Katie Holmes: I’m Concentrating on Acting and Motherhood

Katie Holmes Elle UK

Posing for the April 2014 issue of Elle UK, Katie Holmes opens up about focusing on her acting career and being a mom to her 7-year-old daughter Suri Cruise.

The Dawson’s Creek actress admits she ended her fashion label Holmes & Yang, which she started with her longtime stylist and friend Jeanne Yang to concentrate on motherhood and her acting career. 

“I loved every minute of my time working on Holmes & Yang. I remain passionate about the design aesthetic we created, and am so happy with what Jeanne and I accomplished. However I am now concentrating on acting and motherhood, which did not leave the label the time and attention it deserved. I’m really thrilled that the final showcase for Holmes & Yang is in ELLE – I had a blast at my shoot for the magazine. It is fantastic to feel like it’s ending on a high.” 

News broke this week that Holmes will be returning to TV in the near future.

The 35-year-old has been cast in a new, currently untitled ABC pilot from Behind the Candelabra writer Richard LaGravenese

Described as a “high society drama” by Entertainment Weekly, the show will feature Holmes in the role of Ann, “a well-bred and educated woman who runs a philanthropic foundation with her husband.” Another Upper East Side couple, Philip and Margot, make a bet to destroy Ann’s perfect marriage.

The ex-wife of Tom Cruise is also set to star in the highly-anticipated film adaptation of The Giver.
