Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise, Dawson's Creek reunion

Katie Holmes loved the idea of starring in a ‘Dawson’s Creek’ reunion film, but was forbidden by her overbearing husband Tom Cruise. Now that the two have parted ways, we hope the reunion is back on!

Before Katie Holmes married Tom Cruise and entered into the wacky world of scientology, fans knew her as Joey Potter, a wide-eyed girl from the wrong side of the creek torn between Dawson and Pacey. During the six-season run of Dawson’s Creek, Katie became extremely close with her costars, James Van Der Beek and Joshua Jackson.

When the brunette beauty was approached about taking part in a reunion, she jumped at the idea, but was shot down by her controlling husband.

“[Producers] were begging her to sign on for a reunion movie,” a source told Us Weekly. “Tom said absolutely no way and thought going backward would be bad.”

Though Dawson’s Creek was often criticized for it’s over-the-top acting and SAT-style vocabulary, it didn’t deter Katie from wanting to reunite with her old pals. “I had so much fun working on that show and I loved everyone so much and I think about it with such fond memories,” she gushed during November 2011 appearance on Good Morning America.

Katie “didn’t care how ‘low-brow’ he [Tom] thinks Dawson’s Creek is,” added the source. “She wanted to do the movie and reconnect with her fans. And have fun — something she rarely does anymore.”

Now that Katie has filed for divorce, maybe a reunion special is finally in the works.
