Katie Holmes seems to have been in the spotlight for a number of various reasons of late. One such reason includes the ongoing mystery bond between her and actor Jamie Foxx. The star and the Collateral actor have each individually denied the claims of a romance, yet friends of the stars seem to be stirring things up and perpetuating the rumors by claiming that the two are in fact a couple yet are keeping things secretive for certain reasons, including, Suri Cruise, Katie and her ex-husband Tom Cruise’s daughter.
When it comes to her professional endeavors, Holmes is excited about where her career in Hollywood has led. The beauty has gone from playing the awkward teen Joey on Dawson’s Creek over a decade ago to now trying her hand as director. Holmes recently shared about her feelings when it comes to taking on the lead role behind the camera, noting that she found it “exciting and scary” directing for the first time on All We Had.

The List shares the 37-year-old’s words on the topic.
“It was exciting and scary. It’s just… you’re in charge!”
“Then the movie takes on its own life, and that’s fun.”
“I love being behind the monitor and seeing Stefania [LaVie Owen] and Eve [Lindley] have a great moment. It’s like, [gasp]. I did that.”
The actress went on to say how she often selects her own roles based on who is behind the camera and notes the weight that the role has for the cast and crew, adding that for her, working with Steven Soderbergh on Logan Lucky taught her a lot about what it takes to be a great director.
“Since day one in this business, you’re always trying to work with great directors. That’s the goal. I [recently] got to work with Steven Soderbergh, and that was a dream come true. He’s a master. I asked him a lot of questions about directing in our first meeting. He was extremely generous. Then I watched what he did when we were working.”
Katie Holmes is also set to reprise her role as Jackie Kennedy on the TV miniseries The Kennedys: After Camelot, but this time around she will be given the opportunity to direct one of the episodes. She commented on the shift to the director’s role within the television miniseries: “Everything is its own animal, so you’re always learning. It’s challenging, but I enjoy it.”
Other projects for the busy mom and talented star include the comedy Coup D’Etat, which is set for release shortly, as well as A Happening of Monumental Proportions, which is a film that she jumped at the chance to be a part of when her pal Judy Greer asked her to join the cast. Greer makes her directorial debut with the film. Katie recalled the moment that Greer asked her to be a part of the project.
“She said, ‘I have a part for you.’ I said, ‘When? Where?’ Women supporting women, that goes without saying. But I think artists need to support artists. It’s the right thing to do.”

It seems that Holmes is keeping her focus on her work and family while she shrugs off the constant media circus that surrounds her while fans and onlookers attempt to determine the truth behind relationship claims with Foxx. The pair has been the subject of rumors for months now and have reportedly been engaging in a secretive romance for years. Both have stated that they are merely friends, despite the latest pregnancy reports, as Hollywood Life has shared. The latest is that Holmes is deeply in love with the actor who costarred with her ex-husband in recent years.
