Katie Holmes, striking a fashionable pose on the cover of C's September issue, wasn't afraid to speak her mind in this interview that she gave the day before she filed for divorce!

During the interview for the mag, senior editor Kelsey McKinnon recalls Katie's demeanor.

    "Going back over the tapes, there were signs: Holmes was certainly very aware of herself, laying a couple cards on the table but never showing her whole hand. Most noticeably, the one name decisively absent from her lexicon: Tom Cruise. She never actually refers to him by name over pages and pages of transcription."

When asked if Suri, 6, brought them closer as a couple, Katie told the mag, "I don't know. I mean. . . I don't know. People have been having babies a long time."

'Nuff said.
