On Tom Cruise:
"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 whether being Mrs. Tom Cruise helped her in the industry:
"Things are not handed to anyone. If anything, you work a little bit harder when you're in such visible circumstances."
On being in her 30s:
"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."
Photographer Carter Smith on Katie:
"Katie didn't speak about Tom in a lovey-dovey way at all. She deflected the Tom questions and brought them around to herself."
