Katie Holmes Reveals Why She Doesn't Like to Go Out Too Much

Katie Holmes Reveals Why She Doesn't Like to Go Out Too Much

Katie Holmes gives a sultry stare on the cover of Red magazine’s February 2015 issue, on newsstands January 2.

Here’s what the 36-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her life being similar to that in her 20s: “I’m not so different than I was at 20. I still buy too many jeans… I don’t stay stuck on anything too long. I mean, like, any emotion.”

On being a supportive woman: “Women are complicated, in a beautiful way, and they have lots of different roles. I’m inspired by the community of women it takes to help one woman succeed. It’s important to be supportive and have people you can call at 3am. I have a group of friends I call, and my sisters. If I’m thinking about my sister, she will end up calling me, it’s weird. Telepathic.”

On her image: “I think that it’s a very interesting time for artists right now because of social media and camera phones. I don’t think you ever know how you’ll be portrayed. Any story can attach itself to your image. I don’t pay much attention because I’d spend the whole time worrying. I just don’t go out much to avoid it.”

  • dalovelee

    She’s a C List actress who is still trying to make it happen in a world of amazing talented actress like Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt or Jennifer Lawrence…and other pop media culture obsessions like the Kardashians. Or Taylor Swift..She’s just meh…she should count herself extremely lucky..She’s rich from her lucrative divorce settlement and well she’s just rich.

  • treadmilllurve

    She didn’t get much from her divorce settlement because Cruise had an iron-clad prenup this time (Nicole Kidman, now, that’s a great settlement). She’s well off from her TV and originally nascent movie career, which was, according to many sources, f0cked up by Cruise’s advice. I mean, she dropped out of the Batman franchise on his advice, for pete’s sake. Chris Nolan was very unhappy.

  • treadmilllurve

    It looks like that now, but actually, she was doing okay before she did the dumb thing and married him. She was in a major franchise and didn’t have have the “poor katie” or “weird Ho$ robot katie” image she has now. Cruise was poison for her career, both in terms of the advice he gave her and the impact on her image.

  • Jolene

    And who are these sources that say it was him that told her not to do Batman? Or is that just more gossip and assumption? Katie f0cked her own career as an adult woman. She wasn’t a child. However, some even say she really wasn’t asked back in the first place and the story changed to backtracking after it was first said she was fired.

  • treadmilllurve

    True, but I do think she was asked back for Batman as Nolan himself stated publicly he was not happy about having to recast the role. You can google for the quotes; there’s about a million links to him saying that.

  • Nathan

    Katie’s not C-list she is an A-lister and she always will be. She is cemented in for life just like Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock, so haters can hate all they want but nothing can change that.

    Plus Katie is only 36 and she was awesome in Miss Meadows, she still has a lot of time to make great movies.

  • Jolene

    What cemented her for life in your mind? Julia and Sandra are in very memorable movies. What has Katie done besides DC that makes her A list on her own merit? Say it: It was her marriage. Batman didn’t make her A list and even some tv host comment that she would have been forgotten by now if it wasn’t for her marriage. TV shows for teens on the wb channel do not make someone A list. I agree she will have name recognition for a long time but that is not the same as having A list respect for your work.

  • Jolene

    Well some others that post here might remember it better and chime in with what they recall about the first reports being that she was fired. But if she was asked back and didn’t do it, it is her adult decision and she made it.

  • Nathan

    I have no problem saying it was Tom that made Katie A-list but I also think she would have made it to A-list on her own if she had not married him. she was in Batman Begins so she would of been in the second one and she was supposed to be in “Factory Girl” but she dropped out cause of Tom.

    Haters say katie is only famous Cause of Tom but Katie was one half of TomKat and it was Katie that made Tom interesting again, no-one cared about him when he was with his other girlfriends before Katie.

  • Jolene

    ???what other girlfriends? If Naz was real no one even knew about it . The other before was Penny Cruz and the whole world cared about that. People cared about TomKat because it was WHACK…not because they thought it was so awesome and a-list.
    You can speculate that she ‘might’ have become a- list but you don’t know for sure.
    And how do you know she dropped out because of him? Did she tell you this? You must not think she is very bright if you think everything she does she was just some weak willed woman.

  • treadmilllurve

    She wasn’t fired from Batman for sure. She is and was an adult woman responsible for her own choices, but the interviews I read at the time had Ho$ advisers sitting in her interviews and it was well publicised that Cruise had appointed Cruise-approved advisers – with Holmes’ agreement, of course – to steer her career. Right down to the bottom of the ocean. I think she actually thought she was marrying this amazing, powerful HW A-lister, but he did the couch jumping and the rest is history.

