Suri Cruise, daughter of Tom Cruise, has made her debut on the big screen. She and her mother, Katie Holmes, are listed in the credits of a new movie about being locked down.
Suri Cruise, who is 16 years old, is the daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. They were married for six years, from 2006 to 2012.
And now she’s following in their footsteps. She sang in her first movie, “Alone Together,” about two strangers who are forced to live together in the early days of a pandemic.
A summary says, “At the start of the pandemic quarantine, two strangers end up staying in the same upstate New York rental. The lockdown makes things worse because it forces them both to stay and deal with the unexpected feelings that grow between them.
Holmes, who is 43 years old, wrote and directed the movie, which just had its first showing at the Tribeca Film Festival. She also plays June, a food critic, in the movie.
She could only say good things about her daughter, who covers “Blue Moon” during the opening credits.
In a conversation with Yahoo Entertainment, Holmes said: “I always want people with the best skills. So, I asked her. She has a lot of skills. She promised to do it, and she did. I let her do what she wanted to do. In general, that’s how I lead. It’s like, “I think this is what we all want, so go do your thing.”
The actress said it wouldn’t be her daughter’s only time to sing on screen, and she added, “She did sing in ‘Rare Objects,’ which is the movie we made last fall.
“Besides that, she’s a 16-year-old high school student.”
Holmes gave birth to her only child, Suri, when she was 27. She has tried to keep her family life mostly private by not putting pictures of her daughter online.
In 2019, she talked to Elle UK and said that she liked becoming a mother at the age she did.
She said, “I was happy to become a mom in my 20s.”
“It’s great that our ages match… how should I say it? My child’s age and mine at the time have always been a good match. We got older together.”
Holmes said this about the kind of house she runs: “It feels like home. I have many photographs. I like vintage art from flea markets. Since we’re in New York, I want our apartment to be warm and soft since the city is so busy and hard. So that’s how we do things. And many different colors.”
