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.

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.


What do you get the Hollywood A-lister kid who has everything?

Well, luckily for Katie Holmes she doesn’t have to think too hard about this dilemma, as her daughter has laid it out very specifically in her suitably 8-year-old diva-esque Christmas list.

Holmes dished about Suri Cruise’s demands during a sit down with Ellen Degeneres, which airs today—and Popdust has video.

“We are getting ready for Christmas in my house and my daughter is 8-years old. And she already has her Christmas list ready,” Holmes said.

“It’s written out. She’s very organized and I start to like get a little bit of a panic because you cannot screw up talking to Santa.

“You cannot miss any item on that list because if you screw that up that’s years and years of hearing about it. And then probably therapy.”

So, what is Tom Cruise’s daughter expecting to find under the tree this year?

Well, according to Holmes, her daughter is “practical” but “very specific” when it comes to her demands… How specific? Well, there’s the puppy, with “a pink collar that sparkles with the puppy’s name” and….. shoes...for the aforementioned dog.

Yeah, that’s pretty specific.

Meanwhile, one thing that is likely NOT on Suri’s wish list, is the Ellen Christmas CD that DeGeneres kindly passed on to her mom. Now, that’s a gift I would love to see Suri unwrap on the big day.

Katie Holmes is opening up about her divorce from Tom Cruise.

The ’fearless’ 35-year-old wants to let people know she has definitely moved on from the TomKat days of old—and that she doesn’t want the high profile romance to “define” her.

"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,” Holmes tells People magazine. “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, an actor during and an actor now."

Holmes sent the rumor mill into nuclear overdrive, shocking everyone—Cruise included, if reports at the time were to be believed—when she filed for divorce back in 2012, after five years of marriage.

The actress has worked hard to maintain a low-key profile since the split—turning her back on the A-list lifestyle—and, gasp! even flying commercial. And it seems she has zero regrets, sharing that these days, in place of Rodeo Drive shopping sprees, jetting around the world on private jets, and attending endless Scientology meetings, her days are filled with being mom to the couple’s daughter, Suri, 8.

"I'm learning every day, and I have been since the minute I became a mom," Holmes says. "My patience has grown, but between 4 and 6 p.m. ... I mean, wow. Between tickle fights and glitter art, I try to throw in some manners along the way."
