The Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes split is the biggest bit of recent entertainment news in America since last week. The moment I put on the TV in the hotel room last Friday,it came tumbling out like a surge of vicarious gossip,some surely speculative,but the rest reportage about what’s going on. Paparazzi pictures,quotes from friends,mothers and others and TV hosts analysing “one of the biggest divorces of one of the most watched marriages of Hollywood”. A reporter on an entertainment channel made a cool point. “It’s difficult,” she said,”to keep a marriage going in Hollywood but what is it about Tom Cruise (one of the most powerful,good looking,richest,wanted men on earth) that he can’t sustain his relationships? This is after all his second divorce after he split with Nicole Kidman.

I have been relentlessly hooked to the Cruise-Holmes split since,also because Suri,the adorable daughter of this splitting couple is one of the most natural child fashionistas we have seen in the last few decades and the couple has attention from fashion hacks like us for that reason too. Besides,who can deny that Tom Cruise is indeed one of the few men who stokes fancies and fantasies of women all over the world?

So it appears that one of the reasons the pretty and stable Katie Holmes doesn’t want to be with him anymore (going by what American media claims) is that Cruise is a controlling lover and husband. Through their relationship,he allegedly told her which friends to meet,where to go and what to wear. She did becoming a subdued version of herself.

But only till she found that she wore her own skin best. And,he didn’t like approve. Even though more details will invariably tumble out of the closet,it makes me wonder: is Tom Cruise really that cool and hot as we think he is?
