Katie Holmes Details 'Intense' Attention After Tom Cruise Split

Katie Holmes Details 'Intense' Attention After Tom Cruise Split

Katie Holmes was asked about moving to New York City back in 2012 right after divorcing her ex Tom Cruise.

“When you finally moved [to NYC] in 2012 [after divorcing Cruise], there was, of course, a huge amount of attention on you,” InStyle asked Katie for their cover story.

“That time was intense. It was a lot of attention, and I had a little child on top of it. We had some funny moments out and about in public. So many people I didn’t know became my friends and helped us out, and that’s what I love about the city,” Katie explained. “There was one incredible moment when I think I actually cried. Suri was 6 or 7, and she was spending the night at a friend’s house while I was seeing the ballet at Lincoln Center. At 10 o’clock I got a call: “Mommy, can you come get me?” I got a cab and went down to Battery Park to pick her up. She was exhausted. She fell asleep on the way home, and when we pulled up to our building, the cab driver opened the door and helped me not wake her. He helped carry her to the building. He was so kind.”

Katie also spoke about Suri, who is now 13 years old, in the interview, saying, “I love her so much. My biggest goal has always been to nurture her into her individuality. To make sure she is 100 percent herself and strong, confident, and able. And to know it. She came out very strong — she’s always been a strong personality. She’ll pick an activity and work her butt off until she’s really good at it. Then she’s like, ‘OK, I’m going to try the next thing.’ She’s very focused and a hard worker. I have to say, I did recently see some fan site [about her] posted when she was a baby, and it was very intense. We were followed a lot when she was little. I just wanted her outside, so I would walk her around to find parks at, like, 6 in the morning when nobody would see us. But there’s one video where I’m holding her — she was 2 at the time — and she starts waving at the cameras. She’s pretty special.”

A former Scientologist reportedly spoke out a few months ago that Tom is not allowed to contact Suri.
