The Giver actress Katie Holmes opens up about her previous relationship with Tom Cruise, admitting she does not blame her ex-husband for her career ‘dry spell.’
Although the actress has most recently appeared in The Giver, it is no secret Holmes disappeared from the entertainment industry during her 5-year marriage to the Top Gun actor.
However, the former Dawson’s Creek star, who has revealed she doesn’t like to look back on her relationship with Cruise, admitted she is now in a different place with her career and has “gotten more comfortable with acting over time.”
“The more projects you do, the older you get, the more life experience you get, you start to understand storytelling better," Holmes told DuJour. "So you're a little bit more confident going in. You're not afraid of getting fired: You just want to contribute."
When Holmes was asked if Cruise had anything to do with her dry spell, she admitted she “could never get out of [her] head” and was always afraid of getting fired, but assured fans that her former husband had nothing to do with her break from the industry.
"It's the life of an actor," she added. "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."
Holmes most recently made a comeback with The Giver and will be releasing Mania Days and Woman in Gold within the next year.
