Over the past few months, we’ve seen Katie Holmes walk the streets of New York with her hair wringing wet and sans makeup. Her clothes, at times, have also seemed sloppy.
There’s been many musings as to why a celebrity with her wealth, couldn’t put herself together better.
But as it turns out, this was a deliberate move by Holmes to irritate her soon-to-be ex-husband.
BlindGossip.com has this juicy tale, which will have you looking at that little smirk on her face in an entirely different light…
Messy Hair and No Makeup
[BlindGossip] This actress – who worked much more several years ago than she does now – has found the perfect way to annoy her controlling husband. He always insisted that she not step foot out of the house unless she was looking her best (full hair, makeup, clothes) because she was a “reflection of his image”.
But now that they have quietly separated, she consistently walks out of the house in casual clothes and messy hair and no makeup (even when her destination isn’t the gym). Of course, the paparazzi are there, just waiting to snap her photo. Her publicist called and said, “Do you realize how much you’re p*ssing him off when you do that?” She replied, “Absolutely!” and giggled. Sounds like it’s just her little way of reclaiming her life.
It’s Katie Holmes!
Tom Cruise had so much control over Katie Holmes during the first few years of their marriage that it was downright scary. He wanted to dictate where she went, what projects she worked on, who her friends were, and what she looked like. He even wanted her to change her professional name (“call her Kate”).
The only time Katie Holmes was “allowed” to go without makeup was when she went to the gym. Any time she dared to go without for any other reason – and was caught by the paparazzi – a lecture from Tom was sure to follow. And god forbid she should ever let her hair go grey.
We just loved this little publicist conversation story when we heard it. We also loved this photo of Katie published on April 27, 2012 with no makeup, grey hair, and a bit of a smirk on her face. Some media outlets speculated that the grey hair might be a sign that Katie was pregnant. However, we knew that the entire look was just one giant middle finger to Tom Cruise.
In light of the report above about Katie’s messy appearance, we couldn’t help but think back to this photo of Nicole Kidman, leaving her attorney’s office after her divorce from Cruise was finalized. Notice that she too is makeup- free and in casual attire. This look of pure exhilaration must be one Holmes is experiencing today.
