Katie Gets a Surprise and a Backbone

I may just be able to like Katie Holmes after all. After hearing about how her husband, Tommy Boy, was off promoting his new film on the day of her 30th birthday, I actually didn’t think poorly of him for it, as many people did. He’s an actor, he’s got a movie coming out next week, and he’s got a job to do. He did however, still make it known that he was thinking of his wife on her special day by sending a custom-made cake over to the theater, where she was of course playing in All My Sons, and there was plenty of cake and champagne for the entire cast, courtesy of Tom. Okay, so that’s actually kind of cute but apparently not cute enough to make Katie continue to bow down to his every command. In a recent interview she talked about how strong she was and how she’s not the doormat that everyone thinks she is. I was waiting for her to match her actions to her words and it seems as though now, she has done just that and actually placed herself before her husband. From BumpShack,

“Quite a pickle that Katie Holmes is in right now. The Golden Globes (in Los Angeles) are being held the same night as her last performance in the Broadway show All My Sons (in NYC), and hubby Tom Cruise is laughably nominated for a Globe. His brief comedic role in Tropic Thunder got him nominated and presented Katie with the issue.

Cruise is like the King of the Globes, their most desired participant for TV ratings, bigger even than Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The actor will be only two weeks into the launch of his movie, “Valkyrie, and the Globes show may be his final publicity pitch.

Ina Treciokas, Katie’s press rep, answers the question definitively. “Katie’s decided to stay and her do last show, Ina tells me. “She won’t be going with Tom to the Globes. The cast of ‘All My Sons’ has been like a family and they want to end it together.

Indeed, while some (ahem—Jeremy Piven) Hollywood types have been not totally devoted to their Broadway shows, Holmes has been a stalwart. She hasn’t missed a performance, as far as I know. She’s remained devoted to the play even though she’s got the smallest of the four leads.”

I am happy to see that Katie has seen that her last performance is really more important than a part in a stupid movie that her husband has. It may add to his promotional tour but he’s been doing enough of that himself that he doesn’t need his trophy wife on his arm as well. Good for Katie and I hope to see more things like this from her!
