Katie Holmes doffs her top for a sizzling photo spread in Glamour magazine. She says she’s itching to direct a movie.

Katie Holmes oozes sultry sexiness in a new topless Glamour magazine photo spread. Since throwing off the yoke of Scientology and her stifling husband, Tom Cruise, Katie’s reveled in her new found sexual freedom.

The 35-year-old actress has posed topless at least twice before, although she’s always covered up with a well-placed arm or hand.

A year ago in March, she appeared topless (same style pose) in a photo spread for IRIS jewelry. No need for clothes to get in the way of her baubles.

She struck a similar pose in a campaign for H.Stern jewelry. The ads, which were shown primarily in Israel show Katie stripped down in an bikini top that has slipped off her shoulders.

Of course Katie did a now infamous full-on topless scene in the 2000 movie “The Gift.” But it’s definitely a side to Katie has only revealed seen since her split from Cruise.

She’s shaken off the dowdy housewife image, although she still dresses down when she’s out in public.

She reveals in the interview that she still likes to take the subway in New York City where she lives. And, she’s determined to give daughter Suri Cruise as normal a life as she can.

As far as her career goes, Katie says she’s ready to direct a movie.

“What I’ve learned is you can’t take yourself too seriously, but you can take your ideas seriously,” she tells the magazine.

Since the divorce she’s appeared in a couple of indie movies, but has a big budget film, “The Giver,” coming up for release Aug. 15.

The science fiction film, directed by Phillip Noyce, stars Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgård, Odeya Rush and Taylor Swift!

Based on a 1993 Lois Lowry novel, the film portrays a world where there is no conflict, racism or sickness and everybody has a place in it. But the cost for domestic tranquility is high… humankind’s humanity.
