As fresh faced Joey in Dawson's Creek

Katie Holmes is the quintessential girl-next-door type, turned famous actress and now, hip mother, (with the handbag collection she has, I’d be her friend.) The youngest of five children, her big break came at sixteen, when she sang and danced to Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird for a modeling competition. Bored of the Vogue version of herself a year later, Katie moved to Los Angeles for movie auditions. A second audition landed the petite brunette a role in the feature film, “The Ice Storm.”

An audition tape fell into the hands of Kevin Williamson, who cast her as the loveable Joey Potter on the hit series “Dawson’s Creek“. During this time she was accepted to the prestigious Columbia University with a high SAT score, but deferred admission to play Joey.

Before Katie and Tom Cruise became the next Brangelina, Holmes built up her resume with little-known films

 like “Wonder Boys“, “Pieces of April“, and “The Singing Detective“. Now, she’s busy raising toddler and mini-fashionista Suri in the fast-paced lifestyle she and Tom lead, rumour has it there’s another baby bump surfacing under her chic frocks.

TomKat, as they’ve been dubbed, had a whirlwind romance starting in 2005. Cruise’s couch-jumping episode on Oprah attracted their relationship some unwanted attention, and his morning wedding proposal in Paris left the press holding their breath until an elaborate wedding in Italy.

 Katie recently starred in a Broadway production of “All My Sons” and received critical acclaim for her role. Ever wondered how she stays in such good shape? we hear the petite actress loves to run three times a week to clear her head. Soon you just might see her next in Hyde Park logging laps; her and hubby Tom are relocating to London for more aspiring red-carpet roles. It’s looking as though Katie might actually be as close as the girl next door.
