Katie Holmes is now following Thandie Newton on Instagram, Mirror reported. According to the outlet, the Dawson’s Creek alum made a move after Newton’s interview where she spoke up about her working experience with Tom Cruise.
Holmes only began following Newton last week.
Thandie speaks about working with Cruise
Thandie Newton worked with Katie Holmes’ ex Tom Cruise for the movie Mission: Impossible II. She played Nyah Nordoff‑Hall opposite Cruise’s Ethan Hunt in the action thriller movie.
The movie spawned more sequels, but Newton did not return in any of those movies. When asked about it, the actress got candid and admitted that she was never asked to appear in the next films.
“Oh, I was never asked. I was so scared of Tom,” Newton told Vulture.
“He was a very dominant individual. He tries superhard to be a nice person. But the pressure. He takes on a lot. And I think he has this sense that only he can do everything as best as it can be done.”
She also recalled a strenuous rehearsal for a scene that didn’t go well. Tom allegedly asked her to play him and vice-versa, and it frightened her.
“It just pushed me further into a place of terror and insecurity. It was a real shame,” she added.
According to Mirror, the most memorable element of Thandie Newton’s comment was his analogy about Tom Cruise’s growing spot.
They were filming one night, and she noticed a growing spot in Cruise’s face. She was surprised at how fast the zit manifested.
“I remember at the beginning of the night, seeing this slight red mark on his nose, and by the end of the night, I kid you not — this is how his metabolism is so fierce — he had a big whitehead where that red dot was,” Newton recalled.
“It would take anyone else 48 hours to manifest a zit. I saw it growing, and it was like the zit was me, just getting bigger and bigger.”
Holmes and Cruise’s split
Meanwhile, Tom Cruise allegedly felt blindsided when Katie Holmes filed for divorce. The actor admitted that he didn’t see it coming.
After their split, Holmes moved to New York with their daughter, Suri. According to sources, Cruise has no relationship with Suri after his split from Holmes.
Some blamed it on his religion.
According to Samantha Domingo, a former follower of The Scientology, Cruise’s religion forbid him from having a relationship with his daughter because she is not a Scientologist.
As for Cruise and Suri’s sighting in 2013, she believed that it was just a photo op. Domingo alleged that Cruise wanted to look connected with his daughter to avoid criticisms.
