It’s been a couple of years since Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise. Yet, we’re still talking about it (because that’s apparently the type of treatment Hollywood couples get when it comes to relationships).

Even Holmes, 35, is still talking about it. But what separates her from the rest of us is this: she’s pretty much done talking about Tom Cruise.

“I don’t want that moment in my life to define me, to be who I am,” she tells PEOPLE. “I don’t want that to be what I’m known as. I was an actor before, an actor during an and actor now.”

In the cover story, Holmes also touches on her new approach on life.

“I don’t have any fear now, I don’t have a lot of rules for myself, and I don’t take myself too seriously,” she says.

As for dear Suri, Holmes’ 8-year-old daughter with Cruise, that part of her life “means everything to me.”

“I’m learning every day, and I have been since the minute I became a mom.”
