Katie Holmes & Jamie Foxx hold hands in new photo: confirmation?

Katie Holmes

Yesterday, I covered People’s gratifying revelation that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx were hitting it for over a year, which we first heard about in October, 2013. People stories are usually true even without photo evidence, but Us Weekly was quick on the draw with an exclusive first photo of Foxx and Holmes holding hands. If you haven’t seen the picture, go look. They seem pretty cozy, right? Us kicked off their story with a couch-jumping joke:

No couch-jumping for these two. As the ex-wife of A-lister Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes was once half of one of Hollywood’s highest-profile couples. For the past year-and-a-half, though … she’s been hooking up on the DL with none other than Jamie Foxx. And only Us has an exclusive first photo of them holding hands and getting their flirt on with a little game of footsie!

The picture, taken in February, offers a rare glimpse into the couple’s undercover flirtation. As detailed in the new issue of Us Weekly, the Woman in Gold actress, 36, has been secretly spending time with the Annie star, 47, since the summer before last, when he wooed her at a benefit in the Hamptons.

What started as a fling, however, has since become a long-term attraction. “Jamie is someone she can trust and have fun with,” a mutual pal tells Us of Holmes, who shares 8-year-old daughter Suri with ex-hubby Cruise, to whom she was married from 2006 to 2012. “She’s getting everything from Jamie that she didn’t get with Tom.”

Foxx, for his part, is equally taken with the Dawson’s Creek alum. According to one insider, he even refers to her using the term of endearment “my girl” — as in, “My girl is calling.”

[From Us Weekly]

This is a sweet story. Absolutely hot, but sweet. Lainey believes the hand-holding photo is authentic, and it definitely looks like real coupledom. Well… Gossip Cop says all of this hookup business is nonsense. Jamie’s rep reportedly says he and Katie are “just friends.” There’s “nothing romantic about their affection” because (maybe) they were reading lines together. Because lots of actors hold hands and rub feet for no reason during casual line readings? Not buying the denial, sorry.

More Katie drama. TMZ reports that she and Tom Cruise do not speak at all, ever. This doesn’t have anything to do with Jamie. Katie’s miffed at how Tom doesn’t visit Suri very often. It doesn’t surprise me that Tom’s still putting himself first — that’s always what he did when he and Katie were married. But at least Suri’s not around all of the Scientology nonsense. TMZ says the former TomKat has “no direct co-parenting discussions. Everything regarding Suri is handled through intermediaries.” It sounds like Tom’s still peeved that Katie had the audacity to leave him. She’s the only person to ever defy his authority.

FYI, Tom is selling off property like mad. His Telluride estate is on the market for $59 million, and he just put his Hollywood Hills home on the block for $13 million. I wonder why he’s so eager to unload his homes — probably because he’s never stateside anymore.

    Lainey doesn’t usually comment on beard situations and usually accepts them as real. Dlisted implied beard sitch. I’m torn on this one.

    • Luca76 says:

      It’s obviously not a beard situation because Jamie’s rep is denying they are even involved. To me it seems like Katie is just one woman on a rotation (are there men on that rotation?who knows) and Jamie doesn’t like his business out there.
      Katie probably doesn’t want to be humiliated if/when there are photos and talk about him with someone else come out- which is what happened last summer there was talk of their hookup then he was photographed with another woman.
      It’s probably a friends that f-k situation with no strings attached (pretty much what People said in glossy terms).

    • Lb says:

      I’m tired of bearding stories. I want the receipts lol. In all seriousness, I am aware that there are rumors that Jamie has had dalliances with men, but I have heard that he’s also been with a lot of women. So maybe he’s just bisexual?

      Anyway, this picture doesn’t seem staged to me (though they may have approved its release), the rumors have gone on for more than a year, and these two aren’t scheduled to be in any production together. I’m going with Lainey’s interpretation on this. I think they’re hooking up, even if casually.