  • Mercyneal

    Huh ? A-list? What time did you start hitting the sauce today?

  • Jolene

    um, ok but if she did have those people there- it was her dumb adult choice and I don’t feel sorry for her. I think it makes her look worse when people put the blame on others.
    But for Batman, I recall the others here posting another story so we will see what they say

  • Nathan

    Sofia Vergara i heard was one of his girlfriends and the whole penelope cruz thing wasn’t even close to TomKat fame.

    Michelle Williams made it on her own and Katie was way better than her on Dawson’s Creek so i think its safe to say Katie would of made it without Tom.

  • Jolene

    He dated Sofia for less then 5 minutes and I think there is only one public picture of him. If they would have dated it would have been like the others. As I said above- TomKat was a thing because of how odd it was mainly.
    Michelle made it on her own due to her good acting and good choices. Katie doesn’t have a good track record in those areas. Even post divorce she is not making great choices.

  • nina

    If what you are saying is true, then how come after TWO YEARS and a half of being divorced, and not being given so called “advice” from tom and poisoned by him ,she still doesn’t have a decent career? Why aren’t big director flocking to employ her now. Lastly being in a major franchise doesn’t guarantee success, so many C-listers are in major franchise. Being able is sell a movie by there name is what makes someone a star, and she was never ever able to do that at any point in her career.

  • treadmilllurve

    Honestly I think her name is just associated with “weirdness” now. Only time will tell if she can shake the weird-by-association thing.

  • nina

    Nope, because when she got divorced every one cheered and was all like TEAM KATIE. she is simply boring and untalented

  • nina

    and if being “weird” is bad for your career. How come Tom managed to stay successful.

  • treadmilllurve

    He sticks to a formula and co-produces his own franchise blockbusters. His films are for just about any sort of viewer. IN my opinion, it’s not his name that’s a drawcard; it’s the movies and the quality of the productions. But remember, after the couch jumping, some major producer or whatever dropped him and said he’d committed “creative suicide.” Sumner Redstone, Paramount.

  • treadmilllurve

    Can you imagine Katie Holmes acting as the lead in an action blockbuster? I can’t. Does such a role even exist? As a woman, I do think she’s immediately more limited in her choices. But perhaps she didn’t make good ones when she was semi-hot. The Gift and Thank You for SMoking and Batman excepted, maybe. I just think she’s picked on a lot more than she should be. She can act, but people can’t seem to get past her personal life.

  • nina

    You keep repeating that its her personal life, and I just told you no. People sided with her hard during the divorce.

  • nina

    His name is a draw. He is an Icon. My proof here is that link that says the Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol is the second highest grossing movie ever sold on a single stars name after maleficent https://uk.movies.yahoo.com/maleficent-fourth-highest-grossing-film-sold-single-movie-235700320.html

    btw sumner dropped him for a year then came back to him.

  • nina
  • treadmilllurve

    I don’t think it’s that simple. You go on about selling a movie based one a single name and provide a dubious link to a random blog, but the truth is that Tom Cruise has access to a production machine and is linked inextricably to certain massive franchises, so he has a momentum going on with those. Is it really his name or is it his machine? I don’t think it’s about his personality for him. He’s an industry veteran and a man in a male-dominated industry. It’s not that fair to compare their two careers as if there were a level-playing field.

    Katie Holmes doesn’t have this machine. And describing her as “boring” just proves it’s about her personal image if not personal life. People mingle the two in their minds anyway. Bottom line: I don’t think she’s THAT untalented as people like to make out. People don’t like her for some reason; maybe it’s not her ex-husband or association with scientology, but I think to say she’s utterly talentless is a little unfair. Hey, I’m not a fan per se but I don’t hate her like people seem to.

  • nina

    you were the one who went on and on about how it is completely Tom’s fault. anyway have a good day

  • Bambi

    I would say that she does have a decent career right now. Not amazing, but decent. She consistently works with some of the best actors in the world. She’s been getting good reviews for her latest projects. Many actors would kill for the opportunity to work with both Meryl Streep and Helen Mirren in the span of one year. I’m not saying that her career is ‘on fire” by any means, but I don’t think it’s nearly as bad as her detractors make it out to be.

