Katie Holmes on 'Dawson's Creek': 'I Had a Ball Doing It'

Katie Holmes gets super seductive on the cover of Elle Canada‘s February 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 36-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On Dawson’s Creek: “I don’t know if I have moved past it, but I don’t really care. I had a ball doing it, and it’s really nice to be a part of something that did affect people. And it created a lot of opportunities for all of us.”

On her career: “Sometimes offers are flying in, and sometimes they’re not.”

On her directorial debut: “There aren’t as many movies being made, period, so the challenge is to create projects for yourself.”

    Movies are being made. You just aren’t being asked to be in them.

    Getting closer to the truth…..

    From: “It’s the life of an actor. We don’t really have a lot of choice in the matter. You have dry spells, and then you have times when there is a lot of opportunity,” (DuJour)

    To: “Sometimes offers are flying in, and sometimes they’re not.”

    Eventually: “No one is interested in seeing me on screen”

    All you see is Katie “Joey Potter” Holmes in any role she plays. She doesn’t have range or real charisma that could carry her in a role.

  • spinclass312

    Honestly, she needs to just let go. She’s too careful. This = blandness. She’s a celeb whether she likes it or not, and that feeds how many roles she gets and how much producers/casting people think she can bring in terms of coverage. She needs an image makeover ASAP. Please date someone interesting or have a scandal. Inject some personality, please.

  • Bambi

    Pretty much every woman in hollywood says that they have to create opportunities for themselves as a producer or director. Even the oscar winners complain about the lack of good roles.

  • RocioBengochea

    My hunch? I think she is afraid of that. Right now she rides the wave of the post divorce sympathy. If she did something scandalous she would risk losing that. I do agree though, the Suri’s mom angle is getting very boring probably even for those that like her.

  • Bambi

    I like her. She’s so honest, gracious, and humble.

  • Dani

    This cover of InTouch is the usual tabloid bull but it shows in the bottom corner one of the few pictures that Tom was seen with Suri since the split. It is a blurry picture. They were trying to be private and someone snapped it. I don’t think it was a paparazzi since they only took the one picture and didn’t chase them for more. It is not new but the point is he does see her in private without the press. There is also a picture of them at a bungee jumping for kids private park taken by the owner of the store.

  • LittleDistraction

    she is just a classic beauty

  • LighterNote

    Why do I have a vibe that this piece of BS fabrication was invented and sent to In Touch directly from KH’s PR team? People say Harvey hates TC, any possibility?

  • Bambi

    Why is it that every time there’s a tabloid story that makes Tom look bad, people presume that it’s from Katie’s camp? Nobody accuses him of leaking the many negative tabloid stories about Katie. Actually, I think the latest story makes both of them look bad, to still be fighting after all these years.

    I never believed that TC had completely abandoned Suri, but I think his time with her is limited. There have been some sightings of Katie and Suri in Ohio, so it looks like this xmas will be yet another holiday spent w/out her father.

  • LighterNote

    Because TC is not the one try to exploit the single mother, ‘All We Have’ , on the verge of poverty narrative. Simple as that.

  • Bambi

    You’re naive if you think he didn’t play the PR game just as much.
    “inside Tom’s Private Pain” “Tom’s new life ALONE” “katie is a manipulative goldigger who used if for fame and money” etc. etc.

  • nina

    lol you had to go waaay back to 2 years ago to find something. Of course they both played the media during there divorce, but tom moved on from it and only focuses on his career when he saw that the divorce didn’t affect it much. Katie, however, convinced her fans that is escaped from the monstrous tom. Yeah sure she is soooo terrified form him, she left NYC and bought a house in LA 30 mins from him. you tried tho.

  • Bambi

    well, most of the time his fans don’t even acknowledge the fact the he did play games during the divorce. For years after the divorce, they were still bashing her for supposedly leaking stories, while ignoring the fact that he did the same. I think they both played games and they’ve both moved on.

    Katie already won sole custody so it doesn’t matter if she moved back to LA. I don’t think she’s scared of Tom, but he’s barely there these days anyway.

  • nina

    Radar online had emails from Toms camps pleading Katie’s camp to stop leaking stories. And as for moving to LA yeah it matters when she pretended to “save ” her Daughter form Scientology yet move to close to its biggest headquarters gold base

  • Bambi

    Tom was being slammed in the media for abandoning Suri. His camp reached out to her’s for help. And for the record, her lawyer did send a cease and desist letter to the tabloids, telling them to shut-it. So, if anything it simply proves that she was not trying to portray him as a bad father. She went out of her way to help.

    $cientology’s biggest hq is actually in Clearwater, FL. Tom himself has claimed that Suri is not a scientologist anymore. I don’t pretend to know all the details about their settlement, but I would imagine there are some strict provisions about where he is allowed to take her. I don’t think Suri will be going to gold base anytime soon.

  • nina
  • Bambi

    This is from the original lawsuit that Tom filed.

    However, by September 15, Ms. Biermann and Mr.Shapiro were advised by representatives of both Mr. Cruise and Ms. Holmes that this was completely false – that Mr. Cruise never promised Suri that he could accompany her to school and that, to the contrary, Ms. Holmes and Suri both knew in advance that Mr. Cruise would be inLondon that day working.

