Older sister Isabella steps in as Suri shows who’s really the boss in the Cruise family.
Both her parents have described her as “determined” and “strong-willed”, and as our photographs show, little Suri Cruise certainly has a mind of her own.
In a scene familiar to mothers around the world, four-year-old Suri threw a whopper of a tantrum on an outing with her mum Katie Holmes and sister Isabella in Toronto last week, digging her heels in, stamping her feet and pulling away from Katie.
It was big sis Isabella who finally calmed down little Suri on the girls’ shopping trip, offering the pouting preschooler her favourite security blanket, while an embarrassed Katie, 31, watched on.
The daughter of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, Isabella has in recent years grown much closer to stepmum Katie, who is in Canada filming the miniseries The Kennedys.
The 17-year-old receives scant media attention compared to her baby sister, who is fast developing a reputation for getting what she wants when she wants it – and dropping her famous bottom lip when she doesn’t.
