Tom Cruise finally opened up about his sudden divorce from Katy Holmes last summer, maybe it is a good time to be in the limelight now that he promotes his new sci-fi "Oblivion!"
Cruise confessed to German TV network ProSieben to being taken aback when the 34-year-old actress decided to end their five-year marriage abruptly last June, posted eonline.
Apparently the Hollywood star was 'oblivious' to troubles on the marriage front, "I did not expect that," admitted Cruise!
Holmes announced their separation on June 29—five days before Cruise's 50th birthday pushing for speedy negotiations that lead to a settlement two weeks later.
Katie was given custody over their daughter Suri 6 and Tom got open visitation rights.
The split wised up 50 year old Tom as it gave him "an incredible amount of time to reflect," he said.
"Life is a challenge, 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," Cruise explained.
Cruise's "Oblivion" hits theaters on April 19 with costar Morgan Freeman but he's also busy with another sci-fi adventure "All You Need Is Kill" as well as a fifth Mission: Impossible film!

The murder of 20 children in Newtown, Connecticut might have an effect on the box office returns of the brand-new film, "Jack Reacher," based on Lee Child's book series.
Tom Cruise's film Jack Reacher depicts the shooting of five people right in the beginning of the film but it is not random as it seems. There is no innocence in the Reacher books, no meaningless violence and lots of justification to be made.
Jack Reacher is a nonexistent kind of man is the savior when justice fails. He uses his fists and his wits and gun against evil and fights it.
Reacher comes in time with the rise of the need for justice to be satisfied, villains punished and violence stopped on its tracks.
Tom Cruise succeeded in pulling off a character that he doesn't physically resemble but he certainly beats up the bad guys in a time people need to see it done not just in America but in many parts of the infested world.

The film was directed by Christopher McQuarrie and features Tom on a random killing spree. The Connecticut shooter was in his thirties and attacked a primary school in Newtown on December 14th. He shot his mom, a teacher, and 25 other people, 18 of which were children, then he committed suicide.

Holmes made sure to get custody of her 6 year old daughter Suri.
Reports noted that the actor's Scientology religion might be the reason behind the divorce, but Holmes only cited different opinions in the divorce papers.

Tom Cruise is expected to head the cast in a remake of a classic western. According to "Variety" magazine, the "Top Gun" and "Mission Impossible" actor may star in a remake of "The Magnificent Seven", made in 1960 and based on the Japanese film "Seven Samurai".
Aside from Tom Cruise's possible involvement, he hasn't actually signed anything yet, we have no other solid information to get our teeth into regarding this project at the studios at MGM.
Whatever happens, in view of the many productions Tom is already involved with, this remake of "The Magnificent Seven" isn't likely to happen in the short term. The actor is once more very popular in Hollywood, at the moment he is shooting the sci-fi movie "Oblivion", due out in 2013.
