This seems out of the blue! Katie Holmes has spent the last 6 months piecing her new life together ever since splitting from hubby Tom Cruise. She moved to New York City with Suri Cruise, and seemed to be on track when she landed a role in Dead Accounts. But the show closed quickly and she’s eying a new career! A source has confirmed that Katie is looking to follow in dad Martin Holmes’ footsteps, and pursue a career in law!
“Katie started acting when she was a teenager, and she’s grown tired of that career,” an insider explained to National Enquirer, print edition February 4, 2013. “She expressed a keen interest in law while splitting from Tom Cruise, and now that the divorce is finalized, she has the time, the money, and the opportunity to go to school.” Changing careers is always challenging to orchestrate, and we wonder if Katie has ulterior motives! Tom is reportedly eying a run for presidency—could she be trying to outdo him with a law degree?
Katie isn’t just trying to find a new career. She “wants to be a strong female role daughter for her daughter Suri.” An admirable goal, certainly! But I don’t think law school is the only way to do it. But it seems she may be looking to leave Hollywood entirely!
Katie’s dad is a lawyer specializing in divorce law, and his offices are in her hometown of Toledo, Ohio. If Katie went for this, she’d want to officially join the family business, and Martin “is thrilled she’s decided to follow in his footsteps.” The insider claims that “they’re even considering going into practice together.” Can you see it? Katie Holmes: defeater of Tom Cruise, out to bring happily ever after endings to the women of Toledo!
Whether law school is in her future or not, Katie does seem to have reached a fork in the road. Recent acting failures have proven that, short of a Dawson’s Creek reunion, any acting gigs she landed would be based on her name—not talent. Have her priorities shifted so much that she’s ready to move off screen and dedicate herself totally to Suri?
