Katie Holmes Gives First Interview Since Divorce
Katie Holmes has given her first interview since her high-profile divorce from Tom Cruise.
Holmes, perhaps understandably, wasn’t an entirely open book when speaking to Woman’s Wear Daily – most of the interview focuses on her forthcoming Fashion Week debut, and personal questions were batted back in most cases – but there were still answers that suggested the 33-year-old is coping well with her ordeal.
Speaking about how she deals with the constant press intrusions, the actress said, “I have a lot of feelings about the press,” before adding of her troubles, “There are a lot of people with much bigger problems and who are less fortunate. I try to keep it all in perspective.”
Holmes also told WWD she tries to do something every day “without being afraid to fail” because “who cares? At least you tried. It’s usually the people who haven’t tried who are the naysayers.”
Chins up all round, by the sounds of it.
Holmes will be making her Fashion Week debut on Wednesday, September 12, when she and stylist Jeanne Yang will launch their new Spring/Summer collection under their collaborative label Holmes & Yang. Expect as many cameras to be pointed at Ms Holmes as the clothes themselves.
In other Katie Holmes news, the actress has just been named the first A-list celebrity face of cosmetics company Bobbi Brown, signing a contract reportedly worth up to $3m (which, if previous reports are to be believed, is equivalent to be being married to Tom Cruise for one year).
