Watching your parents act in movies and television is surreal enough — a reality difficult to avoid when your parents are Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. But for Suri Cruise, who watched her mother star in “Dawson’s Creek” at around the same age Holmes was when she first started on the series, their similar ages made it even more surreal.
“I think it’s probably weird since she’s a teenager,” Holmes told Variety. “I’m not like, ‘You need to watch mommy’s work.’ 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.” Still, Suri might be able to glean the same insights her mother was able to take away from the show as a teen.
Holmes discussed her teen soap roots for the April 2023 Glamour cover story, saying, “I was just 18 when we started, and I really appreciated the writing because I felt like, as a teenager, I had so many different feelings, trying to go from being a girl to a woman. And I felt like [creator Kevin Williamson] had this way of putting words to those feelings.”
