Does Tom Cruise Have a New Young, Famous Girlfriend?

Sugar Daddy Tom Cruise Have New Young GirlfriendTom Cruise has sup­pos­edly been try­ing to get back into the dat­ing game since his May-December mar­riage to Katie Holmes came crash­ing down. There were even reports that the church of Sci­en­tol­ogy was audi­tion­ing young women for Cruise in hopes that one of them would be wor­thy enough to be his next wife. But the 51-year-old actor may have found a suit­able match all on his own.

Cruise is report­edly dat­ing, or has at least gone out on a few dates, with 33-year-old Orange is the New Black actress Laura Pre­pon, whom you might also rec­og­nize from her role as Donna on the tele­vi­sion series That ‘70s Show. Accord­ing to insid­ers, Cruise has “always been fas­ci­nated by her” and finally decided to take the plunge and ask her out.

The rumored celebrity cou­ple enjoyed a roman­tic din­ner in L.A. after Cruise report­edly sent a vin­tage car to pick her up. He also stocked the table with a vin­tage bot­tle of wine. “It’s clear Tom is smit­ten and after the date he was on cloud nine,” said a source. The celebrity cou­ple has already gone on their sec­ond date appar­ently, and she even accom­pa­nied him to a din­ner party at the home of fel­low sci­en­tol­o­gist John Travolta.

Despite their 18-year age dif­fer­ence, Cruise and Pre­pon seem to be hit­ting it off quite well, and since they’re both prac­tic­ing Sci­en­tol­o­gists and have been part of the same social cir­cle for years, they already have a lot in com­mon. “[Tom] is the hap­pi­est he has been since his divorce from Katie,” noted the insider.

What do you think: Do Tom Cruise and Laura Pre­pon make a good celebrity couple?
