Katie Holmes graces the cover of Elle magazine’s August 2012 issue wearing a Tom Ford top and Holmes & Yang trousers. Inside, she discusses whether being married to Tom Cruise has helped her career, Tom himself, and what life is like in her 30s.
On whether being Mrs. Tom Cruise helped her in the industry: “Things are not handed to anyone. If anything, you work a little bit harder when you’re in such visible circumstances.”
On Tom: “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.”
On being in her 30s: “I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. 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.”
