Tom Cruise's pending divorce from actress Katie Holmes will mark the third failed marriage for the Rock of Ages star and even though all three of his blushing brides couldn't be more different, they all have one thing in common. Nicole Kidman, Mimi Rogers and Katie all broke things off with Tom when they were 33-years-old!
Tom's first marriage was to Mimi Rogers. They tied the knot in May 1987, separated in December 1989 and divorced in February 1990. Mimi was 31 when they married and 33 when they split. There have been multiple rumors as to why this couple split, but sex seemed to be a major factor with Mimi stating, "Tom was seriously thinking of becoming a monk. At least for that period of time, it looked as though marriage wouldn't fit into his overall spiritual need. And he thought he had to be celibate to maintain the purity of his instrument. Therefore it became obvious we had to split," to Playboy in 1993.
Marriage No. 2 was to actress Nicole Kidman. This was Tom's longest marriage, lasting just over 10 years. Tom and Nicole married in December 1990, separated February 2001 and divorced August 2001. Nicole was 23 when they married and 33 when they split. They adopted two children together, Connor and Isabella.
Tom's latest love was Katie Holmes, who is 17 years younger than Tom. It started off with a whirlwind romance and a dream come true wedding! Prior to even meeting the Hollywood hunk, Katie dished on her secret crush to Seventeen magazine, saying, "I think every little girl dreams about [her wedding]. I used to think I was going to marry Tom Cruise." And she did, but it didn't last. After 51/2 years of marriage, Katie Holmes filed for divorce at the age of 33. The couple have not given any reasons for the divorce, but there are A LOT of rumors going around, including Katie wants to further her career or they couldn't agree on how to raise their 6-year-old daughter Suri. But whatever the reason, it didn't last.
So, three marriages with all the brides leaving Tom at the age of 33.... Crazy.... Right?
