Hollywood Calling
Hollywood knocked at her door with the approval of the audition tapes sent to Ang Lee the casting director of 'The Ice Storm' in 1997.

IN 1999, Holmes played a supermarket clerk in Doug Liman's 'Go'.

Another film 'The Gift' came out the same year where she played the antithesis of Joey Potter with Cate Blanchett, Keanu Reeves, Gary Cole and Greg Kinnear. This movie also marked her first nude role.

She had worked in a string of movies and television serials showing her as a loner, disillusioned person, suffering from anxiety etc. So 'Abandon' in 2002 was no different. Written by Oscar winner Stephen Gaghan, it portrayed Holmes as a delusional, homicidal college student named and her screen name was also Katie.

Katie...Get out of Scientology while you still can. It is a cult and science fiction.

Think about it. "...a human is an immortal alien spiritual being, termed a thetan, that is trapped on planet Earth in a physical body. Hubbard described these "thetans" in "Space Opera" cosmogony. The thetan has had innumerable past lives and it is accepted in Scientology that lives preceding the thetan's arrival on Earth lived in extraterrestrial cultures". How can anyone believe this garbage? It's a money making cult from a science fiction writer.

Please, please get our before it's too late!

Hi there,
I'm inspired by you and the journey you have made to get where you are.

I am a breeder of the Asian Leopard Bengal Kittens, A beautiful spotted wild looking breed. I sell many, but would like to sell some to the celebrities, because a kitten can be left home alone when you are working all day, and will take the love and attention when you are home. Celebrities work long hours and are gone for days or weeks at a time. Cats are easier to take care of then a dog, because they don't need to be walked twice a day and don't need the attention like a puppy or dog. It is not fair for a dog to be left home alone or indoor all day, where a kitten or cat can go potty in a litter box and can be left alone for hours and will sleep most of the time.

Just consider a kitten over a dog, or both. Bengals love dogs and get along beautifully.
You can go to my website to see just some of my Bengals, but have newborn kitten pictures for you to see upon request. They are adorable, but not able to leave until they are 8 or 9 weeks old.

If interested or would like to see some pictures of the newborn leopard spotted bengal kittens go to www.bengalbabies.org.
Thanks,
Carrie Donahue
Newport Coast Ca.
