Is George Clooney Dating Tom Cruise’s Ex, Katie Holmes?

Talk about a pow­er­ful celebrity cou­ple. Tom Cruise’s ex-wife, 34-year-old Katie Holmes, has been linked to one of Hollywood’s most eli­gi­ble bach­e­lors, 52-year-old George Clooney.

The word on the celebrity rumor mill is that these two have been friends for years, after meet­ing through her famous ex-husband, and they recently caught up at a din­ner party hosted by a mutual friend. They’ve report­edly gone out on a cou­ple dates since, and Holmes even showed up at the New York pre­miere of Clooney’s new movie Grav­ity, where they shared quite the embrace.

Katie has had a crush on him for years,” an insider told Grazia mag­a­zine. “Katie really has her sights set on him. There is a gen­uine connection.”

A source also added that their May-December rela­tion­ship is still in its very early stages, and that the rumored celebrity cou­ple is just enjoy­ing each other’s com­pany right now. “Katie and George are hav­ing a lot of fun. They are enjoy­ing their new flir­ta­tion. He’s a fun guy with buck­ets of charisma and Katie loves his company.”

If Clooney and Holmes are, in fact, the hottest new celebrity cou­ple, it would def­i­nitely be a step up for her since her six-year mar­riage to Cruise took a seri­ous nose­dive in 2012. How­ever, even though Clooney and Holmes are both sin­gle and seem to get along well, there’s a good chance that this dat­ing news is noth­ing more than a rumor, espe­cially because he report­edly just spent the night with 33-year-old Croa­t­ian model Monika Jakisic.
