She looks the same as ever, but the Katie Holmes of yore is long gone.

Now that this is a bad thing, says the actress in the new Marie Claire.

"I'm excited to begin a new phase in life," the 32-year-old actress says. "Roles I may have been afraid to play before, places I want to travel to with my daughter. I'd like to build a design business. But not too fast.

When she's not playing a slutty pumpkin on How I Met Your Mother, Holmes is first and foremost a mom to adorable five-year-old daughter, Suri Cruise.

Holmes, who recently hit the big screen in the thriller Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, says she better understands certain roles thanks to being a mom.

"You will do anything for that person, and you have strength you didn't know that you had, which is what I like about my character," she said. "So I think that being a mom definitely gave me much more insight to this character."