      • ell says:

        the bearding stories are like conspiracy theories tbh. also lainey does comment on supposed bearding/staged situations, like she wasn’t subtle when the guy who plays superman was with kaley cuoco.

        it’s just that bearding is not as common as some people want to believe (and it has imo also a lot to do with some not being able to except that bisexuality exists, so if an actor has ‘gay’ rumours about them they don’t even consider that he might be into both men & women so when he’s with a girl he’s not in fact bearding).

      • Leona says:

        There are only TWO black male celebrities I know without gay/bisexual rumours. Denzel and Jordan. ONLY. Its a ridiculous obsession with black blogs and it stems from deep seated homophobia. They ran with gay Tiger for years before he was busted with dozens of cocktail waitresses.

        There are plenty of straight pervy and unflattering Jamie stories out there from women who arent hiding their identities but then all you need is some anonymous internet commenter to claim that his aunt’s hairdressers sisters bestfriend who is a guy once dated a guy who said that he was hit on by Jamie to set off a bisexual theory. Apparently.

      • kibbles says:

        There have been rumors about Will Smith too.

      • MC2 says:

        Yep! Lb & Leona- the bearding stories seem off to me & do seem to be seeded in homophobia originally. The term always feels off to me & i’ve never used the term personally. The only person I know who uses the term is my friend, who is gay, because he is secretly hoping Brad, Charlie, etc are gay & he might “bump into them” someday. I don’t think people should be saying “blah is gay” or “blah is bi”. Really?! Were you in their bed? It’s a messed up thing to say. My exception is Travolta but that’s more that he’s been accused of assault by people….

      • Leona says:

        Kibbles there are rumors about every black male celebrity from Jay to Diddy to Luda to Busta to Cuba Gooding to Drake to Trey Songs to Usher to …… it would be easier to name you black guys who have not been labelled gay/bi. Denzel and Jordan and for all I know there is probably some site claiming hard that even these two are on the DL.

        Its a ridiculous obsession with black masculinity and hunting down anybody who may not conform that makes them just finger every black guy as gay.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      Jamie is bisexual and katie is one of his sex friend
      Tom Cruise buys some homes in USA because he works in Europe for some movies since some years

  2. perplexed says:

    That outfit is horrible.

    • Kiddo says:

      But I was thinking that she looked more stylish than usual, and she’s standing up straight!

    • QQ says:

      Sis, That Is MY ONLY comment after reading this article: WTF is this chick always and forever wearing?? this makes ZERO sense

  3. CharlotteCharlotte says:

    I don’t care, I love these two together. Love it.

    Co$ is big time in the pooper. The biggest celebs don’t usually get pumped as hard for ‘donations’ (quotations, because that money is forced out of people), but could be McSavage’s BFF has been encouraged to cough up for the next big $ci push to total world Clearing.

    • doofus says:

      I like them together, too.

      also agree about the CO$ being on the downslide…I think he’s unloading so many properties because he needs the capital.

    • StripedSea says:

      Yeah, this one is something I never would’ve imagined; something seems so random about their coupling but now that I see them together they’re really cute.

  4. Christine says:

    I think they approved of the photo release and are going public this way. There’s no way Katie and Jamie would NOT know who took that photo, and I also find it difficult to believe they wouldn’t know it was being taken at that moment. But I do not believe an insider would risk losing their access by taking a secret photo and then selling it.

    Also +10 to the magazine for using “DL” when writing about a possible bearding sitch AND their gossip name should be HoFo.

  5. Dorothy#1 says:

    She looks so much like a young Linda Carter to me.

  6. Hautie says:

    Maybe Tom has a big balloon payment coming up, to his Cult. Oh, excuse me… “his Church”. And needs sell off some properties. Get some cash on hand.

    I did see the pictures of that home way up in the hills. It is a pretty home with gorgeous grounds. But I would be so spooked to live in it. Knowing that all the of Cult’s camera’s and microphones would still be hidden in the air vents.

  7. launicaangelina says:

    I like them together. Katie needs someone that radiates sexiness after being with someone like Tom. He seems asexual to me, and therefore lacking sexual energy and passion.

    ETA: IMHO, this is the same thing as Nicole Kidman needing Lenny Kravitz after her marriage to Tom.

