Katie Holmes may prefer to keep her personal life private, but the general public has long been intrigued.
Over the years, the Dawson’s Creek alum has been linked to a number of high-profile men, the most notable of which is Tom Cruise. She told Seventeen magazine in 2004 that she “used to think I was going to marry” Mission: Impossible actor Chris Klein.
In 2005, Holmes began dating Cruise, the same year she called off her engagement to the Sweet Magnolias star. That June, the First Daughter actress announced her intention to convert to Cruise’s religion, Scientology, and the couple announced their engagement later that month.
The couple welcomed their daughter in April 2006 and married in Italy the following November. Holmes sought divorce nearly six years later. In August 2012, the case was concluded.
In March 2020, Holmes spoke to InStyle about the fallout from her divorce from Cruise, which saw her relocate to New York City with their daughter. “It was a tense period.” “There was a lot of attention, and I had a small child on top of it,” she explained. “We had a few amusing public encounters. So many strangers became my friends and helped us out, and that’s what I love about this city.”
A year after her divorce from Cruise, the Batman Begins actress was linked to Jamie Foxx, the Top Gun: Maverick actor’s co-star in 2004’s Collateral. The public was largely unaware of the couple’s romance. However, after six years together, they would eventually split up in 2019.
An insider exclusively revealed to Us Weekly at the time of their breakup that Holmes was the one who called it quits. The couple split just days after the actor from Just Mercy was spotted with singer Sela Vave.
Meanwhile, in September 2020, the Brahms: The Boy II actress began dating Emilio Vitolo Jr. The couple was spotted together twice in New York City, one of which they were caught engaging in PDA. We revealed their split in May 2021.
Overall, Holmes’ primary focus in recent years has been on caring for her only child. “My child is the most important person in my life, and her upbringing is essential to my work right now,” she told Town & Country in March 2017. “It’s critical that I’m present and that she grows up in a stable, innocent environment.” I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to do what I do, but nothing beats seeing your child succeed.”

After meeting on the set of Dawson‘s Creek in the late 1990s, the couple dated for a while before calling it quits in 1999. Jackson married Jodie Turner-Smith in 2019 after a decade-long relationship with Diane Kruger. In 2020, the couple expects to have their first child.
Holmes began dating the American Pie actor after her relationship with Jackson ended. They married in 2003 but divorced in 2005. In 2015, Klein married Laina Rose Thyfault, with whom he has a son named Frederick.
From 2006 to 2012, Holmes and Cruise were wed. She is the primary caregiver for their child.
After first being spotted together in The Hamptons in 2013, the Us broke the news of their relationship in 2015. They had a quiet romance for six years before splitting up in August 2019. “His partying ways don’t fit with her as she’s focused on raising her daughter and working,” an insider told Us at the time of their split.
Emilio Vitolo Jr.
Holmes sparked dating rumors with Vitolo Jr. in September 2020, one year after her relationship with Foxx ended. In New York City, the twosome was spotted out for dinner. They were apprehended packing on PDA in New York City a few days later. Us exclusively confirmed the couple’s split eight months later. “Katie and Emilio really enjoyed their time together — it just didn’t work out,” Us reported at the time. “She’s preoccupied with being a mother and her upcoming projects.”
