Katie Holmes

Was Katie Holmes been planning to leave Tom Cruise for months?

That’s the question everyone’s asking after details of an interview 33-year-old Holmes did with Elle magazine (about six weeks before the divorce announcement) emerged.

The interview hints to a “new phase” in Holmes’ life and career.

In response to a question about being “Mrs Cruise,” Katie said: “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.”

On being in her 30s, she said: “I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier. I think in my twenties, it’s like you’re trying too hard to figure everything out, I’m starting to come into my own.”

“It’s like a new phase,” she said.
