"She's very, very talented. She said she would do it and she recorded it and I let her do her thing," Katie, 43, said. "That's the way I direct in general: It's like, 'This is what I think we all want - go do your thing'." 

Suri's voice can be heard in the film's opening credits. Katie was asked why she chose Suri for the job and she said: "I always want the highest level of talent, so I asked her."

Suri is growing up so fast 

"I painted, we had a sewing machine, so we were making quilts, we were cooking; we were on a perpetual vacation," Katie told the sophomore issue of Amazing magazine.

"We were also on a lake and there was a hammock, so I would wake up, sew, have coffee, take a nap on the hammock [laughs]… Oh and, by the way, I have to throw this in; we were staying by a lake, so we probably watched Dirty Dancing ten times. Let me tell you, I danced to it in the living room, and it still holds up. It was fun."

Katie is raising Suri in New York 

"She came out very strong – she's always been a strong personality. She'll pick an activity and work her butt off until she's really good at it. Then she's like, 'Ok, I'm going to try the next thing.' She's very focused and a hard worker."

Suri lives full-time with Katie and is believed to be estranged from her dad, Tom.
