Katie Holmes is pretty in red on the cover of Marie Claire’s November 2011 issue. Inside the magazine, the 32-year-old actress talks about her daughter Suri, her family, but also about her career and future plans. Photographed by Tesh and styled by Alison Edmond.
Katie on her future plans: “I feel ready… for the next chapter of my life. I’m excited to begin a new phase: roles I might have been afraid to play before, places I want to travel to with my daughter. I’d like to build the design business. But not too fast.”
Katie on simplifying her life: “I’m thinking about getting rid of [my mobile phone]. Wouldn’t it be great to have an old-fashioned phone sheet? Go to your office, make your calls, and then continue with your day?”
On Suri having famous parents: “Being around this business, my daughter is exposed to people with incredible talent, people who are the best at what they do. People I only dreamed of getting to work with as a little girl.”
On being a working mother: Katie confessed that her daughter accompanies her at different work events. Katie said that she always carries in her bag paper and markers. “My daughter was with me the other day at a work event and it was a long day. I took out some paper and markers that I had in my bag, and someone said to me, ‘Oh, that is so cute,’ and I looked at her and thought, No, this is not cute. This is what all mothers have to do,” Katie noted.