    • Pandy says:

      Jamie needs someone who radiates sexiness! That’s not Katie …

    • apsutter says:

      This was totally me after a major breakup lol. My ex was a total cold fish and always seemed disinterested and “to cool for school” so afterwards I was of course drawn to overtly attractive and sensual men. Not gonna lie…it’s been pretty awesome lol

  8. Loopy says:

    When was the last time Tom was seen with Suri, I am not suggesting he hasn’t in private but it just seems bizarre. I hope children don’t also become suppressive just because their parents chose to leave the cult.

    • NewWester says:

      I believe children would be considered suppressive if they leave the religion. But if Tom really cared about his child he would make time to see her. He is high enough in the CO$ to do what he wants

  9. lisa2 says:

    I don’t know why but I don’t like Jamie.

    She can do better. He just has a vibe I just can’t with

    • Esmom says:

      I hear you, I’ve always gotten a slightly smarmy vibe from him. But she looks really beautiful and happy these days so if it works for her, more power to them.

  10. Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

    He could do better.

  11. Zan says:

    I like this!! He’s hot, go katie!! They seened like both reasonable and nice people, yeah :)

  12. Zan says:

    I like this!! He’s hot, go katie!! They seemed like both reasonable and nice people, yeah :)

  13. MrsBPitt says:

    To me, the picture is very telling…they look EXTREMELY comfortable with each other, like this is not a new relationship! Also, Jamie, is looking at Katie, like he can’t wait to get out of there and jump her bones!!!!!! I hope this is true! Tom’s ex-wife and his ex-co-star! This would make Tommy jump out of his lifts!!!!!

    Also, I can’t imagine Katie being upset that Tom isn’t seeing Suri…I think that is exactly what she wanted!

    • Christin says:

      Katie probably does prefer arms-length parenting, but it would be tough if Suri misses seeing him.

  14. Vampi says:

    FoxHol are very hot together, I hope it’s real. Love him!

  15. Sam H x says:

    It looks like they maybe running lines together cos she seems to be reading something. Both seem very comfortable with each other though. I think Katie & Jamie are just very good friends if they are dating casually then good for her, she needs it after her marriage with Tom.

    • V4Real says:

      I don’t think the photo is staged. It looks like she’s holding a phone in her hand so maybe they’re not reading lines but just relaxing together. It also looks as if Jamie doesn’t have on any shoes. He must be very comfortable with her since his shoes are off.

      Also look how he’s starring at her. That’s a stare of lust.

  16. Betti says:

    Go Katie he’s a hot silver(ish) fox ;)

    I wonder what she had/has on Tom to make him cave in and give her, not only, a quickie divorce but full custody of Suri. I didn’t think he would so willingly let his only natural child out of his control. Part of me thinks that Suri isn’t his and she threatened to go public with it – not that he’s ‘gay’ but that he’s just unable to father children.

    • Jaded says:

      Well I’ve been scoffed at but still maintain that Katie was convinced to have a “turkey baster” insemination with what she thought was Tom’s sperm. Perhaps it was something the Co$ demanded, or even Tom. But Tom may have a heritable form of holoprosencephaly, a genetic condition that can cause retardation, seizures, miscarriages and still births, defects in the development of the middle of the face such as closely set eyes (hypotelorism), and tooth abnormalities (single central incisor). If you look at early pictures of Tom his teeth are a mess, and even with extensive dental work he still has a single central incisor. If you recall, he bought his own ultrasound machine to monitor Katie’s pregnancy.

      Nicole Kidman suffered 2 miscarriages when she was married to Tom, so he may have opted to inseminate Katie with someone else’s sperm, someone who looks a lot like him…. Tommy Davis. Suri is a dead ringer for Tommy Davis, who was the big PR guy for Co$ but is now living in Arizona, apparently booted from Co$, and working as a realtor.

      The fact that the divorce was so fast and Tom capitulated entirely leads me to think that Katie found out that Suri’s genetic father wasn’t Tom Cruise, but the other Tom, and she threatened to leak the information unless he went along quietly with the divorce.

