As Suri Cruise Proves, You Don't Really Exist Until You're in <em>Vanity Fair</em> / Jossip
As Suri Cruise Proves, You Don't Really Exist Until You're in Vanity Fair
— Wed, Sep 6, 2006 —

Determined not to be outdone by Mollygood, Katie Couric used her platform as the new anchor of CBS Eyewitness News to introduce the world to the elusive Suri Cruise.

In Vanity Fair magazine, the first photos of little Suri (which Graydon Carter went to great lengths to protect), "prove" that the child exists. Well, nobody really exists until they're in VF anyways. So Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes sat down with Jane Sarkin (what, no Evgenia Peretz?) to talk about their adopted Asian daughter.

"She has Kate's lips and eyes," Tom says of the baby. "I think she looks like Kate." Holmes counters, "I think she has Tom's eyes. I think she looks like Tom."

And in six years, Vanity Fair will have the story about why Suri has Lucy Liu's eyes.

Guys, it's enough already with the baby. She's got typical baby eyes (I work in Pediatrics) and she's beautiful. I got it when I read about Katie being upset with the public making fun of her baby and her family. Time to lay off this bait and jab stuff. It's really not funny anymore.

I can't help it...she doesn't look real! Maybe it's the hair, maybe it's the eyes. She looks like a cross between Elvis and L. Ron Hubbard. Not really worth the wait!

Sorry but that kid looks like she's wearing a wig. And while I'll be the first to admit she's really cute, she does look a lot older than a kid that age should look, which is not normal.

Gorgeous kid, but does anyone else see the light brown hair peeking out from beneath the black "hair?" It makes it look like a wig that slipped back.

Plus, I've known a lot of babies. This kid looks closer to 8 or 10 months old than 4 months.

I thought that caucasian babies usually start out with lighter hair that darkens as the child gets older. How is it that this baby's hair starts out basically jet black?... there is nowhere to go from here.

I believe in leaving them alone like many people do. But when they keep going out of their way to overdo proving this relationship and baby are real - they get what they deserve.

you guys are weird. suri looks like a normal baby her age. my daughter had thick black hair when she was born. she was also a big baby. so what, anyway? people will always have something to say. if there was something wrong with her, you'd have something to say. you didn't see her for four and a half months, you had something to say. now you see her, you have something to say. i mean, GET A LIFE, people!!!! suri's beautiful! you guys think she looks asian because of her eyes, but her eyes are blue.....the next thing i KNOW i'll hear is that she's the geisha in Arthur Golden's famous FICTION. what's wrong with you people?

Yea Right?! If that baby is Suri Cruise, I'm Santa Cruz....that hair looks like an "esqued" wig (note hairline)....and the child looks mature for just being a few months.

In their efforts to salvage Tom's image and his unpredicatable movie career....Tom's camp "scambled" to fix things in any way possible. Let's see, hum.....feed the sharks succulent "bait"......hurry before things turn into a media "feeding" frenzy......ugh...grab that kid over there...yea, put a wig on it.....Aisan decent is a beautiful thing .....grab the camera....set go....okay...that'll do! I think they'll lay off us for awhile now.....Hey Katie, you can give the baby back to Melinda & Carl now...Oh, thank them for lending him/her for the photo shoot. I'll be glad to donate to their favorite charity. Ciao

that baby is damned big for a three-month old. i've seen big babies but big babies still look like babies, not close-to-a-year-olds. as for the asian thing, i see it, but my contention is they hired bjork to have another kid on the sly for them. suri looks more like a bjork baby than her own kid isadora does.

I'm surprised some comments are about the black hair, sometimes Caucasian babies do have that when they're born. My sister is one of them. She was born with black hair, it fell out and she was a blonde. Strange, but true! She's a pretty baby. Even if you think there's something wrong with her parents, the jokes about the baby truly aren't funny anymore.

My son's hair was jet black until he was about 2 or 3 months old... then one day we woke up and it was blonde... so stop with the hair thing... cacuasian babies can have black hair...

Not to mention that she will grow into her face... and her eyes... my sons eyes looked pretty Asian too... but again... he is as cacuasian as they can get...
So, unless you have a baby of your own, I dont think you guys should be commenting...

I feel sick after reading the negative comments about baby Suri. What is wrong with people today! Such ugly and paranoid comments. Such anger & hate. Can't we be happy for people anymore? We are all brothers and sisters under one father. We aren't going to always like each other, but for God's sake, can't we try to love each other and wish each other well. Celebrities are no less deserving of fairness. Shame on you and shame on me if I too look for imagined faults within others. . And worse, find joy in others faults.

That's not Tom's kid! A )He is GAY B) He is supposedly sterile (reason he adopted)-but didn't want us to find out C) He is using this asian child as a way to get into the headlines (just in time his movie). Won't it be great when 'Suri' grows up & writes a tell-all book about how her daddy was so desperate to convince the gullible world that he is a real man, straight & can produce children! He must really be ashamed of his gayness, yet with Queer Eye etc this would be the ideal time for him to be a role model for his people (gay) rather than desperately hide in the closet! Everyone knows that TCLTC 4 ever! He is not fooling anyone anymore!

I'm an Asian. I consider Asian???s are also pretty people but Caucasians seem to be ruling though. Yes, the baby looks a little Asian; you've got to understand that Caucas Mountain is in central Asia. People of that area who I doubt have had blonde hairs. Authentic Aryans are Asians as well; not so called Caucasians. Jesus Christ was sure not blonde at that time. By the way, Jesus is also is an Asian. However, we see now that every human being which doesn???t look like Caucasians are not so pretty like they do. It happens, I guess, during an iron age.

WTF says:

I'm of northern european heritage, and my son's eyes look a lot like Suri's. My husband is also northern european. Neither of us have Asian heritage, yet our baby's eyes look like that too. Babies have chubby little faces, and those fat deposits can be anywhere, including the eyelids - which may be the reason Suri and my son have the Asian look to them.

As for black hair, Suri wouldn't be the first. If lighter hair can be seen "beneath" her dark hair, that's probably because it is not uncommon for babies to be born with a bunch of dark hair only to lose it and have it replaced by what will be their true color. Happened in our family more than once!

C'mon people. Yes, Scientology is creepy and yes, Tom Cruise is a dildo. But Suri is adorable and it isn't her fault that she was born to that freakshow father of hers. She's an innocent baby. Be nice. Make the comments about Tom instead ;)

They took about 3 months to find a baby that would "work" and pass as theirs, and then revealed it - its a big hoax, a big scheme -- Tom Cruise is as gay as they come, scared to admit it - Katie is being paid and held captive - it is a messy situation. I know a lot about what is going on - as my relative is related to Katie's close friend. Don''t be so understanding. Nothing surprises me anymore.

I like how Tom is taking up over 2/3 of the picture and holding Suri to himself...away from Katie. There's no denying that Katie is the real mother though, look at the nose of that baby! The eyes sort of look like Tom's, but they also look like Katie's ex Chris Klein's too. Tom should just let Katie hold her own damn baby and go back to the mothership closet he was hatched from.

anisca says:

# 11 i'm not totally agree with you for her to have bleu eyes both parent shouls have bleu eyes because Eye color is a physical trait that is genetically determinedIn basic terms, eye color is determined by the amount of a pigment called melanin that is in the iris of the eye. Brown eyes have lots of pigment, blue eyes very little. The amount of pigment is determined by a number of genes controlling pigment production. Generally speaking, brown is dominant, meaning that if one parent has brown eyes and the other has blue eyes, the baby will most likely have brown eyes.
