LOS ANGELES - Hollywood dream couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce after five years of marriage, People magazine reported Friday.

"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," an attorney for 33-year-old Holmes told the magazine. "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."

Cruise, who turns 50 on Tuesday, wed Holmes in an Italian castle in November 2006 after famously declaring his love for the former "Dawson's Creek" star on "Oprah." They have a six-year-old daughter, Suri.

It was Holmes's first marriage and Cruise's third.

Cruise, one of Hollywood's most bankable stars, was married to Australian actress Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children, from 1990 to 2001, and to American actress Mimi Rogers from 1987 to 1990.

He also had a three-year relationship with Spanish actress Penelope Cruz.
