Are Tom Cruise & Sandra Bullock circling each other as a ‘natural love match’?

Tom Cruise

It’s time to play one of my favorite games: Who will the tabloids set Tom Cruise up with next? The last lucky lady to be Tom’s rumored love interest was his Mission: Impossible 5 co-star, Rebecca Ferguson. Tom was said to be “smitten” with her because she looked nothing so much like Nicole Kidman. Earlier this year, Page Six set up Tom with fellow Scientologist Laura Prepon after Elisabeth Moss rumors fizzled out.

I’m still a bit miffed that Tom didn’t give Julianne Hough a call, but that may have been too obvious. Tom figured out how everyone makes fun of him for marrying increasingly younger women. Tom’s been single for over two years, and it must be driving him crazy. Vanity Fair ruined his game with the wife-audition exposé (which was horrifying in its detail). So Tom chilled. He waited.

The Enquirer says Tom’s ready to make his move … with an equal this time. The tabloid points towards some smiley photos of Tom meeting Sandra Bullock at the 2010 Golden Globes. They were both married at the time, and now they’re both single. Obviously, they’ll be doing it soon. This story is hilarious:

Pals of Tom Cruise and Sandra Bullock are trying to set the two up for romance in what may be Hollywood’s hottest love new love match!

Sources have told the National Enquirer that the two movie superstars were introduced at the 2009 Golden Globes, but both were married.

“When they met, Tom and Sandy couldn’t stop beaming at each other,” an insider said. “there was definitely a spark — but neither ever thought their marriages would fizzle out. Now there’s no one special for either of them. It’s a natural love match.”

A year after meeting Tom, Sandra, now 50, suffered a bitter 2010 divorce from bad boy Jesse James when it was revealed he was a serial cheater. She also adopted her son Louis, creating a beautiful new life as a single mom.

Meanwhile, Tom, 52, hasn’t been able to find love since his marriage to Katie Holmes collapsed in 2012.

Added the insider: “The fact is, Tom really wants to be in a relationship again, and the consensus among their mutual pals is that Sandra would be perfect for him.

“She’s not a Scientologist, but she’s gorgeous and funny and they both love parenting. There’s no question her son Louis and his little girl Suri would become fast friends.

“They both have money and well-established careers, so there’d be no jealousy over who’s the bigger star. It would be a match made in heaven.”

[From Enquirer, print edition, October 27, 2014]

I think the Enquirer meant to say, “a match made in Xenu.” Nonononono.

This story can’t be true. I mean, maybe it’s true that Tom’s people are putting out tabloid feelers. The CO$ could be “auditioning” Sandra as an unofficial candidate without even talking to her. Or maybe the Enquirer is just making sh-t up.

Oh well. The story was fun to read. I’m still wondering whatever happened to Sandra and Chris Evans’ supposed chemistry. I guess they never happened. Double dang.

    She is way too much woman for him.

  2. Lucy2 says:

    No no no no no!

    Of course he couldn’t stop “beaming ” at her. He was in public mode, where all he does his grin like a maniac.

    • Tracy says:

      So creepy

    • fairyvexed says:

      Yeah, he “beams” like that Death Star tractor beam. Run, Sandy! You’ve already been screwed over by one Nazi, you don’t need a Xenu too!

      • gefeylich says:

        This “item” is pure fantasy from Tom’s Co$ PR machine. Why in the world would Bullock need to associate with him? She has her own fame, money, popularity with the public, approbation from her peers, respect – why would she jeopardize it to hook up with a crazy cult member whose star is rapidly fading? Even if she did like him (and I highly doubt that), every handler she’s ever had would do a physical body block on her to keep her away from him. And they’d be right to do it!

        Sorry; he’s poison now, and the only women who would enter willingly into his bearding compacts are starlets with nothing to lose and who want the payout in the end.

    • minx says:

      Has no one ever told him that his perpetual grin is creepy and off putting? Guess not.

  3. PunkyMomma says:

    @CB – thanks for the morning laughs.

  4. Pixi says:

    I can’t see Sandra putting up with him or his Xenu dramz. I’ll eat my shoe if this happens.

