By now the world knows Katie Holmes is divorcing Tom Cruise, but was she dropping hints about an impeding split months in advance?

In an new interview with Elle magazine for their August issue, it appears so! The Q&A was conducted six weeks before the actress filed papers to end her 5-year-marriage, and some of her quotes are quite telling.

When asked about her superstar husband, the 33-year-old was cryptic, saying, "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."

An accomplished actress in her own right, the brunette beauty doesn't believe that being the wife of the world's biggest action star has as many perks as one would think. "Things are not handed to anyone. If anything, you work a little bit harder when you're in such visible circumstances," she explained.

So what's the biggest difference between her twenties and thirties?

"It's like you're trying too hard to figure everything out [in your 20's.] I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier. I'm starting to come into my own. It's like a new phase," she says.

Miss Holmes sounds like she's ready to step out of her estranged husband's shadow and be an independent woman!
