We love that Katie Holmes is one hands-on mom, who teaches her daughter to be a powerful woman!
The notoriously private Katie took to Instagram to share a photo of her recent stint directing the made-for-TV miniseries, "The Kennedys: After Camelot." But it appears as though the "Touched by Fire" actress wasn't doing the directing gig alone — she had daughter Suri Cruise by her side!
In the Instagram image posted on June 17, the black-and-white photo shows the proud mom with her 10-year-old daughter, as they both sit in director's chairs and wear headphones. The mother-daughter duo both look off camera.
Along with the sweet snap, Katie wrote, "My sweetie ❤️ #setlife #gratitude."
Also -- we love that it looks like Suri has her own monogrammed chair. Too cute!
In addition to making her directorial debut for the miniseries, the former "Dawson's Creek" star reprised her role as Jackie O. Tom Cruise's ex wife directed an episode of the miniseries, entitled "All We Had."
Co-star Judy Greer recently praised the brunette on her directing skills. She told People magazine, "She's amazing. She wasn't bossy, no ... I mean, she's bossy, don't get me wrong, but she was never bossy with me."
Judy went on to say, "I liked working for her a lot. It's fun to get immediate feedback from your friends about your performance. It's great! It's always fun to have someone come and see what you're doing from a different view. She's a great director."
Katie also previously admitted that she thought directing was "challenging but rewarding."
The directing newbie said, "I was actually on both sides [of the camera]. It was an undertaking, but the movie was produced by Jane Rosenthal and you couldn't ask for a better producer, so I felt very taken care of."
"It was very challenging! But very, very rewarding. Hopefully you just get better every time you do it. That's what I'm hoping for," added the actress.
Looks like Judy, Katie and Suri got a lot out of the directing newbie's role behind the camera!
