Katie Holmes Sidesteps Matt Lauer’s Question About Tom Cruise (And That Awkward Interview)!

2nd Annual "Life is Amazing" Lexus Short Films New York City Premiere - Arrivals

Tom Cruise will never live down that super awkward interview with Matt Lauer about depression and Scientology. Well Matt tried to sort of address that interview when Tom’s ex-wife, Katie Holmes stopped by the Today Show, where she was promoting her new movie, Touched With Fire, in which she plays a bipolar poet.

Matt asked the brunette, “[The movie] asks the question, is it beneficial to treat these people with drugs?. You and I both remember a heated discussion I got into on that subject here in this studio. How do you think the movie comes down on that?” He went there!

Katie responded, “What I think our director [Paul Dalio] did a wonderful job with is this movie just kind of shows, this is it. These are these two characters in a love story, which he’s saying is kind of its own kind of mania, to fall in love. But he puts the question out there for the audience to make their own decision.”
