Holmes to Run NYC Marathon

Hollywood Actress Katie Holmes will join cyclist Lance Armstrong and thousands of other runners in New York City's marathon next month, according to reports.

The "Batman Begins" star, 28, has been spotted jogging in Berlin, Germany -- where husband Tom Cruise is filming on the set of the World War II biopic "Rubicon" -- in preparation for the 26-mile race.

A friend tells Britain's Star magazine, "Katie is determined to complete the race and make Tom proud. She's been training for months, both in Los Angeles and in Berlin. She's as fit and toned as she's ever been in her life. Katie is going to surprise a lot of people."

Tom Cruise

An actor whose name has become synonymous with All-American testosterone-driven entertainment, Tom Cruise spent the 1980s as one of Hollywood's brightest shining Golden Boys. With black hair, blue eyes, and unabashed cockiness, Cruise rode high on such hits as Top Gun and Rain Man. Although his popularity dimmed slightly in the early '90s, he was able to bounce back with a string of hits that re-established him as both an action hero and, in the case of Jerry Maguire and Magnolia, a talented actor.

Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz have ended their three-year relationship.

Robert Garlock, Cruz's spokesman, told People magazine that neither star is dating anyone else and the two "remain good friends."

Cruise, 41, starred in last year's "The Last Samurai" and appears alongside Jamie Foxx in the upcoming Michael Mann-directed thriller "Collateral."

Cruz, 29, appeared in last year's "Gothika'' and the recently released Italian film "Non ti Muovere (Don't Move)." She is to star alongside Charlize Theron in the upcoming "Head in the Clouds."

Garlock said Cruz had not become a Scientologist like Cruise"but she has taken (church) courses and she's found them beneficial." He said Cruise's religion was not involved in the split.

Cruise and Cruz met on the set of the 2001 film "Vanilla Sky."

Nicole Kidman: I Still Love Tom Cruise

Despite splitting from Tom Cruise five years ago, Nicole Kidman says that she still considers their 2001 divorce a "major shock" – and confesses that she still loves her ex.

"To me, he was just Tom, but to everybody else, he is huge. But he was lovely to me. And I loved him. I still love him." Kidman, 38, tells the Ladies' Home Journal in a new interview, in which she also reveals a certain premonition about something dire being about to happen.

"I always knew the rug was going to be taken out from underneath me at some stage," says Kidman. "I didn't think it was going to happen in the way it happened. I had seen my mother battle breast cancer, so I had a fear of my health being jeopardized – that was really where I was thinking mine would come.

After 10 years of marriage and adopting two children together – Isabella, now 13, and Connor, 11 – Cruise filed for divorce in February 2001, citing irreconcilable differences.

"I knew I was going to get hit with something," says Kidman, who stars in the upcoming Fur (about photographer Diane Arbus). "But I think a divorce, and the demise of what your family is, is a little death in itself."

Of her relationship with her children, Kidman says: "I feel enormous love for whoever my children's birth parents are. And if my children choose to go find them at some stage, I can't wait. Because – it's the weirdest thing – I actually feel (they're) very connected to us as a big, strange family, and whether they choose to search for them or not, who knows."

Cruise, who currently stars in Mission: Impossible III, recently welcomed his first child with his fiancée, Katie Holmes – a daughter named Suri. Kidman, meanwhile, has been keeping company with country singer Keith Urban.

"I'm pretty careful about who I share my life with," she says. "I surround myself with truthful, kind people, most of whom are not in the business. It's the life I want to have when I'm an old woman with long, gray hair."

Now married with Katie Holmes

TOM & Katie's Engagement

By Jennifer Frey

Saturday, June 18, 2005; Page C01

Katie and Tom. Tom and Katie. It hasn't even been two months, but Tom Cruise has popped the question -- yes, at the Eiffel Tower -- and Holmes is, she gushed yesterday, "so happy."

What century are we in again? This is a classic 1940s Hollywood romantic picture. Or perhaps an episode of "The Love Boat," where, in the span of a three-day cruise, couples meet cute, fall desperately in love and declare their eternal devotion (all despite the surely distracting presence of Captain Stubing in those awful white Bermuda shorts).

That's not today's fairy tale. Or is it? As Carrie Bradshaw opined in the final season of "Sex and the City": Are women today romance-phobic? When her dashing, established, rich, well-known older man (Aleksandr Petrovsky, played by Mikhail Baryshnikov) read her poetry or wrote her a song, she declared it "the ick heard 'round the world." And when he whisked her away to a fine hotel in Paris with a view of the Eiffel Tower, she ran off with Mr. Big instead.

Let us put aside, for the moment, the swirling suggestions that this relationship is all just a publicity stunt by two actors with big summer movies to plug. Take Cruise's mad declarations of love -- and couch-jumping on "Oprah" -- at face value. Take Holmes's shy, hesitant expressions of affection as those of a young woman who has been swept away by the man of her girlhood dreams.

Face it: This is a Harlequin romance in the era of chick lit. It's a Danielle Steel novel, not "Bridget Jones's Diary." To post-feminist, post-ironic women, it's a great big "ick," right up there with the marriage proposal on the Jumbotron at a baseball game.

And it also might be the reason there is so much public fascination with Tom-and-Katie (that and the fact that Cruise is 16 years older and that this would be his third marriage, of course).

"I think in some ways that's part of the appeal of" their retro romance, says Robert Thompson, a professor of popular culture at Syracuse University. "Those kinds of ideas are not being let go in our culture nearly as fast as we want them to. They linger. They continue to have their echo, even though most of us don't subscribe to them."

