How Katie Holmes keeps perspective

The scrutiny has been intense for Katie Holmes this summer, and the media attention's only going to increase as she prepares for her first presentation at New York Fashion Week with her clothing line, Holmes & Yang.

And while it would probably be understandable if she were frustrated by the severe invasion of privacy fame brings, Holmes tells Women's Wear Daily that really, it's not that bad.

"I have a lot of feelings about the press," said the 33-year-old actress/designer, who's been closely watched since her split from ex-husband Tom Cruise in June.

"There are a lot of people with much bigger problems and who are less fortunate," she continued. "I try to keep it all in perspective."

We're sure her new deal as the face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics - the first ever celebrity to rep the line - helps at least a little  bit.

Holmes and Brown were introduced by a mutual friend and soon bonded over their down-to-earth sensibilities and similar approaches to life and beauty.

"We weren't looking for a celebrity, just a cool, amazing woman who would fit with our brand," Brown told WWD of her new collaboration with Holmes. Of course, there's also the fact that "she's just ridiculously beautiful."

Holmes' Bobbi Brown campaign is scheduled to launch in Spring 2013, and in the meantime the actress is trying to test out as many different avenues as possible without "being afraid to fail," she said.

"Who cares? At least you tried," she continued. "It's usually the people who  haven't tried who are the naysayers."

    Why are people so mean... I guess every one has an opinion, like they have belly buttons. She did what she felt right to do. That's it..........

    What a difference – Katie has lived with the most intense of media scrutiny, and has her act together enough to dismiss the intrusions as not that bad. In other words, she's learned to live with the excessive publicity that comes with being a celebrity these days, and it's not really affecting her life that much. (At least that's my take on her comments.) Contrast that with petulant Kristen Stewart, who can't be bothered to smile for publicity shots and whines about how hard it is to be a celebrity. You go, Katie! Kristen, take notes!

    i think all those things are what she keeps in perspective and why she said there are others with much bigger problems who are worse off. it's not her fault the media don't want to publish photos of Joe Schmo who can't get a job. l

  10. ah...

    Yeah, I can imagine it is pretty easy to have perspective. She got rid of her hubby. She got out of Scientology. She probably got a huge chunk of change, and gets $400,000 a month in child support. She has her daughter. She can probably get an acting gig fairly easy. Plus, she has her own business. So, she has to deal with the press. Sob, sob, poor little thing! Maybe you shouldn't have become an actress. This girl is going to do just fine.
