I don;t think she is a bad actress and theres no mistaking she was beautiful.....did Tom Cruise's jumping on Oprah's couch and his general scientology ruin Katie Holmes' career? I can't help but see her in roles before she got with him and think....'Oh Katie, you had promise'

I think Tom made Katies' career rather than destroy it. It was the dirty way she left him that, I think, destroyed her career.
She was so cold and did it all behind his back.

In my opinion, Katie didn't help herself by being around all that Scientology crazy lark. She might have damaged her career quite a bit. It's usual for actors/actresses to move onto something else after they've left a long running series. It makes you wonder if she was being put under pressure not to continue acting.

I think he damaged her credibility as an actress yes. And she's not a bad actress at all.

I admire her now. She is striving to give Suri a more normal life. Good on her.

I remember it being rumoured at the time that the producers of Batman Begins were pretty pissed off that a lot of the press for the movie was being overshadowed by the whole Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes thing.

I don't blame her. That Scientology lark is crazily spooky! Katie was in Dawson's Creek for years before getting with Tom, so I'm not sure how he made her career.

Totally agree with Downtonfan.

But I watched an episode of Dawsons Creek recently, where she got mugged, and I thought......blimey, she is famous now for ALL the wrong reasons.

So I can't help but wonder

All she had to do prior to getting together with him was type 'Tom Cruise' into google. The end.

Interesting question OP, I do think when she entered that 'contract' she made herself a bit of a laughing stock and lost a lot of credibility. Sad really, I wish somebody would give her a decent role so she could stop hawking that poor daughter around for papz shots

Thank you. I think people forget she is a stupidly pretty lady and a good actress. I think she could have been just as big as Reese Witherspoon or Amy Adams......and yet shes tabloid rather than credit

She is pretty, I'm not that familiar with her acting but obviously wouldn't have been cast in Batman if she was dia. These days though she is more famous for visiting pizza & ice cream parlours with little Cruise.....saying that I have not seen any articles recently about that nonsense, which is good

Nicole Kidman really soared after splitting up with Cruise, I hope Katie can do whatever makes her happy.

I like Katie, and I'm really glad she managed to untangle herself from Terrible Tom and the CoS crap, but no, she's no Amy Adams. She's a reasonable enough actress but has little range, something that was made clear in her Broadway performances. But that's not meant as a criticism, just that she needs more than her looks to make her mark in film. She's got a couple of things on the go at the minute, smallish films, not leads I don't think, but at least she's working and getting back into the swing of things. But yeah, Cruise is a creativity killer imo and the only good thing she got out of that particular fiasco was Suri.

One really excellent performance in an indie film could really change things for her I think.

She should have reprised her role in The Dark Knight. Maggie Gyllenhal was alright but it didn't have a strong enough impact because she simply wasn't the Rachel from the first film. She, supposedly, turned it down as opposed to Christopher Nolan not wanting her back.

Yes, indie I think is her best option, or a tv role in a quality show maybe? She's got a very good agent so I reckon her best bet is to forget about leads and focus on character roles to rebuild her career, if film is what she's committed to although I'm sure I read somewhere that theatre/musicals is where her real interests lie...

I think Katie Holmes is a good actress .. But I think she stepped away from it film roles because he wanted her by his side .. Now she is free of him I hope her career picks up again and she gets a higher profile for being an actress and not Tom Cruises ex wife

Katie Holmes has nobody to blame but herself. She willingly became Cruise Wife number 3 knowing all about the batshittery and the scientology, which wasn't as obvious as when he was with Nicole. She ensured a massive payout by having Suri. The money she got for the divorce worked out at an excellent hourly rate that even the highest of high class hookers would have been envious of.

She apparently turned it down due to schedule conflict with filming Mad Money.

Not much to argue with there, Nota. The only thing I'd say in her defence is that she really couldn't have anticipated the reality of control-freak Cruise and the CoS before she lived it. And I do think she well and truly paid the price for that. She used look so awful and down-trodden when she was with him. Even her posture is different since they split.

She's gorgeous and I love her style. I also like how the years have fallen from her face since ditching Tom...he aged her terribly, it was awful.

That said though I do think she pimps Suri out to the paps too much. I've never understood why she doesn't get an order to make them censor Suri's face like other celebrities do with their kids. So I don't like that about her, but I do think she's alright overall.
