Holmes, on the cover not to promote any new film role, but to talk up her Holmes & Yang fashion line (Holmes and stylist Jeanne Yang yesterday announced that they will stage their first presentation at New York fashion week this autumn), discussed how her life has changed since she married Cruise in 2006.
‘I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin,’ now that she’s in her 30s, she said. ‘I feel sexier. I think in my twenties—it’s like you’re trying too hard to figure everything out… I’m starting to come into my own. It’s like a new phase.’
As for whether this life stage includes her estranged husband, she has this to say about Cruise: ‘He has been Tom Cruise for 30 years... I know who I am and where I am and where I want to go, so I want to focus on that.’
Loud and clear, Katie—welcome to your new phase.
