You’d know when celebrities start spilling details of their personal lives (even if they’re known to be secretive about these things) that they’re promoting a new film, music or something. Tom Cruise, who is on a world tour for his movie “Oblivion,” did just that in Germany and opened up about his divorce from Katie Holmes.
In an interview with German TV network ProSieben (via Germany’s Bunte magazine), the actor revealed that he “did not expect” the 34-year-old actress’ decision to end their five-year marriage last June.
Holmes announced their separation on June 29, five days before Cruise’s 50th birthday, and quickly settled negotiations about custody over their 6-year-old daughter Suri.
Cruise isn’t bitter about the split, saying that the divorce gave him an “an incredible amount of time to reflect.” He added, “Life is a challenge. To be 50 and have experiences and think you have everything under control, and then it hits you—that’s what life is…Life is tragicomic. You need a certain sense of humor.”
