She’s lying to us all. We know, she knows. I guess she just doesn’t want to have scientologists coming to her door. KatE’s on the cover of DuJour magazine, discussing her career, her parenting, promoting the trainwreck that is ‘The Giver’.
“Even early on, when I was a young actor and all of a sudden people knew who I was, my dad told me, ‘Don’t let that change how you live your life.’ I’ve always sort of approached it that way. You have to continue to do the things you want to do and not let outside forces dictate,” Holmes, 35, told the mag.
“I think I’ve gotten more comfortable with acting over time. Early on, I could never get out of my head. I’d be thinking, ‘I have to get the job.’ And even when I had the job, I was afraid that I was going to get fired, or I just had the mentality of, ‘I need to be good enough,'” she added. “But the more projects you do, the older you get, the more life experience you get, you start to understand storytelling better. So you’re a little bit more confident going in. You’re not afraid of getting fired: You just want to contribute.”
It’s the life of an actor. We don’t really have a lot of choice in the matter. You have dry spells, and then you have times when there is a lot of opportunity,” the actress, who only completed a handful of projects during the couple’s relationship, noted. In fact, she hopes to direct and produce more but admits she “could rehearse for years.”
“I totally admire women who go back to work six weeks after giving birth but when she was little, I was not ready,” she explained to Dujour. “I was a very nervous mother—like, sleeping next to her crib—and I was in that mode for a long time.”
She seems a lot less robotic now, years after leaving the cult and getting away from Cruise. Best decision she ever made. She’s filming a new movie right now about a substitute teacher who is a vigilante for children on the side. Looks promising.