  5. Anne de Vries says:

    No no no no no no. I refuse to believe Sandra would have anything to do with that madhouse. The reason Tom Cruise looked for somebody young and ‘aspiring’ or at the beginning of her career was that they would be starstruck and inpressionable. And those things are vital for getting somebody to buy into the $cientology bullshit.
    And make no mistake: it is absolutely impossible for Cruise to ‘just date’ somebody. Any partner of his would be brought into Co$ and expected to toe the line. They might be more subtle with it now than they were with Katie Holmes, because the world is watching and a lot more willing to believe how nuts Co$ is, but it would still happen.

  6. Louise says:

    She’s way too tall for his squat little frame.

  7. L says:


    As for Louis and Suri getting along-when’s the last time he ever spent time with his daughter? It’s been over a year or something right? That would not fly with sandy at all

    • doofus says:

      that’s the part that stuck out for me, too.

      when was the last time he saw Suri? You KNOW that he’d get some kind of photo op if he were spending any time with her to put the “I’m such a great dad/there is no such thing as ‘disconnect’ in $cientology” out there.

    • McCall says:

      you mean a year since you saw pictures . We have no idea how much time they spend or not.
      After the big mess of when he took her to disney I think they keep it quite. Even Katie mentioned once they do see each other. There are lots of celebs that I don’t see pictures of them with their kids but I don’t assume it means they don’t see them.

      • CF98 says:

        When has Katie ever mentioned Tom/Suri see each other. Because she has never mentioned Tom at all since their divorce.

    • idsmith says:

      I wondered about that too. We never see pics of him and Suri, but when he was with Katie he was all too happy to parade Suri around for the paps. All.the.Time. Now though…nothing. He suddenly decided his daughter was to be private? I’m doubtful. If he does see her, there are no photos because he doesn’t want the other scientologists to know about it and cry foul. According to COS Suri is now to be shunned because she’s not in the church. Other members are forced to distance themselves from non-cos members. So, Tom can’t be SEEN with Suri, but can perhaps see her privately?

      • McCall says:

        No actually I think it’s only those that talk negatively about the church/cult that are “sp’s”…not an 8 year old.

      • Charlotte says:

        McCall, you are incorrect. If you want to educate yourself on it, The Underground Bunker is a great resource. Suri can absolutely be an SP, and is definitely a PTS.

        If TC is seeing Suri, he’s doing it on the down-low. Not just to stop us keeping track of the time he spends with her, but because so many Co$ members have been forced to disconnect from their families – including young children – because they left with one parent and another stayed in. If TC was still allowed to see Suri, there would be too much chance of the final few members waking up through their outrage of the unfair double-standards.

      • Anne says:

        Maybe he has been burned by the negative publicity and has just learned to keep his family life and relationship with his daughter PRIVATE.

  8. honey says:

    He needs to go back to the shire and leave my beloved Sandy alone!

  9. NewWester says:

    I thought Tom was not permitted to see Suri because of church rules? Something to do with Katie and her leaving the church

  10. Sixer says:

    Perhaps he could find a British socialite in a job with cachet? Can’t be a lawyer: that one’s done. Um… the scion of a horse racing dynasty? A Doctor Without Borders?

    • NewWester says:

      He likes to show his pearly whites. So maybe a dentist or an heiress to a toothpaste or teeth whitening fortune?

    • sigh((s)) says:

      A doctor has entirely too many brain cells that would have to be destroyed by the e-meter.

  11. Chris says:

    John Travolta and Tom Cruise. Cruvolta.

  12. SayWhat says:

    If I look half as good as Sandy by the time I’m 50, I’ll be happy. Beautiful.

  13. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I would hate that she’d even look at him–he basically abandoned his last kid. What would make him treat her kid any better? He’s all ME ME WORK ME WORK ME ME.

  14. Triple Cardinal says:

    This is such nonsense on so many levels. A woman as independent and self-directed as Bullock wouldn’t tolerate Cruises’s need to micro-manage. Look at how quickly she dumped James and her marriage when news of his betrayal came out. She’s not Co$ and she’s not weak.

    While I would like to see them work together, there’s no chance they’d ever get involved.

    • Kiddo says:

      I think this is the semi-yearly National Enquirer special of, “How can we bust Tom Cruise’s balls, in the most absurd way ever?”. That, or their couple-pairing algorithms are about as useful and accurate as any online dating service.

