James Van Der Beek - Van Der Beek Cringes When He Hears Dawson Theme
James Van Der Beek flees in embarrassment every time he hears Dawson's Creek's memorable theme tune played in public.
The popular TV drama finished in 2003 after six successful seasons but the show's popularity still lives on through the theme song I Don't Want to Wait by Paula Cole.
However, the series' star isn't a fan of the track and is left red-faced whenever he hears it.
Van Der Beek says, "For some reason - and again, I need to get over this; I'm (a) 35-year-old, grown-a** man - but I want to hide somewhere. If I'm in public and the song comes on, my first instinct is to find somewhere to hide - go in a corner, duck behind a rack, run into a dressing room, find the nearest restroom, like, just get out of there.
"It's a Pavlovian response, and I think it's time for me to get over it. But for some reason, it just triggers inside of me. It's a great song, but it's nowhere near my iPod."
