It’s not uncommon for celebrities to use body doubles when they really want to avoid media attention but a new set of pictures seems to confirm that even little Suri Cruise has one.Indeed, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ almost 7-year-old daughter has a lookalike to be paraded for the paparazzi when her mother and father are actually someplace else with her.
At least, that’s what photos over at TMZ seem to imply.
“Exhibit A – Suri getting out of an SUV in NYC this weekend wearing a beanie, blue bubble jacket, leggings and brown Uggs. Exhibit B – Another little girl who sorta looks like Suri getting out of the exact same SUV wearing an IDENTICAL OUTFIT... with a different colored beanie,” TMZ writes.
“So what does it all mean??? Is Suri trying to dupe the media? Is the other girl in on some sort of diabolical plot? Or... are they just friends who like to wear the same clothes?” the same media outlet asks.
It’s just a rhetorical question though: because one of the girls (who is not Suri) is making sure she’s hiding her face the moment she steps out of the car, that can’t but mean that she’s acting like a body double for Suri.
Then again, considering the way in which her parents shower her with the most ridiculous and the most ridiculously expensive gifts (at least according to reports), it probably wouldn’t be that much of a surprise that they also went to the trouble of hiring a body double for her to keep her away from the spotlight as much as possible.
Tom and Katie were married in 2006 after a whirlwind courtship. She filed for divorce in 2012 and it became final in a matter of weeks, presumably because Tom did not want to give Katie the time or the occasion to spill the beans on his association with the Church of Scientology.
Katie has full custody of Suri.