  • Bambi

    I think the relationship did hurt his career for a while. He certainly went through a rough patch. The difference is that he had been a huge star for 20 years prior to tomkat.It’s easier for people to think about his films, instead of focusing on a relatively brief period of his life. For Katie, this relationship completely overshadowed her career and identity. However, I think she has slowly been taking her own identity back.

  • Jolene

    it wasn’t due to jumping on the couch. That is itself was nothing- just silly but people make a big deal of it. However, he did have a problem with that guy- Sumner when he was talking non-stop about his “religion” but they actually made peace before Redstone died and he said good things about Tom after that. There were rumors Steven S was mad at him too but there are pictures since then showing them hanging out as friends. So not as many people turned on him as some want to think. I do think some did right around that time but when the dust settled it wasn’t as much.

  • Jolene

    Exactly- even after all the hype of “go Katie” nothing ever came of it when she had a chance to show people what she can do.

  • Jolene

    A lot of extras and bit actors are also working with MS and HM. That doesn’t make them successful actors. If Katie Holmes was such a great name or start herself her selling point wouldn’t be she is working with people who are. I don’t think Robert DeNiro thinks his career is going well if he gets to be Al Pachino even if they give him a bit part. I know her fans want to think things are going well for her but I don’t believe for one minute her goal is to be doing these small roles.

  • Bambi

    Well she’s not an extra or bit actor. She had a sizable and significant role in The Giver.( I don’t know about Woman in Gold yet) Yes, it was supporting but not a bit part. She did have a lead role in Miss Meadows and got rave reviews for her performance, but unfortunately the film itself wasn’t well-received. There’s only so much you can control as an actor.
    I didn’t say that things were going amazing for her or that she was A-list, just that her career is decent. IMO working consistently with respected people and getting good reviews for your work=decent. I guess we have a different opinion on what decent means. Agree to disagree.

  • Jolene

    yes but your point was that working with those people was a selling point and it’s not an indication of how you as an actor are doing- I was not saying she was a bit actor but making the point even bit actors work with those people so it doesn’t mean much.
    for A-list then please give Nathan the memo because he keeps insisting she is and that part of why these conversations keep coming up.
    I don’t think Katie’s goals were to have a “decent” career or to be just employed.

  • Jolene

    And her “own identity” is what the poster above was saying that people find boring or maybe just Meh. After the dust settles of the “Go Katie” they weren’t rushing to support her career. People might not hate her but they are more apathetic.She isn’t exciting or what people want to see on the big screen.

  • Bambi

    I don’t know what Katie’s goals were. I was replying to Nina who stated that she does not have a decent career. So I simply stated that I think she does.

    I do think that looking at an actors co-stars is significant as it gives some insight into how they are perceived in the industry. If you are perceived as a “joke” or a horrible actor producers and directors are not going to cast you opposite some of greatest, most respected actors. At the very least it shows that they feel she can hold her own opposite some of the best.

    I thought Nathan made it clear that he considers her A-list in terms of fame/ name recognition. He also admitted that Tom helped with that, so I don’t see what the issue is.

  • Bambi

    Also re: Katie’s goals: She was in a movie called “Wonder Boys”. Years ago, I heard a story about how her agent didn’t want her to do the film as he felt the role was too small for her. So what did she do? She fired her agent and auditioned for the role anyway. She didn’t care about the size of the role. She just wanted to be a part of the film. I really don’t think she is as obsessed with being a star as some people think she is.

  • Jolene

    He admitted that yesterday finally but he usually just says she is A list.
    So if she is so great and so respected I wonder why they won’t give her any real major roles? Just the small ones….

  • Bambi

    Well apparently people still find her interesting enough to keep analyzing her every move and career.

  • Jolene

    ‘interesting’ probably isn’t the right word.

  • Bambi

    I certainly wouldn’t spend so much time discussing and analyzing someone I wasn’t ‘interested’ in. *shrugs*

  • Danelle

    Wiki has Redstone as age 91 and alive. He provided a statement on Dec 31st concerning a new/extended CEO contract at CBS for which Restone is an Executive Chairman – http://www.investingdaily.com/21833/screening-the-future/

    As for Tom, as Deadline pointed out, even with the strong anti-Tom feelings concerning Reacher (book) fans the movie still did well and he is the only actor who has starred in 19 films (20 now) that have grossed over $200 million globally. Tom is the only actor who has done that well globally.

