The actor, who recently turned 50, wore a plaid shirt and jeans, maintaining his professional focus less than two weeks after estranged wife Katie Holmes blindsided him by filing papers to end their five-year marriage on June 28. At the time, Cruise was in Iceland working on Oblivion; he reportedly received a phone call from Holmes — informing him of her intent to divorce him — while he was shooting a stunt scene.
As we previously reported, Tom and Katie said in a joint statement Monday that they’re “committed to working together as parents to accomplishing what is in our daughter Suri‘s best interests.
“We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents,” they said.
In their agreement, the Rock of Ages star granted Katie sole custody of 6-year-old Suri — a move which ex-Scientology auditor Marty Rathbun characterized as the actor choosing “his religion over his daughter.”
Rathbun, an ex-high-ranking Scientologist, said church head David Miscavige likely put pressure on Tom “to settle the divorce quickly.”
All three of his wives were 33-years-old when their marriages ended with Cruise.
