‘Dawsons’ reunion: Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson meet up for coffee in NYC

Katie Holmes is still rehearsing for her Broadway debut in New York City, while husband Tom Cruise is working in L.A. Katie has been photographed walking the NY streets (in pegged jeans!) looking rather lonely for weeks. So it was no surprise that when ex-boyfriend, “Dawson’s Creek” co-star Joshua Jackson showed up for a visit, she was very glad to see him. Of course, the tabloids are making it look like there was some romance going on. Joey + Pacey 4Ever!

After her rehearsal for her new Broadway play All My Sons, Katie Holmes was delighted to receive a visit from a handsome and familiar man – her ex-boyfriend Joshua Jackson. “Josh arrived at the theater with flowers,” says a friend. “Katie was so happy to see him. They had coffee together at the back of the theater.”

Josh, 30, who called Katie several times before their August 27 reunion, is living in New York with his girlfriend, actress Diane Kruger, 32. Yet he clearly still has a soft spot for Katie, 29. When asked if he plans on seeing her in her Broadway debut, Josh tells In Touch: “Of course, of course!”

Though their romance ended years ago, Katie, who once called Josh her “first true love,” still has warm feelings for him, too. “We did date,” she has said. “We fell in love. And I love him now, and we have a friendship.”

However, Josh and Katie’s friendship has faded in recent years. When Katie started dating her husband in 2005, she “gradually stopped returning his phone calls,” the pal shares. And Josh wasn’t invited to her wedding. “The invitation must have been lost in the mail,” he joked at the time.

But Katie always treasured her first love. “She has missed Josh so much as a friend,” says a pal. “He’s such a sweet guy. She hugged him several times.”

[From In Touch print version, Sept. 22, 2008]

Ooh! They had coffee together! They hugged! Several times! They MUST be doing it. I love how melodramatic In Touch is with this story of two old friends, in the same city, meeting to catch up and wish each other well. It’s as if Katie isn’t capable of being around a man unless she’s in love with him.

The article goes on to say that Katie is keeping the meeting a secret from her husband Tom Cruise. As if Tom doesn’t have ScientoloSpies documenting her every move.

But as harmless as their renewed friendship is, her confidant says that Katie has hesitated about telling her husband about Josh, who she made plans to meet up with again during her stay in New York.

“She doesn’t see why she should tell Tom at this point,” explains the friend. “She’s keeping it under wraps because she would be heartbroken if Tom tried to stop her from seeing Josh.”

Oh, the drama! Poor, tortured Katie! It’s like “Dawson’s Creek” all over again. In Touch is really laying on thick in this article- there’s even a sidebar with a comparison of Joshua and Tom, with a handful of silly reasons why Katie might be more interested in Josh- he’s taller! The romance between Katie and Josh couldn’t have been that big a deal, because I never heard anything about it. I always thought Katie’s first serious boyfriend was actor Chris Klein. And even if he was her “first true love,” that doesn’t mean they can’t have coffee together without it meaning anything more than that. Katie has been looking rather lonely in New York. Even with Suri there to keep her company, there’s something to be said for hanging around with other grown-ups. It’s nice that Josh reached out to her to show her some support.

Katie Holmes is shown on 8/24/08 and 8/30/08. Joshua Jackson and his lovely girlfriend Diane Kruger are shown on 5/22/08 at Cannes. Older photo of Holmes and Jackson below via Laney Gossip. Other pictures credit: Fame.

    I miss the old Katie Holmes. Her old face was so lovely.

  2. Strawberry In Disguise says:

    I agree….she used to be really pretty. I guess Tom sucked all the cute out of her :S

  3. KERRI says:

    According to the Scientology Hand-book, Code# XENU666-666, Katie is in need of another re-program session. She is starting to think on her own, which could only mean, her brain has unscrambled and went back to default. No. No. Not allowed.

    Also, punishment involves kneeling in front of Hubbard’s larger-than-life painting and pleading for forgiveness. Also, leave on Hubbard’s alter:

    Pacey 4 Eva.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if they did leave their partners for each other? I mean, I would feel bad for Diane Kruger, but not Xenu-Lover.

