Katie Holmes’ Life Is Really Hard

By: The Superficial / October 19, 2011

Katie Holmes appears in the latest issue of Marie Claire where she talks about handling the day-to-day stress of being a “working mom.” Because Katie Holmes works and raises her kid just like you, ladies. It’s amazing she gets out of bed each morning. Via Celebuzz

“As an actress who is also a mother, you don’t have the luxury of drama.”
When it comes to being there for her daughter, she’s always on the job. “My daughter was with me the other day at a work event and it was a long day,” she says. “I took out some paper and markers that I had in my bag, and someone said to me, ‘Oh, that is so cute,’ and I looked at her and thought, No, this is not cute. This is what all mothers have to do.

“And then after that, you have to take two, sometimes even five minutes telling whichever nanny is on duty that day – God, it’s always someone new. – what to feed your child for dinner before putting her to bed so you can make a reservation. Yet people have the audacity to call that ‘adorable.’ You want to know what’s adorable? Watching Tom Cruise try to reach the top shelf in the fridge. Raising a child with the option to eat, sleep and/or generally live your life exactly the way it was before they were born without consequence? Not adorable. Back me up, moms.”
