Tom Cruise crawled into a hole and pulled the hole in after him when he split with Katie Holmes in 2012.
But on Monday, the actor made a rare comment about his youngest offspring’s acting aspirations while speaking with the Sydney Morning Herald on the red carpet of his new film -- The Mummy.
When asked if he thought his young daughter, Suri Cruise, might have been bitten by the acting bug like her famous parents, he responded: "You never know, you never know."
The 54-year-old then quickly turned the subject back onto himself, saying: "For me, I just love making movies. I have been doing it my whole life. I am shooting Mission Impossible right now.”
"I just left from France to be here today and while I was doing it, I was in post production on another film, one I have coming out in August called American Made and I am also prepping two other films, it's just what I do," he told the publication.
We see what you did there!
Suri, now 11, made headlines last year after she was reportedly caught making secret phone calls to her dad.
At the time a source revealed to Star magazine that, “Suri has been talking to Tom behind Katie’s back. He looks forward to her texts.”
Suri is reportedly not allowed to speak to her father publicly because of his position in the Scientology community.
The source added that “Katie is very concerned about Suri being brainwashed; that’s why she wanted to monitor every conversation.”

“She’s well aware of how powerful Scientology is, and she doesn’t want Tom luring Suri away from her. It’s a constant fear.”
The source added: “It’s not surprising that Suri is confused by the lack of communication between her parents.”
“She’s growing up, asking more questions and it’s becoming harder to shield her from the whispers. She wants to speak to her dad.”
While her relationship with her father remains the subject of much intrigue, in 2008 Tom proudly told Oprah that Suri was the centre of his universe.
It's unknown when Tom and Suri last saw each other.
