Katie Holmes was ‘obsessed’ with Tom Cruise from age 15


Katie Holmes was ‘obsessed’ with Tom Cruise from age 15


Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ relationship has been a topic of much discussion and speculation in Hollywood.

The couple met and fell in love quickly, with Cruise famously declaring his love for Holmes on The Oprah Winfrey Show by jumping on the couch.

However, according to Mary Beth Peil, who played Grams on the popular teen drama Dawson’s Creek, Holmes’ relationship with Cruise wasn’t a surprise.

Peil revealed to The Daily Beast that Holmes had been a big fan of Cruise for a long time.

She recalled an incident on the set of Dawson’s Creek when she was discussing Cruise’s film Jerry Maguire in the makeup trailer, unaware that the guest actor in the chair was Cruise’s first wife, Mimi Rogers.

Peil said that Holmes launched into a long discussion about Cruise, his marriage to Rogers, and his involvement with Scientology.


She said that Holmes had been infatuated with Cruise since she was 15 years old and had posters of him on her bedroom wall.

“The woman had been Mimi Rogers, Cruise’s first wife (who played Helen Lindley in the sixth and final season of Dawson’s),” Peil recalled.

“Then Katie launched into a big spiel about Tom Cruise being married to Mimi Rogers, Scientology, Nicole Kidman … She knew everything about him.

“She said, ‘I have had a crush on him since I was 15, and his posters were on the walls of my bedroom.’ She could not stop talking about Tom Cruise. This was way before they got together, but she was certainly ready for him.”

In a 2004 interview with Seventeen magazine, Holmes admitted to having a crush on Cruise. She said, “I used to think that I was going to marry Tom Cruise.”

Despite their mutual admiration, the couple didn’t start dating until 2005. They got engaged later that year and welcomed their daughter, Suri, in 2006.

They married in a lavish Italian ceremony later that year. However, the relationship wasn’t meant to be and the couple divorced in 2012.

Before his relationship with Holmes, Cruise was married to Nicole Kidman from 1990 to 2001. The couple adopted two children, Isabella and Connor, during their marriage.

Prior to his marriage to Kidman, Cruise was married to Mimi Rogers from 1987 to 1990.

Cruise has been a prominent figure in Hollywood for decades and is known for his roles in films like Top Gun, Jerry Maguire, and the Mission: Impossible series.

Holmes rose to fame as a teen on the hit drama Dawson’s Creek and has since starred in films like Batman Begins and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.
