Katie Holmes voted ‘Best Revenge Body’ by Fitness mag: appropriate?

Katie Holmes

Year-end lists are due to start pouring in at any moment, and these lists generally mean nothing at all but are fun to talk about from a gossip standpoint. For once, I’m actually not looking forward to the year-end movie lists because I’ve seen very few movies this year that are worth bragging about at all. It’s been a decent year for popcorn flicks though, and it would make me sound very unintelligent to talk about how The Avengers kind of rocked my year, so I won’t go there right now. Even though I just did. Dang.

These are some photos of Katie out and about with Suri in New York City over the past week. Katie’s butt looks pretty cute in these pants, right? Now (the most recent) ex-Mrs. Tom Cruise been named “Best Revenge Body” in the wake of her very dramatic divorce from the Xenu disciple in lifts. God, this list of “Bests” is so incredibly silly, but here we go with some more entries:

Katie Holmes

Eat your heart out, Tom Cruise.

According to Fitness magazine, Katie Holmes, the Jack Reacher star’s ex-wife, is in possession of the “Best Revenge Body” of the year.

Their reasoning? “This Broadway star and overall badass mama keeps her shape in check with frequent SoulCycle classes,” they explain. “She was even spotted at a class on her 32nd birthday. Now that’s dedication.”

Suri’s newly-single mom, 33, wasn’t the only A-lister recognized by the publication for her impressive physique.

Jennifer Aniston received the honor of “Best Bride-to-Be,” while Homeland’s Claire Danes nabbed “Best Baby Bump.” (FLOTUS Michelle Obama, meanwhile, was named “Best Arms,” and Blake Lively “Best Legs.”)

Newlyweds Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake were deemed the mag’s “Most Fit Couple,” thanks to their shared love of all things sporty.

Should Katie have won over Katy Perry? Sure, why not. Katy still has the same banging body that she always has (like a cartoon character, basically), but Katie has made some newfound efforts to dress better for her own shape, and she’s a spinning freak too. I think Katie actually has a pretty nice body, and I appreciate that she places a priority upon fitness but also indulges in her cupcakes and Starbucks concoctions as well. Meanwhile, Tom has been spotted “getting revenge” by chatting up a blonde in a nightclub after “inviting a group of young women into the darkened [VIP] section.” Oh, Tom. Katie totally wins this one.

On another note, isn’t it nice to see Suri wearing a coat in frigid NYC? That school uniform is not very practical in the winter though — those poor little legs.

    Still confused why people refer to her as a fashionista… was that wishful thinking created by her publicist??

  2. Jane says:

    Body is the same. She’s just wearing makeup now, dyeing her grays, stressing less, and wearing what she wants.

  3. Belle Epoch says:

    Revenge body? Hardly. Just an excuse to connect a celebrity to their magazine.

  4. Happy21 says:

    I’m sure there are many women who have separated or gotten divorced this year who could have won over Katie Holmes. They should have called it The list of celeb revenge bods.

    I have no idea what Katie Holmes body looks like because she doesn’t flaunt it. And I like that!! Good on her for being conservative and not dressing like slutty now that she’s divorced.

    She still needs to learn to dress better though!

  5. Amory says:

    There are no winners here; neither Katie or Tom are have anything to be proud of, bringing a kid into a PR marriage.

    And a revenge body suggests a changed body, an improved one. Her body looks just the same as ever, and she does not have an admirable figure. She usually looks like a mess to boot.

    Can’t wait until we can move on from the katie pity train.

  6. Amelia says:

    Harsh, much. Not everyone is immune to gravity. And it’s not as if you can really see in these pictures.

  7. Annie says:

    Revenge body? Like Tom Cruise ever wanted that body or is jealous of who will get to have that body next. We all know, Tom!

    No but seriously I’m so happy for Katie. She looks happy, radiant, glowing and FREE. She broke free and got her kid out. I used to worry for her so much circa 2008-2009 when she looked like death. Depressed, hopeless, lonely. I’m very happy for her and I wish her the best. I hope she finds the love of her life now and gets to finally experience what Tom wanted us to believe they had. She deserves true love and happiness. And more importantly, I hope she gets to do whatever she was denied to do professionally during her relationship with Voldemort.

  8. La Calabaza says:

    She has a nice body. Super fit. I remember her last bikini pics and she looked amazing not like an underfed supermodel but like a woman who eats and works out regulary. Her only problem is she doesn’t know how to dress to flatters herself. Her style is improving nevertheless.

  9. Lo says:

    Amy Poehler has been looking good too!

  10. Denver Danni says:

    I wish I were thin and tall enough to pull off those polka dot pants. Adorbs! Of course I’d probably do my hair and makeup but man I love those!

  11. Tiffany27 says:

    Tom Cruise chatting up a mystery blonde?!?!?

