American movie actor Chris Klien has opened up about his breakup with Holmes. The “American Pie’ actor has revealed that his ex finance Katie Holmes had contacted him to tell him all about her romance with Tom Cruise so he wouldn’t learn about the relationship in the tabloids.
The star did date Holmes back in 2000 and proposed three years later, but the relationship ended around one year later in 2005 that’s when the couple parted ways.
In a candid new interview with People magazine, Klein says, “We found comfort in one another… We had a similar upbringing and we were going through the same experience (in Hollywood). As the teenage craze came to an end, we found that our relationship was changing as well.
“From my side there was a lot of denial and fear about the future. It ended as amicably as these things can end.”
“When we were breaking up, we kept it to ourselves for a while. It looked like it was Katie and Chris together and two seconds later Katie and Tom together, but that’s ridiculously compressed… Kate was incredibly respectful about the decision she was making to move on (with Cruise).
“She called and said, ‘Listen I want you to know before you see it anywhere else.’”
Homes and Cruise did meet in April, 2005, and were engaged two months later. The couple welcomed a daughter Suri in 2006 and married the same year.
