I don’t really know what Katie Holmes ever feared in life, but whatever it was, it’s gone. She’s got no more fears! She’s ready to take on the world and whatever comes with it!
“I don’t have any fear now, I don’t have a lot of rules for myself, and I don’t take myself that seriously,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s cover story.
And when it comes to her career, “I feel ready for new challenges,” she says.
Also, she’s tired of talking about Tom Cruise and will not let her divorce from that crazy Scientologist define her for the rest of her life.
“I don’t want that moment in my life to define me, to be who I am,” she says of her post-split persona. “I don’t want that to be what I’m known as. I was an actor before, an actor during and an actor now.”
Well, you were never a very good actor, which is, I suppose, why people paid more attention to the whole relationship aspect, but you know. I don’t mind Katie Holmes – she’s about as exciting about watching paint dry, but there’s nothing wrong with her, per se. It’s good to hear she’s doing well, I suppose?
