After rumours that their marriage is on the rocks, TomKat hit back with a PDA

Just three months ago Tom Cruise was dangling on a wire from the world’s tallest building filming breathtaking sequences for Mission: Impossible 4.

And while Tom is a man who prides himself on doing his own stunts, are his latest damage control’ PDAs with wife Katie Holmes his most successful stunts yet?

For an über-A-list couple, Katie, 32, and Tom, 48, have been flying under the radar for a while now but when they spent their November wedding anniversary in different countries, a US tabloid came out claiming on its front page that the marriage was over – something that Tom and Katie strongly deny.

As they stepped out together over Christmas the pair went to great lengths to put on a united front – so much so that it made us feel a little bit nauseous.

We’d usually be thinking get a room’ but this time it all looked a bit too staged.

While Tom’s the consummate performer in public, for Katie the happy starlet smile she wore in the early days of the relationship seems to have gone.

When she was seen out with Tom on her birthday last month she looked sadder than a soggy cat.

According to body language expert Judi James, when a celeb couple in trouble sets out to prove the doom-mongers wrong, their body language signals are often overplayed: the smiles are too wide and the smooching gestures are cringeworthy.

Perhaps all is not perfect chez TomKat
