Katie Holmes (born 18.12.1978)
Katie Holmes is an American actress who first rose to fame in Dawson's Creek and is also known for her marriage to the actor Tom Cruise.
Katie Holmes: Childhood
Katie Holmes was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. Her parents were Kathleen Stothers and Martin Holmes (a divorce attorney). She is the youngest of five siblings.
Katie was raised as a Roman Catholic and attended the all-girl Notre Dame Academy. She appeared in school musicals at the nearby all-male school, playing a waiter in Hello, Dolly! and Lola in Damn Yankees.
Katie Holmes: Acting Career
Aged 14, Holmes started attending modeling classes in Toledo. She performed a monologue from To Kill A Mockingbird at an international talent competition and the tape was sent to the casting director for Ang Lee's The Ice Storm. She was cast in the film as Libbets Casey.
In 1997, Holmes reportedly turned down the lead role in Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
When the auditions for Dawson's Creek clashed with her school performance of Hello Dolly!, Katie was permitted to audition for the role of Joey Potter via videotape, with her mother reading Dawson's lines.
Katie filmed Dawson's Creek in her spring break each year whilst she was at school. She later moved to Wilmington, where the show was filmed, once The WB had picked it up. The series was widely marketed and Holmes became hugely popular, with many casting agents looking to cast 'a Katie Holmes' type. She soon appeared on the cover of magazines such as Seventeen and Rolling Stone. In 1998, she was given the role of grand marshal at Toledo's Thanksgiving Day parade.
Katie Holmes' first lead role in a film came in Disturbing Behaviour, released in 1998. Although Holmes described the film as "horrible", she won a MTV Movie Award for her performance. The next year, she appeared in Doug Liman's hit, Go. The same year, Teaching Mrs. Tingle was released, in which she played a student whose teacher (played by Helen Mirren) tries to prevent her from gaining a scholarship. In 2000, Holmes had a small role in Curtis Hanson's Wonder Boys and Sam Raimi's The Gift, which also featured Cate Blanchett and Keanu Reeves. The Gift is notable for featuring Holmes in her first nude scene.
Other film appearances include Abandon (2002), Phone Booth (2002) and The Singing Detective (2003), when she played Robert Downey Jr.'s nurse. In 2004, Katie played the president's daughter in First Daughter . The film received terrible reviews and suffered from very poor ticket sales at the cinema. The most successful film of Holmes' career was Batman Begins, released in 2005. In the film, she plays Rachel Dawes, a Gotham City attorney. She also appeared in Thank You For Smoking, alongside Aaron Eckhart.
Katie Holmes: Personal Life
During the first and second season of Dawson's Creek, Katie Holmes dated co-star Joshua Jackson but the relationship ended on friendly terms. In 2000, she met the actor Chris Klein. In 2003, the pair were engaged but two years later, the relationship had ended.
Not long after the split with Klein, Holmes began dating Tom Cruise. In April 2005, they made their first public appearance in Italy at the David di Donatello Awards. In May 2005, Cruise appeared in the Oprah Winfrey show, jumping up and down on the sofa and declaring his love for Katie. Less than a month later, Cruise proposed at the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Katie Holmes gave birth to her first child, a girl named Suri, on 18.4.2006, exactly one year after her and Cruise had met. Photographer Annie Liebowitz took the first public photographs of Suri, for Vanity Fair. Tom Cruise stated that Suri would not be baptized as a Catholic, as he and Katie were Scientologists.
On 18.11.2006, the pair was married at Odescalchi castle in Italy. The Scientology ceremony was attended by a number of Hollywood stars.

Katie Holmes and Leah Remini are both no longer members of Scientology
Despite the fact that former power couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise divorced three years ago, it seems that the pair still know how to rile each other up. As controversy about Scientology continues to hit the headlines, it appears Tom is angry that ex-wife Katie has reached out to the Scientology enemy.
The former couple still appear to be at loggerheads
With Leah Rimini in the Church’s bad books following her penning a tell-all book, Trouble Maker, about her time as a Scientologist, the Mission Impossible actor has reacted badly to Katie apologising to Remini for the way she has been treated in the past.
Following her expose of her relationship with Scientology last week, Remini said that Holmes' apology statement nearly reduced her to tears.
Following her explosive interview last week about the Church of Scientology, Leah Remini has revealed that Katie Holmes’ apology for causing her any distress in the past “almost makes me want to cry” in a new TV appearance.
Remini’s sensational appearance on ‘20/20’ on Friday was one of the biggest news items of the week, and it prompted an on-air statement of regret from Holmes – which came via a written note and not from a face-to-face interview with Holmes herself – that read: “I regret having upset Leah in the past, and wish her only the best in the future.”

While on TV discussing her new autobiography, she claimed that the Church used her to attempt to recruit Jennifer Lopez.
Ahead of the release of her new memoir next week about her career and her experience with Scientology, actress Leah Remini has given an explosive new interview about the religion.
Remini, most famous for her role as Carrie Heffernan on CBS sitcom ‘The King of Queens’ from 1998 to 2007, was speaking to ABC’s ‘20/20’ on Friday night (October 30th) when she made a series of claims about the religion exploiting her and then dumping her when she had outlived her usefulness.
“Being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself,” she asserted. “You are a person who is anti the aims and goals of Scientology, you are evil.”

Much has been made of Tom Cruise’s close relationship with his new personal assistant Emily Thomas, 31 years his junior, but recent rumours that he’s considering asking her to marry him may now be scotched with the revelation that she already has a boyfriend.
53 year old Cruise is reportedly “smitten” with 22 year old Brit Thomas, whom he hired as his PA before filming his new blockbuster Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, and the pair have been seen to be very close on the set of the movie.
However, a source has told The Sun that Emily won’t be interested in any possible advances as she’s already in a relationship with Alex Roberts, who she’s been dating for five months.
