I must give big props to Katie Holmes and all runners of the NYC Marathon. It's hard work and the next day you are super tired and your feet are so sore.

Did anyone notice that Katie Holmes was wearing headphones which are being either discouraged or banned from races for liability issues? Why the special treatment?

I've always worn headphones when I run, 26.2 miles is damn long without music. It is very hard to get into the NYC marathon, I've tried several times, so did Katie have to go through the whole lottery process or did SHE recieve special treatment.

"Ever" Jovavich?
As in 'am I "ever" going to deliver this behemoth in my belly?' Or
'will I "ever" lose these 60+pounds of baby weight I gained?" or
"Can you "ever" eat too much marrow, Krispy Kremes, or Entemann's pecan ring?"

I guess it fits

We should all dress in black and become pleurants at the passing of a true American icon.

I think "Ever" is a really lovely 'unusual' name. Better than "Apple."
Kudos to Milla, too, for acting like a crazed pregnant woman (as anyone who's been pregnant knows - it happens) and not caring that she's a star. I have loads more respect for her.

Posted by: rachelt | November 5, 2007 9:38 AM | Report abuse

Either I'm really late for work (possible, possible) or the time on the comments haven't adjusted for turning the clocks back an hour. It's only 8:37 AM but there's already a comment from 9:25 AM! Maybe with this glitch, Milla will have time to rethink the name "Ever", since time is not absolute.

Posted by: Daylight | November 5, 2007 9:39 AM | Report abuse

I don't like the name "Ever" at all! And I say that as someone who thinks "Apple" is kind of sweet and loves the name "Moxie CrimeFighter." It's something about the "er" sound at the end - that just makes it unattractive.

Tom's hair is for his role in that Nazi Germany movie he's filming. I have no idea about Suri, though.

Poor Katie, apparently she thought running the NYCM was going to give her a 26.2 mile head start.

Anyone read the bit on Keri Russell in Parade yesterday? I got a little creeped out on the Tom Cruise big brother/little sister (can't remember it exactly) comment considering she's 31 and that makes her older then his wife.

And Tom and Suri need better hair stylists.

After seeing the footage of Britney running over a paparazzi's foot, I side with her entirely over this issue. Her car was swarmed with people who were climbing all over their colleagues, innocent bystanders, and even Britney's car to get a photo, and this happens to her constantly where ever she goes. If one of them got his foot run over, maybe he should have stayed a foot or so away. The only way she could have avoided it would have been to stop altogether, then the photogs could easily have kept her there for hours before tiring of taking pictures. As far as the police officer, he was there to protect her and it's a shame he got his foot run over. But I don't blame her. After being in the middle of the C*F* that is Britney Spears, I'll bet he doesn't blame her, either.

If a celebrity named his/her daughter Happily, then the children of Milla Jovovich, Gwyneth Paltrow, and that person could play together in the "Happily Ever Apple" play hour.

The Shia story is very funny. A few months ago he did an interview in Entertainment Weekly in which he claimed he would never be drunk in public like Brit, etc. because he has to protect his sterling reputation.

The only giveaway that it's not a woman in the photo with Katies are the glasses he's wearing. No woman would wear something that much too big for her face.

The lower half of Tom's face looks like Katie's - his smile looks like hers, not his usual buck-toothed grin. And if he's starting to try to look like Katie, that doesn't bode well for her.

Katie, you don't have to apply the lotion!!! Get out now!!!!

Ipods and other musical devices were not banned at the marathon although the practice is discouraged.

I think if your baby is making you look like a wire that ate a walnut, its time to publically admit your pregnant.

J-Lo, I'm taking to you. No amount of flowy outfits can make you look less pregnant.

I wonder if you'd even notice the sensation of running over a foot, especially when you've got paparazzi banging up against your car. I think Britney gets a pass on this one.

Katie looks really great after just finishing a 26.2 mile run. Maybe she's not sweating cause it was rather cool out?

As for Tom - what's with his coat? Probably I'm just out of it since I live in the Midwest, but is that jacket stylish?

Posted by: rb | November 5, 2007 12:24 PM | Report abuse

1. The papparzzi are all over Brit because she calls them and tells them where she is going to be. If she invites her little friends over, she needs to play nice and not run them over.

2. The woman obviously cannot drive, get a driver.

3.That would be the best outcome of Heather Mills victimfest, Paul gets full custody because she made sure the whole world knew she was mentally unstable. Oh and Heather, if you are not going to bother to learn the Beatles' songs, you are not entitled to one cent of Paul's money that was derived therefrom. Which would cut your payout to about 0.

