Katie Holmes is notoriously private, but over the weekend the Dawson's Creek star took to Instagram to share a glimpse inside her stunning home. The star had shared a video on behalf of the American Film Institution's movie club, where she announced the latest film – Erin Brockovich. In the black-and-white footage, Katie was sitting in what looked to be the study, which featured floral wall art and a chandelier. The mother-of-one said in the clip: "Hello, welcome to AFI Movie Club. I'm Katie Holmes and I'm honoured to be announcing today's movie which is Erin Brockovich – my favourite. I am a huge fan of Steven Soderbergh and I love Julia Roberts, and I remember when this film came out it really inspired me to keep making movies. It's an incredible film. So go to afi.com to find out how you can watch."

Katie and Suri had fun customising their clothes at the beginning of lockdown
Katie – who resides in New York - grew up in Toledo and last year she went back to her hometown to deliver a commencement speech to the graduates of the University of Toledo. The actress spoke about how her parents supported her dreams after she was discouraged as a young actress, telling students: "My mum saw the look on my face, which was pretty discouraged, and she ushered me out there… Kate, don't worry. You have nothing to be ashamed about. You are you and you are who you are and you are from where you're from. Go in, have fun, be yourself. The next audition I had, I nailed." Katie is incredibly close to her family, and is the youngest of five children, with three sisters and a brother. Her parents and sibling are still based in Ohio, and the star often goes back to visit them.
