Katie Holmes Hinted At 'New Phase' During Interview Prior to Tom Cruise Divorce Filing
But in a mid-May interview, Holmes not-so-subtly hinted that there was trouble in paradise.
"I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier," the 33-year-old actress told Elle magazine — on stands July 17 — six weeks before the bombshell split. “I'm starting to come into my own. It's like a new phase."
What did Holmes say about her high-profile marriage?
The former Dawson's Creek star opened up about coming into her own.
"He has been Tom Cruise for 30 years," she said when asked about her husband, 50, who just landed atop Forbes magazine's list of Hollywood's highest-paid actors. "I know who I am and where I am and where I want to go, so I want to focus on that.
And her career, according to the actress and fashion designer, was not helped — but perhaps hindered — by being Mrs. Tom Cruise. "Things are not handed to anyone," mom to Suri, 6, admitted. "If anything, you work a little bit harder when you’re in such visible circumstances."
