Isn't she a bit heavy? Katie Holmes grimaced as she picked up four-year-old daughter Suri on the set of Jack And Jill in Los Angeles
Suri Cruise is determined to make the most of her time as a tot.
The four-year-old lifted up her arms for mother Katie Holmes to pick her up as she visited her on the set of new movie Jack And Jill in Los Angeles yesterday.
But Katie, 32, appeared to be struggling to pick up her ever-growing daughter, grimacing as she hoisted her onto her hip.
However, the former Dawson's Creek star eventually managed to give Suri a ride, before taking her over to an animal pen on the set to make some furry new friends.
Katie looked more excited than Suri as they headed over to the pen, where an animal trainer introduced the pair to an incredibly cute micro pig.
Katie has been filming Jack And Jill for the past few months alongside Adam Sandler - the story of Jack who has to deal with his twin sister when she refuses to leave his house after spending the Thanksgiving holiday with him.
Sandler is playing the roles of both Jack and Jill in the film, while Katie will star as Jack's wife.

There's no doubt Katie will be hoping Jack And Jill will be more successful than the TV miniseries she recently finished filming, The Kennedys.
The eight-part show, which stars Katie as the First Lady and Greg Kinnear as JFK, was set to air in the U.S. later this year.
But it is unlikely to ever be shown in the U.S. after pressure from surviving members of the Kennedy clan.

Is that a smile, Suri? The four-year-old looks delighted as she is introduced to a micro pig
In an interview with Elle magazine that took place before the show was axed, the former Dawson's Creek actress said she immersed herself in research, reading books and watching old footage of the former U.S. First Lady.
'[Tom] watched everything with me,' Holmes says of her 48-year-old husband Tom Cruise. 'He found it fascinating.'
The mother-of-one tells the magazine that she spent her evenings practising Kennedy's accent.

'I worked as hard as I could,' she says, 'because I loved her. On set there was this feeling that we had to create something very special, because these people were very special.'
Fashion designer Giorgio Armani, who was invited by the programme's producers to design some outfits for Holmes, says that, onset, the actress looked a lot like the former First Lady.
Armani says: 'With the Sixties hairstyle, Katie bears an extraordinary resemblance to Jackie and the effect is one of charismatic appeal.'