And it only works because Cruise found himself a girl like Katie. Katie, who still has her "ie." Holmes is not a star, she's a starlet. It doesn't matter if she's actually 26 years old, an age at which many of her Hollywood contemporaries are already married and popping out babies (Reese Witherspoon and Kate Hudson, for two). She comes across as the ingenue, the young thing, the innocent. Unlike, say, 18-year-old Lindsay Lohan, she does not yet have what Thompson calls "the stench of Hollywood." She still seems like the new girl in town.

A lot of that, of course, has to do with the arc of Holmes's career. Sure, she's had her magazine covers, made a few films and a television show. But that show was "Dawson's Creek," it was all about teenagers and not only was it not set in California -- one could never compare Holmes's current oeuvre to any of the female teen stars of "Beverly Hills, 90210" -- it wasn't shot there either. The bulk of her career has been spent in the cocoon that is Wilmington, N.C., where "Dawson's Creek" was filmed. And she remains a real-life version of Joey, the classic "good girl" she played on TV. Sure, Joey was smart, and sexy, and had her independent streak, but in the public mind-set, she's crawling through Dawson's window and offering up that innocent, dimpled grin.

So there's an impulse to worry about her -- is she being taken advantage of? Is the quick immersion in Scientology (the controversial religion that Cruise follows) a signal that he holds far too much sway over her than might be healthy? These are not things that worry people when it comes to the Jennifers (Aniston, Lopez, Garner); they've shown their business savvy, made their big career moves and, well, if their big public romances go pfffftttt, there's not much time angsting over broken hearts or broken spirits. But Holmes, she's different. The doe eyes, the dewy skin -- the whole package prompts protectiveness. Never mind that she's already had one broken engagement to an actor. Even that coupling fit the image: She was with Chris Klein, best known as the earnest, respectful lunk among the many lunks that populated the "American Pie" movie franchise.

Then there's that sticky age thing. Holmes was 5 when "Risky Business" made Cruise famous for dancing in his tighty-whities. She was 8 when "Top Gun" hit the scene and he became a bona fide heartthrob. She's said that she grew up fantasizing she'd marry him, and, voila, he gives her a call and then, later, there's a late-night proposal at the Eiffel Tower and a very large ring.

Thompson recognizes the traditional romantic story line, "but also the creep factor plays out because of the older man-younger woman thing."

It's so old Hollywood: The big established star selects the right pretty woman to be on his arm. It's hard to imagine any relationship between them in which he is not the dominant partner. It will always be his town (Hollywood), his industry, his universe, his career -- not to mention his religion. Think about it: The public announcement of their engagement came as a part of a media junket for his new film, "War of the Worlds." (One wonders: Did she get to call her mother first? Her best friend? Or did they find out via CNN?)

The best friend is still her childhood buddy from Toledo, and Holmes is close to her family. We know this because of a cover story this month in In Style, the magazine that adores celebrities and never points out their fashion faux pas or needs for pedicures. She didn't score the cover because of Cruise -- their relationship is so new it didn't exist when the issue was in production -- but because she's the new love interest in the just-released "Batman Begins," her first blockbuster picture. In the article, Holmes is portrayed as the fresh-faced girl who just made the big leap to getting her first New York City apartment. Asked about her breakup with Klein, she answers in what one can only imagine is her very sweet voice:
"He's a lovely guy, and we still care a lot about each other. We just decided that ultimately we want to be friends."

Then she adds this explanation for their decision not to head to the altar: "And we are very young."

Not anymore, sweetie. Not anymore.

Marriage of Tom & Katie

The couple's rep, Arnold Robinson, confirms the wedding will take place November 18 in Italy--"All those details are correct," he says--and tells Us "proper security measures are being taken" to keep the vows private.

An Italian wedding in some ways brings Cruise, 44, and Holmes, 27, full-circle writes People: Their first public outing as a couple, in spring 2005, was in Italy, where Cruise was in Rome for the April 29 David di Donatello awards. Cruise told reporters on his way into the Auditorium Conciliazione di Roma, "She is an extraordinary woman."

Just two months later, Cruise proposed to Holmes at the top of the Eiffel Tower in France.

Nearly a year later, the pair welcomed their first child together, daughter Suri, on April 18. "She's so beautiful," Cruise told PEOPLE shortly after Suri's birth. And just two weeks after becoming a mom, Holmes said she felt "wonderful."

Cruise's rep told PEOPLE last week that the couple had asked their longtime friend Giorgio Armani to design the attire for the wedding.

The marriage will be the first for Holmes, who was engaged to American Pie star Chris Klein until February 2005 reports

Cruise had been married twice before, to Mimi Rogers ('87-'90) and Nicole Kidman ('90-'01). He has two adopted children, Isabella and Connor from his marriage with Kidman.

Sofia Vergara Biography

What's up with Tom Cruise and all these Latin women? First he had a long relationship with Penelope Cruz (from Spain) and now he has been dating Sofia Vergara for about a month. What can we say, he does have a great taste! All these women are very different from former wife, Nicole Kidman (at least they are all much shorter, which is a plus for Cruise).

Even though Sofia is not a Scientologist, the two met at the Church of Scientology's Celebrity Centre International in Hollywood. Tom is introducing Sofia to the religion, but apparently he is not pushing it (Penelope could tell you all about this). So, we'll see if Cruise can convert Sofia to Scientology or not. The megastar has been involved with the religion for many years and is more than devoted to it.

He is also very committed to his children, Connor and Isabella. Kidman and Cruise adopted both during their marriage and now enjoy joint custody. Both Tom and Nicole are very devoted patents.

Cruise (42) and Vergara (32) are taking the relationship to a higher level by meeting each others children.
