Katie Holmes:

Enjoying some me time, Katie Holmes jammed to her iPod while strolling down the New York City streets on Wednesday (October 2).

The Batman Begins beauty rocked a super chic ensemble as she happily enjoyed the Big Apple weather after dropping her daughter Suri Cruise off at school.

In related news, the 34-year-old actress recently chatted with British InStyle magazine about chopping off her long locks.

When it comes to hair, I find it easier to manage when it”s long. It”s just more versatile. I liked my hair short when [hair stylist] Enzo Angileri styled it – he did the cut. But when I tried it on my own, I was like, “This isn”t working!””

Meanwhile, Holmes chatted about the differences between herself and Suri, saying, “My daughter Suri is much more girlie than I was as a child. I was a tomboy. I rode my bike everywhere and played basketball. There”s a reason I”ve always been seen as the girl next door – the “natural” look on Dawson”s Creek was me off-screen too. I went to an all-girls high school and we never wore make-up – it was all about getting good grades.
