Katie Holmes on Life After Tom Cruise Split: 'I Never Really Look Back'

Katie Holmes on Life After Tom Cruise Split: 'I Never Really Look Back'

Katie Holmes makes an appearance on the Today show (her first time in about 13 years!) on Wednesday morning (August 6) in New York City.

The 35-year-old actress talked raising her young daughter Suri.

“I think, of course, you try your best,” The Giver actress said on the show. “I try very hard because I am very grateful for my upbringing and my parents and siblings. I try to do what they did for me for my little one. The most important thing for me is letting her know how proud I am and that her accomplishments mean everything. Whatever I do is whatever. It’s really just about her and that’s what I think is most important.”

She also discussed looking forward to the future and not focusing on events of the past like her split from Tom Cruise.

“I never really look back. I just approach life one day at a time. I’m excited about where I am right now, this movie…I’ve had some really wonderful creative experiences. I am just excited about the future,” Katie said.

Later in the day, Katie made a visit to SiriusXM studios.

    Of course Says:

    The headlines have to be about her daughter or her ex . On her own she would have been long forgotten.
    She knows full well this will make headlines.
    Her acting? not so much.

    She sounds so dull and stupid in that interview.

    I still would like to congratulate her from saving Suri from Scientology and also to congratulate her on The Great Escape.

    And I would like to congratulate you for being an idiot who lives and breathes what the tabloids feed you. Good luck.

    @Of course: I kind of agree, if it weren’t for her marriage to Tom Cruise she would be nothing but at most a B movie actress and never make any headlines.

    @Leila: Haha!

    Minna Says:

    @Of course: She wasn’t exactly trying to make headlines. She was asked a question and did her best to avoid saying anything with her “I don’t look back” bulls***. He’s the father of her child, it’s not like she can just forget him and avoid all contact.

    PennyLayne Says:

    HAHA Did she really refer to herself as an “artist”????? OMG. New level of delusion for Holmes.
    You’re a tv actress hon. And a bad movie actress when you actually get parts.

    I dare anyone to google Katie Holmes herpes and look at the images.
    Warning: Don’t eat first.

    @LILOU: Even reading about it made me think “God no”. OITNB is one of my new favorite shows. She would ruin it;

    sweetness Says:

    She’s been split from Cruise how long..and still needs to bring his name up? Just like Nicole Kidman…they constantly need to mention his name in interviews, NK is married and has kids yet still, to create buzz she yaks about Tom…If they were so interesting on their own they wouldn’t need to mention him.

    Cate Says:

    This dullard. She can’t act, has zero charisma and can’t even dress well. The only thing keeping her slightly relevant are her ex-husband and daughter.

    TO Sweeness Says:

    Even if she was asked she can decline to answer. She can do what a lot of celebs do and say personal life is off limits but I think she knows and secretly wants to be asked because that is what gives her the middle aged house wives sympathy. Her handlers know what makes the papers. Pity though she can keep trying it but it won’t change the fact that she can’t act her way out of a paper bag.

    Never look back, Katie.
    What you did was horrible. Enter into a marriage contract, having a child to fulfill a contractual clause …….
    In the end, everything went wrong. Only left Suri and support to children. Sad.

    Annie,
      You read the National Equire on the secret gay life of Tom Cruise? New lawsuit coming. I hope Tom wins. Ridiculous tabloids that does not leave him alone.

    As Matt mentioned they were at a party last week and I would not be surprised if Harvey W told Matt “why don’t you let Katie appear on the Today show to promote The Giver.” Interesting that Matt brought up “her heel getting stuck in the wood planks and she could have fallen into the pool but he didn’t rush over to help her.” What a dummy. He shot himself in the foot. Katie interviews the way she always has, kind of all over the place, not really completing a sentence. And she’s been interviewed many times. She can’t say she only looks to the future and not looks back, every month she is reminded that Cruise was in her life when she receives her monthly child support check. That marriage has made it possible for her to live at a $12,500 a month apartment and not feel the pressure of getting work right away. Good luck to her with this movie.

    I like the way they applied her makeup in the picture where she’s wearing the polked doted blouse. Bu I don’t like the jeans with that blouse If she combe her hair and put make up on like that more regularly she would not get such a bad rap when she was out and about walking around. But I suspect the real Katie is not very disciplined about wearing any kind of makeup and is a jeans girl, casually dressed gal.

    I don’t get it, she looks so tired and sad all the time, I don’t understand all the hype about Katie Holmes!

    @19 Says:

    the only “hype” is that she is the ex tom cruise and suri’s mom.

    Amelia Says:

    She is so freaking immature. She is almost 36 and her dream is to play Wonder Woman??
    Really Katie??

    @Just a comment:
    Yep. Why Matt I wonder. Katie was posing with him along side Harvey last week or so. Matt who people associate with the Cruise rant years ago and Harvey who is an enemy of his. Katie plays her ignorant fans like a fiddle. She isn’t the sweet midwest girl at all. She is and always was a manipulator.

    why does she look miserable!

    h8e Says:

    So sad seeing all of you bringing Katie down. Of course she knows she’s known for being Tom Cruises arm candy, and I’m sure she regrets being brainwashed by a controlling nome. She’s working hard to get back out there she’s a strong single mom and if you can’t see what scientology has done and is doing to her career then you are idiots.

    Please explain Says:

    #24 Please explain what Scientology has done and is doing to her career.
    That sounds like you are making excuses for her.
    How are they holding her back? Does she go for parts and the church tells someone not to hire her?
    She has a contact with someone like Harvey Weinstein who owns a studio and is giving her bit parts.
    Scientology doesn’t have a strong hold in Hollywood anymore (or maybe never really did).
    If you are going to make excuses for her bad acting and lack of good roles please be specific how someone or something is holding her back.
