Are Katie Holmes and Jason Segal dating? Not even close. According to a recent report in OK! magazine, the pair were seen getting cozy together after meeting on the set of How I Met Your Mother. However, Holmes’ rep explained the story was fabricated. “The story is completely untrue,” Leslie Sloane said. “The two have not spoken since she appeared on How I Met Your Mother.
Segal began dating Michelle Williams in March 2012. A source close to the former couple said the pair were “totally in love.” However, the lovebirds decided to end their romance last year in February. Prior to the Oz the Great and Powerful actress, Segal dated Freaks and Geeks co-star Linda Cardellini for a few years.
The rumors on Holmes and Segal dating are false, but that does not mean the former Dawson’s Creek actress is not dating anyone at all. Holmes filed for divorce from actor Tom Cruise June 29, 2012. The couple signed a settlement July 9, 2012. This was the first divorce for Holmes and the third for the Jack Reacher star, who was previously married to Mimi Rogers from 1987 to 1990 and Nicole Kidman from 1990 to 2001.
Holmes and Cruise were married for five years. They began dating in April 2005. A month later, the Vanilla Sky actor famously professed his love for Holmes during The Oprah Winfrey Show, where he jumped up and down on the couch. The lovebirds married Nov. 18, 2006 in a Scientology ceremony in Bracciano, Italy. Their daughter, Suri was born in the same year.
Following their split, Cruise later admitted that his commitment to the church of Scientology played a big part in the failure of their marriage. During the $50 million dollar defamation case against Bauer media, lawyers asked the actor if Holmes left because of his religion. “Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes,” he responded.
The single mom has full custody of Suri, who is now seven years old. The mother and daughter duo were recently spotted in NYC, where they attended the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship. They wore matching colors, and even watched the game in a similar fashion. Both held their chins up with their left hands.
Holmes will be returning to TV soon in a new, untitled drama. Holmes will also appear on the big screen in the film, The Giver. The movie will premiere August 15. Other actors involved with the motion picture include Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges and Taylor Swift.
Apart from debunking rumors about himself and Holmes dating, Segal also has his plate full with new projects. He will be seen in the film Sex Tape with Cameron Diaz. The romantic comedy will be released worldwide July 15. The Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor also just wrapped up the nine season-series, How I Met Your Mother. The CBS comedy caused plenty of controversy for its surprise finale. The show won several awards throughout its run including the 2012 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Network TV Comedy and Favorite TV Comedy Actor (won by Neil Patrick Harris).
