20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes’ Marriage

Hollywood marriages come and go, but Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes managed to make their 5-year union the stuff of legend.

It was memorable right out of the gate. In 2005, Cruise appeared on Oprah to make a pronouncement. The War of the Worlds star was in love with Katie Holmes, and he wanted to show everyone that it was the real deal in the best way he could think of: by jumping on Oprah’s furniture, repeatedly fist-pumping, and whooping periodically. Later in the episode, Cruise pulled his new girlfriend on stage and kissed her awkwardly to prove, once again, just how real it all was.

Two months later, Tom proposed to Katie at the top of the Eiffel Tower followed by the traditional post-engagement press conference, and an elaborate wedding.

But it wasn’t to last. In June 2012, Holmes reportedly stunned her husband when she served him divorce papers. Details were scant, but sources said that Holmes sought full custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri. The most shocking public detail was how fast they wrapped it up. However, fans and press couldn’t help but speculate on what made Holmes leave so suddenly.
