This B/B- list actress all of you know with A+ list name recognition because of she married, is spending five figures over the next two months on PR to land an acting gig or host.
I see infomercials in her future.
Katie Holmes Like You’ve Never Seen Her Before
If Katie Holmes were a (very slinky) cat, she’d be on her fourth or fifth life by now. The youngest of five children, she was raised in Toledo, Ohio, before heading to Hollywood with her mother, Kathleen, in 1996. At 19, in 1998, she landed the role of Joey Potter on Dawson’s Creek and became both hugely famous and a universal symbol of wholesome girlhood. (At New York Fashion Week in February, she was still asked whether she was Team Dawson or Team Pacey.) Holmes ascended to movie roles soon after, starring in Batman Begins and Thank You for Smoking. Then, of course, following an intense courtship, she married Tom Cruise in 2006, seven months after giving birth to their daughter, Suri. She had “ascended” to a whole new level of celebrity, most of it beyond her control. In fact, fame had descended on her.
Cut to 2012. In a breathtaking move of independence, Holmes divorced Cruise and moved to New York City. Starting a new life after the end of a marriage is a gauntlet for anyone, but Holmes was raising a 6-year-old daughter under the relentless pursuit of the paparazzi on top of all that. “We’d go to the park at 6 a.m. just to get outside,” she remembers. With a stubborn and precise determination, she set about carving out a new life.
And that she has done. Holmes is like a Time Out guide to New York, immersing herself in the personal and creative freedom that a big city offers. It’s not uncommon for friends to receive a text from her saying, “You want to go to this boxing class/Alvin Ailey performance/club in Williamsburg?” And professionally, she is well into her next act: At 41, she is starring in the drama The Secret: Dare to Dream, in theaters in April, and is about to direct her second film, Rare Objects, having hustled for months to get financing. Suri, or “my child,” as Holmes calls her, is now 14, tall, strong-willed, and curious. – Source
