Katie Holmes wasn’t the first actress to be called Mrs. Tom Cruise.
From 1987-1990, Mimi Rogers was married to the Risky Business actor, 50; it was the actress’ second marriage and Cruise’s first.
At the premiere of Hope Springs in New York City August 6, Rogers opened up to Us Weekly about Cruise’s recent split with his third wife, Katie Holmes, 33. “I wish them both the best. There’s not much else to say. I really do, though,” Rogers, 56, said. She then reiterated, “I wish them the best.”
Rogers has been married to producer Chris Ciaffa since 2003; they are parents to Lucy (born in 1994) and Charles (born in 2001). “I think marriage is hard work no matter what,” she said, referencing the central theme in Hope Springs (starring Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones). “I think it’s about first and foremost being great friends.”
Though Rogers isn’t taking sides in her ex’s latest divorce drama, a source recently told Us that Holmes consulted Cruise’s second wife, Nicole Kidman, in the final days of her marriage.
Kidman, 45, “offered her support and help since she’s been there,” the source explained. “She has been a private friend not many people know about. She told Katie her life is great now and she has no regrets.”
After filing for divorce from Cruise, Holmes was awarded primary physical custody of their daughter, Suri, 6. The mother-daughter duo currently resides in a $12,500-a-month apartment in New York City.
