Divorce a 'lucky' strike for Katie Holmes: Joan Rivers

No surprise ... Joan Rivers says TomKat divorce didn't come as a shock to Hollywood.

No surprise ... Joan Rivers says TomKat divorce didn't come as a shock to Hollywood.

Joan Rivers has voiced her opinion on Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' divorce.

The outspoken host of E! Channel's Fashion Police has joked that Katie is "lucky" to be divorcing Tom Cruise, who is the highest paid actor in the world.

The acid-tongued comedienne didn't hold back on her controversial view of the A-list couple's marriage breakdown.

Lucky in loveless? ... Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise.

Lucky in loveless? ... Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise.

"Katie Holmes is going to come out of it so rich," the 79-year-old star told Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O. "She's lucky".

Commenting on her Fashion Police series, Joan said: "Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes we will have a field day with that."

Rivers revealed that the news Tom and Katie were splitting did not come as a shock to some celebrity insiders in the US.

"No one in the community is surprised," said Rivers, who has close connections within the Hollywood circuit.

The star went on to criticise Katie's acting skills, saying she wasn't impressed with her recent small screen outing.

"She's not a very good actress. Did you see her try and play John F Kennedy's wife? She was so bad he shot himself in it!"

  • She she really take a long hard look at herself in the mirror before she goes around criticizing and making fun of others. Is her face always stuck with the same expression?!

    • Probably, but she's 79. If I look like that when I'm 79 I will be one happy girl...

    • I'm sure anyone who goes under the knife that much can look like that at 79.. or even 100. No credits to her.

    • Not only is she 79 but she's had about 40 years of plastic surgery.

      I thought Katie did a reasonable job as Jackie O.

    • Lexie I am pretty sure Joan did not look like that 40 years ago when the original photo was taken. She does not look like that now that is for sure. That is a photo shopped release is all but I must commend the artist's use of the airbrush

    • She makes fun of herself all the time. She always has.

      Yes she may look a bit disasterous but why shouldn't she make fun of TomKat? It's her job and she's so good at it.

    • You clearly don't know who Joan Rivers is do you......

      She can take as good as she gives, Joan Rivers is just as hard on herself as she is others, and has been doing so for decades! She was a stand up prior to what she does now, and a darn funny one at that!
      She pokes just as much fun at herself as other people.... And high on the topic list of things she has a laugh at is all the plastic surgery she has had, she does not deny she has had lots of work done.....
