Rogers wishes 'the best' for Cruise and Holmes

Tom Cruise's ex-wife Mimi Rogers wishes "the best" for him and Katie Holmes.

The 56-year-old actress - who was married to 'Mission Impossible' star Tom from 1987 to 1990 - has expressed her sincere feelings of sympathy towards her ex-husband and his third wife Katie over their recent split.

Mimi told US Weekly: "I wish them both the best. There's not much else to say.

"I really do, though. I wish them the best."

Speaking at the New York premiere of bittersweet romantic comedy 'Hope Springs' last night, she reflected on what makes a marriage work and the importance of friendship.

Mimi explained: "I think marriage is hard work no matter what. I think it's about first and foremost being great friends."

Hollywood couple Katie and Tom - who have six-year-old Suri together - split in June after five years together when the former 'Dawson's Creek' star filed for divorce.

Katie has since been granted sole custody of their daughter.

The 33-year-old beauty reportedly sought comfort in Tom's second wife Nicole Kidman - who has two adopted children, Isabella, 19, and Connor, 17, with Tom - and has been friends with Katie since 2006.

A source said at the time: "She has been a private friend not many people know about. She told Katie her life is great now and she has no regrets."
