Tom Cruise Says He’s ‘Looking Forward’ to Spending the Holidays With His Family

Single superstar Tom Cruise has given his first interview since splitting with Katie Holmes and says he’s looking forward to Christmas surrounded by his loved ones.

The 50-year-old Mission Impossible star seems to have put the heartbreak of his divorce behind him as he concentrates on celebrating the festive season with his family.

“We have got lots of very special things planned (for the holidays),” Cruise revealed to reporters at the London premiere of his latest flick, Jack Reacher.

The father-of-three plans to put his hectic filming schedule on hold to spend time with children Bella Cruise, 20, Connor Cruise, 17, and Suri Cruise, 6, according to PEOPLE.

“We are all going to be together — I am looking forward to it,” he added.

Cruise is currently filming in London as he shoots the action sci-fi film All You Need Is Kill and the British capital is quickly becoming his home away from home.

“I love it here. I have made so many films here and I have worked with so many of the actors here. It is a wonderful place to live,” he said.

“I am shooting a film over here … seven days a week. But I feel great. It doesn’t take up all my time, but I have a very busy schedule and I like it that way.”

Cruise, who’s been married three times, and Holmes finalized their divorce in August after five years together.

Holmes, 33, sent shockwaves through Hollywood when she filed for divorce in June, with many insiders claiming that Cruise’s Scientology beliefs were a major factor in the end of their marriage.

But the pair have managed to remain on civil terms continuing to communicate for the sake of their little girl who lives in New York with her mother, who’s also starring on Broadway in Dead Accounts.

As part of the divorce settlement Cruise gets liberal visitation and travel arrangements so that he can spend time with his youngest daughter.
