Actress Katie Holmes is still appalled by the fact her brief topless scene in thriller The Gift has been turned into a plot point in stoner comedy HAROLD AND KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE.

The former DAWSON'S CREEK star was unaware of the praise heaped on her breasts as two marijuana-smoking potheads discuss the scene in which her character bares all - until friends told her to check the film out.

And Holmes is far from happy with being the subject of the titillating chat.

She says, "It kinda hurts my feelings, but I guess it's a compliment if people think you're sexy.

"My brother-in-law always tells me that if you're in the paper and you're not being arrested, things are going well. So maybe I should consider it a success."
