No stranger to the limelight, Katie Holmes strikes a flirty pose on the August 2014 cover of Glamour magazine.
In her interview (conducted by guy pal/uber-designer Zac Posen), the “Dawson’s Creek” darling discusses the ups and downs of being a working mom.
On working with Meryl Streep on The Giver:
“Being in a movie with Meryl Streep was a huge dream come true. When the cameras rolled, she was spot-on and such a pro. It was just a thrill to walk on set with her.”
On whether she is dating:
“I am really focused on motherhood and work right now.”
On how being a mother has changed her life:
“I’ve seen Frozen a lot. But the biggest change? I think you don’t know—I didn’t know how much love I had in me. It’s overwhelming. Every day I discover more about this spectacular human being I get to be the mother of.”
On her personal style:
“I do like to buy my own clothes because I like to support designers. I know the work that goes into it. I have a tightly edited closet. I like what I like. And I repeat a lot. But I’m always comfortable in jeans—I feel like I can really do anything when I’m in them.”
On her family:
“[M]y family has been so crucial to my outlook on life. I started acting at 17 and had success at an early age, where all of a sudden people knew who I was. But my parents always treated me the exact same way at home and reminded me of gratitude. And that’s been a grounding force.”