LMAO, L L L !! :-)

I don't think Angelina Jolie looks pregnant, there is no bumpage whatsoever on that stick figure.

I doubt Controller Cruise was there to "support" Katie in her marathon run, he just wanted to make sure she was firmly in his sights so she couldn't run and run and run as far away from him as she could get.

Not that she'd want to give up her suite full of dollies and carousels in the Cruise Compound.

So Milla Jovovich has already been married twice? Wow, she's on track to become the next Liz Taylor.

Just looked at the TMZ video of Katie running the NYC Marathon. She appeared to have three bodyguards running with her. When she ran, they ran; when she walked, they walked.

I wonder if they were scientologist minders to keep her from running away?

Run, Katie, run!

I've always wondered how long the paparazzi would take pics if the star they're going after just stood still & let them go for it.

Minutes? Hours? Days? I suppose some of them would have to take potty breaks but then they could be replaced by new ones.

It would be a cool experiment for someone to attempt but it'd hafta be someone w/a lot of free time yet still an A-lister.

Hell, Brit may as well try it, she doesn't have the kids full time, she's not promoting the album or getting ready to tour so GO FOR IT BRIT!!

With Tom, the inner (a-hem) man is finally becoming the outer. He is just so totally weird and I hope Katie can escape before he hits her with the turkey baster again.

"Katie looks really great after just finishing a 26.2 mile run. Maybe she's not sweating cause it was rather cool out?"

She's not sweating b/c it's not immediately she finished the race (ie, she's had time to reunite with the fam), and while props to anyone who finishes 26.2, her time of nearly 5:30 is not exactly blistering.

Posted by: rnnr | November 5, 2007 2:29 PM | Report abuse

"...her time of nearly 5:30 is not exactly blistering."

Maybe so. But I'll bet it's faster than 98% of the American adult population could run a 26-mile road course.

So big congrats and hats off to Katie! You go, girl...someplace where your sociopathic, whackjob husband will never find you and Suri until after the divorce is final.

Sorry niceFLguy, Tom can't be a sociopath as that is a psychiatric term and as we all should know psychiatry is a pseudo-science (and Matt Lauer is glib). I am fully willing to concede whackjob though.

Posted by: jes | November 5, 2007 4:04 PM | Report abuse

i'm on the verge of calling shenanigans on Katie's "marathon". Watching many, many, many family members complete them all over the country and in various times, she does not look like she ran the full thing. Her time is still pretty decent, depending on how long she trained. Most runner look a little frazzled, sweaty and you can clearly see salt caked on them when the finish. Lesson complete.

My guess is that she had some major touch-ups done my the "bodyguards" (read: handlers) prior to this photo. Or maybe Tomacita did it for her after he finished his own.

Posted by: cee_jay | November 5, 2007 4:27 PM | Report abuse

cee-jay, to be fair, I've run several marathons and by the time you find your family, you have time to wipe your face, hit the massage tent (my favorite)and eat your body weight in food from the after-race buffet. No matter what the weather is, I always have "salt face" but I make sure I clean up a little before I take my "Finisher" photo. Not to mention to you really think Tom is going to let his wifey take a bad photo? I'm surprised she's not wearing make-up and had her hair done.

THis wouldn't work in the caption chat, but it took me a long time to type!

Actually, I like a picture with less going on for the captions. If there's some obvious defect (someone's old, or not famous anymore) everyone jumps on that and there are 5000 non-funny iterations of that for every funny one, that usually doesn't address that obvious point. I thought people "brought it" more to the Klum one when they had to dig deeper. That Waldo caption one took me a minute then cracked me up!! Maybe I'm a tree-hugger or something, but Debbie Harry's cooler than everyone involved in the chat, and the captions that were just mean with nothing funny or clever to say sat with me wrong. So, after all that rambling, my main point was, I thought the picture without some obvious defect in the person made for funnier captions and I liked it more than I had before.

That's awesome that Katie ran the NYCM - her time may not be great, but finishing a marathon is great in itself. the AP article says she took up training to get rid of baby weight which just seems so, well, normal. Personally, I think I would have worn a more supportive bra (ouch, that one looks painful for 5+ hours of running), but I respect her all the same.

SeaTac, I'm not even sure katie WORE a bra in the marathon. The pictures on Just Jared don't "support" her having a bra. (Sorry - the pun was too obvious to ignore!)

I agree with cee_jay - I don't think Katie ran the entire marathon (or even ran-walked it). You can't convince me that she looked that good even an hour afterwards with a team of stylists.

Plus, she wore heels that night.

I think it's some kind of scientology stunt.