      • fairyvexed says:

        There’s a picture of him SALUTING David Miscavige in one of the linked articles. SALUTUNG. This was apparently before he got awarded the “Freedom Medal of Honor” or something. The military Medal Of Honor had not been awarded to a living person in years, until a recent spate of people who actually survived. That right there, taking THAT name and using the salute? That’s enough to make me hate the sawed-off little mindf–ker right there.

        He’s a weak, craven little man who wouldn’t be anything without his bully church behind him. And the fact is, even with it….he’s not much at all.

      • Kiddo says:

        Tom being a Whackjob and the Enquirer busting his chops are not mutually exclusive themes.

  15. Jem says:

    This story is probably BS; but then again Sandra has been known to keep shady company (Jesse; Handler…) Just sayin, Im sure she’s nice but you never know about some people and how they like thier strange

  16. Nene says:

    If this story is credible? Then, it’s truly typical of Hollywood ; stars ‘hooking up’ to beard each other while their unaware fans fuss about them.

  17. kri says:

    My keyboard just took it like a champ when I doused it with my emergency flask of holy water. Good to know for when that Kris/ Kanye Holiday Sex Tape comes out.

  18. Somenestolemyname says:

    Damn this would be so much fun to watch. The photo ops, Sandy humanising him.
    I would absolutely be enthralled by every second of it. Bring it on, Bullock/Cruise a new megawatt power couple. Yes, yes so much the PR people can do with this and the tabloid fun would be endless. Bring it on! :)

  19. jinni says:

    If they get together, 2014 will go down as the year of WTF celeb pairing.

  20. Ag says:

    gross AND creepy.

  21. Luciana says:

    Gossip wise they would make a great couple. In reality? Not so much. Tom needs to stay away from women in general at least until he leaves that cult.

  22. INeedANap says:

    I’ll be wearing black today to mourn the loss of Sandy and Cap’s love. *sigh*

    And I am perversely glad Cruise is having so much trouble finding a lady, it means the truth about Co$ is coming out!

  23. Pri says:

    NO no no no no! This of all things can’t be happening! I nearly spat my tea out reading the headlines. Don’t even want to read the article.I love Sandy and that is why please God, don’t let this be true. Please.

  24. timetokill says:

    If they decide to do a little “coupling” it won’t be anything more than a Hollywood hoax. Plus, one of my dorm buds from college lives near Austin and is a lesbian. She said it’s really no secret in their circles that Sandra prefers women.

    IF she does sell out and enter into a pretend relationship with Tom Cruise, I will lose all respect for her. However, I seriously doubt she’d agree to it.

    No “love match here” – move along, people.

    • Wren33 says:

      If she really were a lesbian, why would she get with that Nazi douche? That just screams lust match to me.

      • timetokill says:

        Yes! You are right . . . his lust for OTHER women (who would have sex with him).

      • InvaderTak says:

        Yeah that match doesn’t make sense if she were gay. Bi is more likely. There was no reason for her to marry that guy if there wasn’t something there at one point. If she wanted a regular guy to fake a marriage with why go with him? And I don’t buy it that she didn’t know about his Nazi artifact collection.

    • ataylor says:

      I’ve heard that little nugget too. It may just be that Sandra is Bi or only goes gay away from they prying eyes of Hollywood? It happens more often than not with closeted and semi-closeted actors.

  25. KinChicago says:

    Run Sandra! Take your child and run!!!!!

  26. Somenestolemyname says:

    Celebitchy would crash.

  27. Jackson says:

    I cannot be the only one who cringes when I read the phrase ‘love match.’ Ugh. Who talks like that?? Literally the only two times I ever hear that phrase is in tennis where it’s acceptable, and in cheesy tabloid stories.

  28. HughJass says:

    I’ll say something nice: at least TC is finally interested in someone age-appropriate.

    My other thought: Run, Sandra, run!

  29. RedWeatherTiger says:

    Sandra’s taste in men has been questionable in the past, but if she ever went Cruising, I would lose **all** respect for her. And I LOVE Sandra.

  30. Arya Martell says:

    Won’t happen unless Tom is distancing himself from Co$.

