Suri's stupendous!

Katie Holmes says she loves bringing her 4-year-old daughter to work with her.

"I love being a mom," Holmes, 31, cooed to Access Hollywood of her child with husband Tom Cruise. "Suri comes to the set with me...She is amazing and it's really fun to share making a movie with her. She brings so much to it."

What kind of effect does the little one have? "She is such a light that you instantly feel better," Holmes said at Tuesday's NYC junket for her flick The Romantics.

"When I'm working, I feel like 'Wow, this is so magical I get to share this with you, and you give me so much.' It's really fun," the actress adds.

And little Suri bonds with other kids on the set as well.

"Everyone brings their kids and we do play dates there and paint pottery," she said. "There's always like a million things going on at once and you just do it!"
