Katie Holmes Talks Reuniting With 'Dawson's Creek' Cast, Turning 40, & More

Katie Holmes is pretty in pink on the cover of Elle UK‘s December issue, on sale on November 7!

Here’s what the 40-year-old Ray Donovan actress had to share with the mag:

On turning down the Dawson’s Creek audition: “I was playing Lola [Damn Yankees, school play]. I even got to wear the feather boa. I thought, there is no way I’m not playing Lola to go audition for some network. I couldn’t let my school down… so I told Kevin [director Kevin Williamson] and [TV network] The WB, ‘I’m sorry, I just can’t meet with you this week. I’ve got other commitments.’”

On reuniting with the Dawson’s Creek cast: “It was really nice. We all went out to dinner and, I think, for all of us to really sit back in amazement that people still watch it and care about it. It was bigger than all of us and we all feel grateful that we got to contribute to it and benefit from it. We all got so many opportunities because of it.”

On being a mom: “I was happy to become a mum in my twenties. It’s been nice that our ages fit… how do I put this? Every age that my child has been and my age at that time has been a good match. We kind of grew up together.’

On turning 40: “I directed my first film, All We Had, a couple of years ago and I’ve been working to get my second film ready so I’m excited to continue. It’s interesting to be 40, though, because when you’re young, you think, ‘I’m never going to be 40!’ And then the day comes and it’s like, this is OK. I’m still doing everything I’ve always done. I feel happy with where my career is and I’m excited for the projects that I have coming up to come to fruition.”
