about her she doesn’t do anything noteworthy”.

    annie Says:

    Not jealous, just hateful people, and if it wasn’t for the name changing , only 2 or 3 originals!

    @Annie Says:

    @annie: and how many non-naming changing Katie Holmes fans? 2 or 3? evens it out, no?
