Did Katie Holmes hint at divorcing Tom Cruise in Elle Magazein six weeks before she filed?

Six weeks before Katie Holmes filed for divorce from husband Tom Cruise, she sat down with Elle Magazing for a photo shoot and cover story. In the article Katie hinted that she was entering a “new phase” of her life. Was she hinting at her divorce before anyone (including Tom) knew anything about it?

Talking about being in her 30s, Katie is quoted as saying: ‘I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier. I think in my 20s, 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.’

It is worth noting that Katie seductively flashes her sheer black bra in an unbuttoned top – as she appears to be rebelling against reports that Tom controlled even her wardrobe choices.

Also in the interview, which took place in mid-May and appears in the magazine on sale on July 17th, Katie appeared to respond negatively to a question about being ‘Mrs Tom Cruise’.

The 33-year-old star said: ‘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.’

And a source present at the interview told the New York Post that Katie didn’t appear to be happy in her relationship with Tom at the time.

The source said: ‘Katie didn’t speak about Tom in a lovey-dovey way at all. She deflected the Tom questions and brought them around to herself.’

Katie’s interview with Elle took place six weeks before she filed for divorce from Tom on June 29th.

While the pair are now gearing up for a big divorce battle, as well as what is expected to be a bitter fight over custody of their six-year-old daughter Suri, Katie yesterday reassured fans that she is coping following the split.

Approached as she stocked up on food at Whole Foods in Manhattan, Katie told a New York Daily News reporter: ‘I’m alright. Thank you.’

I think Elle is grabbing at straws here, possibly trying to publicize on the fact that they have Katie Holmes as their cover girl – same time as the actress announces she’s divorcing her husband. Lucky timing on their part!

Rihanna on seeing Chris Brown: “I’ll do what I want to do”

Rihanna covers the latest issue of Elle Magazine, and in the interview she gives a very candid look into her life, including her relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

There have been rampant rumors that the couple have rekindled their romance, and even though the public has reacted negatively to the news, the singer insists she’ll “do what I want”.

In reaction to how people felt about her reuniting with Brown after he attacked her:

“I respect what other people have to say. The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it. People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that’s all right. I don’t hate them for it. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”

On her 2009 assault by Chris Brown:

The singer admitted it was “the hardest time of my life. I was angry, sad, confused, torn. I was still in love. And I needed to talk about it.”

She claims recording the Rated R album in 2009 was like therapy:

“That was the only way I could get peace, because it was in my head, and I couldn’t leave it there.”

She believes her attack made her a stronger person:

“It gave me guns. I was like, ‘Well, f***.’ They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it. I wanted people to know who I am. Whatever they take that to be, good or bad, I just want them to know the truth. It’s like, one less skeleton in the closet, one less burden, one less secret; now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”

Sources close to Rihanna fear she’s rebelling:

A source told the New York Post, ‘Her management banned her from reuniting with Chris, but she said she’ll do whatever the hell she wants to’.

Apparently the You Da One performer’s camp fear that she will go on to record an album with Brown just to spite Roc Nation who have desperately tried to stop the two from meeting.

The source continued, ‘Rihanna is rebelling. She says they have been working her too hard and she wants some time to herself.
‘They fear she’ll secretly record an album with Brown, just to defy them.’

Although Rihanna has said she is ‘single and happy’, some of her recent posts on Twitter would suggest differently.

On March 31, she tweeted: ‘If u don’t want me, someone else will… if I’m not good enough!’

She then followed that post with another tweet which could possibly spell out her feelings for Brown.

The tweet read: ‘I’m makin’ u wait….I need to know if ya worthy’.

Will.i.am subscribes to the baby wipe theory.

Will.i.am sat down with Elle Magazine in a very revealing interview. He talks about everything from sex – to dating – to never meeting his father. In an excerpt from the interview, he talks about how his biggest pet peeves in women are 1) women who have condoms at their house, 2) women who don’t dry their sinks when they’re done using them and 3) women who don’t clean themselves with baby wipes. If you know a woman who meets this criteria – she may be in luck!

On Will’s sex life:

To me, sex isn’t like an extracurricular activity that you do because you’re [feeling amorous]. Because I was raised around girls, I think I’ve adopted that perspective on sex. When you’re with somebody and you love them, then you’re going to do it and you’re going to do it a lot. On tour, the band started calling me G. S., for the Good Samaritan.

On his father, whom he’s never met:

I asked my mother about it once, and she said, “Willie, can I ask you a question? Are you happy with your perspective on the world? Are you proud that you’re tenacious and driven? Are you happy how me and your uncles have raised you?” I was like, “Yeah.” She said, “Then you shouldn’t feel like you’re missing anything. I am your daddy. I protected you, and the proof is your happiness with who you are right now.”

This part of the interview is just too good to miss any of it, so here you go:

ELLE: If you walked into a woman’s house, what one item would convince you that you weren’t compatible?

W: If she had condoms in her house, that would just f*ckin’ throw me off. That’s just tacky.

ELLE: Well, okay, I could see if she had a candy bowl full of them on the coffee table. But if she’s got a few in a drawer, wouldn’t that simply suggest she’s health-conscious?

W: I just think, like, if you’re into someone and you guys get to that level, then that’s something you should converse about together and say, “Hey, maybe we should get some.” Another pet peeve is wet sinks.

ELLE: Wet sinks?

W: Yeah, like a wet sink. You don’t wipe the sink after you use it? Dry it off! And if she’s got only dry toilet paper and no baby wipes next to the toilet. You ain’t got no baby wipes?

ELLE: I’ve heard about this particular deal breaker before. Why is that a big deal to you?

W: Here’s proof on why people should have baby wipes. Get some chocolate, wipe it on a wooden floor, and then try to get it up with some dry towels. You’re going to get chocolate in the cracks. That’s why you gotta get them baby wipes.

I was with Will until the wet sink thing. Wet sinks? Really? That’s a deal breaker?

And I get the baby wipe thing… I mean it couldn’t hurt. But he takes it one step further with his whole chocolate on the floor scenario. GROSS.

Emma Roberts in the April issue of Elle Magazine!

With a thriller at the multiplex and college on the horizon (maybe), Emma Roberts – all grown up in rock ‘n’ roll studs – is en route to taking over the family business. She comes from good stock – dad is actor Eric Roberts, aunt is Oscar-winner Julia Roberts.

Emma Roberts will soon be seen in ‘Scream 4′. The actress opens up about her career, college and her role models in the April issue of Elle Magazine!

On being brought to movie sets when she was younger:

“I was always running around to the makeup trailer and the wardrobe trailer, trying on clothes, and letting people do my hair…I loved it”

On her role models:

Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson have made names for themselves regardless of the fact that their parents were famous…I’d like to have a career like that too.”

On her appearance in this month’s Scream 4:

“There were times when we were filming in a weird house at 2 A.M. and I’d get really spooked out…but what I’ve always loved about the Scream films is that they’ll have you terrified one moment and laughing the next.”

On Wes Anderson:

“I’m a huge Wes Anderson fan; I would faint if I met him, let alone got to work with him.”

On the ability to play different roles:

“I can still play a high school student if I want, or I can play older. I don’t have to limit myself right now, so why should I?”
