Katie Holmes was a guest on The Late Late Show on Wednesday night, and she chatted with James Corden–along with fellow guests Judd Apatow and Ryan Reynolds–about her time on Dawson’s Creek. The talk soon turned to kissing, and the question arose about which of her former costars–James Van Der Beek or Joshua Jackson–was the better kisser?

Playing coy, Katie Holmes turned the tables on Corden.
“Who do you think?” she asked him.
“I think Der Beek, because I would get straight up in his grill,” James Corden said.
“I went to high school with Josh, and I can tell you right now, he’s a terrific kisser,” Ryan Reynolds said. He and Joshua Jackson attended Kitsilano Secondary School in Vancouver together.

“Well, I mean if he says so…” Katie Holmes said, laughing at the foolishness the three men conjured.
Those who remember the days of Dawson’s Creek likely recall that Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson were dating when the show first aired. That would have made choosing Van Der Beek as the better kisser a bit uncomfortable.
Another uncomfortable topic that came up on The Late Late Show was how kissing an actor on TV compares with a real-life first kiss.
“It’s so awkward because with a first kiss in [real] life, if it doesn’t go well you can kinda be like, ‘Oh I gotta get home,’ or ‘thanks.’ You never have to deal with that person again,” Katie Holmes explained. “But on screen, you’re gonna have to have lunch and you’re probably have to work together tomorrow, so it’s a little bit [awkward].”
Something else that’s awkward is the rumor flying around (yes, it’s still out there) that claims Katie Holmes is dating Jamie Foxx.

Do you think there’s any truth to the rumor?
