Newly-Divorced Katie Holmes' Career Evolution (PHOTOS)
With her divorce settlement with Tom Cruise signed and dated, Katie Holmes is free to step out of her ex-husband's shadows and focus on her film and television career.
Though her resume may not be as extensive as 55-year-old Cruise's, Holmes, 33, has starred in a number of critically acclaimed films like Thank You for Smoking and Batman Begins.
Will the mom-of-one will take edgier roles (like her topless scene in The Gift), or will she stick to family-friendly flicks such as her most recent work, Jack & Jill?
Launch the gallery for Holmes' career evolution.
"My hope though is that she doesn’t do anything that is too risqué," brand strategist Monica Cost -- who works with the likes of Isaiah Washington and Reebok International -- tells Celebuzz regarding Holmes' film career. "Sometimes people rebel against the system and being the good girl, but I think that will probably set her back a bit."
"The public won’t buy it and that’ll be another whole media frenzy," she adds.
The actress was also recently cast in Responsible Adults as a medical student, and a single mother in Molly, a film she co-wrote and will co-produce.
