“They play great music, and it’s so fun. It targets your upper body, which is good because I can forget to do that.”
In terms of her diet, Katie prefers a balanced approach, focusing on nourishing her body without obsessing over it. She candidly stated: “If I’m going out to dinner with friends, I enjoy a nice meal. If there’s junk food, I have it and then just eat healthier the next day.”
This reveals her philosophy of savoring her meals, indulging in occasional treats while ensuring she opts for healthier options most of the time.
Describing her everyday diet, Katie mentioned: “Usually I make a smoothie in the morning with greens and fruit. And I eat a lot of salads and fish. I try not to have too many carbs, like pasta and bread, because they make me so sleepy. But I love food, and I love cooking.”
Despite acknowledging she’s not a seasoned cook, she enjoys the process, emphasizing the satisfaction she gains from successfully preparing a good meal.
Even with her busy schedule juggling multiple projects including acting, directing, and her creative hobbies, Katie is mindful of beginning her day on the right note. She told WSJ: “I try to start the week with something creative for myself, like a dance class or maybe I’ll paint for a little bit. I’ve been painting for most of my adult life. I find it to be very soothing in between projects.”
Of course, a significant part of Katie’s life is her daughter, Suri, 16, whom she shares with her ex-husband Tom Cruise.
Regarding her motherhood goals, she says: “My biggest goal has always been to nurture her into her individuality. To make sure she is 100 percent herself and strong, confident, and able. And to know it.”
