Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise have things to do and people to see. The mother and daughter were seen at Los Angeles International Airport on Monday night, right before they left for a trip to an unknown place. Not only do the 44-year-old “Dawson’s Creek” star and her 17-year-old mini-me look a lot alike, but they also wore the same clothes on the rare trip.
Holmes wore a dark gray jacket over a white T-shirt, black pants, Adidas sneakers, and an orange baseball cap. The actor finished off her look with a brown purse, but she didn’t wear any jewelry or makeup. Cruise wore a light gray zip-up hoodie, white joggers, black shoes, and a canvas tote bag slung over her shoulder, just like her mother.

In an interview earlier this month that was unusually personal, Holmes talked about how she wants to keep her child safe. “Because my daughter was so famous at such a young age, I really like to protect her,” she told Glamour.
The “Batman Begins” actress went on to say that Cruise was “an incredible person” and that she was “grateful” to be her daughter’s mother. Given that her split from Suri’s father, Tom Cruise, was in the news and said to be hard, Holmes is likely to be very protective of her only child.
A source told Page Six last month that Tom, who is a dedicated Scientologist, is not involved in the life of his youngest child and hasn’t seen her in a long time.
During a deposition for his defamation case against Bauer Media in 2012, which was finally settled, the “Top Gun” actor was asked if his ex-wife left them “in part to protect Suri from Scientology.” At the time, he said, “That was one of the assertions, yes.”
After Holmes left him, the 60-year-old star stopped being close to Suri. Leah Remini, a former Scientologist, says that’s because the “First Daughter” star is a “suppressive person” who is seen as a “enemy” by members of the controversial group.
