Katie Holmes has done her best to keep her and Tom Cruise's daughter, Suri Cruise, out of the spotlight. She recently shared a photo of the two of them, though, and it's getting attention for all the right reasons.
Holmes's claims to fame include her first big role as Joey Potter on the show Dawson's Creek and various other roles in plays and movies, such as Rachel in Batman Begins. Holmes married Tom Cruise in 2006 and before their breakup in 2012, they had a daughter: Suri.
Katie recently shared a photo of herself and Suri to Instagram. The photo appears to show the two of them in front of a large window looking out over a snowy mountainside.
She included a quote from poet Virginia Woolf as a caption:
"No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself."
The quote is from Woolf's A Room Of One's Own, in which she reflects on the hardships faced by women because of their historical exclusion from academia and the workforce.
Holmes also shared a photo of herself and Suri with two friends outside a ski lodge on New Year's Eve.
Instagram users were quick to praise Holmes's parenting and appreciated the view, both of the snowy scape and the mother-daughter relationship .
If her Virginia Woolf quote is anything like what Holmes is teaching Suri, she's definitely doing parenting right. We could all do with a little more honesty and being true to ourselves.
