From her time on TV's Dawson's Creek 'till now, Katie Holmes has captured our hearts. Her girl-next-door demeanor keeps her grounded in the glare of the paparazzi's collective flash, but with fame comes the familiarity that she'll never exist under-the-radar again. Once married to Tom Cruise and rumored to be linked to Jamie Foxx, Holmes has found romance on the A-list. But her role as mom to daughter Suri seems to be the star's most passionate position, proving that even one of the most-watched celebs is just like the rest of us. Beautiful, talented, and seemingly down-to-earth, here's more to know about Holmes.

Dawson's Darling

From 1998 – 2003, Holmes played the part of Joey Potter on the popular TV show Dawson's Creek. The teen drama was a hit, bringing real-life situations to the screen that teens of the time could relate to. Holmes became a stand-out star and her career catapulted from there, leading to more TV parts and substantial movie roles.


For six years, Holmes was married to Tom Cruise. Together they had a daughter…probably the best thing to come of their marriage which ended in divorce. Tabloids had a field day speculating on their relationship, how Scientology may have played a part in their split, and whether Cruise sees their daughter regularly. We see pics of Holmes and Suri on the streets and it seems like she's doing fine, but the rumors never rest.

Foxy Lady?

Are they or aren't they? For years, folks have been having fun determining if Holmes is dating, or possibly engaged to actor/comedian Jamie Foxx. Pics of the two looking romantic have emerged, but neither has ever confirmed if they're indeed a couple. Perhaps playing it cool is the way for a celeb romance to last.

Holmes is Hot!

Holmes knows it's all about looking good in Hollywood. Sure, we've seen plenty of pics of the star looking comfy-casual, but when it's time to dress up, this lady looks the part. Here are some photos of Holmes looking red-carpet ready.

Her Ellen DeGeneres is hilarious, her Angelina Jolie is spot on, and her Miley Cyrus is almost as good Miley Cyrus! Even more impressive, she manages to capture all of Kim Kardashian’s annoying-ness in under 6 seconds!

She’s comedian Lauren O’Brien, and she’s the Rich Little of our generation. You don’t even know who Rich Little is; that’s how long it’s been since we've had a good celebrity impressionist.

Not only are her impressions RIDIC, but she does them while driving and not hitting any parked cars or pedestrians, which is a helluva lot more than we can say for Halle Berry, even when she’s just being herself.


What a difference a year makes!

Kids grow up so quick—as evidenced by Suri Cruise, who was spotted in public for the first time in a year over the weekend—and Popdust has photos.

The 8-year-old attended the Kids’ Choice Awards with mom, Katie Holmes, and a family friend on Saturday night, and to say she’s looking all grown up would be an understatement!

Rocking a denim vest, multi-colored skirt and a quilted purse, with her long hair pulled back in a ponytail, the little fashionista looked as stylish as usual—not to mention the spitting image of her A-lister dad, Tom Cruise.

Since her divorce back in 2012, Holmes has kept a low profile, raising her daughter, alone, in New York City.

As Popdust previously reported, the single mom opened up about her high profile marriage during an interview with People magazine last year—saying she doesn’t want the TomKat days of old define her as a person.

“I don’t have any fear now, I don’t have a lot of rules for myself, and I don’t take myself that seriously,” she said. “I don’t want [my marriage] to define me, to be who I am. I don’t want that to be what I’m known as. I was an actor before, and actor during and an actor now.”

Meanwhile, the rumor mill has been in overdrive recently with speculation that Holmes is now dating fellow actor, Jamie Foxx.

The 36-year-old recently purchased a new home in Los Angeles, and according to People, she’s been spotted visiting Foxx, 47, “often” at his home nearby.

The winning pair in the Unlikely Dating award for this week are….Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx!

There have been rumors rumbling for a while that the duo were hooking up and a report has emerged this week that they have actually been dating for over a year.

An “inside source” confirmed the relationship and told People

“This is not some intense romance.  Jamie and Katie are friends and have been for a long time.  They are two adults who are attractive and single, and so apparently conclusions will be drawn.  But contrary to those conclusions, they’re not about to run off and make some serious commitment.”

The ex Mrs Cruise, 36,  bought an Los Angeles based home in August and has now moved in with daughter Suri, 8.  She has been spotted visiting Foxx, 47 “often” at his home nearby, spending “hours together”.

