Katie certain has that “Finally, I’m free!” glow about her. But perhaps I’m just projecting my own feelings; I learned a lot about Scientology during the time I spent assisting journalist Janet Reitman on her book, Inside Scientology, so I’m just tickled pink that Katie has decided to get her and her daughter out sooner rather than later. (If you haven’t read the book, by the way, you must. It’s fabulously written and impeccably researched.) [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
After watching Tom Cruise jump around on Oprah’s sofa like a complete dumbass, I think we all (well, some of us) knew his overly excessive enthusiasm for “falling in love” with Katie Holmes was a total hoax. While watching the video again of Cruise violently shaking a nervously laughing Oprah, it was obvious to many that Cruise’s firm and forceful grip on Holmes would not take hold for long. Plenty of rumors are flying about the TomKat divorce, announced this Friday — these entertaining hearsays could have you jumping on your couch, too! Keep reading »
The rest of the world seems pretty happy about the fact that Katie Holmes has filed for divorce from Tom Cruise. The Telegraph titled their article on the split “Marriage Impossible?” Meanwhile, Amelia wrote, “Well, her contract must be up. Five years after they tied the knot in Italy, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are splitting.” Sherri Reed of The Stir took things a big step farther, writing, “Thank God, Katie Holmes has finally escaped that sham of a marriage … Run Katie run! Suri, take off your heels and run with her!”
So I know that I am in the minority in actually feel pretty bummed about this parting. Yes, Scientology freaks me out and I very much dislike the idea of religion where you buy your way in. But still, these two really did seem in love. And it’s always sad to see that end, no matter what.
After the jump, nine reasons I’m sad that Katie and Tom are no more. Keep reading »
Ding dong the alien husband is dead! Katie Holmes is free at last to roam the earth as a normal human woman again. Rejoice! Now that her marriage contract is up and she’s announced that she’s divorcing Tom, she’s available to date normal human men again. She could pick up right where she left off and go back to her former fiancé, Chris Klein. Only, in the time that she’s been fulfilling her wifely requirements, Chris has been racking up DUIs and stuff. So …probably not. And Tom? Well, we assume he’ll be putting out a help wanted ad for a young ingenue whose career needs a boost. Must love Scientology! After the jump, we have some suggestions for them. Keep reading »
Well, her contract must be up. Five years after they tied the knot in Italy, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are splitting, People magazine is reporting. ”This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” says Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.” Suri is the couple’s six-year-old daughter. In recent weeks, Tom and Katie have not been seen out and about together, with Tom promoting “Rock of Ages” without his wife by his side, and Katie living in New York City with Suri. Cruise was previously married to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman. This was Holmes’ first marriage. [People]
The secret to Tom Cruise’s boyish good looks? Bird poop. The actor indulges in a expensive facials in which nightingale excrement is mixed with rice bran and water, the Winnipeg Free Press reports. “Tom doesn’t go in for Botox or surgery but he does pay close attention to all the new and popular natural treatments,” says a Now magazine source, who adds that “the results have been fantastic.” Read more…
Eww, Tom Cruise, no. No no no no. I realize that Tom is in character as Stacee Jaxx from his upcoming film “Rock of Ages,” but this photo makes me feel really dirty. Are those temporary Ed Hardy tattoos? Why is that model reaching down his pants? Doesn’t she know his manhood belongs to Xenu? And is it just me or did an overeager Photoshopper break Tom’s neck a little? I give this cover an overall grade of “No Fucking Thank You.” [Hollywood Life]
I saw “Rock Of Ages” when it was a tiny Off Broadway show. And then I saw it (a few times) in its bigger Broadway incarnation. I can safely say it was one of the most thoroughly entertaining musicals of all time. And by gosh, now it’s a huge Hollywood movie starring Tom Cruise as aging rock star Stacee Jaxx and Alec Baldwin as kooky club owner Dennis Dupree. Oh, and Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand, Malin Ackerman, Paul Giamatti and Mary J. Blige grace the screen. So yeah, just a couple of stars in this flick. For those of you who haven’t seen the play as many times as I have, it’s about a couple of small town kids with big Hollywood dreams. The story is peppered with your favorite ’80s power ballads. I don’t want to give anything away, but get your Aqua Net out, put on your acid-wash jeans and prepare to throw your lighters in the air and sing along. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be event to remember. June 15, party people!
See Tom Cruise. See Tom Cruise sing. See Tom Cruise dance. See Tom Cruise embarrass himself. This is footage of Tom cutting loose on a Scientology retreat is worse than the most awkward moments at my Bat Mitzvah. I was under the impression that Tom knew the fundamentals of singing and dancing. I guess I was wrong. What happened to sexy Joel Goodsen? Teardrop. [NY Mag]
