Katie Holmes Keeps a Perspective on Life

Katie HolmesKatie Holmes tries to keep her life in "perspective."

The former Dawson's Creek actress - whose divorce from ex-husband Tom Cruise was finalized last month - admits being in the public eye can be tough but knows she's a lot better off than some people.

Katie - who was given primary custody of the couple's six-year-old daughter, Suri, while Tom was awarded extensive visitation rights - said, "I have a lot of feelings about the press. But there are a lot of people with much bigger problems and who are less fortunate. I try to keep it all in perspective."

Katie also says she tries her best to keep Suri grounded, despite the youngster being born to incredibly wealthy and successful parents: "I spray-paint shoe racks, because, why not? I think, 'Oh, I'm a great mom' - and then it doesn't really pan out the way I think it's going to. But the intention's there. I've always painted and done crafts at home - I have to stay creative in every aspect [of my life]. My sister teaches art, and she gives me a lot of ideas."
