Yesterday not one, but two publications reported on the screening of Son of No One at Sundance, saying Katie Holmes' performance elicited "a collective groan" and mass "exodus" from the theater. The problem? None of this actually happened.
In an angry defense of Holmes, Roger Friedman of Showbiz 411 explains how the bogus gossip traveled from The Hollywood Reporter, to Us, and on to many other gossip sites, including our own Dirt Bag roundup. The fact that most celebrity gossip is BS and half-truths shouldn't surprise anyone, but what's odd about this story is the size of the lie and the lack of motive.
