Katie Holmes ‘Glamour’ Interview: ‘The Giver’ Star Gabs On Gift Of Motherhood And Geeking Out On Meryl Streep

Katie Holmes is opening up about upcoming acting roles and single motherhood in the August issue of Glamour magazine.

The 35-year-old actress sat down with Zac Posen for the intimate interview at the fashion designer’s New York City studio.

Katie Holmes’ latest project is an adaptation of the children’s book classic, The Giver. Holmes stars beside Taylor Swift and Meryl Streep in the story about a dystopian society.

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

The Giver is scheduled for release on August 15.

Aside from acting, Holmes told Glamour that taking care of her daughter, Suri, keeps her inspired.

“Motherhood is the greatest gift. When I became mother, my life changed completely… I didn’t know how much love I had in me. It’s overwhelming. Every day I discover more about this spectacular human being.”

While Suri Cruise is considered a miniature style icon, Holmes described her as an average 7-year-old. Holmes told Glamour that Suri loves the movie Frozen and that her favorite foods are plain pasta, chocolate chip pancakes, and chicken fingers.

The interview also tackles Katie Holmes’ relationship with Zac Posen. The fashion designer describes how he got to know Holmes, saying:

“Katie, I feel like we really got know each other a few months ago over cheese fries at a diner. But we first met when we were really young. You were still on [Dawson’s Creek]… And then years later I saw you at a Vanity Fair Oscar party. You were glowing, and there weren’t many people around. And I just wanted to, like, reach across the room and give you a hug.”

Katie Holmes showed off her glow during the Glamour cover photo shoot, wearing designs from Madewell, Valentino, and Michael Kors. Holmes said she has “learned a greater appreciation” of fashion designers after creating her own women’s fashion line, Holmes and Yang.

On set, Holmes also sat down for a playful game of word associations.

The one topic off limits in the Glamour feature? Katie Holmes’ former high profile relationship with Tom Cruise. The relationship broke down in 2012 amidst rumors that the Church of Scientology meddled in the divorce proceedings.
