The girls of "Dawson's Creek" are up for a reunion, but the guys may not be so gung-ho.

First, James Van Der Beek said he "hides" when he hears the WB show's theme song and now Joshua Jackson admits the series makes him "wince."

In a new interview with the UK's Guardian, the Canadian actor who played Pacey Witter in the teen drama from 1998 to 2003, has admitted he doesn't look back with nostalgia on the show that made him a star.

"I look back on the haircut, the bad skin and the breaking voice with a wince!" he said. "I guess I look back the way other people look back at their college years. 'Dawson's Creek' was my college experience."

The 34-year-old Vancouver native, who now stars in the TV series "Fringe," admitted that he is partially responsible for the enduring attention on Pacey. This is thanks  in part to a 2010 Funny or Die video in which he mockingly presented an alternative to Comic-Con, Pacey-Con, an event for all things Pacey.

"I'm keeping him alive in a way that I didn't quite think through," Jackson said. "It's just that, in my life, I've found that show is so damn important to so many people."
