Katie Holmes on Starting Over in Life: 'You've Got to Keep Going'

Katie Holmes on Starting Over in Life: 'You've Got to Keep Going'

Katie Holmes goes bare-faced for the cover of More magazine’s February 2016 issue, on newsstands January 26.

Here’s what the 37-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On dating: “That’s not something I want to answer … [I don’t] have a five or 10-year plan. I feel like I’m still a teenager in a lot of ways. I do a lot of things I did then. I paint, I color. I cook sometimes. I still feel like a girl. I don’t quite feel like a woman, maybe because I’m the baby of my family. I’ll probably be 90 and feel like, ‘Not a woman yet!’ Ha!”

On new challenges: “I feel more creative. I feel ready … When I was a young actor, things happened quickly. My second job was Dawson’s Creek, and suddenly I was known. I was 18 years old; I had no life experience. I felt, ‘I don’t have anything to bring. I don’t know what it’s like to be, say, really angry. I’m doing the best I can.’ But with age I’ve gained confidence. I understand the kind of stories I want to tell. I have more experience in business. I feel more certain.”

On starting over after her divorce from Tom Cruise: “You’ve got to keep going. In every part of your life. Focus on the positive. Stay creative. Go to things that interest you. Do work that’s fulfilling. Challenge yourself. What’s amazing about the human spirit, there are so many people doing inspiring things. If you focus on that, it makes your life richer.”
