Katie Holmes has been through a lot. From ‘Dawson’s Creek’ to her marriage Tom Cruise, her life has had its ups and down. In a new interview, Katie took a look back on everything, including her marriage to the ‘Mission: Impossible’ star and says she has ‘no regrets.’
Katie Holmes, 36, has endured a lot. She has gone from playing Joey Potter on Dawson’s Creek to being the Mrs. Tom Cruise, 53, to filing for divorce from him. But, despite all the heartache and hardships that Katie has faced, she has kept a positive attitude about her life.
“I don’t regret anything that I’ve done,” Katie tells Ocean Drive in its December issue. This “anything” would also include her high profile relationship with Tom, and the fall-out following their 2012 divorce. “I’ve learned from everything,” Katie adds, “and everything sort of leads you to the next place. I just keep going.”
Katie has kept going, both as an actress and as a mom. She has been raising her nine-year-old daughter by herself, as Suri Cruise reportedly hasn’t seen her dad in over 800 days (that’s over two years!) Considering that Tom is reportedly furious that Katie apologized to former-Scientologist Leah Remini following her shocking 20/20 interview, there might not be a happy reunion between father and daughter.
While Tom is a reportedly deadbeat dad, Katie wouldn’t trade being a mom for anything in the world. “[It] changes you completely in such amazing ways,” Katie said. “And I think that you become who you were meant to be. Being a parent also is a source of inspiration to just work really hard. You want to set an example and, you know, [your kids] are what drives you.”
Despite her tumultuous relationship with Tom and having an “abnormal” job , Katie swears she’s just a regular woman. “I have a very normal life, and I happen to work in an industry that is abnormal. Daily life, I take a train and cab; it’s just about getting here to there, and I don’t care how to I do it. I have to get there.”
Where’s she going next is up – as Katie is set to make her directorial debut in All We Had. She’ll also reprise her role as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the upcoming miniseries, The Kennedys — After Camelot. She’ll even direct an episode! “I don’t shy away from risks,” Katie adds in the interview. “I don’t even think of it as a risk. I think of it as something exciting and new.”
What do you think about Katie not having any “regrets” about her life or anything she’s done, HollywoodLifers?
