Katie Holmes may forever be known as Joey Potter on Dawson’s Creek (where she very nearly didn’t end up with Pacey), but it seems that the successful business woman and actress is now adding another string to her bow.
The 38-year-old might have appeared in small film roles over the last few years, but it seems she is channelling her creative energy into new projects as she has now enrolled at Harvard Business School under her company’s name, Noelle Productions Inc, which is listed online as ‘an award-winning video agency delivering impressive visuals and engaging content’.
Katie shared a picture of her name plaque with her Instagram followers, writing: ‘I am so thankful and excited to be @harvardbs with so many brilliant people.’
She has enrolled in Harvard’s Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports program which teaches students how to ‘acquire proven approaches for launching and managing creative products and portfolios, managing and marketing talent, assessing and determining when to make smaller versus blockbuster bets, identifying and capitalising on market disruptions, and other strategic challenges.’
She’s joining a long list of A-list alumni who have graduated from Harvard, including Channing Tatum, Tyra Banks and Natalie Portman – but one of Katie’s classmates will be none other than Shakira’s husband, professional footballer Gerard Pique.
What a star-studded classroom.
