Filming: Holmes, shooting a scene from Son of No One with Channing Tatum in New York last April
Katie Holmes has been wrongly savaged over her latest movie.
A film trade writer at the Sundance Film Festival claimed there was a 'mass exodus' to leave The Son of No One before the movie ended and that people groaned when Ms Holmes appeared on screen.
Daily Mail film writer Baz Bamigboye said: 'I was at the screening at the Yarrow Hotel on Monday and such claims are lies and were penned to damage the actress' professional reputation.'
He added: 'Audiences groan at the Cannes Film Festival all the time but I've never heard folk groan at Sundance.'
As a a result of the reports the actress, who has a small supporting role in the film, was said to be in two minds about attending the world premiere on Friday.
The Son of No One was directed by Dito Montiel and features a powerful performance by Channing Tatum as a New York cop who may have been involved in a double murder when he was a schoolboy.
