Holmes is a native of Toledo, Ohio. She is the youngest of five children born to Kathleen, a housewife and philanthropist, and Martin Joseph Holmes Sr., a lawyer who played basketball for Marquette University under coach Al McGuire. Three sisters and one brother are her cousins. Holmes was baptized as a Roman Catholic and regularly attended Toledo’s Christ the King Church.
At age 14, she enrolled in a modeling school in Toledo, which led to her participation in the 1996 International Modeling and Talent Association (IMTA) Competition in New York City. After performing a monologue from To Kill a Mockingbird, Holmes was eventually signed by an agent. Holmes made her big-screen debut as Libbets Casey in Ang Lee’s 1997 film The Ice Storm, starring alongside Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver. Holmes auditioned for the film by sending a tape to the casting director.
Katie Holmes got a part in Ang Lee’s The Ice Storm while still a senior in high school after studying modeling and acting at Margaret O’Brien’s Charm School in the Buckeye State, and her performance caught the eye of Kevin Williamson, who was casting the groundbreaking 1998-2003 teen TV series Dawson’s Creek.
Holmes landed the role of witty tomboy Joey Potter, stole the show from its namesake, briefly romantically involved with her on-screen love Joshua Jackson, and became the only cast member to appear in all 128 episodes.
The doe-eyed brunette made an excellent transition to film. She directed quirky indies (Pieces of April, Wonder Boys, The Singing Detective), image-busting nude scenes (The Gift, Thank You For Smoking), fright fests (Teaching Mrs. Tingle), and the occasional blockbuster (Batman Begins).
Katie Holmes Dating: Katie Holmes Confirmed She Is Dating Bobby Wooten III
Bobby Wooten III, Katie Holmes’ new boyfriend, recently announced their romance on the red carpet.
The couple made their first public appearance as a couple on Thursday night at the Moth Ball’s 25th Anniversary Gala, which was hosted at Spring Studios in New York City. Holmes accessorized her light orange Jonathan Simkhai dress for the event with diamond drop earrings, black kitten-heel sandals, a black and gold framing purse, a mock-neck, bishop sleeves, and a tight waistline. Wooten, on the other hand, opted for a straightforward teal wool and mohair suit by Paul Smith, complete with a black button-down and pockets square.
When the two were spotted out together in NYC last month, spending time with Holmes’s mother, dating rumors initially surfaced. Wooten is the bass player for Moulin Rouge right now! The Musical on Broadway and most recently appeared at Coachella with Carly Rae Jepsen.
The musician, who has previously received a Grammy Award nomination, is currently an adjunct professor at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. They both have Midwestern roots as well; the actress is from Toledo, Ohio, while Wooten is a transplant from Chicago.
Wooten is “a fantastic person, incredibly kind, super talented, and just an all-around cool man,” a source told People. As cool, intelligent, and witty as they come, he is a highly competent bassist and singer.
Katie Holmes Dating History
Her celebrity quadrupled, however, when she called off her engagement to actor Chris Klein in 2005 and began dating 42-year-old leading man Tom Cruise a month later. TomKat’s whirlwind romance included Cruise declaring his love on Oprah’s couch, an Eiffel Tower proposal after two months of dating, a pregnancy announcement after six months, the birth of daughter Suri in April 2006, and a lavish wedding in Rome in November 2006.
She’d been remade as a fashionista by 2008, and she’d made her Broadway debut in All My Sons. But just as people stopped doubting TomKat’s legitimacy, the first famous face of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics moved out and filed for divorce with the precision and secrecy of a surprise military attack in June 2012.
Prior to that, Holmes was married to Tom Cruise for six years before announcing their divorce in 2012. Suri, her sixteen-year-old daughter, is her child with the actor. She then went on to date Jamie Foxx for several years before they split up in 2019.
