Chatting to Modern Luxury, the 37-year-old said that when she is not on set she is "doing mum stuff" as she confesses to wanting to be "dependable".


"When I go to an event, I leave at 10 pm because it's really important to me to be a mom that is dependable."


"I think the most important thing in my life is giving my child the childhood I want her to have," Katie continued.


"That comes first. That dictates where I work and when I work because it's my main job right now."

Katie, who was married to Tom Cruise for six years, seems to be very family based, especially for Suri, as she added that her ten-year-old is often surrounded by her cousins.


"We do a lot of cousin time with my nieces and nephews."
