Tom Cruise says he doesn't worry about 17-year-old daughter Bella dating bad boys because he trusts her judgement
Tom Cruise trusts his daughter's judgement of boys.
The 'Knight and Day' actor - who has two adopted children, Bella, 17, and 15-year-old Connor with ex-wife Nicole Kidman, as well as four-year-old Suri with current spouse Katie Holmes - says he doesn't really worry about Bella dating lads who are no good for her because she's so sensible and mature.
He said: "Bella has a very strong sense of herself...She's a good girl, so whoever she likes, it's cool."
However, he admits he's a bit more cautious when it comes to aspiring actor Connor.
He said: "He's pretty smart so I just listen. And I also tell him, you know, he's got plenty of time for that."
While little Suri is far too young to be thinking of dating, Tom says she's very strong-willed especially when it comes to her clothes.
Speaking on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show', he said: "Whatever she wants to wear, she wears it. I'm not going to tell her different.
"She's got great taste too. She tells me what to wear."
The 47-year-old heartthrob feels very grateful for his life and couldn't ask for anything more.
He said: "Life is very good. I'm very happy. Kids are growing up, love my wife. I feel very lucky."
