Paparazzi Shy Suri Cruise Prefers Working Out At Home

October 28th, 2008 // 6 Comments

Because they cause such a ruckus every time they step out, Tom Cruise has decided to build an in-house gymnastics studio at his and wife Katie Holmes‘ Manhattan apartment in the East Village.

According to a source who blabbed to Star magazine, Suri Cruise really enjoys her private gymnastics classes at Chelsa Piers but the resulting paparazzi swarms were just too much. Because of that, funnyman Tom decided to build a build a gymnasium in the couple’s apartment, complete with $7,000 worth of equipment.

With two mini trampolines, a balance beam, tumbling mats and a set of bars, a private instructor will come to the house to give Suri daily one-hour lessons.

I understand the annoyance of having the media all up in this poor girl’s face, but let’s just be careful she doesn’t turn out like Blanket Jackson.

    I honestly feel bad for the little girl. She’s going to grow up socially awkward if her parents keep isolating her from the world. It doesn’t appear like she has any friends! Just her mom and dad, which sucks. They need to get her together with little Matilda Ledger or even Christy Turlington & Ed Burns’ little girl, since they all reside in NYC as well. It’s just sad that she’s becoming soo isolated :(

    Well, if she has Tom’s height she’ll be perfect for gymnastics. ;-)

    Wonder if Katie and Tom had a screaming fight
    Maybe that is why she is covering her ears..

    There should be a tough law forbidding paparazzi from doing their things when kids are involved. Add this report to the fact she’s stuck in a Scientology environment.

    It may already be too late for her.

    Sury should take gymnastics
    lessons in Texas in the future
    and train with the best gymnastics
    coaches in the country.
    Training in Texas could really
    help her have a normal youth,have
    more friends that have things in
    common with her,plus be more
    confident and not worry about
    having paparazzis 24/7 around her.
    Hopefully she will become very
    serious about gymnastics someday.
    I would like to see Sury
    Cruise in the Olympics been part
    of a gymnastics team,that would be
    nice. I am glad that her parents
    support her interest in the sport.

    I agree that the media attention is
    too much for this little girl. It’s
    like the parents are not shielding
    her away from the paparazzis.
    Someday if she has the opportunity
    she should train in Texas,maybe
    with former olympic gymnast
    Kim Zmeskal who I heard gives
    lessons in Houston or possibly
    in another top rated gym. Dancing
    and gymnastics could help her with
    her self esteem,be stronger and
    have the chance to interact with
    other kids if she ever forms part
    of a team. Future training outside
    New York and L.A. could also
    benefit this beautiful little girl
    a lot and help her feel more
    normal.
