While the world seemed to be quite fascinated with the secret relationship between Katie Holmes and Jamie Fox, rumors are abuzz that Holmes has a new man in her life—actor and director Justin Theroux. You might recognize that name from when the 48-year-old actor was married to Friends alum Jennifer Aniston. However, there have been a few reports that Theroux has been linked yet again to another high-profile celeb, this time it is none other than Dawson’s Creek actress Katie Holmes.
There hasn’t been any confirmation to the rumor, and apparently, according to Gossip Cop, Holmes’ rep says the actress doesn’t even personally know him. But, we fondly remember back to a time when there was also the denial that Holmes was linked to actor Jamie Foxx for many years, and we all know how that panned out. However, perhaps we will need to wait until we can snag some photographic proof of the two together before making any assumptions about the celeb pairing.
The rumors actually came to light back in October 2019, when an anonymous source was quoted through Woman’s Day suggesting that the Holmes and Theroux were spotted together at a New York City restaurant. Then, the same magazine reported that things were getting more serious for the two. Even more recently, the magazine ran a story which claimed that Holmes had already introduced Theroux to her daughter, Suri, to whom Holmes shares with actor Tom Cruise. But, the problem with these reports is that there isn’t much proof to back up the claims.
In fact, some think that the only thing Holmes and Theroux have in common is that they live in the same city, which is a fact that they also both share with over 8.5 million people. Theroux has been linked to quite a few different women ever since his split with Jennifer Aniston back in 2017, even actress Emma Stone, despite the fact that Theroux and Stone have reportedly been friends for quite some time. Holmes, on the other hand, was linked to actor Jamie Foxx for many years, although the pair adamantly denied a relationship.
Holmes has been known to keep her relationships very private, ever since publicly splitting from actor Tom Cruise. For instance, Holmes and Foxx were reportedly dating in 2013, although the pair did not fully acknowledge the other romantically until 2017 when a photo was snapped of them holding hands. Holmes and Foxx reportedly split back in 2019, so while she and Theroux might happen to both be single at the same time in the same city—could it all be a mere matter of coincidence?
