Are Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes Dating?

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx, dating? Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx, dating?
Long ago, in the sweet stinking sweat of August, we heard a story about Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes, two actors, seen dancing together at a party in the Hamptons. Immediately, gossips the nation over began whispering that maybe the two were dating. But their reps, or people, or whoever says things publicly for them, said that they were just friends, just two pals dancing away a late-summer night. Foxx even called the claims "absurd" when asked in November. But now, here in the snowy hell of winter, the rumors have heated back up.

Page Six
is saying that not only did Holmes take a private aeroplane to California to spend time with Foxx around the time of the Grammys-California is always so lovely during Grammy season-but that they also hung out during Super Bowl weekend. They didn't go to the game together, but they saw each other that weekend. So are they are a pair?

Page Six is careful to point out that, since Foxx is friendly with his Collateral co-star Tom Cruise, who is also Holmes's ex-husband, the couple is "treading carefully." But they may still be a couple! And wouldn't that be something? Poor Cruise, wondering to himself as he floats through the solar system on one of his morning constitutionals, "Is it the Oscar?" Foxx showing off some of his Ray piano skills as he accompanies Holmes on "On My Own," which is of course one of her Dawson's Creek skills. Suri asking Foxx to change form or to make his fingertips glow or take her to Neptune again, and thus learning a valuable lesson that not all the adult men in her life are exactly the same. It'd be quite a thing, all the implications of this pairing. But ultimately, everyone here is a grown adult. Even Suri has the wisdom of the ancients, imparted to her through half of her genetic code, as if downloaded from a faraway satellite.

So I think they ought to be able to handle it. I say good luck! Good luck to Jamie and Katie, two famous people who aren't so famous at this point that it will blot out all the light that lets the relationship grow. They seem well-suited for each other in that regard. There will no doubt be a few awkward conversations, if they haven't happened already, but beyond that? The weather seems fine for skyrockets.
