Seeing Suri seems to have become mission impossible for Tom Cruise these days.

Apparently, the star hasn't spent time with his adorable 6-year-old daughter in over a month—a sharp contrast to near-daily pics showing ex-wife Katie Holmes doting over Suri's every move.

In fact, the last time the Rock of Ages star was snapped with his li'l cutie was in late July when he took Suri to Disney World, where the two hit the beach and where the pint-size fashionista channeled her inner princess in a Little Mermaid getup.

But the explanation for the star's absence, his camp says, is actually pretty simple: Cruise is a busy working dad.

"Tom has been in England shooting a film," Cruise's attorney, Bert Fields, exclusively tells E! News.

Indeed, the star has been hunkering down in London, where he's currently shooting the upcoming thriller All You Need Is Kill.

Despite the distance, the 50-year-old does manage to score some precious moments with Suri.

"He calls Suri every day, ­ sometimes twice a day," Fields says. "He loves Suri and is a constant presence in her life. As in the past, when he¹s shooting in a foreign country, he has to rely on daily phone calls."

Still, the distance can't be easy for Cruise, who had to watch from across the pond as Suri had her first day of school in New York City last week.

Here's hoping Pop scores some face time soon with his precious gal: From what we hear, Suri's got some snazzy gymnastics moves to show him!
