A look back at their best moments.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were distant in the days leading up to the end of their marriage — literally.

The superstar actor was spotted filming his latest flick, Oblivion, in Iceland, on Wednesday. Photographers captured him donning a silver spacesuit and carrying what looked to be a faux laser gun as he trekked across the surface of a volcano.

Meanwhile, Holmes was apparently readying her divorce papers.

The Dawson’s Creek actress filed to end their five-year marriage today.

“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” Holmes’ attorney Jonathan Wolfe told PEOPLE. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”

Cruise’s rep, meanwhile, told Celebuzz: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.”

Cruise’s sci-fi thriller Oblivion focuses on a veteran soldier who’s sent to a distant planet and told to destroy the remains of an alien race. It’s due to hit theaters next year.