      I may get totally flamed for this but I’ve read a ton on Scientology and wouldn’t put it past them to have arranged this for Cruise because of their fear of passing on the gene for this affliction.

  17. Beep says:

    That must be an old photo of Jamie Foxx. His hairline is a lot further back now.

  18. Emma33 says:

    Is he wearing a nappy in that photo?!

    I did a double take, but I think its just his t-shirt. Cute photo though.

  19. donna says:

    I’m sure Tom is well aware, those weird little Scientology rent-a-cops have already policed this and reported back on their walkie talkies, most likely.

  20. Rhiley says:

    This is such a weird pairing. I realize she is married now, but a year ago if the headlines were, Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz are hookin up and hangin out, I could see them as a match. But Katie Holmes? Very random, although I bet Suri loved the new Annie and maybe that is part of the attraction. I took my niece and nephew and liked it a lot more than I expected. Cameron Diaz took a lot of flack for the role, but she actually does a great job. The Mrs Hannigan role would have been a good fit for Madonna as well.

    • Junior says:

      I agree – Annie was much better than the reviews would indicate. I think Foxx was good in it, although I didn’t care for Cameron Diaz. You’re right, Madonna would have been great in the role.

  21. Skins says:

    Of Course

  22. Cecada says:

    She is so dull and boring that even the idea of being coupled up with the totally hot Jamie Foxx can’t make me interested in her.

  23. Josephine says:

    Smells too much like PR. A story bashing Tom at the same time as one announcing a new love for Katie feels like a PR stunt for Katie. I don’t mind them as a couple at all – just feels very manufactured given the timing.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      Good point.i always thought Fox was Cruise’s good friend so it’s weird.
      Now my now-husband was one of my ex-boyfriend’s best friends before that we date together.One month after our breakup,he went to see me to date me.I refused ,he waited …finally i accepted ( funny because i never liked my now-husband when i was with my ex)

  24. Greek Chic says:

    I like them together. Kate looks really pretty these days, she found her young self again. She was looking old and depressed for years.

    As for Tom not visiting Suri… I believe that divorced parents should be present in their children’s lives but in this case Tom being absent may be better for his daughter.

  25. Lbliss says:

    And they don’t speak anymore bc its against his “religion” not to speak to anyone that leaves Scientology. Kind of like a cult bc no religion I understand would shun family members/children when they leave.

    Happy to see her happy though! She deserves it after everything she had to go through to leave that crazy man.

  26. Chell says:

    What happened to Katie’s clothing line?!?!

    Anyway, I think they make a cute couple! I like her & seriously want to see her succeed & be happy after being married to that weirdo Tom.

  27. mark says:

    Wow what scumbags.

    I doubt if it was a tom cruise hooking up with one of her friends you’d be happy and congratulating them.

  28. Abby says:

    I kinda like them together!!

  29. Paloma says:

    Katie must want Tom to be a more traditional father for Suri, but that’s not going to happen. His first allegiance is to the cult. It might be for the best so as not to influence Suri.

    Decisions have consequences, Katie. She sees herself as a free spirit open to trying different things; therefore, her warning bells were not heeded when Tom roped her in. What a shame. We all remember the story of how several actresses turned him down when offered a chance to work with him/ visit the cult.

  30. Pictures of. Suri, please.

  31. Citresse says:

    Foxx is secretly gay?
    Aside from any sexual orientation, I thought Foxx was good friends with Tom Cruise.

  32. rainy17 says:

    Cute picture of them.

  33. serena says:

    Go get it girl!
    Well, I do hope there IS something romantic between them, except hot and heavy action, because they just look so good together!

  34. Junior says:

    My guess is that Tom has pretty much given up on living in the US. People simply don’t like him there. He still does well with the international audience – his latest movie was a bit hit in Russia and China, for example. Of course, he can never say out loud that he’s leaving the U.S. because he’s supposed to be the big macho American star. But maybe he’ll be a Charlie Chaplin figure. Charlie (who was born in Britain, but did his best work in Hollywood) left the U.S. in the 1950s because his political views were at odds with McCarthyism, and spent the rest of his life abroad, dying in Switzerland.

