NEW YORK (AP) - Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are calling it quits after five years of marriage.
"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," Holmes's attorney Jonathan Wolfe said Friday. "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."
Cruise, 49, wed the 33-year-old Holmes in 2006 in an Italian castle after publicly declaring his love on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," emphatically jumping on her couch.
The couple has a 6-year-old daughter, Suri, who has herself become a staple of the tabloids and celebrity magazines.
Their plan to divorce was first reported by People magazine.
Cruise and Holmes had a whirlwind romance - the young actress confessed she had a childhood crush on the "Top Gun" star - and were engaged at the Eiffel Tower. An elaborate wedding followed before a Church of Scientology minister.
"I can't be cool. I can't be laid-back," a starry-eyed Cruise said on "The Oprah Winfrey Show." ''Something happened and I want to celebrate it."
The couple's romance was instant fodder for the tabloids, who chattered about everything from the couple's secret feelings to Holmes' conversion to Scientology.
Cruise, currently starring in "Rock of Ages," was previously married to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children.
