My girl ... Katie Holmes carries Suri Cruise yesterday
CONTROL freak Tom Cruise banned Katie Holmes from appearing in photos which showed her KISSING co-stars, it was claimed last night.
He also refused to let her fly with fellow actors — insisting she used his private jet so his entourage could keep an eye on her.
The claims emerged as Katie, 33, who is filing for divorce, was pictured looking painfully thin in a backless top in New York yesterday.
A source said Scientology cult member Cruise, 50, ordered film bosses to scrap any promotional posters which showed her in “compromising” positions for a movie in 2005.
They had just started dating when Katie appeared in Thank You For Smoking with Aaron Eckhart.
And in the making of Batman Begins the Top Gun star banned her from flying with the rest of the cast.
The source said: “Tom treated her like a robot, taking every decision about her public and private life.”
Gaunt-looking Katie yesterday took their daughter Suri, six, to an Alice In Wonderland teashop in the Big Apple.
