Katie Holmes had no new professional projects to promote, but she's featured on the August cover of Elle magazine, giving a very revealing interview that hinted at her impending divorce (the chat took place roughly six weeks ago, according to People.com).
One of the big components of her "next phase" is getting people to stop seeing Katie as Mrs. Tom Cruise. "Things are not handed to anyone. If anything, you work a little bit harder when you're in such visible circumstances."
Katie, who was 26 when she began dating Tom, also says that her perspective on life has changed a lot since becoming a mother and entering her 30s. "I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier," she says. "I'm starting to come into my own. It's like a new phase."
Katie's interview with Elle Magazine hits newsstands on July 17.
