Katie Holmes may not be heading back to the creek anytime soon. The former WB star, 36, said in a new interview with Yahoo! Style that there are no plans for a Dawson's Creek reunion, but it's not because of her fellow famous costars. 

"I don't know, does it work today?" Holmes told fashion editor Joe Zee. "I don't want them to grow up. You know, it's kind of like your parents — they never get out of their fifties, that's where they are."

The Ray Donovan star wrapped her run as Joey Potter on Dawson's Creek in 2003 after six seasons. The gang of Dawson Leery (James Van Der Beek), Jen Lindley (Michelle Williams), Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson), and Jack McPhee (Kerr Smith), among others, spent much of the final season in college, fast-forwarding to their mid-20s for the series finale.

Holmes left her character Joey in May 2003, completing the story with the young woman living in New York City as a book editor and finally choosing Pacey over Dawson.

"We just did it, we all enjoyed it," Holmes said of the five years she and her castmates spent on the show. "It was of a certain time, it was pre-Internet. There was an innocence there."

The mother of Suri, 9, added that she keeps in touch with the crew from the creek, regularly walking the same red carpets as Jackson and his girlfriend Diane Kruger, and bumping into Williams out and about. 

"Every now and then…. I just saw Michelle, I just saw her in Cabaret, she was amazing," Holmes said. "So we all run into each other now and then."
