Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise

Married: November 18, 2006
What sparked Tom Cruise’s famous couch jump for joy on Oprah Winfrey's show in 2005? It was his burgeoning relationship with Dawson's Creek alum Katie Holmes, whom he had met earlier that year after reportedly asking his agent to call her publicist and arrange a meeting. The two hit it off -- they talked for three hours -- and he asked her out on a date that included an arrival at her house in a limo filled with chocolate and flowers before whisking her off to a romantic dinner aboard his private jet. Daughter Suri and a star-studded Italian wedding soon followed. Despite years of ensuing media speculation about the state of their affair, Holmes maintains she's happy with her "exciting" life. "Tom's as big at home as he is on the movie screen. He's so passionate about everything, whatever he's doing," she told Marie Claire magazine last year. "It's inspiring and it's fun. It's an amazing life, but we always remind ourselves of how incredibly lucky we are."
