Katie Holmes: “Every day my husband inspires me”

Actor Tom Cruise holds his wife Katie Holmes by the hand as they leave their house in New York City, New York on June 22, 2010. Tom and Katie made their way to a Broadway play, Fences, after a long day of promotion and taking care of the kids.  Fame Pictures, Inc

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!

[From US Weekly, print edition, August 9, 2010]

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.

    This woman is living a lie.

  2. Cath says:

    Holy shit, what’s happened to her??

  3. d says:

    I quite frankly those two were made for each other and that they’ll be together for a long time.

  4. missy says:

    She does sound pretty bland and boring. To be fair, I don’t think this is a real interview. It sounds like one of those tabloid cut& paste interviews.

  5. Arvedia says:

    In the photo below she looks totally drained, like she’s not herself any more.

  6. She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named says:

    yes, he inspires her to get another nose job.

  7. denise says:

    @ Arvedia

    That’s because Katie has been replaced with a clone.

  8. I love them together, I don’t know what it is that does it. But, I believe that they love each other and that this could last! *eek* I can’t believe it, but I said it!

  9. Sarah says:

    Good gracious, that denim ensemble is a horror. This woman is incapable of dressing herself.

  10. Cruisin Through says:

    I’m generally very skeptical about him since I always thought he was gay, but maybe they are legit? Time will tell.

  11. Green Is Good says:

    In the last picture, it’s looks like Tommy-Girl is whispering veiled threats in his Stepford Hag’s ear. Yikes.

  12. Green Is Good says:

    Additional: Katie needs a stylist. Her taste in fashion is just awful. Spend some Tommy’s money on a stylist already.

  13. meme says:

    I am officially nauseated.

  14. a says:

    whoa, she looks “out there”. compare her eyes in the photos with and without tom. without him she looks happy, with him she looks like she goes to her mental “other place”. scary.

  15. bellaluna says:

    “Every day my husband inspires me…” to what? To be a vapid sounding, minimal-expressions of excitement-using, too-thin, Xenu-brainwashed semi-lifelike non-being. And I mean that in the nicest possible way ;)

    Seriously though, it saddens me to see what a shell of a person she’s become with this Svengali of hers.

  16. Kolby says:

    I cannot believe this woman is only 31 or 32 years old.

  17. Feebee says:

    Inspires her to do what exactly? Throw a party? Look at certain scripts? He’s not inspiring her to do great things because she’s not doing anything like that. Maybe he inspires her to wear dowdy jeans, fugly hair and look out of it at least half the time.

  18. original kate says:

    katie sounds more and more like a 5 year old.

  19. Anti-icon says:

    when does her contract with her husband expire? Do we expect her to be able to leave the marriage with the child? I don’t think so. I sadly think she’s stuck in this union; just like very old school marriages, where the wife was enslaved. Same thing, IMO.

  20. Maritza says:

    If Tom were gay someone by now would have sold a compromising photo or story of some sort to the press. I believe these two do love each other.

  21. Tess says:

    Funny that she’s playing Jackie, a woman who was NOT conventionally pretty, but by meticulous self discipline and an editor’s eye, created herself as an icon of style.

    Katie is much prettier but looks sloppy, undisiplined, and has no knack for creating even a consistent, no less iconic, image for herself.

  22. GatsbyGal says:

    “Every day my husband inspires me” …to consider the warm embrace of death.

  23. lucy2 says:

    She does seem like a shell of her former self. It’s sad, but she’s the one who chose that life.

  24. California Surfer says:

    Whoa, Katie often looks totally frightened when she is around this Cruise dude who comes off like a major @$$hole in the pics – he is always grabbing her hand in a weird uncomfortable way.

  25. Lenore says:

    I remember her saying how, as a child/teen, she had a crush on Tom Cruise, posters on the wall, fantasised about marrying him.

    I guess we should all be grateful that we don’t get the happy ending we wish for, if Katie is anything to go by.

  26. Kiska says:

    Katie has always been dull and she is the perfect molding material for Tom’s Scientologist muse.

  27. Ruffian9 says:

    “Every day my husband inspires me” …to consider the warm embrace of death.

    Lukewarm coffee almost out the nose. Thanks for the laugh, GG!

  28. sapphire says:

    “..inspires me” to go play in traffic, dressed like a Posh wanna-be.

  29. Lynnie says:

    Whoa, she is freaking me out in that last photo!

  30. RHONYC says:

    i just know that i would hate having recognition & attention only because of who my husband is.

    people talk about her because of the ‘man’ she is with, not because of anything she brings to the table.

    she has no credibility as a hollywood actress.

    her accomplishments are dull.

    no one would care if she was not with tom.

    completely irrelevant.

