Katie Holmes - Did Katie Holmes Hint At Divorce During Interview?
Soon after Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise announced their plans to divorce last Friday (June 29, 2012), fans began delving into recent photographs of the pair for tell-tale signs of their split. However, it appears that an interview given by Holmes to US Elle magazine six weeks ago could have contained a clue that all was not quite right in their relationship.
Deflecting questions about her A-list husband, the actress told the interviewer, "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". Some media outlets have suggested Holmes is already looking more positive - having been spotted out and about in New York in recent days - and she added in the interview, "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". The actress' career has ground to a halt in recent years, while Cruise had maintained his strong Hollywood stock - most recently with 'Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol'.
Early reports have pointed towards Cruise's close affiliation with Scientology as a reason for the split. News Corp boss Rupert Murdoch suggested on Twitter that the actor is "second or third" in the overall hierarchy of the religion.
