Los Angeles: Actress Katie Holmes has revealed she received a lot of criticism regarding her face at modelling school.

The 35-year-old mother of one said instructors at her school dissected her face on the first day, reportedly.

"They were trying to teach beauty. They took me as an example and they dissected my face. They said, `you see, not perfect. Her eyes too far apart, her nose, lips not perfect, but altogether she`s not bad`," she said.

Holmes said she is excited about her role in the upcoming film `The Giver`. "I`m really excited about where I am right now, this movie. I`ve had some really wonderful creative experiences. I am just excited about the future," she said.

The Ohio-born actress, who plays a mother in the film, also spoke about her own relationship with her daughter Suri.
"I think, of course, you try your best. I try very hard because I am very grateful for my upbringing and my parents and siblings. I try to do what they did for me for my little one.

"The most important thing for me is letting her know how proud I am and that her accomplishments mean everything. It`s really just about her and that`s what I think is most important," she added.
