Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes Dating

Tom Cruise, Actress Katie Holmes Dating (AP)

Tom Cruise has a new girlfriend — actress Katie Holmes. Cruise, 42, and Holmes, 26, have been dating a few weeks, Cruise’s publicist and sister, Lee Anne DeVette, said Wednesday. The pair were photographed this week together in Rome, where Cruise on Friday will receive a lifetime achievement award at the Italian equivalent of the Academy Awards, the David di Donatello Awards. Holmes’ public relations firm — Baker Winokur Ryder — confirmed the two were dating.

Both actors have had high-profile relationships. Cruise’s first two marriages, to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, ended in divorce. He was dating actress Penelope Cruz until the pair split last year. Holmes and actor Chris Klein recently called off their engagement after dating five years.

I’m not sure why anyone cares about this sort of thing but many people do. If you’re one of them, consider it a service of OTB. If you’re not, there are many posts below.

    I think this is hysterical. Look up Katie Holmes’ profile on and see this quote listed:

    “I think every little girl dreams about her wedding. I used to think I was going to marry Tom Cruise.”

    That is hysterical.

    How long until she converts to scientology?

    With track records like theirs, oh it will last forever. Who’s taking bets? I’ll take 422 days or 3 days after the next Tom Cruise movie comes out.

    Hmmm…sounds like Tom Cruise likes to visit to me…

    It will last until one night in bed, Tommy boy starts trying to turn Katie onto dianetics.

    I think it’s really good. Everyone could learn more about Dianetics and Scientology. I’m sure that if she wants to learn that Tom will give her a book to read about it.
