Katie Holmes appears on this month’s issue of More Magazine. We can’t say that we have heard of this magazine before, we haven’t. But maybe Katie can’t get the cover of more popular magazines if she isn’t willing to talk about scientology. So if she’s not going to say something interesting, she’s gonna get other magazine covers. She did talk about her upcoming films and how she’s living her life these days, you know minus the Tom Cruise controlling her part. Heads up, she doesn’t really say much. But, do read on.
Katie Holmes on life after her divorce with Tom Cruise
You’ve got to keep going. In every part of your life. Focus on the positive. Stay creative. Go to things that interest you. Do work that’s fulfilling. Challenge yourself. What’s amazing about the human spirit, there are so many people doing inspiring things. If you focus on that, it makes your life richer.
Katie on getting famous too fast
When I was a young actor, things happened quickly. My second job was Dawson’s Creek, and suddenly I was known. I was 18 years old; I had no life experience. I felt, ‘I don’t have anything to bring. I don’t know what it’s like to be, say, really angry. I’m doing the best I can.’ But with age I’ve gained confidence. I understand the kind of stories I want to tell. I have more experience in business. I feel more certain.
Katie on playing a bipolar character in her upcoming film
I gained a greater empathy for people who are struggling with mental illness. Before the movie, I’d hear something about it and think, ‘Wow. But that’s over there.’ Unfortunately, we’re quick to judge, especially in this day of social media and the Internet—which I think is an ugly-maker. Everybody looks ugly when they’re on the Internet. But I wouldn’t want to live a flat life, with no pain.
Katie on whether she’s dating anyone
That’s not something I want to answer…[I don’t] have a five or 10-year plan. I feel like I’m still a teenager in a lot of ways. I do a lot of things I did then. I paint, I color. I cook sometimes. I still feel like a girl. I don’t quite feel like a woman, maybe because I’m the baby of my family. I’ll probably be 90 and feel like, ‘Not a woman yet!’ Ha!
