The 37-year-old actor claims he always knew his former 'Dawson's Creek' co-star, 33, who has been nominated for three Oscars, would eventually become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood because she is multi-talented.
He also told the New York Post: "She was always a deep thinker, way beyond her years. She was the youngest of us, age-wise, and the oldest in every other way."
Meanwhile, James admits that he was "freaked" out by fame after starring in 'Varsity Blues' with Jon Voight in 1999, and can relate to Justin Bieber, 20.
He said: "It freaked me out. I remember signing my first autograph and hardly being recognized and two weeks later, making an appearance in Seattle, and [the promoters] said they were expecting 200 people. I said, 'No way are 200 people coming.' More than double that showed up. Screaming girls. Barricades. They shoved me into a car to get out of there. I am proud to say it was the first time I'd ever been shoved into the back of a cop car. I realized very quickly that this was something I had zero control over."
