Katie Holmes spoke with Elle magazine just six weeks before filing for divorce from Tom Cruise, and in the interview, she could have shown some signs that there was trouble in paradise.
“He has been Tom Cruise for 30 years," she told the magazine about her then-husband. "I know who I am and where I am and where I want to go, so I want to focus on that."
Holmes went on to say that she didn’t want to use his star power to land higher-profiles roles.
“Things are not handed to anyone," she said, People reports. "If anything, you work a little bit harder when you’re in such visible circumstances."
Holmes, now 33, went on to say she feels “sexier” in her 30s.
"It's like you’re trying too hard to figure everything out” in your 20s. "I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier," she explained. "I'm starting to come into my own. It's like a new phase."
New phase, indeed. Holmes has since filed for divorce from Cruise and the two will likely embark upon a custody war for their daughter, Suri, 6.
