The Girl Next Door
A Word With Katie Holmes
We chat with the red carpet ingenue
By Zachary Weiss
“It makes me want to drive a Lexus,” Katie Holmes cooed at the close of the opening remarks made at last night’s Lexus Short Films premiere sponsored by Lexus, made possible by Lexus, and smothered in Lexus everything.
The two short films, created by Jon Goldman and Satsuki Okawa, showcased stories of unrequited love, and also just happened showcased a new model in the sponsor’s 2015 line-up of automobiles. Branding aside though, Katie Holmes was on site as one of the mentors who assisted the two filmmakers in their creative process. Harvey Weinstein and directors Phillip Noyce, Justin Chadwick, Simon Curtis, and Antoine Fuqua played a similar role.
