Blind Item #6 - Interview Part One

"There was this period of several weeks where I had to be home at a certain time and ready to go out. Not for a red carpet, but to go exercise with him. In public. Everyday. He had made arrangements with some photographers to capture us being together. He would try and hold my hand while jogging. It was all ridiculous. He would look at what I was going to wear and it had to match what he was wearing. Not identically, but the style. If he was wearing a worn out pair of shorts, then I was supposed to also look like I was wearing things I had for years. He would spend hours obsessing over each of these details. Should I wear headphones? Should he? Should we wear the same ones? What color? Those were a very long three weeks. Hours and hours preparing for a two minute jog around the block and then to the back of the building and up just so it would look like we had the perfect marriage."

Outtake of an interview this former B+ list mostly movie actress and now a C with still A+ list name recognition gave about her actor ex-husband.

Wow. That is wild. So much effort for little reward. Who really cares they jogged together and whether they match or not.

It's totally them. Great job yet again @ VIPBlonde

AJ said...

Sorry, unsure how to make the link clicky....how does one do that ?

Shit You Can't Buy said...

I want to say Scarlett and Ryan, but the rating doesn't fit.

parissucksliterally said...

I don't remember seeing them (TomKat) jog together.....I do remember her doing that by herself.

Gretch72 said...

Heh. Google Tom and Katie jogging. Wow. Literally holding hands.

VIPblonde said...

@AJ How to put a link in Blogger

M. Brown said...

Has to be Katie but wouldn't you think the divorce agreement has a gag order in it?

AJ said...

@VIPBlonde
Thank you ever so much. I've learned something new today. See you can teach an old dog new tricks.

NomNom83 said...

For Christ's sakes, Katie, no one gives a shit about your workout regimen with Tom. Tell us about the sex and Scientology or go home.

lazyday603 said...

Almost anything having to do with Tom Cruise involves gagging of some sort or other.

AJ said...

@NomNom83
I agree it's not very juicy stuff but it does give a glimpse of how controlling life was with him. I would imagine that if it was this much effort to go out to jog, imagine other events. Yikes.

Renoblondee said...

That pic of them jogging IS funny!

T. E. Cuz said...

i kind of wouldnt totally hate this sort of personality. at least he knows what he wants and is ambitious.

but i can definitely see how it would be insane 24/7.

skimpymist said...

Totally tomkat. I still remember the pictures of them jogging together.

Molls said...

I have a really hard time with these kinds of clues:
Former B+ now A- sometimes A list mostly movie actress and now a C or maybe B- or B+ with still A+ name recognition. Very confusing and meaningless because I have NO idea which celebrities are A++, A+, A or even A- or any of the other alphabetized categories. Could you just leave that out and give the clues?

skimpymist said...

I enjoy hearing every tidbit of katies marrige to tom.

lazyday603 said...

Katie Holmes has such great tidbits.

NomNom83 said...

@AJ, I agree, I was only half serious. This definitely hints at the level of crazy she put up with and every bit is fascinating b/c he's so guarded. I doubt we'll ever hear any truly spectacular stories from her, though. Like Mimi and Nicole, I'm sure she's legally restricted from giving out any of the good stuff.

rosie riveter said...

Hahaha youre awesome

rosie riveter said...

Hahaha youre awesome

JoElla said...

Oh yes, most def about TomKat.

I think we are missing the big picture here, she is starting to talk. And a whole lot of little stories, will add up to one big ole OHMYGAWWWWWWD! NO WAY! type of story.

We just have to wait and connect the dots.

shopgirl said...

I heart VIP

Vera L- said...

I remember those pictures of them "jogging" while holding hands.

He must be exhausted from being "on" all the time.

Terri said...

I recall an Oprah interview at his Colorado home where she was interviewing Tom. Katie 'unexpectedly' popped in and I noticed the same thing. She was very awkward about it and seemed to be acting. It was portrayed as them not being able to be apart, yet Katies demeanor was one of boredom and 'whatever'. I guess the exercising was the same way.

CK76 said...

Wonder what time period this was and why over several weeks?

Nutty_Flavor said...

I suppose we have to wait for Katie's career to really crash before we'll get the very tastiest reveals from her.

Maybe 3-5 years? As @Terri points out above, she can't act for toffee, and she's beyond the sexy ingenue stage.

I agree that I wouldn't want to be married to someone with this level of controlling nature, but really, it's no accident that this guy has been a star for more than 30 years.

He's got no education, he's not a wildly talented actor, and he doesn't even have that much sex appeal, but he's got incredible ambition, energy and drive.

Nutty_Flavor said...

And self-control, which someone like say, Val Kilmer lacks. No alcohol, obesity, or drug problems for Tom Cruise.

MichaelaK said...

Dear me, Katie looks miserable!

Dingle Barry said...

The more of that crap Tom pulls, the more of a fake he looks like.

Laura said...

Anyone notice the title was "Interview Part One"??? Will there me more tidbits?

Charlotte. said...

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were always photographed holding hands whilst jogging too.

Bailey Quarters said...

@Nutty. I believe that Tom didn't go to college because he struggled with dyslexia.

Paper trail said...

Agree with Katie and Tom, but I'm surprised she speaks of this at all. Isn't there a gag order?

Alli G. said...

AJ-


Those pictures are a trip!! And they do add up to the clues in this blind. Tom and Katie even appear to be wearing matching outfits in quite a few of those pictures. I do recall seeing pics of these two jogging and holding hands and thinking to myself - who the fuck does that?

Anna said...

If it weren't for the Sea Org, it wouldn't be a bad deal to smile, hold hands and coordinate one's outfits for cameras in exchange for lifetime financial security. I just worked 14 hours with barely a break to potty. Two minutes around the block with a fashion-fussy husband, maybe followed by a farmer's market outing with the kid to look at eggplants and apples, seems like an easier day.

Silly Girl said...

Wow. Those matching outfits are hilarious!! I had no idea he was such a control freak! I kid, I kid....seriously though, what a dick. He can't go away fast enough. Remember when he was the cat's meow? Yea, it's been a long fucking time.

Amy Sliger said...

OMG, that google images link! How strange, they match in almost every picture.
