Though many in the media have been analyzing how Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes will split their $275 million fortune after ending their five-and-a-half years marriage, Hollywood comedians made light of the divorce by cracking a few jokes instead.

Meanwhile, some made cracks at Cruise’s history of divorces, who split from former Days of Thunder costar Nicole Kidman in 2001 and The X Files actress Mimi Rogers in 1990.
