Don't want to push children into acting: Tom Cruise

Los Angeles, Apr 12, 2013 (PTI)

Tom Cruise is one of the biggest movie stars in the world, but he is not so sure if he wants his kids to follow him into show business.

At the premiere of his new science fiction thriller "Oblivion", Cruise was asked if he would let his six-year-old daughter Suri, with ex-wife Katie Holmes, get into acting, reported E! Online.

The 50-year-old said any of his kids — including the two he adopted with then-wife Nicole Kidman — can get into acting if they want to but he is just not going to push it on them.
"All my kids can get into acting. What I do is try to find out what they're interested in and support them in that. There's no pressure. I'm lucky. I love what I do. I think with them, it's just find out what you want to do and support it," he said.

Cruise's 18-year-old son Connor has already given acting a shot, appearing in the 2008 flick "Seven Pounds" with Will Smith.
