Tom Cruise recently came forward to insist that he is in regular contact with daughter Suri while he is in London and she is with her mother Katie Holmes in New York.
So it stands to reason that Suri might have been chatting to her father as she was pictured talking on Katie's mobile phone while the duo left a New York restaurant on Wednesday.
While it is unclear who exactly was on the other line, the six-year-old cut an excitable figure as she enjoyed her telephone conversation.

Suri, who looked cute in an all-pink outfit, smiled and did some energetic dance moves as she held the mobile device up to her ear.
The pint-sized brunette went for a girly top on the day out in a bright ruffled top and skater skirt,
along with red patent ballet pumps.
Katie put comfort over style in a knitted poncho, which she teamed with
white skinny jeans and tan leather ankle boots.

is something that’s been going on her whole life – when Tom is shooting
a film out of the country, he has to rely on the telephone.’
screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, who has worked on four films with
Cruise, insists Cruise is every inch the doting father and they do
indeed make the most of using the telephone to keep in touch.
Prima Ballerina: The youngster even did some energetic dance moves during the conversation
Let me entertain you: The six-year-old happily hopped from one foot to the other as she chatted into Katie's mobile phone
said: ‘I can tell you that I haven’t had a meeting with Tom that was
not interrupted by a phone call with his daughter. His heart is broken.
He misses his little girl and works very hard at parenting.’
McQuarrie added: ‘His hands have been tied.’
The star is currently in London where he is filming action movie All You Need Is Kill.
with back to back film shooting following his ex-wife Katie’s decision
to divorce him in June, Cruise has been unable to spend as much time
with Suri as he would like to.
Suri speaking: The youngster seemed happy to be chatting with whoever was on the other end of the line
They were last spotted together on August 5 as Cruise took the six-year-old on an exciting trip to Disney World.
However McQuarrie states that this is perfectly normal when you’re a movie star like Cruise.
said: ‘There’s a commitment [to making movies] that is huge while all
