‘Inescapable’ star Joshua Jackson talks about a recent phone call from former cast mate Katie Holmes, meeting his father, and the strangeness of living life in the public eye.
That’s great news, that Katie is reconnecting with old friends. I have such a soft spot for J Jackson.
Joshua!!! i like him a lot
I am not sure how I feel about this. I mean I am glad she called to say like he said hi, had a kid blah blah but I do not want anything to come frome it and I hope she is not just calling him but calling others that she has lost cantact with. I guess what I feel is because lots of people blamed her for the ending of the friendship but I think it was the life she was living a busy and committed life with Tom. I do not think it was a conscious thought on her part and then she was pregnent and she knew they were getting married so why call him if anything I would think he would have called her to say hay congrats which he said in an interview he hadn’t called her either. I hope what we next in Katie’s life is her getting ready for broadway and her and Suri are moving ahead and learnig a new path to happiness.
If I was Josh, I would have hung up on her. You forget all about your friends for years and then out of the blue you call. I wouldnt bother with her. I know she was with TC all that time and he is known as controlling but did he have a gun to her head? NO! She was alone plenty of times. She could have called her old friends if she wanted to. She was a grown up when she got with Cruise. She is just as responsible as he is – and she got preggers FAST. Its her fault that Suri was brought into it. Tom Cruise is a nutbag but she was with him of her own free will and she is just as responsible for what happened. Love my behind. If a man is being terrible to you and taking away your friends, you get out. Its not like she didnt have a good family behind her to help (which they did in the end). Katie needs to take her own responsibility too. I used to be a big fan, but she did wrong too. She did wrong for her little girl, for ignoring her friends, and for allowing herself to get sucked into a cult. All she had to do was take a her little girl and do what she she did in June – only she should have done it years ago. Thats my opinion.
Frannie, thats pretty judgement if you ask me. Plus most of it are just your own assumptions. Life happens, and from what I know it was both sides that let the friendship to the side.
Katie fell in love, had a family and a new life. Sure that she may have made mistakes along the process like we all have or will but It is not our position to judge from the distance. I for one, really liked their friendship although JJ attitude at times seemed confusing to me. I am sure she is doing this with everyone she considers worth reuniting.
As for TC era, he is still the father of her child. I think ( just an opinion no science here) he is a really good person but I am happy shes out.
I wish you could monitor these posts and when they are some random nonfan you do not post them so we do not read them.
This is why I do like to go to jj or gossip girl because people are so ridiculous not just to Katie but others they do not like. This person seems like a Josh fan that blames Katie for not cantacting Josh but not the other way around. To me there are two people in the relationship and they are both to blame for not contacting. I do not blame either because thats how it goes sometimes you lose contact especially when you invoved with someone in a different circle.
I’m so sorry fel that no one is allowed an opinion but you. The fact is Katie walked away from all her friends and that isn’t right. EVERYONE grows up, marries and has a family. That doesn’t mean they forget everyone they ever knew before they met their husband or wife. I was a HUGE Katie fan and did my best to stay one. I still like her work. I just happen to think that she spent 7 years being a a not so nice person while she was with TC. She let HIM run her life and that’s nobodies fault but hers. I’m not willing to completely blame her ex.
To the other person who said this is all assumptions – everyone knows Katie dumped all her friends. They have talked about it. I’m just giving my opinion on it. You have nothing but assumptions either, unless you know her personally, which you don’t. Also, you “think” Cruise is Suri’s father. Wow, you’re not much of a fan of Katie’s are you? Are you saying the guy she married isnt the father of her little girl and she lied to the world?? What kind of a fan thinks that way. Better look out. Fel is gonna get all pissed at you.
We have freedom of speech where I come from. Everybody is entitled to their opinion and I gave mine. Deal with it.
Yes , Katies biggest mistake was that she meshed herself so totally into Tom, into his life, his world, his everything, but maybe that’s the way she is tho, tends to lose herself along the way.
I don’t think it’s that easy to go when you have a child, and she still probably loved him, even tho maybe things were going wrong.
I think Katie became stronger as time went on, that’s why it was this June, and not a few Junes ago.
Toms friends became her friends, but they are still Toms friends, they are not going to stick with Katie when she divorced Tom, so she has to seek out her old friends, and make new ones.
She’s back with a lot of the people she was with before Tom, it’s a shame she didn’t keep them while she was with him, it’s true, but it happened, and I think a lot of people understand.
Katie , actually is not that hard to figure out, her pics show it.
When Katie filed for divorce, she was fuelled up, confident, it showed in the way she dressed.
I know who I am, what I am , what I want.