    *dreamy sigh*

    Joshua Jackson does seem like such a sweetheart. I would do dirty things to that boy.

  5. Lola says:

    OMG, she is totally cheating with him. :roll: It must be a slow week if such an event is turned into a national emergency.

    While at it celebitchy, you might add that varitey is reporting the sales of All my sons are going very well (You did love to report the contrary even though the sources were dubious). Actually one of the biggest selling non musical play this fall alongside Equus.

    Here is the link

    She sure ain´t using her sexual viles to sell tickets, that´s for sure. Do tell, those of you who know. Do you need to turn into an androgynous robot- about as sexy as a garbage disposal unit in a sink- because you leave your husband for a while to do a play?

  7. geronimo says:

    “…You did love to report the contrary even though the sources were dubious.”

    At least CB speaks her mind and doesn’t post under a number of different names on those same threads, like a certain someone who shall remain nameless, in a pathetic little bid to get their point across. Dubious indeed. :roll:

    LOL, Geronimo, I guess I walked straight into that one. :-) What can a girl do but try :wink:

  9. Granger says:

    You know, I’m not a big TomKat fan, but I think it’s a little unfair of people to say she “used to be” so pretty/cute/lovely. That photo of her with Joshua was taken — what? 8 years ago at least, right? I sure as hell changed a lot between 22 and 30. I think most people do. Your face loses the baby fat that makes it so cute. I think she’s still very pretty — just in an older way. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

  10. Codzilla says:

    Never looked twice at Josh until I saw him recently on the The Fringe. My, how he’s grown. I’ll take him.

  11. Sol says:

    She used to glow and smile when she started dating tom not the look you see on her now.Joshua is a true gentleman that despite being in a serious relationship with diane kruger and despite having lost contact with katie ,takes some time to show support and offer and show her that she still can counton her friends.She looks lonely lately .Joshua is adorable !

  12. paris herpes says:

    She was far cuter than though, the whole Stepford Wife look makes her look 40 instead of 29. She needs to stop trying to trendset and just be herself.

  13. geronimo says:

    :D sorry, lola, but you DID! But your response made me laugh so all good! Peace. 8)

  14. Lola says:

    LOL Geronimo. Peace 8) I owe you though, for not mentioning any names :wink:

    Katie was a beautiful girl who grew into a stunning woman. There were less pictures of her then, almost all in situations where she was supposed to be smiling. Now there are pictures of her going to work everyday. You don’t expect a grin from her in each and every one of them. Have you ever been hounded by the paparazzi? Let me know whether you will smile all the time.

  15. Sarah says:

    MSat, IMDB even has that “first true love” comment on both of their pages listed. They’ve been together before and during the first season of Dawson’s Creek. While they were – on screen – fighting the whole time. And after they broke up in real life, the writers made them a couple on screen which both stated was one of the reasons they really became good friends after their relationship with any hard feelings in real life.

  16. Nina says:

    Something struck me as I looked at the pictures… you know Katie really can’t dress. Does scientology take away your sense of style? She used to be stylish. I was never a big fan of hers, but you have to admit something is wrong with her. I think his name is Tom…

  17. Jeanne says:

    That blue raincoat/trenchcoat is hideous. It’s a toss up re: who looks more miserable Posh Spice or Katie Cruise. What’s with the Bea Arthur long vest? I’ll bet Joshua Jackson wonders what the hell happened to Katie? Her and Dog the Bounty Hunter wear those damn sungalsses 24-7. What are they hiding?

  18. Alexis says:

    Okay I am the biggest Joey and Pacey fan EVER!!! And yes I would love to see them together just cause they were eachothers first true loves. Okay that’s understandable. But just cause they had coffee together doesn’t mean ANYTHING!!!

    Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson are not Joey and Pacey in real life, those were just characters. In the real world Katie is married with a child and Josh is dating someone. Does that get anything through your head.

    Stop making mountains out of mole hills cause you have run out of things to talk about.
