The actress, 35, who stars as a mother in the summer sci-fi film, The Giver, said she pulls from her own tight-knit background growing up in Ohio when it comes to raising her 8-year-old with ex-husband Tom Cruise.
“I think, of course, you try your best,” Katie said of motherhood. “I try very hard because I am very grateful for my upbringing and my parents and siblings. I try to do what they did for me for my little one.”
“The most important thing for me is letting her know how proud I am and that her accomplishments mean everything,” she added. “Whatever I do is whatever. It’s really just about her and that’s what I think is most important.”
As for how she sees her life right now, Katie shared: “I’m an artist so I’m a risk-taker. I love adventures and new things.”
She added: “I never really look back. I just approach life one day at a time. I’m really excited about where I am right now, this movie … I’ve had some really wonderful creative experiences. I am just excited about the future.”
