When the tabloids aren’t busy making up stories about Katie Holmes‘ personal life, they often publish false stories about her movie career. Gossip Cop has debunked many bogus reports surrounding the actress’s profession. Here are a few wrong rumors.
In February, Gossip Cop busted NW for wrongly reporting that Holmes was teaming up with Jamie Foxx for a “blockbuster movie” in which they’d play husband and wife. The magazine maintained that the two were meeting with screenwriters to come up with a plot in the same vein of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, the 2005 action movie starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Not only did a source close to the situation tell us the story was made-up, but not a single Hollywood trade publication reported anything about the two working on a project together. Meanwhile, the couple keeps their romance very private, so the idea they’d be looking to flaunt it on the big screen isn’t logical.
Gossip Cop called out the Globe last November for wrongly alleging that Holmes was willing to take any movie role for money because she was in desperate need of cash. According to the magazine, the actress has been struggling financially ever since her 2012 divorce from Tom Cruise, despite him paying her nearly half-a-million-dollars a year in child support for their daughter Suri. The magazine’s story was based on claims from an anonymous “source,” but Holmes’ rep told us on the record it was entirely untrue. The actress’s spokesperson assured us she’s not having money issues or agreeing to any role she’s offered.
Also last November, Gossip Cop debunked a Grazia article claiming Holmes was teaming up with Nicole Kidman for a “Hollywood production.” The tabloid said the two actresses were developing a project together, but keeping it a secret from their mutual ex-husband, Cruise. Holmes’ own rep told us the story was completely made-up, and there obviously hasn’t been any news about the actresses working together. Both Holmes and Kidman have a number of projects lined up, none of which include each other.
Back in 2017, Gossip Cop busted RadarOnline for falsely asserting that Holmes was getting “revenge” on Cruise by making a movie targeting Scientology. The story was published because the actress signed on to star in the film adaptation of the self-help book The Secret. According to the outlet, Holmes only agreed to star in the film “to defy Scientology’s views of therapy.” The premise of the article was very flawed. The Secret is a book about achieving one’s goals by visualizing them, not about therapy. The actress’s involvement in the movie adaptation has absolutely nothing to do with Cruise or Scientology.
And finally, Gossip Cop called out the National Enquirer in 2016 for alleging that Holmes yelled at Cruise for supposedly offering their daughter Suri a role in one of his upcoming movies. In reality, the actor hasn’t been in contact with his daughter since 2013 and he never offered to put her in a film. At the time the article was published, Holmes’ rep assured us there was “no truth” to it. Cruise has remained estranged from Holmes and their daughter in the time since.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
