Who Is Katie Holmes is an unauthorized biography on the actress. Most of the information in the book I knew, as most of it was taken from tabloids and other magazines and with a little bit of drawing to conclusions added in for good measure. If you’re going to read this to find out what happened between Tom and Katie – don’t bother – as it is all speculation as I don’t believe either have publicly said why they decided to split ways.
If you’re just looking to find out some more about Katie, then check out the book, it’s interesting as long as you can read through the lines. If you are a fan of Katie as I am, you’ll probably already know most of the details in the book anyway.
I am hoping that Katie can get her career back up and running after a few bombs of movies (Jack and Jill? Yikes) because she certainly is talented and seems down to earth and is a good person to look up to.
(The book also never mentioned that there were rumors early on that the newspaper articles where she said she had a crush on Tom Cruise were actually about a different actor. I remember that being a big deal that the reports were doctored when the two first got together. I want to say the old articles were said to have mentioned Tom Hanks? Or maybe it wasn’t another Tom at all, I don’t recall.)
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review I was not otherwise compensated.
