Suri Cruise: Look! I'm My Mother's Doppelganger!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Suri Cruise hung out with a few loved ones over the weekend.

No, the group did not include her famous father.

Amidst ongoing questions of when the heck Tom Cruise last saw his daughter, the 10-year old got some quality time in with two of her nephews on Sunday.

Katie Holmes is Beautiful

And Katie Holmes was on hand to document the experience.

The 38-year-old actress captioned a sweet photo of the trio on a road overlooking Los Angeles.

“Love these sweethearts who inspire me with all of their accomplishments and beautiful hearts and for bringing so much light to all of our lives!”

As you can see in the image below, Suri is growing up fast...

... and looks exactly like her gorgeous mom! It's almost eerie.

Suri Cruise and Nephews

After many years spent shielding Suri from the spotlight, Holmes has been far more open of late with pictures of her only child.

Back in September, the former Dawson's Creek star (yes, we know she's appeared in a whole lot since then. But she'll always be Joey to us) shared a precious picture of herself and Suri.

It was the first glimpse of mother and daughter together in a very long time, although lately, she's shared more and more about Suri.

"Motherhood is the greatest gift.  When I became a mother, my life completely changed," Holmes said in a rare 2014 interview.

As recently as that, it was unusual for her to even speak of Suri.

Not that we're criticizing her. The star deserves all the credit in the world for raising her child away from the pressures of fame and Hollywood.

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise

She was a popular actress in her own right, but an endless amount of controversy swirled around Holmes ever since she started dating Tom Cruise.

That was 2005, incredible as it seems.

Soon after, the couple got married.

Then, they welcomed Suri.

Then, they got divorced.

Questions remained over whether the two were ever in love and whether Suri would be raised a Scientologist like her famous father.

It would have been easy to see the child going down the sort of dark and dangerous path that often befalls children of major celebrities.

Suri Cruise Snuggles Katie Holmes

But Holmes has done an amazing job with her.

According to People, Suri has also been a constant visitor on the set of The Kennedys: After Camelot, where her mother is working.

Holmes plays the iconic former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and also directed the third episode of the TV miniseries.

“Katie actually made her a chair that said ‘Director,’” Jon Cassar, who directs the show, told the publication of Holmes’ efforts to make a special space for Suri on set.

How did Cassar contribute to that effort?

“I taught her how to skip rocks," he says.
