Stay at Holmes Mum (Katie Holmes Retires from Hollywood at Age 26)
The London Sun ^ | 11.12.05 | Victoria Newton

Posted on 11/12/2005 11:45:40 AM PST by gopwinsin04

Katie Holmes is quitting acting, to become a full time wife to Tom Cruise. The 'Batman Begins' beauty is one of Hollywoods most promising up and coming young stars.

But at age 26 she wants to ditch her blossoming film career and devote herself to bringing up the baby they are expecting next year.

A pal tells me 'Katie has decided to give up acting altogether. She's been telling friends that she and Tom have decided it is best that she stays at home and brings up their new baby.'

'Her decision is raising a lot of eyebrows in Hollywood. She is at the perfect age for so many screen roles and has completely closed the door on a promising career.'

Kate made her name with her brilliant role in the hit teenage series 'Dawson's Creek.' And made an impressive transition to the big screen in the recent summer blockbuster 'Batman Begins.'

Most girls would give their eye teeth to be the next Julia Roberts. But it looks like the opportunity will fall to another Hollywood starlet.

It also strikes me that Tom, a devoted follower of Scientology, is living in a time warp. If relationships are all about give and take, he hasn't given up much for her so far.

It's also a shame that she's giving up her career for him.

She's not giving up a career but chosing a much more important one.

I would just like to know whose baby she is carrying since it has been told over and over thru the years that Tom was sterile.

I’ll bet that the baby will not look like Tom Cruise. Any takers?

Why? She appears to be giving up her career for all of them, including herself and the soon-to-be baby. That sounds pretty honorable to me, and I wish them all the luck in the world.

Coercion, no doubt. She drank the kool-aid, that's for sure. He's probably scripted their entire lives together. I'm sure Xenu would approve.

She was starstruck from an old teenage puppy-love crush and then brainwashed by a dangerous cult. There's no "choosing" involved with anything she does these days, at least on her part.

Free Katie!

Exactly. I know nothing about Katie Holmes, but I know moves like this blow the minds of feminists. They can't grasp that raising a child is pretty much the most important thing a woman can do.

And to give up a "career" to raise a child, much less giving up fame and stardom, does not register in their minds.

Katie Holmes is quitting acting, to become a full time wife to Tom Cruise. . . .

They should have thought of that BEFORE they hit the bedsheets. "First comes love, then comes MARRIAGE, THEN comes the baby in the baby carriage." So does this mean they intend to get married before the baby is born?

She is at the perfect age for so many screen roles. . . .

She is also the perfect age to be a mom, which is by far the more important role.

Being a wife and mother is a great thing; unfortunately, she has been beguiled by a flake in a cult.

But it looks like the opportunity will fall to another Hollywood starlet.

No but I am certain the Scientologists could teach you how to brainwash a millionaire starlet into marrying you and giving up her career.

Because that is what they have done here. Holmes didn't choose this. Free will is absent in Scientology. You do as they say.

This won't last 2 years.

Gee, why haven't we been hearing from Tom lately? Maybe it has something to do with Hollywood brass telling him to shut his cake-hole and take a long vacation if he wants so much as a character bit-part ever again.

Let's just hope she never falls down, or is pushed down and gets into a "vegetative" state. Scientologist have a history with these kind of people.

Will someone who pays more attention to these sorts of things please tell me if there has been a marriage. There has been a much touted "engagement" ... and now, apparently, a pregnancy by some means ... but when was there a marriage? In the absence of a marriage, can we amend that to read: "a full time [fill in the blank] of Tom Cruise ... ?

A Freeper with a deliciously warped sense of humor has posted a picture of the happy couple, where Tom's face is superimposed on Katie's. It took me a few seconds to even notice the difference, LOL!

Incorrect.

She gets s multi-million dollar payout IF the marriage lasts X# of years. (The guess is 10)

If you look at Nicole and Tom - that marraige lasted exactly 10 years.

Would you give up ten years of your life for $$$?

Bizarre.

I would suspect she's choosing to be a stay at home mom because her mom made the same decision when Katie and her siblings were little. Just because a woman gives up a lucrative job to stay home and raise her kids doesn't mean she's brainwashed. Anyone can make money. Not anyone can love and raise your children the way you can.

Scientology is about brainwashing. If she were not a cult member, if she were an ordinary Christian or Jew, or even nonreligious, I wouldn't be surprised at her decision.

No, she's not. She's not Audrey Hepburn or Sophia Loren either. S'what? You would turn her down if she was the first to invite you to the Sadie Hawkins dance?

I think she's prettier than Julia Roberts. Roberts just had the advantage of being in a movie called Pretty Woman, even though the body in the famous poster for the movie wasn't actually hers.

So only stay at home moms who are Scientologists, which, by the way, we don't even know Katie is at this point, are brainwashed, whereas all other "non-scientologist" stay at home moms are engaging in an act of free will? That sounds a little kooky, don't you think?

I had a boss years ago who was a Scientologist nutter.... She and her baby girl never saw her husband, because he was basically doing slave labor all the time down in Southern Cal building some Scientology celebrity retreat or such. (Of course, slave labor might have been preferable to life with my boss....)

If you want to have fun, look over the pages and pages of cookie-cutter testimonials to Scientology , each with their own vacuous favorite L. Ron Hubbard quote.

Well I guess it's a better choice than some of these Hollywood actors that give up on their marriages due to their careers.


I'm going to have to say that as strange as it may seem to some. It seems perfectly honorable to me for one to give up Hollywood for the sake of their FAMILY.
