Tom Cruise is currently in the middle of promoting his new movie “Oblivion” and is finally speaking on the topic of his divorce from Katie Holmes. She pulled the plug on their marriage just five days shy from his 50th birthday and now he is opening up about the ordeal.
And in case you’re curious, yes, the formerly known “Robo-Katie” caught Tommy Girl off guard. Ha. After they called it quits, Tom was apparently seething in his own silence — but not anymore.
Of Katie’s divorce filing, he said, “I didn’t expect it.”
He went on to reveal that he “had an unbelievable amount of time to think about it” before throwing himself into a bunch of movie projects. He said, “Life is a challenge.”
He added, “To be fifty and to have experiences and to think you have a grip on everything, and then it hits you – this is it, what life can do to you. Life is a tragicomedy. You have to have a sense of humor.”
And we would be remiss if we didn’t mention that after seeing the trailer for “Oblivion” in a recent theater outing, that it looks super awesome. Would you see Tom’s new flick? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
