No congratulatory gift for Katie from Chris Klein

12/28/2005 at 04:36 PM ET

Actor Chris Klein says he won’t be sending his ex-fiance Katie Holmes a congratulatory gift when she gives birth to her and fiance Tom Cruise‘s baby next year.

"No, I don’t think so," the 26-year-old said in an interview with AP Radio.

"Her and my relationship is a time in the past. And it’s a time that I’ll always look back with in fondness, but her and I have moved on, and she has a separate life and I have a separate life. And it’s better that we keep it that way."

Chris and Katie got engaged in December 2003 after dating for five years. The couple broke up in March of this year, one month before Katie hooked up with Tom and only three months before she and Tom got engaged.

The future Mr. and Mrs. Cruise announced Katie’s pregnancy in October.

as much as I feel very *weird* in saying this, maybe it is sort of good that Katie is with Tom… I’m not saying Tom is any better because he’s slightly odd in my books but from the way I’ve heard Chris talk when it comes to women he sounds very self-centered and arrogant.

Chris couldn’t of been that bad or else they wouldn’t of been together for 7 years. I think it’s odd that Chris has acted like he has in magazines just since Katie and Tom are together. It almost sounds like he goes out of his way to say those things. No matter what the reason I don’t blame him for not be excited for Katie. I don’t think anyone in his shoes would.

I see nothing wrong with the comments that Chris has made about Katie since they split up. I think he has only had kind things to say. We don’t know why they broke up, maybe they just wanted different things but he says he has fond memories of their time together. If he doesn’t wish to acknowledge the birth of Tom and Katie’s child that is his decision and not everyone would be comfortable giving or accepting a gift to or from an ex.

I’m getting that he’s very disturbed by the whole Scientology thing and Katie’s involvement to the degree she’s gotten. I think he has huge doubts about this relationship with one of the leaders (yes, Tom is considered to be a leader of the cult), and her *pregnancy* – BUT – he’s also wary of any lawsuits coming from them for slander and so is choosing his words and inflections very carefully. When he says: *I don’t think so* – it’s almost implying – *You’re kidding right? Baby, what baby? Gimme a break!*

There are volumes in what he’s not saying and I think he speaks for many in that.

The whole ‘weird’ part of Tom and Katie’s relationship aside, I think Chris’ reaction is normal – he and Katie were together a long time and they were engaged. At some point he thought they would be the ones having a baby together. Even if he’s accepted/glad their relationship ran its course, it must still be a jolt to the system.

In not one of the interviews I’ve read that quoted Chris, have I found him saying anything negative about Katie, Tom, the baby or the relationship. I think he’s very disturbed by the whole mess, but is choosing his words carefully. I think that speaks volumes about him. We don’t know that Katie wasn’t “recruited” DURING Chris and Katie’s relationship. I’m not saying she was, but it’s possible since the new couple made their debut very, very soon after the breakup with Chris. I’m sure he’s seeing a Katie he never knew. I know her family and friends are seeing a different Katie, so why would it be so unusual for him to be concerned and/or not want to be involved in her life now, after being in a serious relationship with her for so many years? If I was him I wouldn’t want to be involved, in any way, in the whole weird, sordid debacle. I think HE is the one who is better off without HER, since she is obviously not the same person he fell in love with. This whole Cruise mess is just off kilter and the cult issues are beyond scary.

I see nothing wrong with this specifical Chris Klein’s comment. But i see a lot wrong in the way he speaks about women in his interviews (the highlight was the Elle article). I think that right now he is on a mission to adfirm his masculinity and young stud status and that’s the way he has chosen. Katie has very little to do with it in my opinion. Also, there were a lot of rumors about Katie and Chris way before their official break up, starting from september 2004. And they weren’t togheter for 7 years, but 5. I followed Katie’s career from the beginning. I’m not pleased with the whole Tom Cruise situation for many reason, but i wish her and her baby only good things. In my opinion she doesn’t deserve the amount of insults she has received, even here, a place who celebrates new lifes.

Another thing that comes to mind here is that if someone is dating a woman who is *saving herself* for after marriage and then he turns around and bang – she’s gone and gotten pregnant with another guy – that’s gotta hurt, especially when you’ve been waiting for 7 years!

I think Katie’s virginity comment gets misconstrued. People forget that she made that comment to CosmoGirl when she was 16 years old – I’m sure things changed when she started seriously dating.

I agree that Chris came off as an ass in the Elle interview, but I also agree with posters who say that he’s choosing his words carefully. About the gift, I think it’s kind of odd that they even asked him – not many people give or receive gifts from their exes once they break up. I could see if they had stayed friendly, but it doesn’t sound like they are at all.

I think he came out as an ass in the Elle interview, but it also could have been taken out of context, you know how that happens.
I cant believe the nerv of some of these interviewers to ask if he;d be sending a gift. They asked JLO the same question when Bengar had their baby….I mean it’s so cruel to ask that, no one knows the reasons behind their break up and asking them personal questions like that has gotta make them uncomfortable, I know I would be!

What’s wrong with his comments (sans the poor grammar)? Do people send congratulatory cards to all of their exes who have gone and had kids/gotten married?

michelle anne on

I am sure katie could careless.Mind you why should Chris say or send anything? I wouldn’t want anything from my ex or expect it form them either hense the reason we are ex’s?
Let her and him be ex’s and get on with their lives’s not them seeming to force the issue it’s the press.LOL. they been apart for awhile let them both be!

Melissa on

I am with those of you who posed the question as to why anyone would ask if Chris (or anyone else) was going to send a gift to an ex. But, I guess there are always those in the media who want to “stir the pot” so there will be more gossip to write about. It really was a ludicrous question to ask in the first place.

As far as the whole Katie/Tom relationship goes, it does appear less than conventional to most of us, but we don’t know the whole story or what goes on in their lives or why they make certain choices. The relationship and the addition of a baby in the manner they’ve chosen is a little unnerving, especially in view of Tom’s beliefs, but to each his own. I hope when all is said and done, the baby is healthy and has a well-adjusted life.
