As the only biological daughter of Tom Cruise, Suri’s life is always disturbed by paparazzi.
While the Mission: Impossible actor neglected his daughter for more than a decade, Katie Holmes tried to protect her from the consequences left by her ex-husband.
In an interview in Glamour magazine on April 12, Katie Holmes caught attention when she rarely mentioned Suri Cruise.
Katie Holmes said she always protects her daughter from being bothered by paparazzi. “What’s really important to me, to my daughter, is that I want to protect her because she was very easily noticed when she was young,” the actress born in 1978 shared.
Katie added she’s grateful to be a mother, especially Suri’s mother. She praised her daughter as an “extraordinary person”.
Referring to having Suri sing the soundtracks for Alone Together and Rare Objects, Katie confided, “I hope she does something in my movies. I asked her opinion. Both experiences It all comes from the same meaning related to my love in the industry, which is participating in different projects and becoming family with people. It’s a safe, beautiful and bright space. creating… Having her there means everything to me, because she is my heart.”
The public’s obsession with Suri stems from the dysfunctional relationship of her parents – Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. As the only daughter of one of Hollywood’s most famous actors, since her birth in April 2006, she has become the focus of international media and public opinion.
Instead of keeping his daughter’s private life, Tom Cruise chose to let Suri get used to fame early. The girl often appears in front of the media and attends big events and luxury parties with her parents. Since the age of 3, Suri often appeared in famous fashion magazines, being called the beautiful title “fashion icon”, and also compared to fashion editor-in-chief Anna Wintour of famous magazines. Vogue. She was even exposed to cosmetics and makeup from a young age.
Growing up in luxury, many people judged her to be deprived of her childhood. Instead of having fun and participating in extracurricular activities with friends her age, she “sinks” into the lens of the press, inappropriate parties, expensive fashion stores…
However, everything changed after Katie and Tom divorced in 2012. From being a pampered little princess, Suri had to endure her father’s coldness. Currently, even though she is about to turn 17 (April 18), Suri has never met the Mission: Impossible star again.
A source exclusively told Page Six in March Tom is not a part of his daughter’s life. Suri’s application to college also had no input from her father.
During his 2012 defamation trial against Bauer Media, the Top Gun actor admitted his relationship with Scientology played a key role in separating him from his biological children. He also confirmed that part of the reason Katie ended their marriage was to protect Suri from the mysterious cult.
Although she no longer has any connection with her father except for a $400,000/year child support allowance until she turns 18, Suri is inevitably affected by Tom’s reputation. Not overly bothered now, but in the early years after Tom and Katie broke up, the desire to know more about Suri skyrocketed.
