Katie Holmes has been in the public’s eye for several years now as an amazing and talented actress. So, she knows exactly what being in the spotlight can do to people who may not be able to handle it perfectly, especially children. The actress is not only a gorgeous actress, she is also an attentive mom, who will do anything to give her 14-year-old daughter, Suri the best life possible. Oftentimes, as a celebrity, keeping your kids away from the prying eyes of the public may be the best option for you.
Not only do you get to reduce drastically how the media speaks about your child, you also help them lead a normal and basic life, despite being related to a popular figure.
In the industry today, several kids have had their teenage years truncated because the media is always trying to shape them into a different version of themselves. Several young and talented stars have also had this experience, and few of them overcome the stress that comes with being in the public’s eye.
Holmes’ daughter, Suri is not only in the public’s eye because of her mother, she is also the daughter of one of the most popular actors in Hollywood, Tom Cruise.
Now, we can see why Holmes taught it best to keep her daughter away from all that fame.
Holmes disclosed that although she had decided to keep her daughter away from the media, it was not easy to do so. This is because there was no way she could keep Suri at home all day, as that would be caging her.
The actress had to come up with a few tricks to make sure that what she had planned stayed Th e same way. One of the things she had to do, was find perfect times to bring Suri out of the house. She mentioned that when Suri was still very little, paparazzis followed her a lot and it was becoming a problem. To solve this, she would dress Suri up around 6 am and go out to find parks where she can play and have a good time.
Holmes was asked why she decided that New York City was the best place to raise her child after her divorce from Tom Cruise in 2012, and her answer was simple. She disclosed that NYC had a lot of excitement and activities to engage in both day and night, and she thought that was the perfect place to raise her baby.
“Yes it’s a little too exposed at times, and we work hard to maneuver and navigate. But what I love about New York is that for me and my child, this is our vibe.” Holmes said.
