Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to snub Oscars?
London: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes may not attend next month’s Oscars ceremony – because they are apparently disappointed with the host, Anne Hathaway.
The 28-year-old actress, who will be presenting the 83rd Academy Awards alongside ‘127 Hours’ actor James Franco, upset Katie by mocking her on US comedy show Saturday Night Live in November.
‘The Princess Diaries’ star was guest-presenting the comedy show when she mimicked Katie in a sketch, speaking in breathy tones and constantly tucking her hair behind her ear.
“Tom and Katie don’t want to have to cross paths with Anne,” the Daily Mail quoted a Hollywood source as saying.
“They used to be friends and took Anne to a Tina Turner concert in 2008 when Anne split up from her boyfriend Raffaello Follieri.
“Katie feels they were really supportive at a difficult time so she feels let down that Anne took to national TV to make fun of her.
“Anne didn’t even warn her it was going to be on TV.
“The whole thing has left a sour taste with Tom,” the source added.
A spokesman for Cruise said he had yet to decide whether he would attend the Oscars.
“It’s too early to confirm – it depends on shoot schedules,” Cruise’s rep said.
