She probably benefits from her husband’s success as Van Der Beek has a reputed net worth of over $8 million earned through success in his work as an actor.
Life and career
For most of her life, Kimberly has lived out of the limelight as a business consultant. She has always been interested in film and eventually began her quest to produce “Teen Paparazzo” in 2010. The documentary tells the story of a 14-year-old boy who works as a Paparazzi photographer, showing his success as he is often welcomed for his appearance and age.
Later, however, it has a negative effect on his life, causing him to stop pursuing the pursuit.
It was during this period that she met James Van Der Beek and started a relationship. Years later, she ventured into the creation of another documentary – “Heads Up: The Disappearing Art of Vaginal Breech Delivery”, which chronicled the serious impact of a flawed study on the falling price of breech deliveries, leading to more women in the US undergoing cesarean deliveries.
Husband – James Van Der Beek
James grew up in Cheshire, Connecticut, where his father worked as an executive for a cell phone company after retiring from a career in professional baseball.
His mother, on the other hand, was a gymnastics teacher and became so after years in a career as a dancer. During his teens, he developed an interest in acting and asked his mother to take him to auditions. This prompted them to travel to New York where he got his first chance in an off-Broadway play, “Finding the Sun”.
He was 16 years old at his debut, but then returned home to continue his high school education. While attending Cheshire Academy, he became part of the theatrical troupe in his place and worked on several musicals such as “Shenandoah”.
In 1996, he made his feature film debut in the independent film “I Love You, I Love You Not”, a romantic film starring Jude Law and Claire Danes that follows the relationship between a woman and her granddaughter who begins to fall in love. He then continued this education at Drew University, where he applied for a scholarship, but eventually dropped out to pursue acting full-time.
Rise to Fame – Dawson’s Creek
After working on several theater projects and some independent films, Van Der Beek ventured into television in 1997, where he auditioned for several pilots.
This prompted him to star on the show”Dawson’s Creek‘, because he won the part after his audition. The following year, the debut was highly successful, leading to one of the most popular shows of the time, boosting the careers of many of its cast members. He became internationally known as Dawson, and it led to more opportunities, including movie roles.
They show us a teen drama series that tells the story of a group of friends who live in a fictional town in Capeside, Massachusetts. He is joined by Katie Holmes who plays his love interest, and best friend, Joey Potter, Joshua Jackson who plays his friend Pacey Witter, and Michelle Williams who plays New Yorker Jen Lindley, who moves to their area and befriends the group.
A few years after the show, Van Der Beek was cast in the movie “Varsity Blues,” which topped the box office and stayed there for two weeks. He was also named as one of the most beautiful people in the world by “People” magazine.
Life after Dawson’s Creek
After the end of “Dawson’s Creek”, James took on film roles, including in “Scary Movie”, “Texas Rangers” and “Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back”. He also worked on the movie “American Psycho” in which he played the younger brother of the lead actor Patrick Bateman, played by Christian Bale. After that, he was in a film adaptation “The Rules of Attraction”, based on the novel of the same name written by Bret Easton Ellis.
The film has gained cult status despite being initially unsuccessful.
After several failed projects, he returned to the theater where he performed mainly in off-Broadway productions. Occasionally, he appeared on television in guest roles as seen in “How I Met Your Brother” portraying one of Robin Scherbatsky’s early boyfriends, played by Cobie Smulders. In 2008, he joined the cast of “One Tree Hill” playing a character who was the opposite of Dawson Leery. He also did television movie projects and got constant work, but he was unable to replicate his fame during his time as a teenage star.
Some of his latest projects include “CSI: Cyber”, in which he starred until his cancellation. He also took part in the 28th season of “Dancing with the Stars” alongside Emma Slater, with the duo reaching the semifinals before being eliminated.
Kimberly met James in 2010 after just sorting out the divorce from his seven-year marriage to actress Heather McComb. The two began a relationship and were married later in the year in Tel Aviv, Israel at the Kabbalah Center. They have five children together and in 2018 they announced they were expecting a sixth. However, she suffered from a miscarriage late in pregnancy.
