(Newser) – Katie Holmes never really went away, unless you count her 2008 stint on Broadway, but she's coming back nonetheless. The actress, who just completed four films and is shooting her role as Jackie Kennedy for a History Channel miniseries, talks to New York about her family:

  • On Suri the fashionista: "She picks out all of her own clothes and has since she was 1½"—and sometimes Katie's, too. "I had this beautiful red gown and these royal-blue shoes that I wasn’t planning on wearing, but Suri made me put them on and so I was like, 'Okay, I trust you.'"

  • On her husband: "I mean, he’s Tom Cruise! His body of work is incredible. Every movie he’s done has done really well. I look back, and everything’s a classic. And he’s helpful and sweet and gracious. He’s quite an incredible human being."
  • On gossip about her marriage: "It’s there, it’s one of those things. It must seem weird, I guess, having so many people watching. It is weird. I get it. But you just, you know, smile and nod."
