Katie Holmes gives rare interview about 16-year-old daughter Suri Cruise

Katie Holmes gives rare interview about 16-year-old daughter Suri Cruise

Katie Holmes has started working with her daughter on film projects

After years of being plagued by paparazzi Katie Holmes decided to keep her daughter, Suri Cruise, out of the spotlight.

But now that her daughter is 16 and starting to come into her own, Katie is slowly starting to speak about Suri in interviews again - and even enlisting her help in her film projects.

The Dawson's Creek star welcomed Suri with Tom Cruise back in 2006, but the couple parted ways just six years later.

Speaking about how protective she feels over her daughter, Katie told Glamour: "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.

"I'm very grateful to be a parent, to be her parent. She's an incredible person."

Katie also spoke about how Suri has slowly started getting involved in her mum's work.

For example, in the 2022 film Alone Together, which Katie wrote, directed and starred in, she asked her daughter to sing a cover of the song 'Blue Moon' for the opening credits.

Next, she'll sing for Katie's upcoming movie Rare Objects.

"I hope she always does something on my films. I always ask her," Katie shared.

Katie has even roped Suri into a few of her film projects.

She explained that asking Suri to sing in her films 'came out of the same sense of what [she loves] about the industry' - the fact that the people you work with on-set become a family, and that it can be a 'safe, beautiful, creative space'.

"So it comes out of love for me to include someone who I love dearly," she continued.

"I like to have that kind of feeling. It was very meaningful to me to have her there, because she's my heart."

Last month, Katie also briefly mentioned her teen daughter in an interview with Variety, revealing that she had finally shown Suri Dawson's Creek.

"She has seen Dawson's Creek, and I think it's probably weird since she's a teenager," Katie said at the time.

"I'm not like, 'You need to watch Mommy's work'. But during the pandemic, we had a good laugh about it."

She noted that it was pretty 'wild' to have a daughter who was 'almost the same age' as she was when she started her acting career.

Katie made her first film debut in 1997, when she was 19 years old, in The Ice Storm.

Within a year, she had landed the role of Joey Potter on Dawson's Creek.
