Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes emerged with yet another short new ‘do on Tuesday. It’s reported that after a string of box office bombs, Mrs. Tom Cruise may be headed to Broadway to star in a revival of Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons.”

Sure, her original bob was spot-on and a major inspiration to women wanting to chop off their own locks. But it seems she’s stuck in the vicious cycle short-haired women know all too well.

The Batman Begins actress is said to be in final negotiations to join John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest in Arthur Miller’s post-World War II show, with British newspaper reports claiming she has signed on to begin in May, while Fox News denies so.

Holmes would play Ann Deever, a 28-year-old woman whom Miller described as the truth-sayer of the piece.

While many have tried to put the things into perspective after Katie was spotted with her new ‘tomboy’ look… Washington Post has an interesting reason:

Katie Holmes is slowly being subsumed by Tom Cruise. The longer she’s in his presence, the shorter her hair (and her chances for a viable career) gets.

And this isn’t the first time Katie’s hair has attracted attention. Last year, Katie had her flowing girl-next-door tresses trimmed into a soft bob, later sharpening the look with a heavy fringe.
