Katie Holmes on Hillary Clinton's loss: 'It hurt my child so much'

Katie Holmes says that her daughter, Suri, was impacted by the results of the presidential election.

The "Kennedys: After Camelot" actress said Clinton's loss "really made me think, 'Oh we have a long way to go as women ..."

"I thought Hillary was going to win this year, and it was such a - it just hurt so badly when she didn't".

As Entertainment Tonight reports, Katie Holmes has always been a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton, frequently attending campaign rallies and events for the former secretary of state before Clinton's devastating 2016 election loss to Donald Trump on November 8.

'It's wonderful to have my 10-year-old see a woman up there doing well and being very clear and thoughtful in her responses and in her passion for what she wants to do for our country, ' she said.

Just prior to Trump's win, Holmes told People in October that she and her daughter 'watch the debates together, ' hailing Clinton for her pressure under fire.

In another recent interview, Katie similarly opened up about her daughter - and revealed she is more dedicated than ever to being a good parent to her little girl. "And help each other so that strength is number one and, having a great education", she added.

As Hager compared the movie and her real life and spoke about "younger secret service men", Holmes turned tables and asked, "So you never fell".

Holmes directed one of the episodes of the series, just months after making her directorial debut with the film, "All We Had".

Speaking on The Jenna Bush Hager Show on Sirius XM, the actress revealed that the 10-year-old had been very upset by the outcome of the election, given Hillary had been poised to become the first female United States president back in November.

"I was in Austin, Texas", Bush Hager recalled. "But you called me and I am such a fan of yours, but I loved Dawson's Creek", remembered Bush Hager.

"It was the era of Dawson's Creek", she continued.

Katie Holmes reprises her role as Jackie Onassis following "The Kennedys" back in 2011.
