CONNOR CRUISE DEBUTS IN THEATERS TODAY IN FILM SEVEN POUNDS
13-year-old Connor Cruise will make his film debut today in movie “Seven Pounds.” Although Connor plays a small part in the film- he plays a younger version of Ben Thomas, actor Will Smith’s character-Connor’s dad, actor Tom Cruise, says that he is proud of his son all the same.
“Who knows what he’s going to do?” Cruise said. “He’s grown up on (acting). I’ve always had my kids there, in hair and makeup, just always around the sets. They’ve worked on sets.”
Tom admits that the audition for “Seven Pounds” wasn’t only intimidating for his son but for him as well. During the audition, Tom says that he anxiously awaited Connor outside of the auditioning room, and wondered “How’s he doing? What’s going on in there? What’s happening?’”
Connor is one of two children from Cruise’s marriage to Nicole Kidman. Cruise also has a daughter, Suri, with his wife, Katie Holmes. On Dec. 25, Tom Cruise’s movie “Valkyrie” hits the theaters.
