Sure, Katie is special, but she’s not THAT special — she had a childhood dream of marrying Tom Cruise, just like the rest of us. Who didn’t have a childhood dream to marry Tom Cruise when they were little? He was the hunk from “Top Gun,” and everyone and their mother wanted him.
We were a little more than hot and bothered after that volleyball scene with Goose, and if he had put a ring on us, we would have been in heaven, too. So maybe living this dream does make her THAT special.
Getting Married in Italy
On November 18th, 2006, Katie Married Tom Cruise at a 15th Century Odescalchi Castle in Bracciano, Italy. The castle overlooks the water. It's a place so beautiful that anyone would love to get married there if they had the budget for it.
We would even think about getting married to a Scientologist if it meant having those views. We are kidding, but we did think about it.
Falling in Love in Paris
The city of love is known for many things, and engagements are one of them. We couldn’t think of anything more romantic than having someone get down on their knee for us in front of the sparkling lights of the Eiffel Tower.
Tom Cruise also thought so when he proposed to Katie there. The engagement photos were lovely! If only the marriage were as timeless as those photos...
All good things take time, but four years? Well, that’s how long it took Katie to get her first fashion line to New York Fashion Week.
She started her high fashion clothing line, Holmes & Yang, with longtime stylist Jeanne Yang all the way back in 2008, but the pair didn’t have anything ready until 2012. The line was well received, so we guess it was worth the wait.
They Can Dance if They Want To
Everyone loves to boogie, even Katie Holmes! She loved it so much that she created her own dance scholarship fund to help aspiring dancers reach their dreams. She did this alongside Nigel Lythgoe, Adam Shankman, and Carrie Ann Inaba.
The foundation is called the Dizzy Feet Foundation. Now, young dancers who are awarded this scholarship can boogie until their feet ache.
