It's been one heck of a week for Katie Holmes, the soon-to-be-ex-wife of Tom Cruise. The actress filed for divorce from the Top Gun actor on 29 June and since then her every move has been followed by the paps.
The press has gone into a frenzy, reporting rumours and possible reasons their marriage might have come to an end, with some saying it's Tom's connection with the Church of Scientology that pushed Katie over the edge, and others claming she outgrew him and wanted to move on.
However, in a new interview with Elle magazine USA (conducted six weeks before news of the split), Katie hinted at a separation.
"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 suggestively.
"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."
