The Girl Next Door





Career advice from her father: "My dad always says, 'Do your best, and if they don't like it, s--- on them'". (Entertainment Weekly)

Work habits: "I like doing day shoots better than night — getting up early and getting home around 7 p.m. Night shoots are fun once in a while because you bond in weird ways. You're totally out of it, and you start talking about the weirdest things." (Entertainment Weekly)

Her weirdest career moment:  "My favorite movie when I was growing up was Pretty in Pink, and I just worked with Molly Ringwald [on Killing Mrs. Tingle]. I was totally starstruck the whole time. It was bizarre having lunch with her. I told her I was a big fan, and she was like, 'Oh, thanks,' probably thinking the whole time, You're such a freak." (Entertainment Weekly)

Her nude scene in "The Gift":  "It was a difficult, intimidating thing for me to do. But let's just say it was an interesting experience and the nudity wasn't gratuitous." (Twist)

Thoughts On Fans: "It's flattering when 13 year olds come up to me. I was the same way.  I guess I still am… But it's kind of scary when other 19 year olds look at me funny because they've seen me on TV.  I want to say, 'I'm normal. I'll be your friend. Be my friend.'" (New York Daily News, 8/6/98)

Bad habits: When it comes to vices (as in the indulgence of degrading appetites), Holmes is just looking for a jolt — of caffeine and sugar. "I'm so spoiled — I must have a Starbucks vanilla latte every day. Otherwise, it's going to be a bad day. I also love Jelly Bellies. But that's bad. Don't tell my mom." (Entertainment Weekly)

Friends:  "My friends at home are into rap. I'm like, yeah (bobs head), trying to fit in. They're like, Katie, you're such a nerd. I'm like, I know I'm a nerd. I never said I was cool. I'm always the girl that's like, what? What's going on?" (Rolling Stone)

Being a bit of a nerd:  "I really can't deny it, I am who I am. I'm pretty normal. I'm not that smooth type of girl. I run into things, I trip, I spill food. I say stupid things...I really don't have it all together." (Rolling Stone - Austrailia)

Her best momory in high school: "The sex education courses! (laugh). The teacher explained to us how to not get pregnant. The best way he gave to us was "Abstain!" (laugh). At the moment, we listened to him and after..." (Télé Star)

Her most embarrassing moments:  "I think tripping alot, like when I'm at a crosswalk and my ankle gives out or something. It's like, 'Good one Katie. You can dress her up but you can't take her out.'" (Twist)

True confession time:  "[I got caught] kissing. Like by my parents. It was so horrible. It's so embarrassing, I'm blushing." (Twist)

Her living style:  "I'm not the easiest person to live with. I'm kind of a slob. So for me to consider a roommate, it would have to be one of my sisters or something." (Seventeen)

Being neat or messy:  "I'm definitely a messy person...I know where everything is but I just can't organize. I don't make lists and find scripts on the laundry machine, and under my bed, or in the bathroom, kitchen. It's bad, I really need to take control." (Rolling Stone - Austrailia)

The internet generation:  "I'm not computer literate. I e-mail. I know how to get on the Web, but I haven't crossed over into the internet world. I'm old-fashioned, I guess." (Twist)

Favorite way to pamper yourself:  "My mother loves to give me pedicures. She pulls out my feet and makes them feel great." (People)

Keeping in shape:  "I'm really into my running workout. Running really helps me clear my head and makes me feel good, especially when I'm stressed." (Twist)

Her dark side:  "I have some road rage inside of me. Traffic, especially in L.A., is a pet peeve of mine." (Seventeen)

Things she hates:  "I don't like being cold. It gets cold in North Carolina [where Dawson's Creek shoots]. I just like being a baby, and all the big crew guys give me their jackets." (Seventeen)

Her fantasy guy:  I like dark hair and eyes. And tall. Someone with an outgoing personality and a good sense of humor. (16)

Her first kiss:  "It was awkward and nerve-wracking and wonderful all at the same time," she giggles. "I was so petrified of doing it. I thought it was something I just couldn't handle. Once it was, it was okay. Then I wanted more!" (Blush)

Being a good girlfriend:  "I'm easy going as a girlfriend," she says. "I'll go out for a chat and have some junk food. I think I can handle the girlfriend part. I can take jokes, and I don't mind people having fun. I'm also a good listener and I make a good shoulder to cry on." (Blush)

Her most romantic date:  "One time I got caught in a rainstorm with somebody, and we were dancing in the street. It was pretty romantic." (YM)

Dating co-star Joshua Jackson:  "We did date. We fell in love. And I love him and now we have a friendship, which is nice." (Mademoiselle)

"Our love relation lasted during all the first season of Dawson's Creek and part of the second season. We are since really good friends. So Joshua was my first lover, I'm not ready to forget him!" (Télé Star)

Her relationship with Chris Klein:  "We were set up through friends. I don't want to say much more about it. Chris is a wonderful person and I'm very, very happy. It's a really great relationship. We manage to keep it separate from everything else that is going on around us." (Twist)


"She isn't the girl next door, she's the girl you only wished you could live near."
"A lovely, refreshing dish of lemon sorbet" (David Letterman)

"You could take her picture in the dark and she'd still look good." (Joshua Jackson, Seventeen)

"She's very sweet and unassuming. I don't think she knows how beautiful she is." (James Van Der Beek, People)

"To meet her is to instantly fall under her spell. She is that rare jewel, the real deal. In one word: hypnotic, smart, funny, sweet, shy, boisterous, sneaky, talented, pretty, soulful, sleek, sophisticated, innocent, naïve, comical, womanly, childish, caring, gracious, dependable, nurturing, protective, generous I could go on." (Kevin Williamson, YM)



"Joey's full of emotions. I'm like her in that we both say what we feel, but Joey goes a little further. I wouldn't say a lot of the things she says." (E!Online)

"I'm actually working on becoming more like my character. She's so smart and strong and witty." (US Magazine)

"Joey isn't the girl who gets all the guys. I wasn't like that, either, so I can relate." (Seventeen)

"I'm a small-town girl just like Joey…I was a little bit of a tomboy and also the youngest in my family, so I thought I knew everything… Like Joey I made a lot of mistakes, but fortunately I haven't had the tragedy that she's experienced in her life." (Columbia TriStar)
