Katie Holmes Doesn’t “Feel Like A Woman” Just Yet

Katie Holmes has always kept it pretty low key when it comes to the press, and she doesn’t share much about her personal life publicly, which I actually really respect. Take, for instance, the fact that she’s been dating Jamie Foxx for a while and they actually seem pretty happy together. Katie’s never publicly acknowledged that relationship, and she’s certainly not going to tell you – or the likes of More magazine – whether or not she ever plans to get married again. After all, she’s not an adult, she’s just a wee little girl!

“That’s not something I want to answer … [I don’t] have a five or 10-year plan. I feel like I’m still a teenager in a lot of ways. I do a lot of things I did then. I paint, I color. I cook sometimes. I still feel like a girl. I don’t quite feel like a woman, maybe because I’m the baby of my family. I’ll probably be 90 and feel like, ‘Not a woman yet!’ Ha!”

I don’t really know what that answer has to do with anything – her clever way of evading the question, I suppose? – but it sounds corny. Don’t infantalize yourself, girl. If you don’t want to talk about the fact that you’re shacked up with Jamie Foxx, just say it! But you’re not a teenager just because you cook (because, uh, what?) or even because you color. Hello, adult coloring is the new Big Thing! It just doesn’t make any sense.

To be honest, the poor woman is probably still traumatized from her time being married to Tom Cruise, and she may even have some kind of gag order where she can’t publicly confirm any romance with anyone else for the rest of her life or some other crazy shit. I don’t know, Scientology is weird!

  • I don’t know- I’m not really taking her comments literally like shes trying to be a teenager. I am an adult woman-I have a home, car, job, I take care of my pets (no kids haha)- but sometimes I don’t really feel like an adult or even that I know what I’m doing half the time even though I know I am one. I hear old people say all the time that their bodies change but their mind is still that of a teenager. I don’t think its that crazy of a feeling/statement?

    • I know exactly what you mean. In a Women’s Studies class, the professor asked each of us what we saw when we looked in the mirror. I said “a girl.” She said “a woman, okay.” I replied “wait, no, I see a girl.” Of course, I didn’t mean a teenager or tweener. The term “woman,” to me meant like my Mom or Grandmother or the Professor – a level I hadn’t yet attained. While chronologically, I know I’m a woman. Sometimes, I feel like an impostor playing grown-up. Talking to friends, I’ve learned it isn’t at all uncommon. It could have something to do with our preconceived ideas about what a woman is/does. I like to think it’s because I’ve stayed closely in tune with what makes me “me.” Some people shut that part down when they take on more “adult” responsibilities. They lose track of it when they get married and have kids because their “me” gets twisted into “we.” Philosophy aside, I used to view it as immaturity. Now, I view it as a strength, as me being more evolved.

  • really? so is she a teenage mom?! Silly thing to say. How about I’m young at heart and like to be silly like a teen. But what she said sounds like shes immature and one would not think shes a mother!
