Tom Cruise has reportedly been telling friends he has to see his daughter soon.
The American actor is currently based in London, where he is preparing for his new action movie All You Need Is Kill.
Following his high-profile split from Katie Holmes, his ex-wife currently has sole custody of their six-year-old daughter Suri. Tom is reportedly struggling with being separated from his child.
"I've got to see her. I miss her," People magazine quotes Tom as telling a pal.
"Several sources tell PEOPLE… that the actor's rigorous film commitments - which he made well before his ex, Katie Holmes, filed for divorce - have presented an exceptional challenge in terms of seeing Suri," the publication adds.
Suri is currently based in New York City, where she is enrolled at Manhattan's exclusive Avenues school.
The rigid structure of her days mean there is little time for Suri to pay her father a visit on set.
However, the star is making every effort to speak to his daughter on the phone regularly.
"I can tell you that I haven't had a meeting with Tom that was not interrupted by a phone call with his daughter," explained his friend, screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie.
