Just when we thought he thought was finally a distant memory in our cultural consciousness, Tom Cruise had to go and prowl around for a new Scientology-wife.

But who can forget his first go-around with Katie Holmes? No one…it was so ridiculous.  Still, it’s been a while since he was all over the media spouting off about Katie Holmes and Scientology. 

To be exact, it has been 10 years.

Ten years ago, Tom Cruise famously jumped on Oprah Winfrey’s couch while professing his love for Katie Holmes.

“I’m in love,” he said before jumping up and down like a whack-a-doodle on her gold couch.  “She’s truly extraordinary,” he told Oprah.

“Dear God, you are gone,” Oprah responded.  She has always had a knack for identifying the obvious.

“I’m gone and I don’t care,” Cruise replied.  Ugh, why can’t he be gone and not come back???

Of course, he was head-over-heels in love with Holmes then.  But luckily for Katie, they divorced later.

Recently, reports surfaced that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are dating.  We like that pairing MUCH better.