Although the actress hasn’t dated anyone officially since her 2012 divorce from Tom Cruise, she admitted last November that she is open to finding love again.

“I’m a very loving person.  Of course I’m open to finding love again.”

She certainly deserves it after racking up five years with Cruise—apparently the pair are not on speaking terms and only communicate via intermediaries to discuss their daughter.

Well at least she can rely on hottie Jamie to keep their relationship under wraps.  The doting dad of two is notoriously tight lipped when it comes to his personal life.


Break ups are painful, it’s a sad time for all involved but generally you at least have an inkling that all may not be well in relationship paradise

Not so for Mrs Morgan Deane Smith, wife of England cricket star Graeme Smith.

He had allegedly told his wife he wanted to work on their marriage, so imagine her shock when she received a text message he had accidentally sent to her instead of his lawyer saying he wanted a divorce!


She’s not the only one to have been blindsided by a break up – here are some celebrities who just didn’t see it coming.

1. Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Porsha Williams claimed she only found out via twitter that ex hubby Kordell Stewart was divorcing her in 2013. Still she recovered from her shock and devastation by moving on with a mystery married sugar daddy who didn’t take kindly to her bragging all over Instagram about the fabulous life he was providing for her – he dumped and cut her off without warning.

Popdust’s word of advice Porsha – stay away from social media.

2. In 1998 Minnie Driver was happily dating Matt Damon – or so she thought. Settling down to watch her beau on Oprah she was more than a little taken aback to hear his response when Oprah asked him about his girlfriend. He denied he was in a relationship which came as a bit of a shock to Minnie who said;

“It seemed like a good forum for him to announce to the world that we were no longer together, which I found fantastically inappropriate”.

Popdust’s advice to Minnie – boycott Oprah and any Bourne Identity movies to be on the safe side.

3. Poor Richie Sambora, whilst (he thought) happily married to Heather Locklear in 2006 he was on stage and nipped off during the gig to do a prearranged radio interview. The interviewer asked him about a breaking story that Heather had just filed divorce papers in court in LA. He called the report completely untrue and wasn’t upset or fazed, treating it as the usual celebrity BS rumor. He went on to talk about his upcoming Valentine’s Day plans to be at home with his wife and kid. Sadly for Richie he was single come V-Day as completely unbeknownst to him, the rumor was true.

Popdust’s advice to Richie – always insist on having your wife in the audience at the gig so she can’t be sneaking down the courthouse and always have very firm holiday plans.

4. Laura Dern was living with fiancé Billy Bob Thornton when she left their home to work on a movie. She said;

“While I was away my boyfriend got married (to serial husband stealer Angelina Jolie) and I’ve never heard from him again.”

Popdust’s advice for Laura – maybe don’t get engaged to be someone’s fifth wife and advice to ALL women – never let your husband work with Angelina.

5. The marriage of Katy Perry and Russell Brand was never going to get very good odds for longevity, but even Katy was somewhat surprised to receive a text message from Brand saying he was divorcing her on New Years Eve 2011.  That was it. No explanation, no softening the blow.

Popdust’s advice to Katy –stay away from the serial narcissistic womanizers. (However, considering she’s now dating John Mayer for the second time, clearly she hasn’t learned.)

6. Everyone thought Tom Cruise would be the one to do the dumping of Katie Holmes when she’d passed her use by date (just as he did with Nicole Kidman). Imagine his surprise to find himself served with divorce papers in 2012 when Katie was away appearing in a play in New York. Five days before his 50th birthday – ouch!

Popdust’s advice to Tom – karma’s a bitch.


Last word of advice from Popdust to Graeme Smith – always store your lawyer’s number way away from your wife’s on your phone.



We all know that celebrities have a team of stylists and make up artists on hand to ensure their beauty shines through at all times - however there seems to be an area that is being overlooked and ending up…well, ugly.

Other than the basic pedicure available to all us lowly commoners, it seems that the rich and famous don’t get any other foot work, leaving their feet fails exposed for the world to see.

Corns, bunions, over hanging toes, crossed toes, wonky toes, claw toes – the list of foot flaws is endless and makes them human.

But wait! I don’t want human from my celebs. I want to look up to them, aspire to be them and be able to admire their beauty from head to toe.

Sort it out celebrities - time to get fanatic about your feet!
