Hot mom alert! Katie Holmes is looking better than ever on the cover of November’s Marie Claire.

The 32-year-old actress talks about how she transitions between work and family. Toting daughter Suri around on set during the cover shoot, she says she handles the stress of being a working mom because “you have to.”

She adds, “As an actress who is also a mother, you don’t have the luxury of drama.”

When it comes to being there for her daughter, she’s always on the job. “My daughter was with me the other day at a work event and it was a long day,” she says. “I took out some paper and markers that I had in my bag, and someone said to me, ‘Oh, that is so cute,’ and I looked at her and thought, No, this is not cute. This is what all mothers have to do.”
