Katie Holmes


Born: 18 December 1978
Birthplace: Toledo, Ohio
Best known as: The Dawson's Creek actress who married and divorced Tom Cruise

Katie Holmes became a TV star as Josephine "Joey" Potter on the coming-of-age TV series Dawson's Creek (1998-2003, starring James Van Der Beek). She parlayed her TV fame into movie roles, graduating from schoolgirl parts in movies like The Ice Storm (1997, with Tobey Maguire) and Wonder Boys (2000, with Michael Douglas), to leading parts in Pieces of April (2003, with Patricia Clarkson and First Daughter (2004, with Michael Keaton). Her exposure in the press exploded in 2005. She appeared in the Hollywood blockbuster Batman Begins (with Christian Bale) as well as the well-received independent comedy Thank You for Smoking (2005), and she became engaged to actor Tom Cruise after a much-publicized courtship and a proposal from Cruise at the Eiffel Tower. The press took to calling the couple "TomKat" and reported on their every move. After their wedding in Italy on 18 November 2006, Holmes became a tabloid favorite as Mrs. Cruise and the mother of their daughter, Suri (born 18 April 2006). She filed for divorce from Cruise in June of 2012.
