Washington: Newly single Tom Cruise, who is based in an apartment in a luxury hotel just outside London currently, has been making several calls a day to his daughter Suri, who lives in New York City with mum Katie Holmes.

The 50-year-old actor has been working long hours on his sci-fi thriller ‘All You Need Is Kill’ since August.

“He misses his little girl,” a magazine has quoted his friend, screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, as saying.

However, often, late at night once film work is wrapped, the ‘Mission Impossible’ star relaxes over spirited dinners and occasional club nights with old and new pals.

On September 20, he caught a late night dinner with actress Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnett, who produced the MTV Movie Awards, the year Cruise appeared as his ‘Tropic Thunder’ alter ego Les Grossman.

The night before, he hung out with friends including McQuarrie and his wife, at the nightclub Annabel’s till 3 am.

At Annabel’s, a laid-back Cruise chatted up with several fellow club-goers.

“Tom loves the people here [in England]. They’re friendly,” a source said.

Earlier in the month, Cruise caught up with his friend Mark Rylance in Shakespeare’s ‘Richard III’ at the Globe Theatre, and at the end of August he caught up with his former girlfriend Penelope Cruz, husband Javier Bardem and his ‘Knight and Day’ co-star Cameron Diaz at a dinner in Coworth Park.

“When he’s in London he’s going to be seeing his friends. [But] there is no mystery woman,” a source said.
