Katie Holmes' Cooking Is Not Good: 'Me In The Kitchen Is A Comedy'

She might be getting rave reviews for her role in Broadway's "Dead Accounts," but Katie Holmes kills it in the kitchen ... literally.

The actress, 33, reveals that she's a terrible cook in the December issue of Vogue magazine, in which she talks about her dramatic, and comical, real-life as a newly single mother.

“Like, just me in the kitchen is a comedy,” Holmes tells Vogue, adding, “But it’s heartbreaking for me going through it..."

Her "Dead Accounts" co-star, Norbert Leo Butz, who took part in the interview, laughed at her confession, admitting, “Because you’re such a bad cook?”

“Yes. But for others, they probably think it’s really funny, because all the pans are out, and I get frustrated, and suddenly it’s burning," Holmes, who finalized her divorce from Tom Cruise earlier this year, says.

“And I went to Eataly [Mario Batali's NYC market],” she laughs. “I got the stuff. And it still turned out, like -- not good!”

Holmes, who currently lives in Manhattan with her 6-year-old daughter Suri, is content with life in the Big Apple, and looks forward to starring in more plays on Broadway.

"It's exciting because there's no close-up, so a person has to use every inch of themselves," she tells Vogue of why she loves live theater. "So you're never done -- and who wants to be done? It's just another opportunity to keep growing."

Well Katie, here's hoping you're not-so-tasty cooking skills grow along with your career!
