Someone finally asked Tom Cruise about his relatively sudden divorce from Katie Holmes, and he was, to quote Blanche Devereaux, "stunned -- just stunned."

Guesting on a German talk show, Cruise was asked about the divorce, and he apparently didn't get any premonitions from Xenu about it or anything.

“I did not expect that,” Tom admitted (quotes via Radar Online).

Refresher: Holmes filed for divorce a few days before Cruise turned 50, and a settlement was hashed out in record time that granted her custody of Suri and giving Cruise visitation rights.

Cruise said the split left him with “an incredible amount of time to reflect."

“Life is a challenge,” he sighed. “To be 50 and have experiences and think you have everything under control and then it hits you— that’s what life is … Life is tragicomic. You need a certain sense of humor.”

Except about being 'Trapped in the Closet' on 'South Park.' That's never funny.
