Every once in a while, the stars line up in such a way that a reporter will get a pretty major scoop and not even know it. Sorta like what happened to a reporter from C Magazine who just so happened to interview Katie Holmes, one day before she filed for divorce from Tom Cruise! That is some super sweet timing no matter how you play it. From WWD:
Elle isn’t the only magazine with good timing on its side. C Magazine shot Holmes for its September issue just seven days before she filed for divorce and the interview took place only one day prior to her big announcement. Senior editor Kelsey McKinnon, who met with Holmes for the interview, said that while the actress wasn’t bragging about her five-year marriage, she certainly didn’t seem to be standing at the edge of a precipice, either. “Going back over the tapes, there were signs: Holmes was certainly very aware of herself, laying a couple cards on the table but never showing her whole hand,” McKinnon wrote. “Most noticeably, the one name decisively absent from her lexicon: Tom Cruise. She never actually refers to him by name over pages and pages of transcription.” When McKinnon asked if having Suri brought the couple closer together, Holmes added, “I don’t know. I mean…I don’t know. People have been having babies a long time.”
For the record, this story becomes infinitely cooler when you frame it as “this is the exact moment Katie shut off her microchip and went rogue”, which is how I’m looking at this. Also, android assassin Katie has a super sweet motorcycle and weapons. ALL THE WEAPONS.