    Hi Nina, she is wrong about custody. It was posted here not too long ago but she asked for sole custody but only got primary. There is difference. Regardless the child is not an object you own so if Katie tries/tried to cut Tom out of her life it will end up backfiring in the end.

  • nina

    You keep talking about that lawsuit, but that’s not what im talking about. What I’m saying is that her camp did plant stories about him. If you read the whole story

    Not only that but staging paparazzi to take pictures of her. she went on a full on smear campaign against him while he was playing the media only to defend himself. What shocks me is that after all this manipulation she still couldn’t manage to get a decent career. Thing is as a tom cruise fan I know his faults and i don’t absolve from his mistake , but you katie fans give her 0 responsibility.

  • MerryChristmas

    Very true! Nothing is ever her fault. Her career or her mistakes or anything. LOL. There were a couple people in the press who even joked about her calling the paps to play the public for the super mom role act. I think she still calls them to get shots of her and Suri. You are right though, after all her tricks and supposed public support it didn’t revive her career. Her lack of talent is what came through at the end of the day. I also replied to you above but not sure if you saw it.

  • nina

    yup I got it. Good thing she got primary instead of sole.

  • Bambi

    The point is that she defended him against the claims that he was a bad father. She didn’t have to, but she did. And yet his fans still accuse her of trying to make him look bad. I’ve already admitted that she did probably leak things during the divorce. Once the divorce was settled, she moved on and even tried to help him.
    His fans are the one give him 0 responsibility. Everything that you accuse Katie of could easily apply to him.

    You’ll note that it was not a Katie fan who brought TC up. I only commented because I got tired of his fans always blaming her for everything. Otherwise, I don’t really care about him one way or the other.
    Well, that’s it. Merry Christmas to all those celebrating.

  • Bambi

    Many sources stated that Katie has sole legal custody. Not 100% sure, but I believe The Enquirer even published a copy of their divorce decree that stated she has sole custody. TC fans cling to the one report from US weekly that stated primary legal custody. In any case, you can call it “sole” “primary” or whatever you want to call it. The important thing is that Suri is out of the cult, and pretty much EVERY source agrees that Katie is in charge of her education. That’s a pretty big win in my book.
    Who said anything about cutting him out of her life? The point is that she is calling the shots in terms of how the child is raised.

  • danielle

    I think either Katie had something really “juicy” on Tom that he didn’t want coming out or Suri isn’t his bio child. The reason I’m saying this is that he was there for Bella and Connor. While married to Kidman they alternated films so one was always there for the kids (you can check IMdB to see that this is true). After the divorce when she had physical custody there were pics of him with the kids. After the kids chose to live with him you often saw them together and he often talked about them and how he would stop filming the minute one called. I think he loved(s) Suri, but I also think Katie is not the sweet thing everybody thinks she is. She played a highly manipulative game leading up to the divorce and during and after the divorce. It is hard to believe that the divorce paperwork would state that Tom can’t use Suri for PR while Katie does all the time. Call me cynical, but you can usually tell when pics are taken by a pap vs. just another person that sees them and most of Katie’s photos with Suri are pap-taken. Furthermore I think she calls them in order to cement her (in her mind at least) “I’m the mom of the century” portrayal.

  • MerryChristmas

    It was PEOPLE mag too who often is the go to place for celebs. Not just US Weekly. And ‘every source’ as you say was just repeating the other gossip. The rest is speculation.

  • MerryChristmas

    well it could also be that when C and B were younger he had his mom and sisters around to help. Now their kids are older and they don’t live with him. C&B were raised very close to their cousins. He also knew he was spending the next two years in London filming both EOT and Mi5 and even less of his family would be around to help. I think it’s harder for a 50 year old man to have primary custody of a girl that young. I do agree that maybe he also didn’t want a public fight since he and cult were getting hammered but I don’t think it has to mean she had something on him. I doubt there are many secrets left about Scientology that haven’t come out. She leaked other things she could have had friends leak that stuff too.

  • Bambi

    There are 2 types of custody, physical and legal. People mag only mentioned physical custody. She could have sole legal custody and primary physical custody. Even People mentioned that she will be in charge of Suri’s education.

  • danielle

    I agree with some of what you said, but Tom’s mom and sisters still live with him and the cult still does all his domestic work. He always said that his kids were the most important things in his life. It is hard to fathom that a parent would give up two to three years of their children’s lives to film in another place. The younger the child the more of their development you miss. And just the fact that the divorce went through in record time and he contested nothing — well it seems to me she had some sort of weapon. He drew out the divorce with Nicole for a long time and hired PI’s to follow her and that included illegal wire tapping of her phones (this is documented as the PI was arrested and it was part of the court case). The child support is also rather low for someone of his income. Katie played a big PR game leading up to the divorce and it seems to me that Tom would have fought for Suri if she didn’t have something on him. Let’s face it unless there is a Sony type hack or leak we will never know. But I still don’t think Katie is the sweet thing she tries to portray. Someone I know knows someone who worked with her on a film…and they said she can be sickeningly sweet, but then there is the other side…HER WAY.
