7 Things Katie Holmes & Jamie Foxx Have In Common That Prove This Duo’s Not As Random As It Seems

Although dating rumors did resurface recently, I still cannot believe that Katie Holmes was spotted holding hands with Jamie Foxx. What? How random is that? I remember hearing rumblings about these two hooking up back in 2013, but I haven't heard a peep about it since and that was a year and a half ago. I honestly forgot all about it. Does this mean that they are having avery long fling? Does this mean that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are dating? No one really knows yet, but I just can't get past the randomness.

Nevertheless, I've given myself the chance to calm down and have given this alleged relationship some more thought. Maybe it's really not random or weird at all. If you think about it, Holmes and Foxx actually have plenty of things in common. I mean, you really have to put some thought into it, but there are a bunch of similarities to be found. You just need to move past the fact that Joey from Dawson's Creek may be dating the guy who won an Oscar for playing Ray Charles, and there are actually more similarities than you may have thought.

They Are Pretty Private

This is probably obvious given that we first heard these dating rumors back in fall 2013 and they are resurfacing so long after the fact. For all we know they've been in a secret relationship for over a year. Still, you do not really hear a lot of gossip about Foxx or Holmes. Up until the low quality hand holding photo surfaced, it's really been a while since I've seen either of their faces covering a tabloid magazine. They are both at this point where they just get attention for their work and I have a feeling this is the result of a conscious effort on their part.

They Are Single Parents To Daughters

Both actors are single parents with daughters. Holmes is mom to fashion super star Suri Cruise, who is eight years old. Foxx has two daughters: Corinne Foxx, 21, and Annalise Bishop, 5. Even though that's a pretty wide range of ages, I bet that Foxx and Holmes could serve as reliable support for each other.

They Have Stared In Biographies

Foxx won an Oscar for his role playing musical legend Ray Charles in the movie Ray, and Holmes played first lady Jackie Kennedy in the television miniseries The Kennedys . Playing a real life person has to be a lot of pressure, because fans expect to see and hear a very specific personality. This means that both Holmes and Foxx had to do a lot of research and preparation for these roles and that they are both diligent workers.

They Have The Same Astrological Sign


Katie Holmes was born December 18, 1978 and Jamie Foxx was born on December 13, 1967. This means that they have the same astrological sign: Sagittarius. This also means that they can conveniently celebrate their birthdays together. Some typical Sagittarius characteristics include being kind, open minded, and enthusiastic. It also said that people who fall under this zodiac sign have minds that are "a sponge" with an "inner quest for truth and knowledge" which makes sense considering these two are actors who really get into their roles, specifically their biographical characters.

They Like To Sing

Obviously, Foxx sang for his role as Ray Charles and he has plenty of singles that have charted. Personally, I don't know if I will ever get Foxx's song "Blame It" out of my head — it's such a timeless club banger. But Foxx isn't the only singer in this (alleged) duo. Holmes has been praised for her singing abilities. She sang in the movie Miss Meadows and during an appearance on Saturday Night Live.

They Rose To Fame On TV


Holmes came into our lives playing Joey Potter on the TV series Dawson's Creek, and Foxx got his start as a stand-up comedian, but appeared on the TV shows Roc and In Living Color early in his career. He also got a lot of attention for The Jamie Foxx Show. This means that they understand what it takes to rise up in the entertainment industry and they can both relate to the grind of television work.

They Live In Los Angeles

This is probably one of the most crucial things that the two have in common. They are both very busy with their careers and children so a long distance relationship would probably be a lot to handle. Living in Los Angeles makes their supposed relationship more convenient and means that it is more likely to be successful (if it is really happening). Now I can't help wondering if Foxx was the reason that Holmes bought a home in Los Angeles this past August.

After giving this way more thought than any self-respecting person ever should, I have to say that I moved past my initial shock in response to this alleged relationship. If Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are together, I think that they have enough in common to make it as a bona fide couple.