    (yeah, and that goes for you too, jessica boring…i mean biel.)


  31. becca says:

    Wow, this article is redundant (with a cut and paste interview I bet).

    Stepford Wife is being a Stepford Wife. Nothing more to see here.

  32. CB Rawks says:

    Did she say it in a completely flat monotone? That’s how I heard it, in my head.
    I really can’t believe she did this to herself. It’s like making a deal with Satan. And she could maybe have had a continued career in cute Indy films, without ever having sold her soul. Sigh.

  33. Whatever says:

    I remember before Tom thinking she was fresh and cute, but now she just looks vacant.

  34. Victoria says:

    ha ha ha!!! @Bellaluna you are too funny!

  35. lasherola says:

    Eeeek Im afraid Katie’s going to eat my brains!!!!

  36. dre says:

    Jealous much people?

  37. Jen says:

    Dang. I actually liked the movie Mad Money.

  38. mln says:

    I know she loves her daughter but I wonder how much she resents Tom I mean she turned down the Dark Knight to fulfill her contractual obligations and now she is a punchline.

  39. Yasmine says:

    @min good point!! I also wonder how much she resents him. Everything she says is sooo contrived. Such as,’ I love being a mom! Everything about it!’ Oh please, cut the crap. I’m not falling for this one second. She MUST be miserable. And that scientology cult doesn’t help.

  40. Stop Kidding Yourself says:

    More like, “Every day my HANDLER inspires me.” Creepy.

  41. Mouse says:

    Tom’s just plain creepy. But she’s not much better, she looks like she’s on heavy meds in the photos they’re in together. Or she’s been replaced by a programmed android.

  42. CB Rawks says:

    @dre: “Jealous much people?”

    heheh Oh dear, yes Dre! Please set me up with an ice cold asexual alien who will drain my life force and keep me in a functional coma for several years, pausing occasionally to impregnate me and/or force me into awkward photo ops!
    Me want!!

  43. Shy says:

    She looks so OLD in the latest pictures. And empty. Even emptier then Britney Spears. No, sorry, Britney wins. Britney is completely dead inside. I can’t even look at her early clips and pictures. I look at that girl and i remember how empty she looks now. And i want to cry. With that shaving incident she killed her personality. Now she is just a walking ombie.

    But back to Katie. Why did she wore that awful wig. How could she look in the mirror and think that she looks good? I can’t even imagine how Penelope Cruz was dating with Tom Cruise. She is so lucky to escape this.

    And i do wonder how the things with Katie will end. Will they do something like Kidman? They will divorce and Katie will say that Suri is probably better with Tom so she gives him the rights? Of course i don’t know but Katie seems like she doesn’t care much about Suri. You don’t see the mother-daughter love on their pictures. She drags her around for paparazzi pictures but that’s it. She probably is a surrogate child.

    But Nicole had to stay with Tom for 10 years. SO who knows. Maybe Katie is stuck with this forever.

  44. lisa says:

    What happened to her fashion line, dancing career. I never knew her before she married Tom. Never watched that TV show she was on. So I don’t know much of her before Tom. It just seems like she does not know who she is outside of Tom/Suri.. She keeps trying anything and everything. So.. I also don’t see her doing the Scientology visits. But I could be wrong.

    I don’t know. If she is not happy I wish she would leave. But look at Nicole. YOU don’t get to take a lot with you. And I don’t see Tom letting go of Suri. :(

  45. Confuzzle says:

    The Leader is Good.

    The Leader is Great.

  46. K McFarlane says:

    I can imagine if you bought into the Tom Cruise persona that he would be very inspiring to be around. He is consistently positive and optimistic and energetic. Frankly, it would exhaust me but she seems like quite a passive person so I can completely understand that she might find that very inspiring.

  47. Stop Kidding Yourself says:

    Katie looks like she’s about to short circuit in that last photo.

  48. Greta says:

    She also has a very gay vibe in that last photo. That’s one thing I’d find believable about her.

  49. nel says:

    JOEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY *sings* i dont wanna wait for this life to be over i want to know right now will it be? *sings*

    ohhh where is dawson and pacy to come save joey from this hot mess?!!!

    i love this couple, they are a hoot! only because of the “oh tom is wonderful! specially when he gets the turkey baster out and says ‘lets make a baby’ i feel soo special when he talks like that” :)


    katie walks home sees tom making out with will smith on the coach, and walking straight to her bedroom and watching re-runs of dawsons creek when she was “fresh” and wearing gap and urban outfitters.

    OHHHH JOEEY just keep swiping that black AMEX for them louboutins, chanel, armani, versace, chloes etc….girl go broke! swipe swipe swipeeeeeeee it.
