Just days before she filed for divorce against Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes hinted that their relationship was under strain in a pre-divorce interview.
The 33-year-old star was interviewed for the September issue of C magazine just one day before the big announcement that she was divorcing Cruise after five years of marriage.
Senior editor at the magazine Kelsey McKinnon, who met with Holmes for the interview, says the signs of strain were there.
“Going back over the tapes, there were signs: Holmes was certainly very aware of herself, laying a couple cards on the table but never showing her whole hand,” McKinnon wrote via the Women's Wear Daily website.
“Most noticeably, the one name decisively absent from her lexicon: Tom Cruise. She never actually refers to him by name over pages and pages of transcription.”
Holmes also seemed to get frustrated when asked about her daughter Suri and whether the six-year-old had brought the pair closer together.
“I don’t know. I mean…I don’t know,” Holmes said. “People have been having babies a long time.”
Since her divorce Katie has been noticeably happier and is now focusing on her own career. She has been cast in a Broadway play and is highly involved in her Holmes & Yang fashion brand.
