It’s been a couple of months since news broke that Katie Holmes filed for divorce from husband Tom Cruise, and while we’ve seen her out and about on the regular, we haven’t really heard a peep from her.
That’s all about to change, though, as she’s finally given her first post-divorce interview.
Katie talked with Women’s Wear Daily about going through a public divorce and dealing with the aftermath of it.
She told the magazine:
“There are a lot of people with much bigger problems and who are less fortunate.”
“I try to keep it all in perspective,” adding that she “has a lot of feelings about the press.”
She also told the mag that she is keeping her daughter Suri’s new school under wraps for now to protect her:
“They’ll find out in due time.”
In order to deal with the divorce and being newly single, she’s been keeping busy and doing new things without “being afraid to fail.”
She said of trying new things:
“Who cares? At least you tried. It’s usually the people who haven’t tried who are the naysayers.”
On top of it all, Katie might have also found romance with a new man, as she’s been spotted out with Jeremy Strong, her co-star in her new movie “Romantics.”
The two have been seen spending time together, going to an off-Broadway play, which was written by the man who recruited them to star in one of his plays last month.
Director Jenny Gersten told Celebuzz:
“Jeremy and I were talking about casting and he suggested her so I said ‘email her!’ and he did, and sent the script, she read it and agreed to do it.”
It sounds like both Katie’s professional and personal life are taking off. Work it, girl.
