Cruise hoping to find wife number three

Single actor Tom Cruise is holding out hope to find a third wife.

Single actor Tom Cruise is holding out hope to find a third wife.

The Mission: Impossible star is divorced from actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman - and split from Spanish beauty Penelope Cruz in January - but he's still hoping to find wedded bliss.

He tells magazine Los Angeles Confidential, "I'm a romantic. I probably will get married again at some point. Just because things didn't work out with Nic doesn't make me feel that it can't work out for me.

"I guess I have a dark side - getting a little cynical. But I'm really an optimist. I see the cup as half full not half empty."

But while Cruise has a bright outlook for his romantic future, he admits he's still scarred by 2001 collapse of his 11-year marriage to Kidman.

He says: "It was a very painful time, the toughest time I've ever been through in my life, but I have a lot of respect for Nic and I always will. We're in a great place now and we're very protective of our kids."

Before wedding Kidman in 1990, Cruise had a brief three year marriage to Lost in Space star Rogers, which ended the same year.
