Cape Town - Hollywood star Katie Holmes celebrated joining Twitter on Friday with tweets full of praise for South Africa.
Holmes, who is filming a movie with Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges and singer Taylor Swift, said in her first post: “So happy to be on twitter!!!!!! Sending first tweets from South Africa!!!!!”
She retweeted a candid photo, posted by producer Nikki Silver, of herself and Swift standing with their cast mates on the set of The Giver.
The Dawson’s Creek star is the latest name to join Phillip Noyce’s adaptation of Lois Lowry’s 1993 sci-fi novel.
The Giver is set in a dystopian society which is disturbed when a 12-year-old boy named Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) is selected to learn from an elderly man, The Giver (Bridges), about the pain and strife of the real world.
Holmes will play the mother of Thwaites’s teenage character, who is described as being a strict, law-abiding citizen.
Earlier this week, the Daily Mail in London reported Holmes had taken her seven-year-old daughter Suri Cruise on safari to Aquila Game Reserve, outside Cape Town.
They were pictured walking happily from the luxury lodge to embark on a day’s animal spotting, Katie carrying Suri’s furry toy giraffe.
The excited seven-year-old skipped along beside her mother, dressed in a pink striped shirt and floral leggings.
She sensibly swopped her favourite mini heels for closed-toe Toms pumps, in glittery pink.
