Did Tom Cruise Break Silence on Katie Holmes Divorce?


By Daniel Gates


Tom Cruise has broken his silence about last year’s split from Katie Holmes, according to widespread interpretations of a new interview out of Germany.

Speaking with German TV outlet ProSieben, the Oblivion star was quoted as saying of Holmes’ decision to file for divorce, “I did not expect that.”

Cruise allegedly added that the breakup gave him “an incredible amount of time to reflect.”

Holmes ended the couple’s marriage shortly before Cruise’s 50th birthday last summer.

“Life is a challenge,” says the actor. “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.”

However, Gossip Cop has learned that many of Cruise’s comments were taken out of context and were actually answers to questions having nothing to do with anything but his professional life.

A rep tells us much of what’s circulating from the interview was “made up.”
