Katie Holmes seems to have emerged a happier, far more stylish woman from her divorce from Tom Cruise but not the same can be said about him. If anything, he's losing weight, with reports saying friends are worried he's not taking proper care of himself.It must be a well known fact that Katie totally surprised Tom with the divorce filing, at least according to reports.
Shocked as he was, though, he did not allow himself time to grieve, opting instead to bury himself in his work as a means to forget about the drama at home.
Now, sources are telling the British tabs that he's been working so hard and keeping so busy that he may actually be neglecting his health, the Daily Mail informs.
Tom is now 14 pounds (6.3 kg) thinner than he was 3 weeks ago and it's all down to the Katie Holmes situation, insiders believe.
Recent photos of the actor seem to confirm that he's lost some weight but, of course, whether it's down to heartbreak or just diet for a new movie role is a matter of speculation at this point.
Either way, unnamed tipsters claim friends and family are concerned that Tom is neglecting his health in his desperate attempt at keeping Katie out of his mind by working extra hours.
“Tom's friends and family have urged him to take a break, but he has brushed off their concern,” a well-placed source explains.
“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,” adds the insider.
Tom has always dealt with tough situations like this, by burying himself in his work, and this time is clearly no different.
“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,” the insider further notes.
