Katie Holmes Won't Be Tom's Date at Golden Globes
by Roger Friedman
Katie Holmes is facing one of the biggest choices of her life.
At issue: January 11th, 2009. Its the final performance of All My Sons on Broadway. In New York. On the East Coast.
However: on the west coast, hubby Tom Cruise is nominated for Best Supporting Actor (suppress that laughter) for his brief comic turn in Tropic Thunder.
Cruise is like the King of the Globes, their most desired participant for TV ratings, bigger even than Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The actor will be only two weeks into the launch of his movie, Valkyrie, and the Globes show may be his final publicity pitch.
So what to do?
Ina Treciokas, Katies press rep, answers the question definitively. Katies decided to stay and her do last show, Ina tells me. She wont be going with Tom to the Globes. The cast of 'All My Sons' has been like a family and they want to end it together.
Indeed, while some (ahemJeremy Piven) Hollywood types have been not totally devoted to their Broadway shows, Holmes has been a stalwart. She hasnt missed a performance, as far as I know. Shes remained devoted to the play even though shes got the smallest of the four leads.
So who will Tom bring to the Globes? Will it be mom Mary Lee, who until recently was living with Tom and Katie and now resides at the Scientology Celebrity Centre in Hollywood? Or maybe daughter, Isabella, whose mom is Nicole Kidman? I guess well have to wait and see.
