|Anne Hathaway at TIFF 2008|
The Daily Mail is reporting that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are boycotting the Oscars this year as word is that the Couple are displeased with Co-Host Anne Hathaway's recent parody of Holmes on a skit called The Miley Cyrus Show. Hathaway hosted SNL on November 20, 2010. Although Cruise's Publicist has confirmed this isn't true, do you recall Holmes nor Cruise having any real reason to be at the Oscars anyway this year? Neither has starred in any films in-contention for Awards this season.
After her appearance Hathaway clarified to Access Hollywood, "I was a teenager when Dawson's Creek was airing, and I was a pretty avid fan, so it just sort of came from that. It wasn't really Katie Holmes; it was more Joey Potter.". So there. Is any additional apology or explanation required, really?
If this is rumour is true, Holmes' lack of a thick skin makes me wonder how she's made it this far in Show Business being offended so easily. To be parodied by Anne Hathaway in my books, is an honour. And if anything, the one who looks worst out of this ordeal is what's depicted as an attention-seeking Miley Cyrus!
Let's relive that moment on SNL again below:
