12 Things Suri Cruise Will Never Be Able To Do Because Of Her Dad Tom Cruise
When Suri Cruise was born in 2006, Hollywood found its newfound obsession with star kids. She was followed wherever she went with her parents, from the zoo to school. Tom Cruise and his ex-wife Katie Holmes were married back then and played doting parents to little Suri. But now, that Tom and Katie have a bitter divorce behind them, Suri’s life has also undergone a tremendous change. She spends most of her time with her mom Katie and almost never gets to see her dad. It was recently revealed that Suri has not met her dad in more than six months. Tom loves Suri, but the fact that he has not seen his youngest child in months does not help out his fatherly cred. Suri is now 11, but does not enjoy a normal relationship with her dad. Here are the things which Suri can’t do with her dad.
1No A-lister status
Now that Suri and her dad are so apart, Suri does not enjoy her earlier fame. As she is not in great terms with her dad, Tom’s fans are not really interested in her. Also, she is not given a VIP treatment anymore, as her mom Katie is not exactly an A-lister.
2Not getting answers
Tom and Katie’s divorce happened over religious beliefs. Tom was way too involved with Scientology and Katie was not okay with it. Chances are Scientology questions are off limits for Suri. She might be curious about the cult or its practices but might not be getting any answers from her mom.
3No hanging out with dad
Every kid, even star kids get to hang out with both their parents, even after their divorce. Take Brangelina’s kids for instance. Even after a messy split, their six children live with their mom Angelina Jolie and yet get to see Brad Pitt from time to time. But Suri doesn’t get to hang out with her dad at all. In fact, she doesn’t even get to visit him casually.
In the lives of children of divorces, co-parenting is an absolute must. Even if a child’s parents are apart, they must co-operate to give the child a normal childhood. Several famous exes like Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, co-parent their kids. But Suri has no such luck. She is just 11 and obviously needs both her parents. But since Tom and Katie can’t see eye-to-eye, co-parenting is not an option.
5Not a superstar’s life
Suri’s mom Katie has admitted that she still uses public transport, but that can never be the case for Tom Cruise. Since Katie is not a big star, Suri too is not treated like a super famous star kid. Brangelina’s kids for example only travel by private transport, including private jets. But Suri Cruise has had to get used to the commoner’s life.
6No designer wardrobe
Being on difficult terms with her father has cost Suri Cruise a lot of things. As a kid, when her parents were together, Suri was seen in the most expensive of couture clothes. But now, she dresses just like any other 11-year-old. It makes sense that she does not really have access to custom-made designer clothing anymore.
Katie Holmes seems to be determined to give Suri a normal childhood. She herself has no starry airs, and runs her own errands and travels by the subway. For Suri, too, she has her accustomed to a regular life, unlike that of a celebrity kid. And Suri seems to be in the habit of a non-flashy life.
8No red carpet appearances
Tom Cruise makes some of the biggest movies, whereas Katie Holmes only stars in small-budget independent productions or TV series. But Tom can never bring Suri to his red carpet appearances. Which also spells out a major miss for little Suri, as she can’t rub shoulders with the stars, or get to see her dad’s movies at the premiere. And since, Katie has kept Suri away from the limelight, she doesn’t bring Suri to her red carpets either.
9No parent teacher conferences
Suri Cruise also does not get to bring both her parents to her school’s parents teacher meets. Since, Tom is super busy, and Suri lives with Katie, it is obvious that her mom is the one who goes to meet her teachers, and not her superstar dad.
Star kids usually have a jet-setting lifestyle. They not only get to travel the world, but they get to vacation in the most exotic places with their parents. But since, Suri’s parents are not on good terms, and Suri does not share Tom’s lifestyle, Suri does not get to travel with her parents as much.
Chances are little Suri gets asked about her famous dad a lot, but since she never sees him, it puts her in a strange spot. Tom loves Suri, and despite reports if a reconciliation, he has not met her, or made nice with Katie Holmes.
12A forever torn family?
Since, Katie and Tom are so distant, and are not even on speaking terms, the chances of them resuming their relationship, or even their friendship are slim. Tom is seeing other women, and Katie is dating actor Jamie Foxx, and the two have obviously moved on with their life. And since,they show no signs of a reunion, Suri might never have her whole family together again. Which means no Christmas dinners with both her parents, or even family reunions.
