When you think of Katie Holmes now you think about Tom Cruise, Suri, her hair style, her being pregnant and of course Scientology.
But remember when Katie was just hot?
(see the above picture)
She was a promising actress who (according to some rumors) was actually offered the role of Buffy Summers in "Buffy The Vampire Slayer".
Katie was born on December 18, 1978 in Toledo, Ohio, the youngest of five children.
Her first professional role was in 1997's Ice Storm directed by Ang Lee.
The film was a box office flop, but later became a success when it was released on video and DVD.
She then appeared in 1998's Disturbing Behavior, a science fiction thriller with a huge cast that had a few of my favorites, Steve Railsback (Duane Barry from The X-Files), James Marsden (Cyclops from the X-Men) and the beautiful Natassia Malthe.
Then Katie really made a name for herself in Dawson's Creek as Josephine "Joey" Lynn Potter.
This was followed by a string of movies that didnt do too well, but it looked like that was all about to change in 2005 when Katie appeared in the blockbuster Batman Begins and the critically praised Thank You for Smoking.
But also in 2005 came Tom Cruise and the infamous Oprah Winfrey Show incident.
Since then she has gone back to lack-luster movie and TV show appearances, even passing up reprising her role as Rachel Dawes in the Batman Begins sequel, The Dark Knight.
So is Katie a brain washed Scientology clone, or a woman that puts her husband and daughter above her career?
