Katie Holmes Savors Singlehood, Calls Love for Daughter Suri 'Overwhelming'

Posted on

Goodbye Mrs. Tom Cruise, hello single-and-loving-it Katie Holmes.

The 35-year-old actress tells Glamour she’s not dating right now, but that’s just fine. She already has a great love in her life: 8-year-old daughter Suri.

“I didn’t know how much love I had in me. It’s overwhelming,” she tells fashion pal Zac Posen, who interviewed her for the magazine’s August cover story. “Every day I discover more about this spectacular human being I get to be the mother of.”

And when Posen dares to ask about her relationship status, Holmes, who divorced Cruise in 2012, is blunt: “I am really focused on motherhood and work right now.”

Work currently includes a role in the highly anticipated film version of The Giver – alongside Meryl Streep – which hits theaters Aug. 15.

But when the cameras aren’t rolling, Holmes sounds like a typical doting mother who indulges her daughter’s movie tastes – and sweet tooth.

“I’ve seen Frozen a lot,” she admits, while also sharing what she cooks for the fashion-forward New York City elementary-schooler.

“Plain pasta with butter is a hit. Chocolate-chip pancakes are a hit – together with chocolate-chip cookies. I do a homemade chicken finger. That’s a hit,” she says.

Also a hit? Her loving Ohio family, whom she credits with keeping her grounded.

“[My] family has been so crucial to my outlook on life,” she says. “I started acting at 17 and had success at an early age, where all of a sudden people knew who I was. But my parents always treated me the exact same way at home and reminded me of gratitude. And that’s been a grounding force.”
