Katie Holmes is not all that eager to see a reunion or reboot of Dawson's Creek any time soon.

The 36-year-old actress told Yahoo! Style that there are no plans for a Dawson's Creek reunion and doesn't want to revisit the characters all grown up.

"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."

When we last left the Dawson's crew, which included Joey (Katie Holmes), Leery (James Van Der Beek), Jen Lindley (Michelle Williams), Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson), and Jack McPhee (Kerr Smith), among others, they were in their mid-20's. The finale in 2003 actually fast-forwarded from college to seeing the characters out in the world.

In the finale of the series, Katie Holmes' character was living in New York City as a book editor. She eventually chose Pacey over Dawson.

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

Just because she is not all that keen for a reunion doesn't mean Katie Holmes doesn't enjoy running into her former cast mates from time to time.

When asked if she sees her cast mates, Katie Holmes responded, "Every now and then.... I just saw Michelle, I just saw her in Cabaret, she was amazing. So we all run into each other now and then."
