Katie Holmes has only been single for about a week and already we’re casting bets on who she should date next. My guess is that her ex-fiancé Chris Klein will come out of the woodwork, but who knows, she could surprise us all and end up with Johnny Depp. Probably not, but stranger things have happened in Hollywood.
Hollyscoop talked to “Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger about who Katie should date next and she rounded up a list of hot and eligible celebrity bachelors that would make perfect picks for Katie.
Patti Stanger suggests Bradley Cooper because “he loves smart savvy girls like Katie” and he’s also all about “East Coast family values [that would] suit her well.”
The actor also has one marriage under his belt to actress Jennifer Esposito, so both he and Katie can bond over divorce and a possible second marriage.
Bradley most notably dated Renee Zellweger for two years, but clearly things with older women hasn’t worked in his favor since the couple broke up.
Patti’s next choice for Katie is James Franco, “he’s independent, creative, sexy, funny, smart, intellectual, and he teaches a class at NYU! Geographically perfect!”
James Franco split up with his ex-girlfriend Ahna O’Reilly last year after a nearly five year relationship, about the same time that Katie was with Tom. James hasn’t really had any high profile relationships, so Katie could be his first A-list girlfriend!
Before you freak out, Patti’s last suggestion for Katie is Ashton Kutcher. Okay, so he’s maybe dating Mila Kunis but that honestly won’t last…in walks Katie Holmes.
“[Ashton] knows what it’s like to live in the fish bowl,” says Patti, “[He’s an] amazing step dad and could help make her fashion line a household name.”
It’s true, Katie is trying to move into the fashion world and it wouldn’t hurt to have Twitter-King Ashton Kutcher tweet out a few “buy my girlfriend's clothes” mentions.
Before Tom Cruise, Katie was with Chris Klein for five years, they were even engaged.
According to celebrity astrologer Terry Nazon, it’s in the stars for Katie to get back together with an “ex-lover.”
After Katie and Chris broke-up, Katie rebounded with Tom less than a year later, what I’m trying to say is, the world is her playground, a playground full of single Hollywood men, that is.
