Suri ‘Taken Aback’ by Tom Cruise’s Eyeliner

Tom Cruise‘s glam rock look for his upcoming movie Rock of Ages didn’t exactly rock his daughter Suri‘s world – at least not initially.

“When I had the eyeliner and the painted nails, [Suri] was a little taken aback by it,” Cruise told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Monday morning. “She was like, ‘What’s happening to my dad?'”

“I joke with friends because she goes to [mom Katie Holmes‘s] sets and there’s hair and makeup and they’re very nice,” Cruise continues.

“Suri comes to my sets and she’s got to wear a hard helmet. There are explosions going off. Dad is bloody. He’s bruised.”

Cruise, 49, who plays singer Stacee Jaxx in the film, which also costars Seacrest’s girlfriend Julianne Hough, says his 6-year-old daughter’s trip to Rock of Ages‘s set went over a bit better.

“When she shows up on [that] set,” he tells Seacrest, “she really likes the singing. And here I am with black nail polish and eyeliner. She kind of takes it all in. It’s cool.”

Also musically-inclined: Cruise’s 17-year-old son, Connor, who recently deejayed at the Wango Tango concert in L.A., and has been concentrating on his music, says Tom.

“He’s so focused on his music right now — and it’s great to see,” says Cruise. “He works very hard; when he wants to do something, he’s really dedicated to it.”

She must have a private tutor. The child seems to spend a lot of her time shopping and visiting movie sets.

He is the hottest nearly 50 year old ever!

Jessica, why would you make such an awful comment about a child you don’t know? If the comment was in response to this story…what little girl wouldn’t be taken aback at the sight of their dad in makeup?

Wow Jessica that is rude. How can you say that about a 6 year old?? I am fairly sure that Suri has private tutors, or goes to a Scientology school, after all Tom and Nicole’s 2 kids did. Who is to say she didn’t go to the movie set on the weekend or during a school break?

Just popped in to see the slamming…and I was right. First post and someone calls Suri a “little snot” without even knowing her. She’s no different than any other celebs’ kids but seems to get a bad rap because of her father. Take your anger out on Tom, not on the innocent little girl.

Just shows how shallow and ignorant YOU are yourself Jessica.

You are so right Jessica, she is a spoiled child and a little snot. Everyone knows this.

Tom seems like a great father and husband. Katie’s a lucky lady.

The kid is very cute, and I think they are a cute couple. I will go to any movie Tom is in, even the Nazi movie! lol I think he is a good actor and is underated cause of the celebrity stuff.
