Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are ready to end their five-year marriage -- and two days before they made their shocking divorce announcement to the world, they were thousands of miles apart.

On Wednesday, Cruise, 49, was hard at work in Iceland for his new sci-fi film, Oblivion. Shooting scenes on what appeared to be the surface of a volcano, Cruise donned a silver spacesuit and carried a futuristic laser gun.

That same day, Holmes, 33, meanwhile, was in New York City with their daughter Suri, 6; looking fatigued, the actress and fashion maven kept casual in a t-shirt, jeans and green trench-coat.

On Friday, just two days later, Holmes' attorney Jonathan Wolfe confirmed Cruise and Holmes' plans to divorce, telling Us Weekly: "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest. This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family."

Holmes reportedly visited Cruise (with Suri in tow) in Iceland earlier this month.
