Katie Holmes is without a doubt one of our famous girl-next-door actresses, with a career spanning decades. From breaking out in the hit Dawson’s Creek in the late 90’s, to jumping to the big screen and the lead in movies in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, she has kept her career fresh and alive. Holmes is also known for her mega-famous relationships. The leading men she has dated, been engaged to, or married is just as well-known as her acting career.
Starting in the late 90’s she dated her Dawson’s Creek co-star Joshua Jackson. She was then engaged to fellow early 2000’s star Chris Klein of the American Pie franchise before calling it off in early 2005. Then came her most famous role, that of wife to super-ultra icon Tom Cruise. She shocked fans by dating, having a baby, and marrying the lead action actor all within 19 months. It was also slightly shocking as Holmes was only 26 when she began dating the 42-year-old Cruise.
The couple went through some tabloid exploding headlines, including a Scientology take-over, a Star magazine drug scandal, and their sad divorce in 2012, where Holmes feared Cruise would abduct their child, Suri. But Holmes moved on and focused on raising her mini look alike daughter. She was able to stay out of the headlines, and for the most part seemed to be a normal mom doing normal mom things. We figured she would also want to remain single for awhile following her high profile divorce.
She seemed to be enjoying the single life. Or so we thought. Until a photo surfaced in 2015 of the couple holding hands and then again dancing together in 2016 that sparked rumors of a relationship. With their friendship going back to 2006, it’s not impossible to believe these two became something more. What we can’t believe is that in this instant technology age, that they were able to keep it a secret for so long. We loved them and were here for it.
Unfortunately just a few months after it was really, officially, can’t back out now confirmed that they were together, they were reported as having broken up. Foxx was seen holding hands with model Sela Vave not long after the split. But Katie? She seems to be fine with being single. Still not reported to be dating anyone, Holmes has multiple projects coming out this year, including movies Coda and The Secret: Dare to Dream. We like that Katie is taking time for herself and that she will be back on screen where we can watch those killer cheekbones work their magic.
