On June 29, the news broke: Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, a shocking decision that spawned more than a month of scrutiny into their new, separate lives.

But just a day prior, Holmes was busy with a rather routine activity for a celebrity – she was giving an interview for C Magazine.

“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,” senior editor Kelsey McKinnon, who conducted the interview for the lifestyle glossy, tells WWD. “Most noticeably, the one name decisively absent from her lexicon: Tom Cruise.”
