Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and 8 Other Peaceful Celebrity Divorces (PHOTOS)

Tomkat Divorce Settled!
Cruise & Holmes reach a settlement in their split. Read More »

Perhaps the most surprising part of Katie Holmes' divorce from Tom Cruise is how quickly everything was settled -- 10 days, to be exact. (The couple reached an official settlement on Monday, as confirmed by Holmes' attorney, Jonathan Wolfe.)

Of course, whether or not Holmes and Cruise actually stay on amicable terms remains to be seen; the details of their settlement remain private, due in part to protect their six-year-old daughter, Suri.

But given the speed and relative ease in which they went from married to, well, not, there may be a happy light at the end of the tunnel for the now-former couple, who announced the end of their five-and-a-half-year marriage on June 29.

Should it happen, it wouldn't be the first time a high-profile celebrity couple managed to divorce without any serious war wounds -- even in a place like Hollywood, where the divorce rate is higher than the weekly album sales for Adele's 21.

Celebuzz has compiled a list of eight celebrity divorces that went off without a hitch, for lack of a better word -- everyone from Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, who remain on friendly terms for the sake of their children, to White Stripes singer Jack White and Karen Elson, who actually threw a divorce party for each other, in 2011.

Check out the eight happy-to-be-divorced couples in our gallery now, then tell us: Do you think Cruise and Holmes will make it out of all of this in one piece?
