Katie Holmes opens up about her new life in People’s cover story. Echoing her comments to Gossip Cop last month, when she said, “I have always been a huge risk-taker,” the actress tells People, “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 also now says that professionally she’s “ready for new challenges.”

Holmes, who can next be seen as a vigilante teacher in the upcoming comedy Miss Meadows, will reprise her role, as Gossip Cop previously reported, as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the upcoming miniseries “The Kennedys — After Camelot.” She is also slated to make her directing debut of the Annie Weatherwax novel, “All We Had,” which she recently told Gossip Cop appealed to her because “I saw potential for creating a mother-daughter relationship very unique in its dialogue and honesty that we haven’t seen in a while on screen.”

But probably what most people are interested in hearing about Holmes is her 2012 divorce from Tom Cruise, which she discusses in the magazine’s cover story. The actress acknowledges there’s a public appetite for it, but honestly reveals, “I don’t want that moment in my life to define me, to be who I am.” Holmes quite rightfully points out, “I don’t want that to be what I’m known as. I was an actor before, an actor during and an actor now.”

Holmes is also known for being a mom to now 8-year-old daughter Suri. She says her daughter “means everything to me,” adding, “I’m learning every day, and I have been since the minute I became a mom.” Among the things she’s learned is patience for dealing with a young child. “Between tickle fights and glitter art, I try to throw in some manners along the way,” says Holmes. Regardless, Suri is her number one priority. Holmes told Gossip Cop last month, “I love my child more than anything in the entire world. It’s pretty simple.”

Holmes also touches on falling in love again in the People article. Sadly, the media makes it even harder on her. As Gossip Cop reported last month, Holmes has a very good attitude about it. She told us, “A lot of the people that they link me to I’ve never even met.”
