Tom Cruise hasn't been photographed with daughter Suri since their father/daughter outing to Disney World in July, and before everyone jumps to conclusions about the A-list actor abandoning his little girl, they should hear the reason behind the Rock of Ages star's absence!

"Tom has been in England shooting a film," Cruise's attorney Bert Fields tells E! News.

Not that he has been shirking on daddy duty!

"He calls Suri every day, sometimes twice a day. He loves Suri and is a constant presence in her life. As in the past, when he's shooting in a foreign countru, he has to rely on daily phone calls," Fields adds.

The fashionable 6-year-old is keeping busy with mom Katie Holmes these days, and even started classes at a prestigious private school in New York City last week.

The former power couple's split has apparently been hard on the little girl, however. "The divorce has been hard on Suri and she's acting out. Katie says no to some things, but gives a little leeway. She knows Tom is going to spoil her," a source close to Holmes told Us Weekly recently.

Stay strong Suri!
