According to People, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have decided to divorce after what looked like a happy five-year marriage.

Shortly after the news surfaced, the couple's reps issued statements on behalf of the actors. Katie's attorney, Johnathan Wolfe, said: 'This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest'. Tom Cruise's reply came via his rep, who told People: 'Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy'.

Tom Cruise, 49, and Katie Holmes, 33, got married in the fall of 2006. Their wedding was a star-studded ceremony held at a 15-century Italian castle, in Bracciano. They have a 6-year old daughter named Suri. While this was Katie's first marriage, for Tom it was the third, as he was previously married to Nicole Kidman (with whom he has two children) and actress Mimi Rogers (from 1987 to 1990). Katie Holmes, who rose to fame due to her role in the TV drama 'Dawson's Creek' once told Seventeen magazine she had always dreamed of marrying Tom Cruise: 'I've found the man of my dreams. From the moment I met him, it just felt like I'd known him forever. I was blown away. He's the most incredible man. He's so generous and kind, and he helps so many people, and he makes me laugh like I've never laughed, and he's a great friend.' Tom Cruise was also very generous in his public expressions of affection for Holmes and told Oprah Winfrey: 'I love relationships. ... It just happened. I kept looking [at Katie] and thinking, 'This woman's amazing.' I'm happy that I'm with her. She's amazing, and I'd think the same of her even if she wasn't with me. She's just amazing.'

The 'Rock of Ages' star, Tom Cruise, was spotted in Iceland this week, where he is shooting for his upcoming movie, 'Oblivion'.
