Katie Holmes’ Dating History: Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx and More


Katie Holmes may tend to keep the details of her love life private, but the general public has long been intrigued nonetheless.

The Dawson’s Creek alum has been linked to many high-profile men over the years, among the most notable being Tom Cruise. While engaged to Chris Klein in 2004, she told Seventeen magazine that she “used to think that I was going to marry” the Mission: Impossible actor.

Holmes began dating Cruise in 2005, the same year she called off her engagement to the Sweet Magnolias actor. The First Daughter star revealed her plans to convert to Cruise’s religion, Scientology, that June and they announced their engagement later that month.

The A-listers welcomed their daughter in April 2006 and tied the knot in Italy that November. Nearly six years later, Holmes filed for divorce. The case was finalized in August 2012.

Holmes spoke to InStyle in March 2020 about the aftermath of her divorce from Cruise, in which she moved with their daughter to New York City. “That time was intense. It was a lot of attention, and I had a little child on top of it,” she explained. “We had some funny moments out and about in public. So many people I didn’t know became my friends and helped us out, and that’s what I love about the city.”
