Katie's first interview as Mrs. Cruise

Katie Holmes's first interview since becoming Mrs. Tom Cruise will hit the newsstands on February 20. In the Harper's Bazaar article, Holmes gushes about her new husband, saying, "Tom makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world and has since the day I met him. I love being with him. I love calling him 'husband.'... I have a whole new set of responsibilities. My work is very important to me. My family is very important to me. When I go to work, it will be the right thing, worth my time and worth my time away from my family." Of the possibility of working with Cruise, Holmes says, "He's the biggest movie star ever, and he's an unbelievable actor. It would just be a real honor." The actress admits to craving cupcakes during her much-photographed pregnancy with daughter Suri, but says the whole experience was easygoing. "I felt so proud to be having a baby and so excited and I felt closer to other women - to my sisters, to my mom," Holmes says. "I felt empowered, like, 'I've given birth. I did it. There's nothing I can't handle.'" Of motherhood, she adds, "I've really enjoyed this time that I have taken to be with Suri as well as the challenges of the first couple of months - feeding and pumping, learning to decipher what each cry means. Is she hungry? Is she tired? Does she need a fresh diaper? And figuring out how to really help her." The actress's spread in Harper's Bazaar was styled by Victoria Beckham, and the pair "were like girlfriends" on the set, according to the mag's special projects director. After being introduced a year and a half ago by their husbands, the unlikely duo bonded over being young mothers and sharing life in the spotlight being married to superstars.
