(Newser) – It's been a year since Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, and apparently Cruise is feeling sentimental. A source tells UK magazine Look the actor sent Holmes an "emotional letter" looking to, at the very least, be friends again, Australia's News Network reports. "It's like he's finally recognized that Katie will always be the love of his life," the source says. Even so, "It won't have been an over the top letter—it has been a year and I'm sure Tom will have been aware that Katie wouldn't be interested in running straight back into his arms."

Sources close to Holmes say she was "touched" by the letter, which doesn't sound promising for Cruise. "Tom would no doubt take her back in a second, but I don't think that's what Katie wants," says one. (Just to keep things in perspective, we'll point out that Look is the sort of magazine that also runs headlines like, "Royal Bodyguard Warns: 'Kate Middleton's Baby Is In Danger!'") In other news, Huffington Post notes that it's Cruise's 51st birthday.
