Kate Noelle "Katie" Holmes (born December 18, 1978 in Toledo, Ohio) is an American actress and model who first achieved fame for her role as Joey Potter on The WB television teen drama Dawson's Creek from 1998 to 2003.
She appeared in 1998's Disturbing Behavior, a thriller, which won a MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance for the role. The year 2000 saw Holmes feature in two film roles. The first was in Wonder Boys which got positive attention from many leading critics. She also appeared in The Gift, a Southern Gothic story directed by Sam Raimi and starring Cate Blanchett. Holmes hosted Saturday Night Live on February 24, 2001.
Holmes had a starring role in 2003's Pieces of April, a gritty comedy about a dysfunctional family on Thanksgiving. Many critics and audiences agreed that Holmes had given her best performance in the film as April. In the 2005 film Batman Begins, the most successful film of her career to date, she played Rachel Dawes, an attorney in the Gotham City district attorney's office and the childhood sweetheart of the title character.
She also appeared in art house films such as The Ice Storm, horror films such as Don't Be Afraid of the Dark and thrillers including Abandon. She has also played on Broadway in a production of Arthur Miller's All My Sons and had numerous guest roles on television programs such as How I Met Your Mother.
Her marriage to actor Tom Cruise (2006-2012) led to a great deal of media attention, with the pair being called a supercouple and given the nickname "TomKat". Holmes dated her Dawson's Creek co-star Joshua Jackson early in the show's run. She met actor Chris Klein in 2000. Klein and Holmes were engaged in late 2003, but in early 2005 she and Klein ended their relationship.
Klein and Holmes have remained friends of varying degree since the breakup. Weeks after her relationship with Klein ended, Holmes began dating actor Tom Cruise. Holmes, who was raised a Roman Catholic, began studying Scientology shortly after the couple began dating. They got engaged in June 2005. On November 18, 2006, Holmes and Cruise were married in a Scientologist ceremony at the 15th-century Odescalchi Castle in Bracciano, Italy.
The actors' publicist said the couple had "officialized" their marriage in Los Angeles the day before the Italian ceremony. The couple's daughter, Suri, was born in 2006. The name has Persian and Hebrew origins. On June 29, 2012, Holmes filed for divorce from Cruise in New York after five years of marriage. Following the announcement, those close to Holmes stated that Holmes believed she had reason to fear that Cruise would abduct Suri, and also feared intimidation by the Church of Scientology.
On July 9, 2012, attorneys for the couple announced the couple signed a divorce settlement. This was the first divorce for Holmes and the third for Cruise. Holmes has custody of Suri. Following her divorce from Cruise, Holmes returned to the Catholic Church and began attending St. Francis Xavier Church.