    • Jayne says:

      That isn’t really true. Not that many people are involved in celeb gossip and the myth that Tom’s career hasn’t done well is just that. A myth.

      NewYork magazine has an article comparing his numbers before 2005 and after- and he has done even better overall.

      Of course no star has every movie that blows it out of the park but even post 2005 he doing better then pitt or clooney ( his age group).

      He won’t be on top forever. He is in his 50′s but even deadline who slams cos at every turn says that Tom is the only star to have over 20 movies that made over 200million.

      Bottom line: love him or hate him- his career is legendary and for a 50 year old man his box office is very good.

      • Bridget says:

        What are you talking about? His movies have all consistently underperformed domestically. Even the movies that have been ‘hits’ have been smaller in comparison to his pre-meltdown numbers. MI3 and 4, Oblivion, Live Die Repeat, Valkyrie – the list goes on, with his only real exception being Tropic Thunder. And unlike his peers, he still sticks primarily to the action genre (with a few dramas thrown in for good measure) whereas that’s not Clooney or Pitt’s bread and butter any more.

      • Jayne says:

        try and stay off the hateraid long enough to do some research.
        For a 50 plus year old his stats are great. Of course at that age he is not going to have every film a huge hit.
        Sorry, but I saw the numbers on the NY Mag article.
        Not only is Tom the richest actor (behind only some Bollywood person and Merv Griffen) he is on the top for box office – only behind like maybe tom hanks..

        here is the ny mag article-

      • Jayne says:

        and here is the deadline article. This is old so it is now 20 movies not 19 that reached that number


        and who cares if last few years he does action movies if that is what he likes.
        He makes good ones- that is why they make money. Lots of sly and arnold movies don’t make money..

        he is ahead of brad pitt by over 2 billion at the box office.

  35. Fan says:

    Thanks to Tom, she is finally ruined.

  36. Angie says:

    Oh come on! They are having a thumb war (kidding).
    I just have to ask, why is it when an actor plays a gay, bi or trans character there are rumors about their sexuality (Will Smith in 6 degrees of Separation, Jake G. in Brokeback Mtn, Jamie Foxx’s Wanda character from In Living Color) but they never seem to happen when gay actors play straight characters? Oooh, I think NPH is really straight ;-)

  37. Aubree says:

    Good match imo. Tom seems like the kind of dad that thinks it’s enough to talk on the phone sometimes.

  38. Imtellinu says:

    The photo is very grainy–so grainy that I bet it was taken from quite a distance and they did not know about it, much less authorize its release,

  39. Amy says:

    Yeah I noticed Suri hardly ever seems to see her dad either. Wouldn’t Tom want the paparazzi to see him spending time with her so we would all think he’s such a devoted dad? Luckily Katie got Suri out of there before Scientology got her into its clutches. I think when Nicole left Tom, Scientology higher ups convinced Isabella and Connor to turn against their mom (or at least wasn’t that part of the HBO Scientology documentary?) which is why they chose to stay with Tom.

    Fortunately this did not happen with Suri. And since Katie is now a suppressive person, I suppose by definition Suri is one too. I’m just surprised he hasn’t fought harder to see his daughter. But apparently his “religion” matters more. Sad.

  40. Busy Bee says:

    The whole TMZ Tom Cruise doesn’t talk to Katie because he hates her and not because she has been declared an SP is part of the Scientology Media campaign against the HBO documentary being released this month. Please, he hates her because she is an SP.

  41. annie says:

    happy for Katie, she’s a private person, personally I think they are ready to come out about their relationship. with tom she was on a roller coaster ride, maybe this time she wanted it to be different , plus I don’t think she’s the type to have live in relationships lasting a few months over and over, like some stars do. there is a quirkiness to Katie, and she likes ”different”’so hence Jaimie and they are both saggies, so they have heaps in common, I say interesting!

  42. Debutante says:

    Jamie Foxx — gay.
