Actress Katie Holmes wants to be a 'dependable' parent to her daughter Suri, 10, so she gives herself a curfew when she isn't working.
Holmes, who has Suri with her former husband Tom Cruise, ensures she is home at a sensible hour when she isn't working, reports etonline.com.
'When I'm not on set, I'm being a mom. I'm doing mom stuff,' Holmes told Modern Luxury magazine.
'When I go to an event, I leave at 10 p.m. because it's really important to me to be a mom that is dependable,' she added.
Despite her high profile, Holmes says that she never has to avoid things she likes to do because of the attention she attracts.
Asked if there's anything she wishes she could do if not under scrutiny, Holmes said: 'I kind of do everything I feel like doing. I don't monitor my behaviour for press purposes.'
