The actress poses topless on the cover of the August issue of Glamour. Striking a seductive pose while wearing belted denim pants, the 35-year-old beauty tells the magazine, "I have a tightly edited closet. I like what I like. And I repeat a lot. But I'm always comfortable in jeans -- I feel like I can really do anything when I'm in them."
"The Giver" star also opens up about dating after her split from Tom Cruise two years ago. "I am really focused on motherhood and work right now," she reveals. "Motherhood is the greatest gift. When I became a mother, my life completely changed."
So, what's been the biggest change? "I've seen Frozen a lot," she says of watching the animated Disney musical. "But the biggest change? I think you don't know -- I didn't know how much love I had in me. It's overwhelming. Every day I discover more about this spectacular human being I get to be the mother of."
Holmes takes pride in being a hands-on mom to her 8-year-old daughter, Suri. "Plain pasta with butter is a hit," she says. "Chocolate-chip pancakes are a hit -- together with chocolate-chip cookies. I do a homemade chicken finger. That's a hit."
The "Dawson's Creek" alum credits her family for keeping her grounded. "My family has been so crucial to my outlook on life. I started acting at 17 and had success at an early age, where all of a sudden people knew who I was," she explains. "But my parents always treated me the exact same way at home and reminded me of gratitude. And that's been a grounding force."
