It looks like Tom Cruise’s unlucky number is 33 – as all three of his ex-wives called it quits when they reached that very same age.
Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes were all in their early thirties when their marriages to the Hollywood leading man took a turn for the worse.
Mr Cruise married Mimi Rogers when she was 31 in May of 1987. She was 33 when they broke up in 1990. In his second marriage to Nicole Kidman, the actors stayed together for ten years. They split in 2001, when she was 33.
His wedding with Katie Holmes was in 2006 when she was 28 and this week, when she filed for divorce, she had reached the ripe old age of 33.
The actress cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the cause to the split.
“Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy to work this out,” his publicist said in a statement.
Cruise has not yet hired a divorce attorney, said his longtime legal representative, Bert Fields.
Happy birthday, Tom Cruise. He turns 50 on Tuesday.
