Tom Cruise is in news again. This time the Mission Impossible star has been romantically linked to his co-star Hayley Atwell.

The incident had resulted in five crew members quitting and Cruise. Thus, just a day later, various sources told media that the 58-year-old actor was in a relationship with 38-year-old actress Hayley Atwell and that the couple was inseparable. Reports claim that Cruise and Atwell hit it off on day one. It is said that lockdown restrictions brought them closer. Cruise and Atwell have been together filming for Mission: Impossible 7 in Rome, Venice, Britain and Norway over the past few weeks.
The Vulture reported quoting an anonymous source who is not on actor's payroll: "They've been meeting up after hours, and she's been to his London pad. They get on brilliantly, and both seem very happy." Cruise's dating life has not made news since his divorce from ex-wife Katie Holmes in 2012.
