Great things were expected from Katie Holmes when she left Dawson's Creek, and even greater things when she left Tom Cruise. What happened? https://t.co/f0U23OcOiw— Telegraph Film (@TelegraphFilm) August 8, 2020
Eight years ago, when Katie Holmes left Tom Cruise, observers theorised that she could be the next Nicole Kidman. Nicole won an Oscar two years after her divorce.
Like Cruise’s previous wife, Holmes is a talented actress.
Katie's decision to separate from Cruise, in 2012 felt so thrilling. Harvey Weinstein cast her in two of his movies: the star-studded YA adaptation The Giver and the Helen Mirren/Ryan Reynolds courtroom drama Woman in Gold. She even promoted The Giver alongside Weinstein himself on daytime television
Today, Katie Holmes is starring in killer doll movies (Brahms: the Boy 2), and adaptations of Oprah-approved self-help books (The Secret).
The Telegraph says that Holmes remains encased in the Tom Cruise myth. He's not a mere movie star, he's an icon, like Beyonce. He’s the kind of star other stars are asked about encountering.
