Tom Cruise showed off his playful side in his first interview since the birth of his daughter, Suri, when he pretended he had a picture of the baby in his back pocket.

The movie star sat down for an interview with newscaster Deborah Roberts and the rest of the Mission: Impossible 3 cast last week and decided to have a little fun when the prying interviewer attempted to get hold of a first shot of the new baby.

Roberts was thrilled when Cruise reached into his pocket after the interviewer asked if he had a photo of his newborn on her news show 20/20.

His castmates also held their breaths as a giggling Cruise presented Roberts with nothing but an empty palm.

Roberts says, "It was really funny at first and I really thought that we would get the first peek at this beautiful little baby."
