Tom Cruise loves Scientology.
This is not a press-stopping statement, as the actor recently came out and referred to the religion as special and beautiful.
But a new report claims Cruise finds something else special and beautiful as well.
Or someone else, we ought to say: yup, Tom Cruise has a girlfriend!
And it’s allegedly serious!
According to Us Weekly, Cruise has been “romancing a British woman” for several months.
He is yet to jump on any talk show’s couch about her, so not many details about the relationship or the Tom Cruise girlfriend are known at the moment.
Heck, we’re not even sure of her name.
But the tabloid claims that Cruise and this unidentified new lover early met in London in early June when he was filming The Mummy.
The two reportedly went on a date at that time to Bourton-on-the-Water, an idyllic village in the Cotswolds, two hours outside the city
Of course, some Tom Cruise critics may have difficulty believing this story.
It is a long-held stance by many that Cruise only dates women selected for him by The Church of Scientology. There’s been talk of girlfriend auditions and plenty of chatter over how his entire marriage to Katie Holmes was a set-up.
But this Us Weekly cover story would have us believe otherwise.
It claims that Cruise’s British girlfriend is “very normal and pretty” and has taken to living with the Jack Reacher: Never Go Back star at his rental cottage on the outskirts of London.
“They go on bike rides through the countryside. Sometimes Tom’s sister would join them,” an anonymous insider tells the magazine.
That sounds very sweet. But are you buying it?
Cruise is very public when it comes to selling his movies and promoting them on various talk shows. He’s happy to discuss his professional life.
But good luck trying to get him open up about anything personal, such as whether he’s seen Suri any time in the last three years.
It’s been over four years since Cruise split from Katie Holmes and this Us Weekly source says he is eager to make his latest romance last.
“He’s serious about this relationship and wants to make it work,” claims the tabloid insider. “Tom wants some companionship.”
Awww! That’s so sweet! Also pretty sad and sort of scary if the Church of Scientology really is playing any kind of role in Cruise’s love life.
But still. There’s something sweet about a mega superstar such as Tom Cruise just wanting someone to go on a bike ride with, isn’t there?
And there’s something hilarious about Cruise recreating scenes from his many iconic movies alongside James Corden on television.
