Tom Cruise: Suri Won't Wear Pants!

Tom Cruise: Suri Won't Wear Pants!

Valkyrie star Tom Cruise sat down last week with Entertainment Tonight in Los Angeles.

On 2-year-old daughter Suri, Tom says she is a complete “girlie girl. She won’t wear pants.”

His wife Katie Holmes even tried! Tom added, Kate finally got her in jeans the other day. We put the pants on and walk away and the pants are off and the dress is on.”

“It was an incredible experience,” Tom says of filming in Germany with director Bryan Singer. “We filmed in actual homes where the Resistance met. It’s a very inspiring story that’s timeless.”

More of this interview will air tonight, November 24th, on ET.

    Tom is a weirdo i wish we got to see all of his kids and not just his blood one.

  • danielle

    Well, I see Tom has been reading all the criticism about the dresses and now has stepped in to do some PR manipulation about it.

  • bejeebus

    whatever, tommy girl. ever heard of tights? oh nevermind…of course you have.

  • to danielle

    she’s two years old. i have a two year old niece that also will not, repeat not , wear pants. she takes them off. all she will wear are dresses and they have to be either pink or purple. she won’t wear any other colors.

  • Not impressed by JA

    Tom is stupid and think we are gullibale !

    He has just acknowledged that Suri, 2 years has no discipline whatsoever. Her parents can’t have the last word at an age where children don’t even perceive their own gender and what it really means !

    Wait for another 4 years…that’s the age when Drew Barrymore drank her first glass of beer. Before 12 , she was in a program for drunks.

    That little girl will be f*cked long before her age counts the double diggits !

    Be Quiet Trolls
    My daughter did the same thing for a long time.
    They like dresses that spin.
    Now she wears jeans or anything else she feels like.
    Quite normal.

    love you Tom Cruise.

  • oinc!

    This girl is not a child. It’s a product, a subprime. Tom Cruise is the new decadent Michael Jackson.

    coming from BRITNEY all i can say is
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

    #6- “Not impressed by JA”—- your last comment was disgusting and unnecessary.

    Tom and Katie need to understand that she is only 2 years old and in those “terrible twos”. Now is not the time to let her get her way. If she needs to wear pants or stockings…….then, they need to be the parent and eventually she will wear them. I have a 4 year old granddaughter and she did the same thing when we was two. Her mom and dad did not make a big thing of it and if she needed to wear it- they put it back on. After awhile…..she just forgot about “not liking things on her legs”. If you give in to every bratting thing a kid does….eventually he or she will have you all “trained” and wrapped around your finger! LOL

    DITTO that , glad we both agree on something

  • faith

    excuses excuses. I guess she’s allowed to eat candies instead of a chicken sandwich because she makes the rules.

  • nancy

    If Tom & Katie had dressed her in pants in the first place, she would be used to wearing them and not put up a fuss!!!

  • nancy

    What really bothers me is the fact that Tom thinks he is smarter than all of us! He thinks we will buy a story about how it’s not their fault that Suri will not wear pants!

  • http://anythinghollywood.com Henrietta

    How could you talk like this about a toddler. Suri is a little cutie pie and please show some respect for children

  • Mom Of Three

    So who’s the parent here?

    A child does NOT know what’s best for them! Just because Suri is a “girlie girl” and doesn’t care for pants, that’s no excuse for Tom and Katie to allow her to get away with it when the weather is cold.

    That’s why children have parents. To make the right decisions for them when they’d don’t know enough to make a good decision themselves.

    And please don’t give me that it’s a harmless situation. Allowing a child to run around in a summer dress with nothing on her legs in COLD NEW YORK WEATHER is a poor decision to be blamed on Suri’s incapable and idiotic parents.

    Tom is just trying to make excuses for his and Katie’s stupidity based on all the negative comments on the net. I’m sure his PR people troll the net and read all these things. God…..he and his wife are so incredibly ANNOYING. I wish they’d both just go away!

    —————————————————————-

    No one is talking negatively about Suri! We’re all talking about what idiots her parents are for letting her make decisions she is clearly not capable of making. No 2 year old is!! She’s just a baby. If she ends up screwed up, it’ll be because of Cruise and Holmes!!!!!!!!!!

    Nice try but a giant FAIL.

  • haha!

    tom is a blithering idiot married to a 60 year doormat. so it sounds like suri won’t get poopy diapers changed either.

  • To #20 Henrietta

    ———————————————————

    No one is being disrespectful to Suri!!

    People are only saying that it’s her parents fault if Suri is dressed improperly or grows up to be screwed up….and they are right!

    Suri is 2. She doesn’t know better. Her parents should be the ones in control, but clearly they are NOT. They’re pathetic.

    Nice try Henrietta, but EPIC FAIL

  • doc

    i agree. they’re so irresponsible.

  • tom

    I have a niece who wants to wear dresses all the time too. BUT the difference is that her parents know when to be parents. She must wear pants when it is cold out or when the weather permits, a dress with leggings.

    What will Tom and Katie do when Suri demands candy for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Will they whine, “But she won’t eat regular food. She just won’t.” –It’s called being a parent and it seems Katie doesn’t know how to be one.

  • defap

    My guess that Suri likes dresses, hates pants is correct. Sick media don’t like Tom, but we love Tom and his family.

  • iLOveSuri

    Why some people are so bothered by other people’s negative comments? Let them say anything they want to say. After all these are the place for people to give any comments they want. Jared himself doesn’t care so why must you care.

