Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are officially divorced and, while he’s thrown himself into his work to get over the heartbreak, he is still hurting. The actor has been losing a lot of weight ever since his marriage came crumbling down.
He isn’t offering any indication he will stop soon either, the Daily Mail
Now in London to start work on yet another new project, Tom and a group of friends went to the theater. It was the perfect opportunity for the paparazzi to snap his picture.
At the same time, it proved the perfect opportunity for the British tabs (and not only) to remark upon his slimmer physique and overall gaunt appearance.
The aforementioned media outlet even goes as far as to suggest that Tom is showing the results of the heartbreak diet, which is basically a combination of not eating from lack of appetite with a hectic schedule or other unhealthy practices.
“The 50-year-old star looked a shadow of his former self and somewhat gaunt as he was spotted arriving at a production of William Shakespeare's Richard III at the Globe Theatre in London over the weekend,” the Mail writes.
“Wearing a fitted white T-shirt and indigo jeans, the Vanilla Sky actor appears to have lost several more pounds from his frame,” the tab goes on to say.
“While he still has his action man muscles, his figure is much more slimline, which begs the question as to whether Tom is yet another victim of the heartbreak diet. While he had his famous smile plastered across his face, the actor also appeared exhausted,” the publication notes.
Rumors that Tom might be putting his health at risk by working too much and not taking proper care of himself to forget about the pain from the divorce first emerged late last month, also in the British press.
Unnamed sources told the tab that Tom had lost 14 pounds (6.3 kg) in just 3 weeks
by burying himself in his work and not eating right.
