Was Katie Holmes so offended by Anne Hathaway's Saturday Night Live impression of her that she plans on skipping the Oscars? A recent report in the Daily Mail claimed that Holmes and husband Tom Cruise were furious at Hathaway after she played Holmes in a skit in November. (Watch the clip, which also includes cast member Vanessa Bayer's hilarious Miley Cyrus impression, below.) The story said that the power couple was even planning on skipping the Academy Awards, which Hathaway is co-hosting with James Franco, for fear of being mocked again. So -- is it true?
No way, says Cruise's rep. A spokesperson told Popeater that the Oscar boycott story was, in no uncertain terms, "not true and made up." However -- it is true that Holmes and Cruise are skipping the Oscars, and the rep says they were never planning on attending.
The Daily Mail's source said that Holmes felt betrayed by Hathaway, whom she helped through her 2008 break-up with Raffaello Follieri and who "didn't even warn her" about the SNL sketch. If that's true, then we wouldn't blame Katie for being a little miffed -- it's one thing to make fun of a celeb you don't know, and other thing entirely to do an unflattering impression of a friend without their permission. But we must say, people have said much harsher things about Tom and Katie for the sake of a laugh. (Seriously: the SNL skit didn't even touch on Scientology or Suri's purse collection!) We'd think by now that TomKat would have developed a pretty thick skin for this kind of joke -- even if it involves a merciless impression of Katie's famous one-sided smile.
