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.”
“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.”
