While the chances of the two of them running into one another might have been slimmed to begin with, it seems like Tom Cruise didn’t want to take any chances. One source close to the Daily Mail even said, “Tom was not there because she was there, and he did not want a run-in.”

During an interview with Vanity Fair in 2013, when asked about the divorce, Tom even said of his ex-wife, “She knows why, and I know why, [we divorced].

She’s the mother of my children, and I wish her well. And I think that you just move on. And I don’t say that lightly. I don’t say that with anything.

Sad,” along with, “More likely he felt why grace this travesty of an awards show with his obvious star power. They may sniff at Maverick but it brought in more dollars than all the other movies.”