Lately she’s throwing herself together again, any old way.
It can’t be easy , the many many things that were open to her as TC’S wife, are gone, and she has to deal with things on her own now, probably dealing with Suri, concerning her father is different, communication, which was a 3way thing for them now is different. I’m sure things arn’t easy far from it. I’m sure Katie knows a lot of people, but are not necessarily her friends, and her family is not in the same city, and other friends maybe back in LA.
I can understand why she wants to reconnect.
I’m going to put myself out here, now, but I have a feeling she rushed into things a bit, if you look at her, she is very impulsive, doesn’t seem to think things really through too well, and seems to do things her way, and it really looks at times not always in best interests,because if she did, she would have done it a bit differently maybe, because even tho I believe some of the things the media have said , I don’t believe all of it.
Katie, although , I think is really a nice , loving person, her decision making is a bit off the mark, at times, and you can see it, and I bet she doesn’t listen when people try to give her advice either, she does what she wants in the end.
I’m not saying that she should not have divorced Tom if things were not working out , it was just seems too quick, like lightening.
Like I said I think it’s all in her decision
Athough, don’t know why Josh advertised that Katie rang him.
Fel , why did you say , you hope that’s all it is, when Katie contacted him.
Frannie, you completely misunderstood my point. My “I think” part was in regards of him being a good person, NOT him being the father. Where did you get that from ? Was my type of writing, excuse me but I do not question that for a second.
so please do not judge how big of a fan I am based on sth I did not say.
I said I think, because I dont know him, but he seems like a good hearted man. I can not guarantee it. Just my two cents. The father thing is just to offensive, I would never see Katie involved in a sham, and how this all turned out for her is a good prove of that.
If it is my English, well I am sorry. It is not my mother tongue, I try.
As for the assumptions, was it all her friends? Do you know that as a fact? I hardly doubt so. Was it DC cast and crew? Probably. What I mean is that it may be her mistake to have absorved Toms life as hers and left somethings and some people in the way. I do not think it is as drastical as you put it and I think that she is amending her mistake. Period. Life gives you things, and takes them from you. You fail, you learn. Life goes on. I rather focus on her great step forward, her strength and her determination.
I do not know her personally, knor do I believe that meeting her two times for a quick chat would change anything. Only peopl really next to her, close friends and family know what really went on to be able to judge her the way you did. I think she is in a good position right now, has the love of her life with her, her daughter and I am sure that all of this was worth of having her.
Annie, OMG; you should be an script writer!!! GOd lord Annie, we dont know her!!! By the way, I do not agree, the divorce thing, was not a quick decistion. In my opinion, this was in the oven for a long time. Things were not working out and she made a plan. But thats just how I see it. We will never know.
Frannie said: I’m so sorry fel that no one is allowed an opinion but you. The fact is Katie walked away from all her friends and that isn’t right. EVERYONE grows up, marries and has a family. That doesn’t mean they forget everyone they ever knew before they met their husband or wife
It is not a fact just because you think that does not make it so . I am marrie and when we were first together I lost touch with several freinds because my relationship was all consuming in my spare time, If I was not working or at school I was with him. Other people I know did the same thing and when my space came out some people got in touch with old friends and the same with facebook. It takes two in a relationship and at least with Josh he said he did not call her either. Almost all of what you said is not fact. If Katie or Tom said it it would be a fact.
Frannie are you a member here I did not see your name on the list and I do not recognise it? Thats why I did not like waht you were saying because it seemed that you just came to say something bad about Katie. annie has come here lots of times and said things I dot agree with but I do not say anything to her as a matter of fact I have defended her from others when they got upset.
annie said Fel , why did you say , you hope that’s all it is, when Katie contacted him. I did not say that what I said is I hope that it was just to reconnect and that she reconnects with others and they say yes I have talked to Katie so that people well not start a thing of Josh and Katie.
Bilbomet, trust me, a lot of things come through.
of course I , we, don’t know her, but I’m an astrology buff, my hobby, has been for years, and whether you are a believer or not, you would be surprised what it can tell you about people.
Then seeing different things albeit from the outside, you see how much it falls into place, and is very rarely off the mark where peoples personalities are concerned , and I ‘m not talking sun signs.
forgot to say, that everybody is not so easy to read like Katie, because she wears her emotions on her sleeve, moon/ conjunct ascendant , it would be very hard for someone with that aspect to hide what their feeling. of course not always, but….
Anyway, like i said it’s my hobby, and it’s fun too.
Love to you all!
“Athough, don’t know why Josh advertised that Katie rang him.”
Easy, look how much free publistiy it’s generated him! He’s not daft.
