“Oh, women can do that?”: ‘Charlie’s Angels’ Actor Helped Resurrect Katie Holmes’ Career After Divorce With Tom Cruise Left Her With Nothing

American actress Katie Holmes rose to fame in the late 1990s and early 2000s. She began her acting career in high school productions and eventually made her television debut in the TV series Dawson’s Creek in 1998. Today, the actress is a famous name in the entertainment industry but there was a time when the star ran out of work and struggled to stay relevant. That’s when her good friend and actress Drew Barrymore came to her rescue.

Last month, Holmes appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show and thanked Barrymore for inspiring her to become a producer. Over the past decade, Holmes has been in the process of healing from her failed marriage with actor Tom Cruise.

“I mean, you know, I am such a fan of yours and everything that you’ve done in your career has been like an inspiration and it gives me confidence because it’s like, when you started producing, it was like, ‘Oh, we can do that? Women can do that, we can? and so, thank you. I mean, you just give so much.”

It was quite wholesome as Barrymore then sat next to Holmes and gave her a warm hug.
