Katie Holmes Tells Elle ‘I Feel Sexier’ [PHOTOS]

Katie & Tom
A look back at TomKat through the years.
Katie Holmes, 33, gave an interview to Elle magazine mid-May, just six weeks before she went public with her decision to split with Tom Cruise – and in it, she seems to hint at the impending divorce.

“I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier. I think in my 20s, it’s like you’re trying too hard to figure everything out,” she said in the magazine’s August issue of enjoying her 30s. “I’m starting to come into my own. It’s like a new phase. He has been Tom Cruise for 30 years. I know who I am, and where I am, and where I want to go, so I want to focus on that.”

Holmes, seen here this morning, after shopping at Whole Foods, adds that though her main priority is the couple’s daughter, Suri, 6, she’s looking forward to more professional opportunities, even if there are some challenges along the way.

“Things are not handed to anyone,” she says. “If anything, you work a little bit harder when you’re in such visible circumstances.”
