White picket fence
With a stay-at-home mother, a lawyer father, four siblings and a white picket fence, Katie Holmes had an idyllic childhood. She was baptized Roman Catholic, and even graduated from her all-girls high school with a 4.0.
At 14, Katie began modeling and landed an agent. By sending an audition tape to L.A., she scored a role in Ang Lee’s "The Ice Storm."
