Tom Cruise finally speaks out about his 2012 divorce from actress, Katie Holmes. After a 5 year marriage, Holmes filed for divorce 5 days before Cruise’s 50th birthday. “I didn’t expect it,” he confesses to German TV Network ProSieben. According to UsMagazine.com, Cruise admits “To be 50 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 need to have a sense of humor.” Holmes, who now resides in New York with the couple’s daughter Suri, is moving on with her life as well. She is in a new broadway play an also has a fashion line. Director and friend of the couple, Adam Shankman, says “They are incredibly happy. I’ve just been  emailing with [Tom]. He’s coming back. He’s shooting [All You Need Is  Kill] in London and seems as happy as a clam. I know he sees his daughter.”
