Pictures of Tom Cruise from last month have shown what the strain of the collapse of his marriage to Katie Holmes has had on him, as he had shed 14 lbs.
Pictured on July 10 on the set of Oblivion 2, Tom Cruise, 50, looked quite beefed out compared to slim figure he cut three weeks later on July 28 in Malibu having lunch with his lawyer.
It has been reported that since Tom Cruise got word of Katie Holmes’ decision he has dived deeper into work, and is ignoring concern from his family members.
Speaking to Grazia a source said: “Tom’s friends and family have urged him to take a break, but he has brushed off their concern.
“He is refusing to slow down and is trying to soldier on. He doesn’t seem to be himself. He hasn’t been working out like he normally does and doesn’t appear to be eating well at all. His clothes just hang off him.”
The source also told the magazine: “His way of dealing with this is to throw himself into his work, but as a result he’s not looking after himself, and he risks cutting himself off from people who care about him and want to make sure he’s OK.”
Last week Wednesday, removal trucks were spotted at the Bel Air mansion that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes shared when they were married.
The movers were reportedly taking her belongings and moving them to an undisclosed storage unit.
It was the latest sign that the former Dawson Creek actress is moving on with her life following her shock split from the Hollywood superstar.
Katie Holmes lodged the legal papers in June, citing “irreconcilable differences” for the split and requesting sole legal custody and “primary residential custody” of Suri – the couple’s six-year-old daughter.
They released a joint statement last month, saying: “We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests.
“We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents.”
