While they say 3 times the charm, could the 4th time be the lucky number to make a Tom Cruise marriage work? Rumors are running wild that Tom has fallen for actress Lola Kirke on the set of their CIA thriller, ‘Mena’.
Is the actor ready to settle down again with another lucky lady? While it’s already been three years since Tom Cruise, 52, and Katie Holmes, 36, officially divorced, it looks like a possible romance is heating up between Tom and Lola Kirke, 24 according to a new report. We have ALL the details for you!
“Something about the fresh faced, bohemian actress has really turned him on,” a friend of Tom’s tells InTouch magazine. “He’s already sizing her up to be wife No. 4.” Tom and Lola are down in Atlanta where they are filming Mena together. The two have been working together for several weeks now and have allegedly grown pretty close during this time. But Tom isn’t just friendly with the actress, he’s actually in “hot pursuit of Lola” according to the report.Oh-la-la! It doesn’t seem like Tom’s hiding his affection either. During their time on set, the two have been spotted getting their flirt on. “One day, he walked up behind her and was caressing her back,” says a set witness tells the mag. “She turned around with a big smile, and they had a long conversation before Tom went back to work. They definitely seemed flirtatious. She’s told others on the production how handsome and ingratiating she finds Tom. It’s obvious she’s not immune to his superstar charms.”
You may remember Lola from the Oscar nominated film, Gone Girl, where she played the character of Greta. Besides her talent on the big screen, she’s quite the smart young lady. As a graduate of the private liberal arts school, Bard College in New York, we can understand why Tom would be so intrigued. Shooting for Mena will wrap at the end of July, so we will have to keep our eyes peeled to see if they continue to hangout off set.
So, how else is Tom winning over Lola? Well, one theory could be all his exciting Hollywood stories. I mean, he is one of the most famous actors out there. “Tom loves her doe-eyed reaction to his stories and insights,” adds Tom’s friend. “They’ve gotten extremely close in a matter of weeks.” As we learned during a deposition with Scientology, Tom revealed that the church was one of the reasons for their divorce. Is this a concern for Lola? “She’s heard the Scientology stories and tales of Tom’s controlling behavior,” the friend told InTouch. “Still, she can’t help but be attracted to Tom.”
While Tom may be one of the busiest actors in Hollywood, keeping a personal life is super important for the A-List star. During the Edge of Tomorrow premiere in 2014, we spoke with Tom about how he balances his busy life. “You just got to make it happen, make it happen,” he told HollywoodLife.com.
