Katie Holmes is finally back in the spotlight! Take that, Tom Cruise!
Holmes recently secured a spot in the new indie drama Touched With Fire. And maybe it's because she is drawing inspiration from the fact that the film's message is directly in opposition to her ex-husband Cruise's ideology, but it seems that Katie has been given a new lease on life.
Most of us will remember the infamous relationship between Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, who has been a disciple of Scientology since his first wife, Mimi Rogers, introduced him to the religion, reports Radar Online.
'Tom-Kat,' as the pairing between Cruise and Holmes was cleverly dubbed, lasted seven years (2005-2012), and it was one of those celebrity couplings that was all over the tabloids.
Even after Katie Holmes managed to shed Tom, the bad mojo he had instilled her with seemed to linger with her, as none of her subsequent acting roles scored higher than a 54 percent on Rotten Tomatoes... until now, that is.
Holmes' newest flick, Touched With Fire, which is about two manic depressive poets who meet in a psychiatric institution, is Katie's first "certified fresh" title in years, according to Rotten Tomatoes.
"On the promo tour for Touched With Fire, she's been refreshingly alive," writes The Daily Beast.
