"I don't want that moment in my life to define me, to be who I am. I don't want that to be what I'm known as. I was an actor before, an actor during and an actor now," Holmes told People magazine in an interview.
The actor, 35, who is all set to turn director, says she wants to explore new challenges.

"I feel ready for new challenges," she added.
Holmes is also reprising her role as Jackie Kennedy besides starring in Miss Meadows.
