Katie Holmes Loves Box Wine

Shop at Box Wine Awards

Katie Holmes may have been married to one of Hollywood’s top stars, but the actress insists she’s a down-to-earth Ohio girl at heart.

In a recent interview with the New York Times, the Dawson’s Creek actress revealed that she’s a true Midwestern girl and went as far as saying “I mean, I’ve had box wine. It’s good. And it’s a lot easier to open.” We couldn’t agree more!

Box wine is one of many cultural signifiers in “Dead Accounts,” in which the actress plays the roll of Lorna, a defensive sad sack who has moved back home with her parents in Cincinnati after a failed relationship.

That image doesn’t exactly square with Ms. Holmes’s new life as a glamorous single mom in Manhattan, four months after her divorce from Tom Cruise. But if Lorna passes for anything, she passes for normal, and normal is what Ms. Holmes aspires to these days.

Perhaps we should consider signing  her up as a judges for the 2013 Box Wine Awards. Wouldn’t that be nice?!
