"What has been really important for me with my daughter, because she was so visible at a young age, is I really like to protect her," the 44-year-old spilled.

"I hope she always does something on my films. I always ask her,” Holmes continued, referring to her teenage daughter's cover of “Blue Moon" that was featured in her 2022 movie Alone Together as well as another song included in Holmes’ 2023 film Rare Objects.

"But both of those experiences came out of the same sense of what I love about our industry, which is, you have these projects and you become a family with people. And it’s this safe, beautiful, creative space. So it comes out of love for me to include someone who I love dearly," she explained.

Holmes had Suri with then-husband Tom Cruise in 2006, but the pair divorced in 2012 after six years of marriage. Since then, the famous parents have kept their 16-year-old’s life private, with Holmes only occasioning giving sneak peeks into her life as a mom over the years.

In 2014, she told Glamour, "I didn’t know how much love I had in me. It’s overwhelming," while adding, "Every day I discover more about this spectacular human being I get to be the mother of."
