Is Tom Cruise ‘flirting’ with & crushing on his 22 year old assistant?

Tom Cruise

Have you seen the new photos of Tom Cruise on the set of Mission: Impossible 5? He’s 52 years old and was papped clinging to the side of a military plane in motion. Tom always has to do everything bigger and better than everyone else. He can’t even let a stuntman do the flashy stuff for him. Tom has to prove himself to be the bravest action star ever. That’s fine, but it’s still crazy.

I usually have so much fun talking about the tabloid matchmaking sessions for Tom. The tabs recently set him up with Sandra Bullock and his MI5 co-star, Rebecca Ferguson. Tom is forever “smitten” with all of the ladies in the Tom Cruise mad lib adventure. The couch jumper is so over the top when he falls in love, so these stories are usually worth a few chuckles. The most recent rumors have been dumb. Something about a “hookup” with Lindsay Lohan? Both sides shut that gossip down real fast. And this week, lucky Miranda Kerr is the rumored recipient of Tom’s advances. Hahaha. Not true. This week’s issue of Us Weekly says Tom is crushing hard on his assistant. Cue the MI theme music:

Tom Cruise has never minded long hours on set. But the actor, 52, is relishing every second on Mission: Impossible 5 because, according to a set source, he’s got a crush on his 22-year-old assistant, Emily! “He’s always flirting iwth her,” the source tells Hot Stuff. “Most people on the film have noticed how into her he is.”

The consummate pro, who divorced Katie Holmes two years ago, has decided to complete this Mission before taking things further with the Brit. “He’s already asked Emily to go out to dinner with him, on a date, when they’re done shooting,” says the insider on the flick, which has been in production in Europe and Africa since August. Adds the source, “I’ve never seen him crush on anyone so hard!”

[From Us Weekly, print edition, November 17, 2014]

The Miranda and Lindsay stories are ridiculous of course. This story about the assistant could also be made up, but it could be true. I think Tom falls in love all of the time. He’s forever “smitten,” and only being in a relationship saves him from acting like a fool in front of women. Tom hates being single, and these rumors aren’t going to stop until he finds a new official girlfriend.

    The Daily Mail is reporting that he is seeing Flynn Kerr Bloom’s mommy, Miranda.

    • lunchcoma says:

      I was thinking that sounds like a good match – she’s taller than him and likes money and fame and apparently doesn’t care about much else – but then I remembered she had a little boy. I’ll hope against them being together, because that poor kid doesn’t deserve to get sucked into Scientology.

  2. aims says:

    Tom does hate being single. Props to any women out there that takes him on. Life is way to short for that madness.

  3. Kaye says:

    That is the first time I’ve looked at his shoes without instantly thinking, “Lifts!” I wonder if he’s found a better manufacturer or whether he’s given up his quest to seem taller.

    • Soporificat says:

      Hehe, usually I am the naive one who is like, “what do you mean they had plastic surgery?!” or whatever –but even I can tell that those are lifts.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        You can tell they are lifts because he’s walking like a woman in high heels!

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Haha, we’re soulsisters. Unless it’s super obvious, I can’t tell (and am one of the few who thinks Nicole Kidman looks gorgeous still with the frozen face). But YES–when I was looking at the pics of Tommy-Boy, I thought ‘Damn, his lifts are super obvious”

  4. Kaboom says:

    They just don’t have male stuntmen that size so he has to do it himself.

  5. Abbott says:

    No way Miranda Kerr is seeing Tom Cruise. Miranda’s side pieces all have one thing in common: they’re all very…. tall.

  6. Ag says:

    emily, you in danger, girl!

  7. Birdix says:

    For a 52-year old man, he’s got a great head of hair.

  8. yawn says:

    why do some people believe everything they put in print. Every week the tabloids try and push him with someone else. It was rebecca, then the oitnb girl who he doesn’t even know they both said. then sandra, then lindsay, then miranda now this intern all in a few months time. Pretty sure it’s all bs.

    • Mira says:

      I think because Tom Cruise wants it in print. Or David Miscavige.

      • yawn says:

        Doubt it. Lindsay? that is not good pr.I think the tabs just pull things out of their butts most times. Not everything is pr plants. They need to fill inches of space on their sites and in their magazines.

      • Mira says:


        Actually, it would be a GREAT PR move for Lindsay. Tom could introduce her to the church, it would be her savior, she’d have a career makeover and say how the church saved her. Pretty sure Lindsay would be on board with that idea. Or any idea.

