Forget the stories of Katie Holmes being afraid of handing Suri over to Scientology’s Sea Org, or the amusing-but-completely-unfounded story about her walking in on Tom Cruise getting it on with David Beckham (best image in our head right now!). Us Weekly has the most plausible explanation for TomKat’s split: He nixed her participation in a Dawson’s Creek reunion. The horror!
“[Producers] were begging her to sign on for a reunion movie,” a source told the magazine. “Tom said absolutely no way and thought going backward would be bad.”
This coming from a man who loves reprising his famous Risky Business dance and who’s made four Mission: Impossible movies? To be fair, his career is in a much better place than poor Katie’s is. But we think maybe the post-Dawson’s success of James Van Der Beek, Joshua Jackson and Michelle Williams might rub off on her if she joined them onscreen again.
This goes along with the stories that Cruise didn’t allow his wife to be in anything too “sexually compromising.” Pacey would never have dared be so controlling of Joey’s career! Anyway, now we have hope that one day, the kids will head back to the creek, and Katie will live up to the promise she once showed in movies like Pieces of April.
