v5t2frunjgavf2uvHolmes appears on the cover of the February 2015 issue of Red magazine. She talks about her 20s, being supportive and her image.

I think that it’s a very interesting time for artists right now because of social media and camera phones. I don’t think you ever know how you’ll be portrayed. Any story can attach itself to your image. I don’t pay much attention because I’d spend the whole time worrying. I just don’t go out much to avoid it.

I totally admire women who go back to work six weeks after giving birth but when she was little, I was not ready. I was a very nervous mother — like, sleeping next to her crib — and I was in that mode for a long time.

Katie Holmes interview


Seacrest interviews Holmes during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about her role in the film The Giver. 

It’s about this alternate reality where it’s this community where people take injections everyday to numb their emotions, and they live in a very structured, yet sterile environment. And I play the mother of Jonas, who is selected to be the receiver of actual real human memories. It’s a powerful movie because you see visually, this world that’s such a bubble, yet safe, and then you watch this character experience such euphoria, but also such extreme pain.

Being in a movie with Meryl Streep was a huge dream come true. When the cameras rolled, she was spot-on and such a pro. It was just a thrill to walk on set with her.

The world has changed so much since then. Social media, and what people are watching. But I think innocence was one of the draws of the show. It was these kids going through first love and heartbreak and growing up and friendships changing. So I’m glad that the innocence still holds up.

Admits Church was factor in divorce

During a deposition for his lawsuit against Bauer Media, Cruise admits his involvement with the Church led to his divorce from Holmes. When asked if she ever claimed it was due to his religion or because she wanted to protect their daughter from Scientology, he responded:

Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes.

Cruise also admits their daughter, Suri, is no longer a Scientologist.

I hope this is a peaceful year for a lot of people in the world. When you look back on the last year, there were a lot of tragedies — Hurricane Sandy, the Connecticut shooting. I just hope it’s a good year for everyone.

Divorce settlement

Cruise main condition was that he wanted to retain contact with Suri. Although the full financials details of their divorce are never publicly disclosed, Holmes reportedly collects about $400,000 annually from Cruise in child support for their Suri. The payments will continue until Suri turns 18 and ultimately amount to $4.8 million. Holmes does not receive any direct spousal support, per their prenuptual agreement. Holmes is granted sole custody of Suri.

This case has been settled and the agreement has been signed.  We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life.

Holmes, Cruise divorce

Holmes and Cruise decide to divorce after five years of marriage. Cruise admits his surprise that Holmes files for divorce five days before his 50th birthday.

To be 50 and to have experiences and to think you have a grip on everything, and then it hits you — this is it, what life can do to you. Life is a tragicomedy. You need to have a sense of humor.

Holmes attorney Jonathan Wolfe:

This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.

Katie Holmes interview

Seacrest interviews Holmes during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about how she felt when she read the script for the film Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.

When I read it, it was very scary and I actually started hearing noises in my house because the characters felt so real to me that I believed all of the scares. I identified with all of these characters and I was thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, what would I do [in that situation]. Oh my gosh, what was that?!’ It was so well written.

katieHolmes appears on the cover of People to discuss how she’s loving the motherly role and how she’s blossomed as a working mom.

She’s very focused when she’s at work, then in between setups she’d be very focused on Suri. She had to be all things to all people. It’s a challenge, but she certainly is up for it. She’s really good at it.
