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 forDawson 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.
