Tom Cruise Is Caught up With This Major Project as Estranged Daughter Suri Turns 18

Tom Cruise likely didn’t pay his daughter, Suri, a visit on her 18th birthday despite speculation that her coming of age could end their reported estrangement.

The actor, who has not been seen publicly with his daughter since 2012, is currently in London filming Mission: Impossible 8 which is slated for a 2025 release. Meanwhile, Suri was spotted hanging with friends on the rainy streets of New York City two days before her April 18 birthday so we’re assuming there was no father-daughter reunion.

In photos obtained by the Daily Mail, the Hollywood icon, 61, was seen sitting inside the cockpit of his HondaJet, successfully landing it in stormy London, where he is filming the eighth installment of the hit action movie franchise.

Cruise famously learned to fly a fighter jet for his role in Top Gun and has had his pilot’s license since 1994. The actor owns several aircrafts and is authorized to pilot helicopters, fighter jets, private planes and even commercial flights.

Cruise has been shooting in the heart of Westminster for the movie that will be a follow-up to 2023’s Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One. The film was initially scheduled for a summer 2024 release but production was postponed due to last year’s Hollywood Writers’ Strike. The eighth Mission: Impossble film will also see the return of stars Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff and Vanessa Kirby.

As Suri celebrated her 18th birthday, and was even seen caring what appeared to be a gift bag from a friend, speculation mounted about whether her dad would reach out for the occasion. It is widely reported that Cruise is not in contact with his youngest daughter, whom he shares with ex-wife Katie Holmes.

Holmes filed for divorce from Cruise in 2012, in a filing that reportedly blindsided the Eyes Wide Shut actor. Reports at the time, and since, claimed that Holmes ended the marriage to escape from Cruise’s controversial involvement in the Church of Scientology.
