Tom Cruise splashes out on Suri
Los Angeles - Tom Cruise has splashed out $5 000 to rent an ice skating rink for his daughter.
The Hollywood actor and wife Katie Holmes reportedly hired out the VIP-style Igloo warm-up area at New York's Rockefeller Centre for the whole session in order for 5-year-old Suri to hone her skating skills.
A source told the New York Daily News: "Tom rented it for an entire session so no one else could use it."
The 49-year-old star - who has been promoting his latest movie Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
in New York - snubbed the venue's refreshments and catered themselves with calorific treats for his daughter.
Instead of the standard food and drink offerings from the ice skating rink - which charges $75 for an hour-and-a-half session - Tom had hot chocolate from New York restaurant Serendipity 3 and sweets from confectionery store Jacques Torres ordered in "especially for Suri".
But Tom - who also has two adopted children, Isabella, 19, and 15-year-old Connor from his marriage to Nicole Kidman - needs no assistance when it comes to purchasing presents for his family because he likes all of his gifts to be personal.
He recently explained: "We go out and get them. We go to the shops."
