Rewind: Katie Holmes is the 'First Daughter'

Katie Holmes has recently received massive media attention for her pending divorce from Tom Cruise, which has overshadowed her career as an actress.
This Pop Culture Rewind diverts your attention back to Holmes' acting career to a 2003 interview about her upcoming film First Daughter, in which she plays the title role of the President's daughter.
In the featured flashback above, Holmes fields a question about her thoughts on the most recent First Daughters (the Bush daughters and Chelsea Clinton) and the quality of their lives.
"I always see pictures of them in all of the magazines so all I can say is that it must be tough for them," Holmes says. "There's a lot of pressure there...and I do feel sorry for them in some ways."
Then then-24-year-old actress also talks about the emotional conclusion to Dawson's Creek, the show that brought her to fame.
"It was pretty tough [to say goodbye]. We were down there for six years and we all started so young and really grew up together," she says endearingly. "We were all really proud of the ending...Overall, it was such an amazing experience and I think that we went out strong so that made us all happy, but it was emotional. I don't like change."
The film went on to be one of Holmes' worst at the box office and hardly met half of its budget with a measly $10.4 million in ticket sales.
Holmes may not have liked change but it sure served her well. Her next film after the box-office failure of First Daughter was Batman Begins, which more than doubled its budget with $373 million at the box office.
Change can be good.
