In what is probably the most boring celebrity story you’ll read today (news is slow, okay?), Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have apparently been fighting over little Suri. Tom wants to see her more often, but Katie lives in New York and doesn’t think she should keep flying to London, where Tom is currently wrapping a movie, all the time. Instead, Tom should come to the east coast to see his daughter. An argument ensued, Katie got tough, yada yada.
The actress, 34, is worried about the number of hours the six-year-old’s spending flying between her home in NYC and dad Tom, 50, who’s just wrapped his latest film in London.
‘Katie had to put her foot down,’ says a pal.
‘She realises Tom wants to see his girl, but she feels he should work round Suri’s schedule and come to them rather than the other way round.
‘They’ve now agreed Suri won’t have flights longer than eight hours.’
First of all, I’ve flown from NY to London more times than I can recount and it never takes eight hours. It’s seven on a bad day and a little over six if you catch a good tail wind, so I’m not sure how this comes into play. That being said, she’s a tiny person who is presumably going to school and I agree, Tom should use one of those Scientology alien spaceships (that’s how that whole thing works, right?) to come and see her.
This story seemingly had a happy resolution, but it must be bullshit because who in the hell would report it to the press as if anyone cared? That’s like me calling TMZ to let them know that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck couldn’t decide between KFC or Burger King for lunch but eventually Ben compromised and went to BK because he knows Jen loves her Whoppers. I mean, who cares?
Katie Holmes has always struck me as mind-numbingly boring and personality-less, especially after she got with Tom Cruise, and her interview in the new issue of Allure does nothing to dispel that opinion. In excerpts, Katie sounds off on exciting topics like motherhood, career and… world peace.
US Weekly shares some “highlights”:
After finalizing her divorce from Tom Cruise, 50, in July 2012, the mom to daughter Suri, 6, talks about the possibility of expanding her family one day.
“I don’t know,” she says. “I’m open to it.”
She’s also seems to be open to the rumors that she plans to become an attorney. “Well, my brother and father are attorneys, and – we’ll see,” Holmes says. “I like the practical thinking of attorneys.”
And while she’s looking forward to the possibility of new projects ahead of her, Holmes says she hopes this year is good everyone and not just herself.
“I hope this is a peaceful year for a lot of people in the world,” she tells the magazine. “When you look back on the last year, there were a lot of tragedies — Hurricane Sandy, the Connecticut shooting. I just hope it’s a good year for everyone.”
Wow, that’s… deep. So… she’s vaguely interested in more kids, could maybe sorta see herself being a lawyer and wants everyone to be generally chill. I feel like I know so much more about Katie Holmes now! You’d think the real life Carrie Bradshaw would have more to say for herself, but I suppose you can’t win them all.
Katie Holmes recently finished up her run in the Broadway show Dead Accounts, which left many wondering (God knows who cared) whether she’d leave the Big Apple and head back to Los Angeles, the land of bumper to bumper traffic, disgustingly hot weather and In-n-Out. However, rest your weary heads, everyone! The question which plagues our generation has now been solved! Katie loves the east coast and plans on staying put. Wouldn’t you if you’d become the real life Carrie Bradshaw?
From The Huffington Post:
“Katie is in love with this city. After being very isolated while married to Tom, she is now enjoying single life in New York,” says a friend of the actress. “She knows all the cool spots to eat, meet friends or hang out. She’s become a real-life version of Carrie Bradshaw as far as her love affair with the city.”
Katie’s publicist pretty much confirmed the news by simply saying that New York is the actress’s home – makes sense, considering the world’s most fashionable child, Suri Cruise, is already enrolled in school there. But seriously – aren’t Sex and the City references so five years ago? Also, as if, with that wardrobe.
