Ever find yourself thinking about that time Tom Cruise was moved by the power of love to jump on Oprah’s couch? We don’t either, but that doesn’t mean we’ve lost all interest in the A-lister and his one-time lady love, Katie Holmes.
Expect to see a lot of the 35-year-old mother in the weeks to come as she begins promoting her new film, The Giver. On August 5, she stopped by Today and, when Matt “Not Exactly Subtle” Lauer quizzed her about her past, Katie shut down any hint of her relationship with T. Cruise right quick. Suri would be proud.
Here’s what Matt rolled out: “For several years, you were a very hardworking actress who became uber-famous for other reasons completely” — coughTomCruisecough — “Do you ever think you would make a deal and trade some of that fame to go back to that person you were beforehand?”
Katie cooley replied, “You know what? I never really look back. I just approach life [taking] it one day at a time. I’m really excited about where I am right now.”
And we’re really excited about the unexpected nugget in this interview: Matt admitting he kind of wanted to give Katie a push into the swimming pool at a recent swanky NYC event they both attended. Oh, Matt.
