Katie Holmes has offered a rare glimpse into her home life with her teenage daughter, Suri Cruise. In a recent interview with Variety, Holmes revealed that Suri, 16, has watched her mom’s hit teen drama, Dawson’s Creek, and the two had a “good laugh” about it.
“She has seen Dawson’s Creek and I think it’s probably weird since she’s a teenager. I’m not like, ‘You need to watch mommy’s work,'” said Holmes. “But during the pandemic, we had a good laugh about it.”
“It’s wild to have a daughter who’s almost the same age as I was when I began all this,” she added.
According to Page Six, though fans feel nostalgic and may want a Dawson’s Creek re-make, Homes quickly shut it down saying,
“I’m so grateful for that experience,” she told Screen Rant in July 2022. “We’ve definitely talked about it over the years, but I feel like that show captured that time period and that time in all of our lives.
“So, I think it’s great that you are nostalgic for it. So am I. But it’s like, do we want to see them not at that age? I don’t know. I don’t think [so]. We all decided we don’t actually.”
The actress, 44, shares Suri with her ex-husband Tom Cruise. She was 19 when she began her role as Joey Potter on the WB series.
Writing for Vogue Australia’s November issue in 2020, Holmes opened up about how she spent her time in lockdown during the pandemic. She explained that the unusual year allowed for more introspection and quality time with her daughter, which she described as “the most precious gift.”
“Hobbies such as sewing, painting, and writing became new hallmarks of satisfaction and having had time at home to just be. To listen. To live for a moment in time without the pressure of results and instead appreciate the natural rhythms of mother and daughter was the most precious gift,” she wrote.
Holmes also remembered how, during isolation, she reinforced her mantra to be more present in her daily life. “During this time of uncertainty, remembering to be creative and positive has been something I have tried to keep at the forefront of my mind,” said Holmes. “Throughout this experience, the through-line for me has been a heightened awareness of each moment and really taking it in and appreciating it.”
