Katie Holmes is talking ch-ch-ch-changes. And they’re all good, she emphasized in an interview with USA Today. It’s been a long and winding road to transforming herself after her highly publicized dramatic divorce with Tom Cruise, but Holmes sees the light at the end of the traumatic tunnel.

“I feel very happy,” declared Katie. “And I am excited for projects that are coming up.”

Those projects range from the TV miniseries The Kennedys to publicizing her starring role in the film Miss Meadows. But when it comes to what really makes her happiest, it’s all about her 8-year-old daughter, Suri Cruise.

“I love being a mom. It’s challenging sometimes, but it’s such a beautiful relationship.”

Part of the challenge for this famous mom is raising her daughter in a very public spotlight, as the video below shows.

Holmes also emphasizes the blessings of family in discussing her life. She’s both warm and witty in reflecting on those relationships.

“My grandma just turned 90. My mom got her a hot-pink boa and crown. That’s what we’re all going for. A hot pink boa and a crown,” joked Katie.

When it comes to taking on sexy scenes in movies, however, Katie steers clear of roles requiring hot pink boas. Instead, she’s excited about the comedic depths of her semi-sexy role in Miss Meadows, she told Extra.

“Miss Meadows… this was her first experience, so I thought it was funny to watch someone of her age kind of go through that and get a kick out of it. She really got a kick out of it, and I thought that was really funny. You don’t really think about somebody getting a kick out of it. It’s usually something else.”

What does Katie enjoy in her personal life, in addition to her daughter? She’s a fitness enthusiast, reported NineMSN. Among Katie’s exercise passions are boxing and Kray Maga, which is a form of Israeli combat fighting.

Holmes is following Gwyneth Paltrow’s lead by going on an organic low-carb diet and using Tracy Anderson as her celebrity trainer.

“She kicked things off by going on the 3-day food cleanse as she wants to glow from the inside out,” revealed a source.

As the Inquisitr revealed, Katie Holmes and Gwyneth Paltrow aren’t the only celebrities benefiting from Tracy’s expertise. Tracy also helped Jennifer Lopez sculpt her famous booty.

“Her workouts have to give her the ability to have endurance for the show,” explained Anderson. “We don’t want to change her sexy body and wanted to design a workout to keep her sexy butt toned.”
