US Weekly has a kind of throwaway interview this week with Katie “amazing” wild-eyed Holmes, and it’s worth repeating if only to make fun of the robotic way she speaks. Everything is so great and perfect in Katie’s little programmed world, and she hasn’t deviated from her script in years:
Are you loving getting into Jackie O’s clothes?
We have seamstresses creating beautiful dresses that are replicas of real things she wore. Jackie had magnificent style that was appropriate for every event. Armani made two dresses for me too.
What have you learned from the role?
Jackie was phenomenal. She was also an editor and created so much around her.
Do you get acting help from your husband?
Every day my husband inspires me. We’re always creating new things, whether it’s a party or a script or a movie.
Will Suri act?
She can do whatever she wants and she’ll be great!
What do you like best about being a mom?
Everything. I’m so lucky!

Kaiser and I were e-mailing about this, and she had this comment “blah blah amazing reboot great blah magnificent!”
I also wanted to report on Life & Style’s cover story this week declaring that there’s “Baby No. 2 On the Way!” for Katie. She is pregnant while in character as Jackie O. and that’s about it. And while Life & Style claims that “Katie talks to Life & Style” all she did was given them a quick comment while on the red carpet for the screening of The Extra Man. She said “It’s just fabulous [being a mom]. I’ve very lucky. Very lucky.” Then she tapped herself on the side of the head to try and remember her additional talking points but couldn’t bring any to mind and moved on.
Life & Style also has some “evidence” that Katie is pregnant and it includes “She insists on fake cigarettes on set,” “Her clothing is getting baggier,” and “She loves playing pregnant Jackie.” Of course Katie loves playing pregnant Jackie. She hasn’t had a movie out since 2008 flop Mad Money. She does have a couple in the can coming out later this year, though, and we’ll see how they do. Katie is not going to have another baby to spoil. She’s probably counting the days until she gets out of her contract in late 2011. Having another baby will only delay the time until those black credit cards are in her name only.
