Tom Cruise 'suffering with heavy suit'

A new image has emerged online from the amusingly titled All You Need Is Kill, featuring our first glimpse of Tom Cruise in his robot suit.
Tom Cruise is apparently taking regular breaks on the set of his new movie because his costume is so heavy.

The star is currently in London filming All You Need Is Kill. In the sci-fi film, Tom plays a soldier fighting aliens and wears a ‘Robocop-style’ outfit weighing a staggering 30kgs.

Tom has been required to run around a lot for the fast-paced action scenes and it appears this is taking a toll on him and his co-stars as they are carrying so much weight from the metal suit.

“Tom and the cast have been taking regular breaks as the suits are so heavy,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. “In one scene they have to run nearly half-a-mile in the armour.”

According to the publication, Tom is reportedly experiencing some pain in his back while shooting the scenes.

Meanwhile, the 50-year-old Hollywood star has been reunited with his six-year-old daughter Suri – just in time for Thanksgiving.

Tom’s ex-wife Katie Holmes agreed their daughter could travel to London to see her dad for the holiday this week.

The actor hasn’t been seen out in public with Suri for more than three months, as he has been busy filming in the UK while Suri remained in New York City with Katie.

Katie, 33, recently revealed she would be travelling to Ohio to see loved ones for Thanksgiving and was looking forward to the traditional roast dinner with all the trimmings.

“We have Thursday off, so I’m going to have a chance to go home with my family,” she explained. “My sister makes a really good sausage stuffing and my mom makes a great turkey.”