  9. megan says:

    A 22 year old sounds about right – he keeps picking them younger and younger. A control issue, perhaps?

    • yawn says:

      Mimi was older then he was, isnt she? Katie was almost 30 by the time they married. I think it was 17 year difference. Not that old by Hollywood terms. Many are like 20plus years. Michael Douglas/CZJ and isn’t Amber over 20 years younger then Johnny?

  10. Talie says:

    Makes sense… only a 20-something yr old would be naive enough to be impressed by all the money and show he can put on.

  11. iceanna says:

    I don’t believe for one second he is strapped to a plane in flight.
    Gimme a close up with a telescopic lens.

  12. argon says:

    Tom is in his 50s, I don’t think he would go after a 22 year old . He would get major criticism for that. Besides, the stories about Lindsay Lohan and Miranda Kerr seem like lies from their PR teams. Why would Tom Cruise, one of biggest stars in Hollywood want to date a washed-up former child star and a C list model who did Bieber ?

  13. lucy2 says:

    I wonder if he actually does fall in love, or if he’s just always looking for some pretty young thing to cart around to premieres and combat the rumors?

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      Bingo! We have a winner 😉

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      I always thought he liiked the older brunettes like his first wife Mimi Rogers.I never thought he was gay but just asexuel

      • Dara says:

        Agree 100% @i’m french. I’m trying to think of a movie where he had good sexual chemistry with any of his romantic leads…but nothing really comes to mind. And I don’t think it’s because he’s gay. For love scenes, it’s not about feeling desire for your co-star specifically, but just desire in general and I never got that vibe from Tom. Most actors (gay, straight, what have you) can manufacture sexual chemistry with a bowl of spaghetti if the role requires, so it always struck me as odd that Tom, who I think is a good actor with great charisma, just never seemed to manage it onscreen. Even in Eyes Wide Shut, where he was acting opposite his then-wife, their love scenes felt flat to me.

  14. Angie says:

    Well I, for one, don’t believe this for one second! Tom Cruise would never, ever do something like this – EVER. He probably has a crew of people scrutinizing her from head to toe!

    Cooking abilities – check
    Sexual preferences – check
    Weight issues – check
    Mental issues – check
    Capability of bearing children and caring for children – check
    Am I missing something ?

  15. Jag says:

    All that money and access to the finest chefs, food, and personal trainers – yet he can’t keep his moobs under control. tsk tsk

  16. Jem says:

    Actually he and Lindsay make alot of sense. She has (in)fam(y) already, and he likes established “starlets” (stretching that with LiLo, I know, but some creative PR could make it work). She doens’t give a damn about her career – she just wants the attention; he just wants the career, he’s all about the career. She’s a natural born liar, and will keep his secrets. Even if she doens’t, nobody believes anything she says anyway. And as long as he gives her plenty of spending money and keeps the booze flowing, she’ll do what she’s told – including joining his religion, filing her teeth down, auditing, etc. And as a bonus, she can beat down a b*tch if need be for the cult, because she has lots of practice at that. And finally, if he tires of her and gets rid of her Scientology-style, nobody will miss her or care. I think they may be the perfect match.

    Does Emily have a penis?

    • allheavens says:


      That made my soda go up my nose. LOL!

      Tommy needs to stop and reflect, you know without a mirror.

      He’s 52, three marriages behind him; the days of his career are also behind him; he has three kids; why not just find a nice, discreet (hell I don’t really care if he’s discreet) male companion and be done with it.

      • yawn says:

        Actually his career isn’t behind him despite what some of the negative writers in the press want to say. This article shows his box office stats have been very well even post 2005 at the worst of it all.
        Compare his stats to any actor -especially one in their 50′s who has been going at it this long and he has a very impressive box office history- even recent history.

    Why is t anyone stating the obvious? Tommy is gay. And as a side note, azoospermic. No sperm, not even a one!

    • Nimbolicious says:

      So who’s Suri’s dad? Chris Klein? David Miscavige? I’ve heard rumors of both.

      • Guest says:

        I still believe Suri’s biological dad is either Tommy Davis or Chris Klein.

      • melain says:

        @guest, I never read the rumors about Tom not being Suri’s bio dad. I just Googled Tommy Davis. OMG!! The first pic that came up looks just like Suri! How would Katie get preggers by him? What’s the theory? I could believe it, maybe, just based on that picture.

  19. CF98 says:

    I was never under the impression Tom was gay he doesn’t look like he’s attracted to anyone. I just think he’s asexual.

    Nothing wrong with that but in Hollywood being gay is probably preferable.
