While there’s no denying that a now 17 year old Suri has inherited many of her mum’s (Katie Holmes) features, as Suri gets older it’s becoming more and more apparent how much she looks like her father Tom Cruise, too.

Comparing Suri to her dad when he was just starting out his career in the early ’80s and the pair share the same striking smile, wide eyes and profile.

Since TomKat announced their divorce in 2012, it’s been widely reported that Tom has lost contact with his youngest daughter.

“Tom hasn’t seen or even called Suri in about six years. Tom has no relationship with Suri,” an insider claimed in US Weekly.

In May 2017 during a promotional tour Down Under, the 55-year-old made a rare comment about his only child with ex wife Katie.

The mother-daughter duo were in great spirits as they watched a hocked game in New York in 2017.

When asked if he thought the 11-year-old (at the time) might have been bitten by the acting bug like her famous parents, he responded to The Sydney Morning Herald: “You never know, you never know.”

Suri is reportedly not allowed to speak to her father publicly because of his position in the Scientology community.

While her relationship with her father remains the subject of much intrigue, in 2008 Tom proudly told Oprah Winfrey that Suri was the centre of his universe.

It’s unknown when Tom and Suri last saw each other but according to a 2023 report from Page Six the pair continue to be estranged.

The sad news doesn’t come as a huge surprise given how ex members of the Scientology church are viewed as ”suppressive” and as ”enemies”, with former Scientologist Leah Remini telling The Post in 2020 that this would explain the lack of relationship between father and daughter.

As of April 2023 there are few new photos of the almost adult, but she is still living life away from the spotlight (for now).

Unlike her parents who are both actors, it seems Suri may venture into the world of music with an apparent knack for singing.

The 17 year old even lended her vocals to two of her mum’s film soundtracks including Blue Moon on 2022 film Alone Together as well as yet to be released tracks for Holmes’ latest direction project, Rare Objects.

According to the Daily Mail, Suri is reportedly applying for college to study fashion.

While a source said Suri was “applying for schools all over the place”, they also divulged that Holmes would prefer she stay close to home in New York City.

In her interview with Glamour, Holmes confessed a continued desire to protect her daughter into adulthood.

“What has been really important for me with my daughter, because she was so visible at a young age, is I really like to protect her,” she said. “I’m very grateful to be a parent, to be her parent. She’s an incredible person.”
