The pretty senior at Toledo's Notre Dame Academy had big dreams: "For some reason I thought it would be possible to be an actress, even though I was from Ohio."
"When fame happens," Katie Holmes has said, "a lot of people think you're changing." Well, who can blame them? In just a few short years the 33-year-old went from girl-next-door Joey Potter to Hollywood superstar mom. She even chopped off her signature long locks in favor of a Suri-friendly angled bob. Still, even with an ever-changing mane, she hasn't altered her pretty, polished styleor her career goals. Aside from her work in films, Holmes co-designs the Holmes & Yang line and remains a sophisticated presence on red carpets and soccer fields alike. In other words: same old Katie Holmes.
