Long before she became Suri Cruise’s mom, Katie Holmes was best known as Joey Potter, the girl next door from Dawson’s Creek.

More than a decade after the show that shot her to fame left the airwaves, Holmes paid homage to her TV roots with a nostalgic Instagram post. The occasion? Throwback Thursday, of course.

Holmes shared a snapshot of her Rolling Stone cover from September 17, 1998, captioning it, “#TBT the tire swing!”

In the waterfront photograph, a 19-year-old Holmes sits on a tire swing and stares serenely at the camera, wearing a classic ’90s uniform of denim cut-offs and a tank top.

The star, now 36, still knows how to have some good old-fashioned fun. She recently shared a cute, grainy Instagram video of her summer activities, which include riding a bike, jumping on a trampoline and making a splash in the pool.
