Katie Holmes never looks back on time with Tom Cruise

KATIE Holmes has no regrets about her time with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

The 35-year-old actress, who split from the 52-year-old actor in June 2012 after six years of marriage, insists she is "really grateful" for all of her experiences but prefers to focus on the future and caring for their daughter, Suri, eight.

Asked if she ever felt like making a deal to go back to the low-key life she had before she started dating the A-list actor in 2005, the 'Giver' star told Matt Lauer on the Today Show: "You know what? I never really look back. I just approach life [taking] it one day at a time. I'm really excited about where I am right now. I've had some really wonderful creative experiences. I'm just really grateful."

The brunette beauty blindsided the Scientologist when she divorced him amid reports she was concerned about how the sect would impact their daughter's life, and she admits trying to give Suri a normal childhood is still one of her top priorities.

She said: "Of course you try your best. I try very hard because I'm very grateful for my upbringing, my parents, my siblings. I try to do what they did for me for my little one."

She added: "The most important thing for me is letting her know how proud I am and her accomplishments mean everything. Whatever I do is whatever. It's really just about her. That's what I think is most important."
