Holmes, who wore a short printed skirt and beige blouse, smiles as she walked alongside Strong. "They're totally just friends and have been since The Romantics," a source tells Us Weekly. The friends spent the afternoon seeing an off-Broadway production of If You Haven't Found It Yet starring Jake Gyllenhaal. "He's very plugged in to the New York theater scene and is showing her the ropes," the source explains of Strong's friendship with Holmes.
After five years of marriage, the Dawson's Creek actress filed for divorce from Cruise, 50, on June 28. Holmes was given primary custody of their six-year-old daughter Suri. "She's not dating nor is she interested in dating yet," the insider adds. "She's just getting her life together and focusing on her daughter."
Holmes is set to head back to Broadway this fall for the first time since 2008, when she performed in All My Sons. She will also show her first collection from Holmes & Yang at New York Fashion Week with design partner Jeanne Yang.
