Katie Holmes' life is about moving forward.
“I don’t really regret anything that I’ve done," the 36-year-old reveals. "I’ve learned from everything, and everything sort of leads you to the next place. I just keep going.”
Katie, who left the Church of Scientology and divorced Tom Cruise in 2012, says she is "a normal person and I do walk around."
“I have a very normal life, and I happen to work in an industry that is abnormal,” she says. “Daily life, I take a train and cab; it’s just about getting from here to there, and I don’t care how I do it. I have to get there.”
"I don’t shy away from risks,” Katie continues. “I’m just interested in a lot of different things. I don’t even think of it as a risk; I think of it as something exciting and new."
"As I’ve grown up, I think that the harder you work the more successful you are," she adds. "From what I have seen, the people at the top, they’re just constantly working and constantly surrounding themselves with other successful, like-minded creative people.”
However, with this keep-moving-forward attitude, the actress brings some bad news for "Dawson" fans hoping for a return to the "Creek."
"['Dawson’s Creek'] was such a special time in all of our lives [but] some things are better when it stays the way it was,” she says, all but shutting down a potential reunion of the popular show. “I would love to get together with everybody, [but] I’m not sure a reunion would be as fulfilling as what we all want it to be. I’m game for anything.”
Meanwhile, in October, ex-Scientologist Leah Remini admitted to an alleged riff with Katie while they were both in the church. After learning of her claims, Katie released a statement apologizing to Leah for upsetting her.
"I regret having upset Leah in the past and wish her only the best in the future," the statement read.
The apology left Leah tearing up on-air, reflecting on what she says Katie had to do "to protect her daughter."
