Katie Holmes (opens in new tab) has been learning a lot during her time in quarantine with her 14-year-old daughter, Suri Cruise (opens in new tab). And, in a rare move, the actress is opening up about what that learning process has been like.

"I like to keep her out of my interviews, but I will say that this time of quarantine has been such a lesson," Katie explained in a recent interview with Australia's The Daily Telegraph (opens in new tab). "Just really looking at everything you have and celebrating the simplicity of making dinner and [spending] that time together."

Katie rarely (opens in new tab) discusses her daughter in the press, but this isn't the first time she's offered insight into her relationship with Suri. Earlier this year, she opened up about Suri during an interview with InStyle (opens in new tab) magazine (opens in new tab), saying: 

"I love her so much. My biggest goal has always been to nurture her into her individuality. To make sure she is 100 percent herself and strong, confident, and able. And to know it. She came out very strong—she's always been a strong personality. She'll pick an activity and work her butt off until she's really good at it. Then she's like, 'Okay, I'm going to try the next thing.' She's very focused and a hard worker. I have to say, I did recently see some fan site [about her] posted when she was a baby, and it was very intense. We were followed a lot when she was little. I just wanted her outside, so I would walk her around to find parks at, like, 6 in the morning when nobody would see us. But there's one video where I'm holding her—she was 2 at the time—and she starts waving at the cameras. She's pretty special."
