Katie Holmes talked divorcing Tom Cruise during a recent interview with DuJour magazine.
“Even early on, when I was a young actor and all of a sudden people knew who I was, my dad told me, ‘Don’t let that change how you live your life.’ I’ve always sort of approached it that way. You have to continue to do the things you want to do and not let outside forces dictate,” Holmes, 35, told the mag.
Holmes doesn’t credit her headline-grabbing divorce, however, for reigniting her ambitions. “It’s the life of an actor. We don’t really have a lot of choice in the matter. You have dry spells, and then you have times when there is a lot of opportunity,” the actress, who only completed a handful of projects during the couple’s relationship, noted. In fact, she hopes to direct and produce more but admits she “could rehearse for years.”
