He was left out in the cold — literally.
A day after Tom Cruise was dumped by wife Katie Holmes, the "Mission: Impossible" star was snapped flying over Iceland in a helicopter, en route to a movie shoot.
The 49-year-old actor wore a pair of aviator shades as he took off in a private helicopter from Reykjavik today. Cruise is in Iceland filming his new movie, "Oblivion," his rep said yesterday.
It is the first time the star has been seen in public since Holmes filed to end their 5 1/2-year marriage and seek sole custody of the couple's 6-year-old daughter, Suri, Thursday.
Meanwhile, a fight may be brewing over where the divorce takes place. While Holmes filed for divorce in Manhattan — the couple own a townhouse on West 12th Street — RadarOnline reports Cruise will file for divorce in California, where he is expected to have an easier time getting joint custody of Suri.
"There is absolutely no way that he is going let Katie have sole custody," a source told the celebrity-gossip website. "The lines are being drawn, and this is going shape up to be a very contentious custody battle."
Holmes, 33, allegedly filed for divorce because she didn't want her Scientologist hubby’s kooky “religion” or his pals to have any part in Suri’s upbringing or education now that she’s old enough to start school.
Cruise and Holmes were wed in a lavish ceremony at an Italian castle on Nov. 28, 2006.
This is the third marriage Cruise has seen go down in flames. His first marriage was to actress Mimi Rogers. It, too, was wrecked by his Scientology ties and ended in 1990 after three years.
Rogers, 56, told People magazine Cruise wanted to become a Scientology monk and he “thought he had to be celibate to maintain the purity of his instrument, whereas I like to play mine from time to time.”
Cruise was then married to Nicole Kidman, 45. That 11-year union ended in 2001..
