Katie Holmes confirms: ‘Suri loves being a princess’

What would it be like to be Suri Cruise? Some of the perks: constantly decked out in beautiful doll clothes, sucking on barley water 24-7, never having to walk anywhere, and occasionally munching on flip-flops. What is the downside to being Suri? Xenu, Thetans, couch-jumping, et cetera. There’s one quality that could go either way, though – both Tom and Katie seem to treat Suri as a total princess.

Katie confirmed to US Weekly that not only does Suri love being around Disney princesses, Suri is convinced she is a princess. That’s probably a mix of the doll-dresses plus Suri’s fantasies of being rescued from the tower of the Church of Scientology castle. Katie also says that all of the Disney princess movies are on constant rotation in the Cruise-Holmes household, and Suri’s favorite might be Sleeping Beauty. Sleeping Beauty was my favorite when I was around five years old, but I absolutely hated Snow White. The Evil Queen really scared me.

Suri Cruise is a little princess. After a trip to Disneyland earlier this year, her parents threw her a princess-themed birthday party shortly after turning 3 on April 18.

“We had a great time [at Disney] — she loved it,” Katie Holmes told Usmagazine.com at the Independent Filmmaker Project party in NYC Sunday.

“It was her first time, and she loves the princesses,” continued Holmes. “Actually, she loves being a princess.” Suri is “so smart,” Holmes added.

Is she more of a mommy or daddy’s girl? “She’s both,” Holmes said. “Tom and I are great teammates as parents.”

In addition to dressing like royalty, the tot likes to watch her fave princesses on the big screen. “She loves Sleeping Beauty and all the Disney movies, and that’s great because I get to revisit them all again,” says Holmes.

When not watching cartoons with her daughter, what are Holmes’ favorite flicks?

“That’s a good question — there’s so many! I love Spielberg movies, I love my husband’s movies, Ang Lee’s movies,” she says. “I actually just saw State of Play, and I thought that was a really great movie, a great Russell Crowe movie. I love dramas. I love musicals. So it’s hard. I couldn’t even pick a top five!”

When date night rolls around, it’s not hard for Holmes and husband Tom Cruise to agree which movies to watch. “Luckily, we have similar tastes,” she tells Us.

Gee, first Katie says that she loves musicals, then she says she and Tom have the same tastes. Oh my God, breaking news, Tom Cruise watches Moulin Rouge all the time! It’s cute that Tom and Katie indulge Suri’s princess-love, but they might want to try to mix it up a little, just for their sanity. A lot of those Disney songs can get stuck in your head for weeks on end (“I know you/I danced with you once upon a dream…”). Maybe Finding Nemo, or The Sound of Music? Mary Poppins? Probably not yet… Suri’s not done being a princess. I wonder if Tom and Katie will take Suri to see the new Disney princess.

    A new Paris Hilton is growing…

    Somewhere, a psychology major has no idea how rich he/she will one day be trying to unravel the mental state of a full grown Suri Cruise.

  3. Lem says:

    I’m so glad to see Katie is using words and making whole sentences again. Can you see the light?

  4. teri says:

    Yes another Paris in the making.

  5. DD says:

    lol Lem. Aside from probably being a spoiled brat, she is sooo damn cute.

  6. Ameia says:

    At best Suri is average-looking. She has a pale, puffy, unhealthy complexion and lidless eyes.

  7. Bodhi says:

    I wonder what she makes of her bodyguard. I mean, I doubt she understands his role in her life, but I wonder what she thinks he is there for…

  8. Hieronymus Grexx says:

    1 out of 200 million sperm connected with an ovum inside Katie Holmes one night, after 3 minutes of sex (after 120 minutes of Tom crying) and lo and behold another snot goblin joins the fray. Where’s the princess angle?

  9. Embee says:

    This girl (Katie, not her child) makes me ill. “Suri likes us both exactly equally and I love my husband’s movies best.” It’s like she’s not even trying anymore.

  10. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    Grexx: even though I have a child, that comment made me laugh hard. Yeah, every parent thinks their kid is special, but we’re biologically wired to think that. Really the truth is more like how you put it. Snot goblin made me choke on my coffee.

    Why oh why is she always being carried about in that blanket?

    The kid is going to be seriously spoiled and entitled. I can see it now. I don’t know why I feel this way, I just think every now and then a kid should hear “no, we can’t afford that.” But I bet she never hears that her entire life.

  11. Obvious says:

    @Photo JoJo sweet. I’ll need that money one day.

  12. Wow says:

    This child is absolutely beautiful, but I agree with the others. She is going to be a mess when she gets older. She’s already got that “I’m a princess” look down in some other pictures I’ve seen of her.

    She’s a beautiful little girl though. I love how some parents think they have the only smart child alive. Lol @ Katie/Kate.

  13. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    Snot goblin – brilliant, my new favourite word combination!

    As for Kate/Katie having the same taste in movies as her ‘husband’ wouldn’t that be because she gets told what to watch?

    Poor Stepford Katie.

  14. not_a_strawman says:

    That kid is not Tom’s. Google ‘William Mapother’. He’s Tom’s cousin. The resemblance between him and Suri is shocking.

    Yea. She’s in deep. I hope her glass house is everything she ever wanted..

    “At best Suri is average-looking. She has a pale, puffy, unhealthy complexion and lidless eyes”

    This is wrong… Suri is a cute kid. There is nothing wrong with her complexion or her eyes. She obviously is naturally fair, which I think is better then being a spray tanned pageant freak.

    I think most of all, she is three years old and how wrong is it to judge the physical appearance of a small child unless there is a real issue that needs to be addressed to human services.

  16. Cinderella says:

    She is so darn cute. Even with the attitude.

  17. saffron says:

    she’s beautiful!!

  18. Prissa says:

    I love the pics yesterday on Dlisted where she was running away from Tom. Too cute!

  19. Ned says:

    Suri is adorable. She’s got so much personality.

    I am not sure how being born white has turned into a bad thing, but bashing the skin of a little girl is wrong.

    Especially when this one is so cute.

  20. I Choose Me says:

    “The Evil Queen really scared me.” Huh, I thought Maleficent was awesome, specially when she turned into a dragon.

    Why does Katie always seem to be exclaimaing?

  21. becca says:

    Ned: Yeah, Suri may have personality, but you know has more?

    Matilda Ledger. *Nod Nod*. And I believe she’s definitely being brought up as a normal kid.

  22. Kat says:

    I’m sure TC enjoys being a princess more.

  23. Orangejulius says:

    She is going to be the most horrendous brat.

    Hi there, I found your blog via Google while searching for first aid for a heart attack. Interesting post.
