TOM Cruise and Katie Holmes are calling it quits after five years of marriage.

"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," Holmes's attorney Jonathan Wolfe said. "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."

Cruise's lawyer Bert Fields said Holmes filed for divorce on Thursday.

Cruise, 49, wed the 33-year-old Holmes in 2006 in an Italian castle after publicly declaring his love on The Oprah Winfrey Show, emphatically jumping on her couch.

The couple has a 6-year-old daughter, Suri, who has herself become a staple of the tabloids and celebrity magazines.
