Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes Divorcing

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes at the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on February 26, 2012. Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing. The couple wed in November of 2006 in Italy and have a daughter together, Suri, who's six.

In a statement provided to ABC News Radio, Holmes' publicist declares, "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."

The union was Cruise's third; he was previously married to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman. He has two adopted children with Kidman. It was Holmes' first marriage.

Cruise famously declared his love for Holmes on The Oprah Winfrey Show in May of 2005 by jumping up and down on Oprah's couch, which made him an object of ridicule.  The couple's relationship has been plagued by gossip and rumors for years.

The split comes during a major upswing in Cruise's career.  Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol was a huge hit, and despite the poor box office returns for his most recent film, Rock of Ages, Cruise himself received good reviews for his portrayal of '80s rocker Stacee Jaxx.

Bert Fields, Tom Cruise's longtime attorney, tells ABC News, "Katie Holmes did file for divorce yesterday. Tom Cruise is saddened by this news but is concentrating on his children."  Another source close to the actor told ABC News that the filing came as a "complete surprise" to him, and so did the fact that Holmes is asking for "sole custody of Suri."

Tom Cruise to Join Beyonce in "A Star Is Born" Remake?

ABC/RICK ROWELL(NEW YORK) -- Will Beyonce's new co-star in Clint Eastwood's remake of A Star Is Born be ... Tom Cruise? Deadline.com reports that the superstar actor is in talks to appear in the movie as the male lead: an over-the-hill musician who helps launch the career of an up-and-coming star -- that's Beyonce -- and then falls in love with her.

According to Deadline, Cruise has already proved that he can handle the singing required of the role, because he recently portrayed an '80s rock icon in the forthcoming musical Rock of Ages. Though the start of the film was delayed due to Beyonce's pregnancy, Deadline now says that Blue Ivy's mom will be ready to start shooting as early as June.

The A Star Is Born reboot has been in the works for a while, and over the years, everyone from Will Smith and Eminem to Christian Bale and Russell Crowe have been mentioned for the part Cruise is now eyeing, Deadline reports.

Tom Cruise at 'Mission Impossible' Premiere: 'I Want to Entertain'

Fred Duval/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol, the fourth film in the Tom Cruise series, opened in IMAX and select theaters last Friday, but the New York premiere was held Monday night.

Cruise is back as spy Ethan Hunt, who tries to clear his team of wrongdoing after it's blamed for a bombing of the Kremlin.  In the film, Cruise is seen running up and down the side of the world’s tallest building -- stunt work that he performed himself.

On the red carpet Monday, when asked why he would risk his life on such a stunt, Cruise replied, “I don't know, man. I was thinking I wanted to entertain. When I saw the sequence that [director Brad Bird] designed, I mean, to put something like that on film.  I was very excited about it.”

The actor says the stunt wasn’t just him, it took a lot of work from every department working on the film to, “pull it off and pull it off in very dynamic way.”

Cruise says ever since he was a little kid he's wanted to entertain and to make movies, and he feels privileged to be able to do it.  He says it’s something “he’s never taken for granted.”

Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol
co-stars Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg. It opens nationwide tomorrow.

Tom Cruise Takes the Stage in 'Rock of Ages'

George Pimentel/Getty Images for Creative Artists Agency(LOS ANGELES) -- With the release of his Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol this week, Tom Cruise is showing off a different side in the new trailer for Rock of Ages.

The sneak peek of the hit Broadway musical features an all-star cast, including Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti, Russell Brand, and Julianne Hough.  It only teases Cruise as the leather pants-wearing, long-haired, boob-signing rocker Stacee Jaxx, but shows the rest of the cast apparently having a blast with the material -- and the music: the soundtrack features a who's who of hair bands.

The movie hits theaters June 1, 2012.
