Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes: Star Trek Treat

Tom Cruise and wife Katie Holmes sign autographs for fans at the premiere of Star Trek at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

Looks like this couple skipped out on the red carpet!

According to the National Enquirer, Tom has offered to let Katie‘s recently widowed sister Tammy and her children move into their Beverly Hills mansion. Katie‘s brother-in-law, 48-year-old Jeff Fretti, died of a heart attack on April 12.

Katie was so worried and upset for Tammy,” an insider reveals. “They are really close, and Katie wanted to help any way she could. Then Tom came up with the idea of inviting Tammy and the boys to live with them. It meant Katie could keep a close watch on her sister and help her through this tough time. Tom really was a savior. He wants Katie to be happy, and he knew this would make it so much easier for her.”

Pictured below: Katie visiting the Disney Studios in Hollywood on Friday morning (May 1).
