Katie Holmes certainly appears to be making the most of single life, after heading out to dinner in New York with a friend. Just two days after settling her divorce from Tom Cruise, the actress donned a pair of skin-tight leather trousers, a cream blazer and a pair of heels and headed to a central New York restaurant.
The former Dawson's Creek star looked exhausted upon entering the restaurant, though still managed to crack a smile for photographers. According to the UK's Daily Mail, Holmes' tiredness may have something to do with the trip to the zoo that she had enjoyed with 6-year-old daughter Suri throughout the day. The actress now has sole custody of her daughter, with Cruise being granted generous visitation rights. Her carefully executed divorce from the Hollywood star has been wrapped up in just 11 days, with Holmes setting the ball rolling by using a disposable mobile phone to speak with her lawyers and rapidly moving apartments. Meanwhile, in California, Cruise has returned to work on the set of his forthcoming movie 'Oblivion', being snapped without his wedding ring, though appearing upbeat - he was even seen being hugged by his colleagues between takes.
In a joint statement announcing their divorce settlement, the pair said, "We want to express our respect for each other's commitment to each of our respective beliefs". Cruise's affiliation with the Church of Scientology has been heavily scrutinized in recent weeks.
