Katie Holmes looked the image of grieving widow Jackie Kennedy yesterday as she filmed a scene from the funeral of murdered US president John F Kennedy for her new TV miniseries.
The wife of Tom Cruise donned a black Sixties-style shift dress, matching swing jacket, long leather gloves and a Chanel handbag for her role as Jackie O. The look was completed with a bouffant bob, though it was clear that style was the last thing on Katie’s mind as she prepared for the moving scene.
The actress, who is pictured here with the young actor playing Jackie's three-year-old son, John Jr, revealed to The New York Times that she has sought counsel from her husband, Tom Cruise, to play the difficult part. “I definitely come home and say to him, ‘So, imagine a scene… how would you play it?’ And he's helpful and sweet and gracious.”
The TV series that Katie is filming follows the rise and demise of the famous American political family.
