Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, a Hollywood A-list power couple for six years until their 2012 split, filed for divorce that year. News of the A-list couple’s breakup reportedly sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry and spurred widespread speculation as to the real reason for the breakup, as reported by Ranker.
The question then becomes why Cruise and Holmes decided to end their marriage. According to Extra, the ex-spouses initially started seeing one other in 2005. The former “Dawson’s Creek” star announced in June of that year that she and Cruise were engaged and that she intended to convert to Scientology, Cruise’s religion.
On October 2005, four months later, Holmes shared the news that she was expecting her first child. Seven months after giving birth to their daughter Suri Cruise in April 2006—who has since undergone a remarkable transformation—the couple married the knot in a lavish Italian ceremony.

Neither of them has addressed their relationship publicly, but Tom did say she was “cool as f-k” on Scheana’s August podcast, “Schenanigans,” despite their silence.
“I was so busy with my own life and married that I never had the time to get to know Raquel,” he explained. No matter what, she managed to maintain her cool.
