Elle isn’t the only magazine that got incredibly lucky with a Katie Holmes cover hitting newsstands just after her big divorce announcement. C Magazine, a California lifestyle glossy, also tapped the actress for their September issue.
The cover shoot took place exactly one week before Holmes said that she would be leaving her then-husband Tom Cruise, and the accompanying interview happened the day before the announcement was made. C Senior Editor Kelsey McKinnon, who interviewed Holmes for the story, told WWD:
“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. 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.”
One of the clearest signs was Holmes’ response to McKinnon’s asking her whether or not Suri had brought the couple closer together:
“I don’t know. I mean…I don’t know. People have been having babies a long time.”
With her marriage now officially over, Holmes has been focusing on acting and her clothing line, Holmes & Yang, which will show this September at New York’s Bowery Hotel. Most recently, she was cast in a Broadway play. Keep it up, girl!