    If you don’t like reading negative comments here about celebs then don’t visit these kind of gossip sites, don’t read other people comments just post your own comments and get a life!

  • jessie

    This just further shows me that TC and KH are NOT GOOD PARENTS.

    If their daughter wanted to eat only candy instead of good food, would they allow it? Probably!! If she wanted to run around with a dirty diaper on her head would that be OK too? Probably

    How is that any different than letter her wear summer dresses in cold weather? It’s not.

    Face it…..they are horrible parents who do not know how to actually parent but instead let they baby do what she pleases. Not only is that not intelligent, it’s not healthy.

    START BEING PARENTS TOM AND KATIE.

  • REALITY CHECK

    Yes, Tom, that behaviour is normal in many little girls.

    However, while it is cute in the South or in Southern California, it’s utter nonsense on the East Coast during the Winter.

    Take the dresses away until Spring, end of story.

  • To defap

    Sick media don’t like Tom, but we love Tom and his family.
    +++++++++++++++++

    This has nothing to do with the media. This has to do with Cruise being too stupid of a person to know what is best for his daughter. Can’t expect much from that brain dead idiot he married, but I would think, with 2 other kids, Cruise would know better. Suri is an innocent bystander in all of this. It’s not her fault she has morons for parents.

    The only people who “love” Tom and Katie are you and the other 20 names you use to post here. Sorry, but we’re still not convinced.

  • anon

    he’s so DAMN PREDICTABLE, just knew it won’t be long befre he goes public with some lame ass explanation for his/her lack of parenting skills, thank God, gone are those days d public suck on celebs asses. not buying it LITTLE MAN.

  • Mr Orange

    i’m throwing in the towel! these two are so stupid. child protection services needs to come get suri.

  • RIGHT ON REALITY CHECK!!!!

    “However, while it is cute in the South or in Southern California, it’s utter nonsense on the East Coast during the Winter.”

    BRAVO REALITY CHECK!! Thanks for saying what I was thinking!!!!!

    Any parent worth their salt would know this and dress their child properly for the weather. If Tom thinks he’s giving a good excuse, he’s very wrong. Those comments only serve to make his seem like a poor parent who allows a 2 year old to control a situation she is too young to control. He and his wife are bad parents and that’s all there is to it.

  • Lauren

    Whatsa matter Tom, never heard that you can say NO to a child?

    EXCUSES, EXCUSES, EXCUSES……if your daughter takes her little pants off, PUT THEM BACK ON and explain that dresses are no a good idea in cold weather!

    Its called PARENTING…..try it sometime.

  • what an idiot dad!

    Let me take a wild guess, she doesn’t like socks either, eh Tom?

  • finally!

    suri’s bodygaurd (conner’s bio-dad) has had it with katie’s poor mothering. this morning he picked up suri and took her to the authorities.

  • ivy

    let’s see, if tom had a son who wouldn’t wear pants would be wearing dress too?

  • nancy

    To #28, That’s funny!!!!

  • someone who knows

    Scientologists believe that one does not tell a child what to do as they are fully formed souls in a child’s body. Not smart, but that’s what they believe and what L. Ron Hubbard teaches.

    This is why social services is always on top of Scientology parents. It’s simple really…..they don’t parent. They let a child do whatever they please no matter how dangerous.

    It’s sick and it’s sad and unfortunately, I know this for a fact since I was raised in the Co$ and barely got out alive.

    POOR, POOR SURI. She has two twits for parents!

  • nancy

    Hey #37, you are funny too!!!

  • kelly

    it’s simple.

    tomkat is LAZY!

    won’t do anything until they have to.

  • suri’s in charge

    Let’s hope this strong woman likes to brush her teeth.

  • Sssttt

    Whenever I’ve seen her photographed she is usually being held, and has a blanket around her legs. Why pick them apart so harshly?
    So what if the child prefers dresses. Two years old can be VERY opinionated… she looks healthy and happy! At least her parents are pretty much always with her.

  • bejeebus

    big titty kim,
    you’re post is so wrong but so funny! priceless actually, i may have to quote you! thanks for the laughs!

  • anonymous.

    Tom is desperately trying to plug his lame Valkyrie movie and the Suri sightings all probably all he has, he knows public interest in him personally is nil, people think he is weird. (if you ask anybody if they are a Tom Cruise fan…go ahead try it…they often say “I used to be, he’s weirdo now”. Has aAnybody else seen the ads for this movie TV???? My husband and I think it is so odd to have Tom and the director talk about the movie in the actual TV ads, strange, like they know they need to convince the public it’s a good movie, very odd, never seen that befoe, he must be getting desperate and knows his box office clout is pretty much gone.

  • cassie

    in reality it doesn’t matter what any of us say. katie and tom are suri’s parents. and they will raise that little girl as they choose. all the advice in the world is just that; advice and unless taken it’s useless.

  • Cutiepie

    When I was little I never wore pants either. I would always wear dresses. I hated jeans, they were uncomfortable and scratchy on my legs.

  • #46 is si right!

    thought it was bizaar too. sure didn’t make me want to see the movie–even free on cable. it looks awful!

  • Marcia

    It’s true those ads for his new movie where Tom and some other dude talk in the middle of the ad is totally wierd. It’s like they’e being interviewed but what they’re doing is trying to talk people into seeing the movie knowing the preview is not enough and with Tom’s cucko image they need help.. Wow, Tom’s image must be in a huge need of a boost that he has to pitch his own movie in an movie ad??? Reeks of desperation. I can’t imagine any other movie star doing this, I’ve never seen that before, thought it was strange.
