Before Tom Cruise and Suri, Katie was fresh off Dawson's Creek and trying to be a movie star! It's definitely been a rough week for Katie Holmes. The news that she is divorcing Tom Cruise has been everywhere and there aren't any signs of it letting up.
We thought it would be fun to take a look back at a younger, happier Katie, way back in 2004!
Holmes was promoting the movie First Daughter, where she played the President of the United States' daughter and followed her attempts to be "normal" and go away to college.
In the interview, Katie was casual in a baseball cap as she talked about looking to the lives of Chelsea Clinton, Jenna and Babara Bush and even Princes William and Harry for research. She acknowledged the pressure they must be under to be in the public eye.
Katie was also fresh off of the series finale of Dawson's Creek and still pretty sad about the show's ending, saying it was "emotional."
"We were together for six years. We started so young and really grew up together," she said. "It's hard to say goodbye but our relationships will last a long time. It was emotional. I don't like change."
What do you think of Katie before she met Tom? What do you think she should do next?
