Tom Cruise has apparently become so obsessed with stepping up security for his 6-year-old daughter Suri in recent months, according to sources for the New York Daily News, that he’s hired a pint-size body double seen recently in TriBeCa.

Suri’s body double was just speculation until she was recently photographed leaving Suri’s Manhattan school with Katie Holmes and entering a ‘wichcraft sandwich shop, where she reportedly was swapped with the real Suri Cruise, accompanied by her nanny. Both girls were wearing the same blue down coat, black leggings, and tan Ugg boots with pink soles, but the real Suri was wearing her favorite panda hat while her adorable doppelganger was photographed in a large flower headband.

This new obsession shouldn’t shock too many as Tom has been known to completely obsess over other things in the past (see: his couch stunt on Oprah when he announced he was in love with now ex-wife Katie). And you really can’t blame the protective father for wanting to keep his little girl safe in the midst of the media maelstrom surrounding his family.

It is not yet known whether there are any threats to Suri’s safety that would prompt her famous dad to resort to such measures, but then Tom has always been into extra security when it comes to his little girl.

“Tom wants the names of all the parents of the kids Suri plays with,” a source close to Katie told the New York Daily News. “He has to approve them before Suri can go to their houses or apartments alone. He has them investigated and he keeps a file on everyone. He is very cautious when it comes to her.”

It turns out that the couple didn’t have far to search for a lookalike either. Fake Suri and Katie were actually photographed talking a month earlier, so it seems they’ve known each other for a while.
