Actor Tom Cruise is saying ta-ta to Los Angeles, after nabbing a buyer for the Beverly Hills home he shared with ex-wife Katie Holmes, according to TMZ.

The $40 million sale comes about six months after Cruise said farewell to a Hollywood Hills compound, which he sold to actress Eva Longoria for a mere $11.4 million.

The Beverly Hills property, which Cruise bought in 2007 for $30.5 million, includes standard megastar fare: a 10,000-square-foot mansion with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, tennis court, swimming pool, and a pair of guesthouses. The buyer reportedly is billionaire Leon Black, who founded Apollo Global Management, a private equity firm.

Cruise's next mission impossible is to find a buyer for his 298-acre Telluride, CO, estate that's currently listed for $59 million. The actor spent about 20 years amassing the land, which is roughly the size of Monaco. The estate house is nestled amid rolling meadows and mature trees and overlooks 14,000-foot peaks, the Sotheby's listing says.
