Everyone’s freaking out today over Katie Holmes giving an interview with C Magazine the day before she filed for divorce from Tom Cruise even though she really doesn’t say anything revelatory outside of refusing to mention his name and chalking up having a kid with the largest movie star on the planet as “Eh.” Via WWD:
Senior editor Kelsey McKinnon, who met with Holmes for the interview, said that while the actress wasn’t bragging about her five-year marriage, she certainly didn’t seem to be standing at the edge of a precipice, either. “Going back over the tapes, there were signs: Holmes was certainly very aware of herself, laying a couple cards on the table but never showing her whole hand,” McKinnon wrote. “Most noticeably, the one name decisively absent from her lexicon: Tom Cruise. She never actually refers to him by name over pages and pages of transcription.” When McKinnon asked if having Suri brought the couple closer together, Holmes added, “I don’t know. I mean… I don’t know. People have been having babies a long time.”
Granted, it’s a huge tell that Katie Holmes was able to override her programming and not spend the entire interview gushing over Tom Cruise doing his own stunts because he has magic heterosexual space powers, but it’s not like she sat down and went, “And then I saw him fire a ray gun into a man’s anus while yelling, ‘We’ll get these Thetans out of you even if I have to dig them out with my cock. My hard midget cock.’” Talk to me then.