    He was probably asking her where she got her shoes.

    • Pip says:


      I haven’t really paid any attention to Tom Cruise since he stopped making proper films but he’s been on the news a couple of times in the UK recently. Blimey he’s a funny little bloke (I know – sorry. You’ve all known this for decades.) He was interviewed after the Manchester United game & he looked pretty rough to me – just like any fifty year old bloke. But why does he grin continuously? &, god, he’s got an unhinged look in his eyes.

      Sorry to be years behind you all but I honestly haven’t paid any attention to him since, I guess, Born on the Fourth of July!

  12. lisa2 says:

    I never understand that whole she has a great body. He is missing that. Seriously. do women know anything about men. Men know what they are leaving. They know what is under the cloths. I know Katie left, but I really doubt Tom is crying over the lost of her “body”. Men may notice that she looks good, but most of them say yeah she looks good, but everything else is the same.

  13. Kats says:

    Bring on all the silly gossip and lists you can get your hands on. Not a good “real” news week.
    Maybe Tom can annouce another love of his life marriage and we can really have something to talk about.
    As for Katie, maybe it’s not so much about the body but the new attitude.

  14. RobN says:

    Is this list supposed to be serious? Other than dying her hair again, she doesn’t look any different than she did before she dumped Tom and she isn’t the first person I’d think of when I think fitness. She looks fine, and certainly a lot happier, but that’s not the same as saying she’s developed some killer revenge body.

  15. Dee Cee says:

    Suri’s burn book is full of woe for either parent..

  16. Hahahahaha says:

    She dropped the heavy load, offcourse girlfriend looks good.Buying Suri a Victorian playhouse and a mini mercedes.You go girl!!

  17. Anguishedcorn says:

    I”m sorry, what? In what universe?

  18. Chordy says:

    Of all “Revenge Bodies” I think Seal is winning hands down. Some people think Bieber, but seriously, in what universe amirite? Peter Facinelli is a homewrecking slutskankwhore who just thinks he’s so great because he’s in Twilight even though he can’t act his way out of a paper bag and he’s a whore. And why does Danny Devito even leave the house? Like would it kill him to get better shoes?

  19. Agnes says:

    Like Tom ever looks at women.

  20. MollyB says:

    I can’t believe Suri’s uniform skit is so short! If that child had to bend down to pick up a pencil, you would see her whole backside.

  21. spinner says:

    Katie has a nice figure but her worst feature are her legs. I think her most lovely assets are her face & her hair. Having said that…what Katie lacks is charisma — the ‘it’ factor. Also, interesting to see that Jen made best bride to be.

  22. Holden says:

    Katie Holmes left Tom Cruise, so wouldn’t revenge be if he… forget it, don’t care.

  23. apsutter says:

    It’s alright, The Avengers was freakin awesome and The Hulk was one of the best characters of the entire year.

  24. Mimi says:

    She’s a beautiful woman but those polkadot pants are fug.

    • Thiajoka says:

      I thought they looked like pajama bottoms. To me, Katie and Kim K. are the two celebrities I’d most like to have work with a good stylist–they are both gorgeous women with nice bodies but neither knows how to dress or style themselves to the best advantage.

  25. Eleonor says:

    I like Katie’s figure, really, but I think most of time she can’t dress herself.

  26. BengalCat2000 says:

    @ Lisa2, I agree. I think of the “Revenge Body” as something we do for ourselves. Hell, my ex could grow a 12 inch dong & I still wouldn’t hit it. EverEverEver again.

  27. jasmine says:

    she’s blessed with the worst body in hollywood!!!!

  28. lady X says:

    The one thing i will say … when Tom was in control she at least knew how to dress… She looks bad all the time … Her hair is too long and not keep … her clothes look cheap and thrown together … and her posture is horrid …. PLEASE GET HER A STYLIST

  29. A Fan says:

    Whatever. It’s whoever is newsworthy and popular at the moment to sell more magazines.

    What’s more notable is how much better the first and third outfits look than the second (and the awfulness she usually wears). Now those are the kind of pants that look very good on her.

    Katie, you listening?

  30. Boodiba says:

    I think her thick legs are her biggest problem.

  31. annie says:

    I like her over all look, she
    s very nice looking, but not perfect, which is nice. I think she accepts her imperfections.
    Looking back over her relationship with Tom, just different things, I think at times it must have been rough .
    Looking at Suri now, going to a normal school, her normal clothes, her little friends,I wonder how she felt inside , about letting Suri choose when she was going to get off diapers, and the bottle, and people criticized her for it, but that was the Scie way, and she probably didn’t have much say.
    Now she’s free , in a lot of ways and it shows.

  32. Sugar says:

    Suri in a coat with a hood that she wears in the winter! Thank. You. Katie.
