In the spring of 2005, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes met.
They hit it off immediately and began a whirlwind romance, which many people felt was a publicity stunt. Many people are eating serious helpings of crow now.
Their first date was said to be a sushi dinner aboard Tom's private plane and later that month, they were exclusive. By April of 2006, they had a daughter, Suri.
Then in November 18 of that year, TomKat became lovingly joined in matrimony. Yep, today's there five-year anniversary. That's like 25 in Hollywood years!
Tom Cruise takes a lot of flack for being kind of out there in his own world, but let's face it, he and Katie are not only harmless, but a model relationship in many ways.
We don't know them personally, but neither goes out of their way to seek attention and both seem like attentive parents and spouses. Quirky, maybe, but who's not?
With so much coverage devoted to Kim Kardashian and Ashton Kutcher, it's nice to see a marriage working out, isn't it? Granted, it's his third. But they try! Hard!
It seems like forever ago that Cruise, who's now filming Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, was jumping on couches and warring with Matt Lauer like a loon.
We kinda miss those days, but we're glad he's happier and mellower with Katie these days. Happy anniversary, TomKat, and happy weekend, THG readers ...
