A look back, in pictures, at the five-plus-year marriage of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Tom Cruise famously proposed to Katie Holmes atop the Eiffel Tower in June 2005. The power couple married in Italy in 2006 but their five-year union -- practically a lifetime in Hollywood years -- lasted until Holmes suddenly filed for divorce on June 29, 2012. Here's a photographic trip spanning from courtship through their couch-jumping, Suri-toting, red-carpet-cuddling, TomKatting years.
