Tom Cruise’s Daughter Wants to Act
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s teenage daughter, Isabella, can’t wait to follow her parents (and little brother) into showbiz.
Look out Rumer Willis – it seems you have some new female celeb-spawn competition! Katie Holmes told friends this week that there will soon be another actor in the Cruise family — Tom’s teenage daughter, Isabella.
“Katie is excited for Bella [Tom’s adopted daughter with Nicole Kidman],” an insider tells BettyConfidential. “She is being home-schooled and graduates from high school in a few weeks. Katie says she is very talented and loves to sing and dance.”
Seventeen-year-old Isabella’s little brother, Connor, 15, has already launched his acting career, playing a young Will Smith in the movie Seven Pounds, and he recently finished filming the remake of the 1984 action flick Red Dawn (which is due out at the end of the year).
While Connor is following in his action hero dad’s footsteps, Isabella seems to be taking after her mom, Nicole (who most recently starred in the big screen adaptation of the musical Nine), and is looking at combining her love of acting and singing. “A musical and acting career is just around the corner for her,” the insider says. “She definitely has the skills for it and Tom and Katie are very supportive of her choices. They will enroll her in classes and workshops, whatever she wants to do when she graduates.”
Tom has said in the past that he wouldn’t push his kids into showbiz, but he confessed that he was proud when he took Connor to his first audition.
“I will never put pressure on him,” Tom said of his only son last year. “Who knows what he’s going to do? But driving him to the audition for his first film role was a great father-son moment.”
