Katie Holmes was hounded by Anonymous, a group of Scientology protesters who don't like that Holmes converted to Scientology after marrying Tom Cruise. To defend Katie, Scientologists hired groupies who adored her to offset the protesters.

Anonymous made it clear they were not protesting Katie Holmes, but wanted to promote their view that Scientology is a cult and that they fear Katie is unable to leave the clutches of Cruise and the Church of Scientology.

Implications - The whole affair involving the Scientologist group Anonymous did not seem to bother either Katie Holmes or Tom Cruise. The actress, now in her late twenties, was able to hold her own against reputable celebrities in the packed theatre -- amongst which was John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson.
