Tom Cruise was all smiles at the Los Angeles premiere of his new film Oblivion, as he denied reports he had spoken about his divorce to Katie Holmes.
The Hollywood star, who was decked out in grey, was joined by co-stars Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough and Melissa Leo at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, where hundreds of fans waited hours to meet the stars as part of Hollywood Boulevard was cordoned off for the event.
Tom, who turned up five hours earlier to sign autographs and pose for pictures, quashed reports that he talked about his second marriage for the first time, with his spokesman saying the stories are "all false".
The 50-year-old allegedly told German TV network ProSieben that he was taken aback when Katie, the mother of his six-year-old daughter Suri, filed for divorce last June.
"I did not expect that. Life is a challenge... To be 50 and have experiences and think you have everything under control, and then it hits you - that's what life is," the actor was quoted as saying.
His spokesman told Access Hollywood: "The entire interview was about his career. He was not asked any personal questions. It is all false."
Instead, Tom said that he would be supportive if his children - Isabella, 20, 18-year-old Connor and Suri - wanted to follow in his footsteps and pursue acting careers.
"Suri, Connor and Isabella have grown up on movie sets - the door is always open for them," he said in the interview.
Former Bond girl Olga looked stunning in a plunging black and gold Burberry gown, while Andrea wore a nude embellished Elie Saab dress.
