Katie Holmes' reported new career plans have allegedly annoyed Tom Cruise.

It was recently suggested the actress was considering re-training as a lawyer after famously divorcing Hollywood star Tom last year.

Katie won sole custody of their daughter Suri in the legal proceedings - which were finalised in less than two weeks.

There has been much speculation that the former couple differed on raising six-year-old Suri as a Scientologist, which is Tom's faith, and now Katie's new career plans are said to be angering her ex-husband as he thinks they shed a negative light on him. It's also thought that Katie's brushes with the controversial religion are one of the reasons she is considering a change of path.

"Katie's at a crossroads. After her [recent] Broadway show was pulled, she sat back and thought hard about what she wants to do with her life. She's a really intelligent woman, and while she loves acting, she wants to use her brain and the knowledge she's gleaned from her divorce to help others. I think this is all part of the post-divorce 'life-over' Katie's doing in a bid to step out of Tom's shadow," a source told British magazine Grazia.

"She also wants to write and direct movies. With her experience she could write a film based around a mother leaving Scientology.

"I'm sure Tom feels it's sending the message that she had to escape him, when he feels he was very democratic about the divorce," a friend of Katie's added to the publication.

However, the brunette beauty seems to be determined with her plans. She reportedly feels she can really help women who are in the same kind of position as her.

"Katie's saying she's read so many stories in the papers about women leaving Scientology and having to leave their children behind when they go that she wants to help," another friend continued.
