Katie Holmes Talks Homeschooling Suri, 'Incredible Human Being' Tom Cruise
Katie Holmes covers New York magazine, and in the interview she talks about her new projects (playing Jackie Kennedy in a History Channel miniseries, designing a clothing line), Suri's fashion sense and her marriage to Tom Cruise.
Here is how she and Tom balance their schedules, including having Suri homeschooled, which is popular among Scientologists.
We have quite a schedule, you know? We don't say, "When I'm working, you don't work," or anything like that. Last year he was shooting Knight and Day and I was shooting The Romantics, and we'd just fly to see each other after we wrapped. And we homeschool Suri--she has a teacher who is with her every day. We like the one-on-one education. I'm happy that my daughter is strong-willed and determined. You really have to go with what the child is wanting.
When asked whether she would consider working with Tom, Katie replied:
Well, we do collaborate on everything at home. But I mean, he's Tom Cruise! His body of work is incredible. Every movie he's done has done really well. I look back, and everything's a classic. I definitely come home and say to him, "So, imagine a scene ... how would you play it?" And he's helpful and sweet and gracious. He's quite an incredible human being.
She also talked about how she deals with speculation about her marriage: "smile and nod." Read the whole interview here.
