Since breaking up with ex-wife Katie Holmes in 2012, actor Tom Cruise has not had any serious love interest that is known of. At least not until now. Since June, the star has been romancing a lady across the pond, and is finally ready to go public with the news.
Cruise, 54, met Holmes while filming “The Mummy” in England this past spring. He took her out for their first date was at the lavish Bourton-on-the-Water, located in a small village two hours outside of London. Since then, they have been spending a lot of quality time together getting to know one another. According to US Weekly, an insider close to Cruise has said that the actor is “serious about this relationship and wants to make it work”.
Details into the identity of the woman who has stolen the “Top Guns” stars heart have not yet been revealed, other than that she is very normal and pretty. Rumors swirl that the two are living inside Cruise’s rental cottage on the outskirts of London, and that the couple often take bike rides together around the area. His sister has also been reported spending time with the new couple. Considering the magnitude of Cruise’s stardom, it is incredible that news of this has not been leaked earlier.
It should come as no surprise that Cruise is being cautious about his latest love interest. In addition to his 2012 divorce from actress Katie Holmes, the actor has been divorced two other times. First in 1990 from Mimi Rogers after only just three years of marriage, and then again from Australian Nicole Kidman. That second marriage lasted from 1990 until 2001, and the couple have two adopted children together.
Tom Cruise’s marriage and subsequent divorce from Katie Holmes was much more dramatic, with reports of the couple hating each other by the end of their relationship. It has even been reported that Cruise would go months at a time without seeing his daughter Suri. Holmes has been linked with actor Jamie Foxx for over three years, and it is rumored that the two are planning a wedding in the near future.
Despite a rocky private life, Cruise’s career continues to soar. He has starred in dozens of blockbuster movies since making his first screen appearance in 1981’s “Taps”, and has had tremendous success with his “Mission: Impossible” franchise of films. He is currently promoting “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back”, the sequel to his 2012 hit “Jack Reacher” yet has made no mention of his girlfriend to the press or interviewers. “The Mummy”, which he was filming when he met his newest love interest, is set to be released next year along with “American Made”.
Tom Cruise has done a fantastic job of keeping his mystery relationship a secret. By not jumping up and down on any couches, or co-starring in any films, he has been given the time to get to know his new girlfriend before the media starts their own scrutiny.