    As Deadline pointed out “Have any other actors put up those numbers” – http://deadline.com/2013/02/tom-cruise-reaches-200-million-worldwide-gross-mark-for-19th-time-437293/.

    Crazy, weird, strange, whatever you want to call him – Tom is still a box office draw.

    Mission Impossible with any other actor would not do as well. The Matt Damon – Jeremy Renner Bourne switch proves that a known story/franchise doesn’t guarantee success (sales).

  • danielle

    Nathan we all get that you are madly in love with KH and would marry her in a NY minute, but A lister she is not. She has A+ name recognition, but certainly is a C lister with her career. Her movies have bombed over and over. Miss Meadows was suppose to be her big comeback. It has a one star rating on Rotten Tomatoes. I don’t think it is going to be released in the theaters anymore. There is only so long her name is going to get her parts. And she knows it. You honestly don’t think she is getting all of these magazine covers just because she is Katie Holmes do you? She has assembled a great and powerful PR/Marketing/Rep team. And they are doing their best to make her relevant and popular. It isn’t working. And BTW these “opportunities” often work as trade offs. If you put KH on your cover we will make sure you get “X” – who WILL be a genuine A lister and with a track record of selling covers.

  • Bambi

    Oh Please. No magazine is going to put her on the cover if they don’t think it will sell. There are plenty of popular celebrities who would be happy to pose for them, so they are not going to risk losing money on someone who doesn’t sell. They might agree to feature a celeb *inside* the magazine as a favor, but not the cover. Katie gets mag covers because people are buying them. period.

  • olivia123

    Most of the covers allude to something of her past with Tom which usually turns out to be a bait and switch. Katie learning to thrive again or People’s Katie’s own story or whatever it was. People are interested in the saga not Katie as a person or actress. If they were they would be flocking to her movies but they aren’t. She isn’t popular now in 2014 (2015).
    I can’t stand Kim K but I can concede she must have a lot of fans because they buy what she is selling despite all the negative comments on the net. Her silly app made a boat load of money. If Kim K put out some cheesy movie regardless of how poor it is I think it would get a lot more then Katie’s Days and Nights did. Katie can not sell a movie even a small one and she is not that popular so putting her on the cover there had to be another reason. Her people are pushing her and people are curious if she will talk about Tom or Suri.

  • danielle

    Sorry Bambi but you are very naive. Katie’s People magazine cover didn’t sell all that well and if you read comments on it most thought the interview was boring and bland. People is well known for trading favors to get what they want. She is more of a model on many covers and I don’t think most people care anymore what she thinks. If she is going for the title of the world’s most boring celeb she is definitely in the running with her inane and vanilla comments. Regardless of what she says her actions speak louder–she wants that mega hit, she wants A lister status in her own right.

  • Bambi

    Danielle was suggesting that her covers don’t sell. My point was that they do sell or else magazine editors wouldn’t keep putting her on them. We can debate why they sell, but they do sell. She had a small role in Days and Nights. Funny how nobody blames the leads Allison Janney, Ray Liotta, and William Hurt. I thought those actors were supposedly more popular, talented, and respected than her. So why didn’t their fans see it? The truth is that there are very, very few actors who can sell a movie on their name alone.

    No doubt Tom has boosted Katie’s fame and that is part of the reason she gets coverage,but I don’t think Tom alone would be enough. I mean, there are a lot of d-listers who have dated/married big stars, and it doesn’t automatically get them major mag covers. It’s been 2.5 years since tomkat ended and most people know by now that she isn’t going to spill the beans. It’ll be interesting to see if she’s still getting coverage in another 2.5 years or so. If she is then I think her critics will have to concede that it’s not just Tom that people are interested in, especially when she never talks about him.

  • Bambi

    I wasn’t really thinking of People mag, which is really just a slightly classier tabloid. I was thinking of mags like Glamour, Elle, etc. Those types of mags wouldn’t put Katie on the cover if she didn’t sell, when there are plenty of big stars who would be happy to pose for them.

  • olivia123

    no one doubts she will be in the news to some degree as long as Suri is under 18. All she has to do is set up pap pictures for that or talk about her a bit to get some press. Even Nathan admitted her name recognition was
    as largely due to Cruise. As for Katie standing alone and her career, yes indeed: it will be very interesting to see where she is in 2.5 years and from where it looks now, it doesn’t seem it will be very good.

    If she doesn’t get a hit she is going to look more and more silly doing pap set ups with Suri or these silly quotes in magazines with no legit work to back it up.