  31. Ginger says:

    I was not aware of the Sandra Bullock gay rumors…learn something new every day!

  32. Anon says:

    Little Louis does not need Tom Cruise in his life. Sandra must be rolling her eyes on this one, after she stopped laughing.

  33. susan says:

    Suri and Louis? want to bet how long it’s been since TC has actually seen his kid? I’m betting a looooong time.

  34. littlestar says:

    I know I’m in the minority here, but I think it would actually be interesting if these two started dating!!! Think about it!

  35. ataylor says:

    This article is full of b.s. Tom and Sandra did not meet in 2009s. They go way back…WAY back…even before Tom was still “happily married” to Nicole. Sandra mentioned it herself during her Oscar speech, recalling a prank George Clooney and Tom Cruise pulled on her involving a swimming pool and Nicole Kidman handing her a towel. This “batch” of A list middle aged actors all started their careers around the same time frame in the early to mid 80s and achived fame ALMOST around the same time during the early 90s. Hollywood was a much smaller and insular community than it is now. Most at one point shared agents, acting coaches and even headshot photographers and ran into each other frequently during auditions. This group KNOWS each other (and their secrets). TRUST

  36. lunchcoma says:

    Oh, please. He likes them younger and less successful, and her bad choices in men tend to veer in a different direction. I don’t even see these two being close friends.

  37. holly hobby says:

    Doubt this is true because Sandy isn’t his type. Also she seems to like hang loose guys (McConaughy & Ryan Gosling). I doubt she’s interested in a poser.

  38. meow says:

    All that Sandy B stuff is nonsense. The truth is TC is with me!
    I don’t care about the Scientology junk -whatever. He is handsome, fine actor, a good father and
    very professional. I am perfectly willing to overlook that Death Star beam thing.

  39. Common sense anyone? says:

    One good beard deserves another I guess…

  40. Longhorn says:

    I so do NOT believe this story. But I love to read Tom Cruise gossip. He’s such a controlling little weirdo with a wacko best friend (CO$). He’s endless entertainment – and I’m not talking about his movies either

  41. Trashaddict says:

    I propose a new theoretical COS-conscious coupling: Tommy-Girl and J-Lo. Now THAT has a ring to it. Of course, he’ll have to get taller shoe lifts…..

  42. jwoolman says:

    Oh, my. Pray for little Louis.

  43. Somenestolemyname says:

    It didn’t hurt Penelope Cruz when she dated him.
    I don’t think it would hurt Sandy’s image.

    • Jaded says:

      Penelope Cruz was not known in the US at that point so it was advantageous for her to have a relationship with a mega-star like Cruise. He really helped her get a foothold in the Hollywood film world, plus he wasn’t known as a Scientologist lunatic at that point, he was pretty quiet about it.

      • Somenestolemyname says:

        Penelope was known, but she wasn’t a Star and as far as Scientology ,Tom has been known for his Scientology for DECADES.

        I still don’t think it would hurt Sandra. Sandra is well liked. I don’t think dating Tom would change that.
        I actually think to the general public who doesn’t really read about celebrity gossip , Tom Cruise is probably liked. That might be why he’s still such a Huge star.

  44. LAK says:

    Run Sandra Run!!

  45. siri says:

    I don’t think there is truth to this, however, I’m always surprised that so many people adore Sandra Bullock. I don’t find her overly sympathetic, although she always acts like the girl next door. I woudn’t be surprised to hear she’s quite foul-mouthed, and her choice of men is at least questionable. So is her friendship with Handler. So there might be more to it than what meets the eye. As for Cruise, I don’t think he’s a bad guy, and I definitely don’t think he’s gay. But that Scientology thing is disturbing- what does he gain from that- he can’t even have a normal love&family life? My impression is that Cruise, like Clooney, is rather desinterested in a ‘normal’ family life, or a truly intimate relationship with a woman. Or unable to create that, so he rather works like crazy, or drives fast cares. But in order to not raise any questions, they go for it anyway.

  46. minx says:

    I’m not really buying this story, but it’s still entertaining.

  47. lisa2 says:

    Tom is weird. He has said that he is not focused in dating but work

    I know this not the popular opinion.. but I find Sandy a bit weird too. Almost as asexual as Tom
