Katie Holmes is feeling nostalgic.
The actress took to Instagram on Friday, October 11 to share a Flashback Friday post honoring her TV days. The post featured Katie's turn on the February 2011 cover of ELLE magazine, which, according to the magazine's cover, was the TV issue.
Now, if you're thinking, "WAIT A SECOND, DAWSON'S CREEK ENDED IN 2003 SO WHY WAS KATIE COVERING THE TV ISSUE OF A MAGAZINE IN 2011?" first of all, sit down, breathe, and stop yelling. Second, Katie was also ruling TV in 2011, just not as her iconic Dawson's Creek character, Joey Potter.
In 2011, Katie starred as former first lady (and forever style icon) Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the miniseries The Kennedys. The role was perfect for Katie, who is a dead ringer for Jackie O and effortlessly embodied her grace and confidence in the series (which is on Amazon (opens in new tab), if you want to check it out).
"I worked as hard as I could, because I loved her. On set there was this feeling that we had to create something very special, because these people were very special," Katie told ELLE of playing Jackie O in her interview for that issue. "[The Kennedys] were like movie stars. There was such a professionalism to their public image."
