Katie is of such cultural influence that she has been immortalized in a few different songs. British artist Firexit, punk-rock band Bowling for Soup, and even a small, obscure Japanese band all mention her in their songs.
Firexit went the furthest, with two songs being written about her. Bowling for Soup and the Japanese band both mention her by name. We can only imagine how cool it would be to be referenced in music that will live on well after we are gone.
Rachel Dawes Was Created for Kaite
Some people might not know, but Rachel Dawes was created specifically for Katie Holmes. The character doesn’t exist in any of the DC Comics, but Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer created the role and thought Katie would be the perfect actress to bring Rachel to life.
It turned out great, and she was perfect as Bruce’s childhood sweetheart in “Batman Begins.” Of course, the fact the role was created for her makes us wonder what happened that made her leave the role behind.
Katie started dating Tom Cruise in the spring of 2005 and quickly fell in love. They got married in 2006, but the love didn’t last forever; it barely lasted at all. They only managed to stay married for 6 years before the couple divorced in 2012.
Some outlets say Scientology played the biggest role in the pair’s split, but both parties publicly deny it did. Whatever the reason, we hope they are friendly now, even if at least in front of their child, Suri.
It’s Just a Phase
We all have experimented while we were younger, even Katie. When she was dating Tom Cruise, she dabbled in Scientology for a bit. The actress was originally raised Catholic but began studying the religion when she and Tom started to date.
The experiment only lasted as long as their marriage, and in 2012, after their divorce, she left the church for good.
Holmes Was Tom’s Third Divorce
They say the first marriage ends in divorce 50% of the time, and the second marriage is up to 60%. For the “lucky” people who make it to the third, we guess the chance of divorce is even higher than 60%. Maybe Katie should have seen the end coming when she said “I do” and became Tom’s third wife.
It’s never a good sign when your husband has been this controversial, and it’s even worse when he has two ex-wives.
