The Girl Next Door
Nerdy Katie Holmes
MyPAEK Magazine - UK
Katie Holmes has revealed she was a nerd at school.
The former 'Dawson's Creek' actress - who is now married to 'Mission: Impossible' star Tom Cruise - admits despite her calm and elegant exterior, she is actually just like everybody else.
She said: "I can't deny that I'm a nerd. I am who I am. I'm pretty normal, I'm not a smooth type of girl, I run into things, I trip, I spill food, I say stupid things - I really don't have it all together. But I'm working on it - I really am."
Katie also revealed she never had much luck with boys while she was at school.
She added to Britain's OK! magazine: "In hindsight, I think going to an all-girls school meant we missed out socially. We came out of school and it was suddenly, 'Oh my God! Boys!' I was all about, 'How do I look? What is he thinking?' We weren't used to being around boys in a normal setting and seeing them as friends."
