  • Katie Holmes was married to Tom Cruise from 2006 to 2012, with whom she has a daughter, Suri.
  • Following her divorce from Cruise, Holmes dated Jamie Foxx until 2019.
  • In a new interview, Holmes has opened up about life following her split from the Mission Impossible star.

Katie Holmes is currently enjoying a prolific period of work, with the release of movies Brahms: The Boy II and The Secret: Dare to Dream, and as she prepares to direct Rare Objects.

Amid her recent success, Holmes reflected on past challenges during a new interview with InStyle. In particular, the former Dawson's Creek star spoke about what it was like moving to New York with daughter Suri in 2012, right around the time she also filed for divorce from Tom Cruise. Holmes explained, "That time was intense. It was a lot of attention, and I had a little child on top of it. We had some funny moments out and about in public."

But as she's gotten older, the actress has come to terms with life in the public eye, and sounds more at peace with herself than ever.

She told InStyle, "Obviously, as a public person, I've gotten a lot of attention at different periods in my life. And when you have a lot of attention, sometimes you don't want to leave the house because it's just too much."

She continued, "You can get consumed by what people think, but suddenly you just decide to do things on your own terms. I feel like I'm finally figuring that out. I'm getting the projects I want made and just relaxing a little. I've been around for a long time, and I'm still here! I can't believe it."

But we can believe it, and we can't wait to see what Katie does next.

This Boston-based crime thriller belongs to its two Irish Catholic vigilante killers (Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus) in search of truth (veritas) and justice (aequitas)—or so their matching tattoos imply. Sure, it's not the best-made film and, sure, it doesn't have the tightest of scripts, but Troy Duffy's mafia-offing mania is pure entertainment.
