Thank You for Smoking, Katie
The hero of Thank You For Smoking is Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart), chief spokesman for Big Tobacco, who makes his living defending the rights of smokers and cigarette makers in today's neo-puritanical culture. Confronted by health zealots out to ban tobacco and an opportunistic senator (William H. Macy) who wants to put poison labels on cigarette packs, Nick goes on a PR offensive, spinning away the dangers of cigarettes on TV talk shows and enlisting a Hollywood super-agent (Rob Lowe) to promote smoking in movies. Nick's newfound notoriety attracts the attention of both tobacco's head honcho (Robert Duvall) and an investigative reporter for an influential Washington daily (Katie Holmes). Nick says he is just doing what it takes to pay the mortgage, but he begins to think about how his work makes him look in the eyes of his young son Joey (Cameron Bright).Actors Katie Holmes, 27, and Adam Brody, 26, are part of the young talent in Thank You For Smoking being released nationwide on March 17 ,2006. Above looks like the sex scene between Katie Holmes (Heather Holloway) and Aaron Eckhart that mysteriously disappeared at the Sundance Film Festival. Will Katie's sex scene return to its original editing as shown at the Toronto Film Festival? Director Jason Reitman Scientologists will decide. More pictures in the gallery!

tie remind you for a peacock's feather? SQUAWK, SQUAWK!
