Tom Cruise Has Reportedly Split From His Girlfriend For the Second Time

Tom Cruise‘s latest on again off again relationship is off again. Cruise’s most recent love interest has been actress Hayley Atwell. The pair met on the set of “Mission Impossible 7” in 2020 and hit it off right away. They dated until September 2021 when they decided it would be better if they went back to just being “friends.”

A source told The Sun, “It has been a very intense period of filming together. They really got on well – and they’re obviously both very good-looking Hollywood stars so it made for a good match, but as the latest film winds down they’ve decided to go back to being friends.”

The source explained, “Their filming schedules are very full-on, and Tom has a number of other commitments coming up and is always shooting around by private helicopter and jet so it just ran its course. But they’re still happy to work together. It’s a shame, but just one of those things. They still get on well.”

Fast forward to May 2022, and it turns out that Cruise and Atwell had at some point decided to be more than just friends again. Atwell attended the “Top Gun: Maverick” premiere with Cruise. A source told The Sun, “She’s purely there to support him. It’s a big step for them.”  A source explained, “A bit of time apart has changed everything and brought them closer together in the end.”

But, that wasn’t the end of the story. No, now it appears that Cruise and Atwell have decided to end their romantic relationship for a second time.

According to a source, “Tom and Hayley’s relationship was genuine. In spite of some rumors to the contrary, it was never just for the cameras.” The source added, “Unfortunately it hasn’t worked out for them. They get on really well, and have fantastic chemistry, which is why they decided to quietly give the relationship another try earlier this year. But what was working behind closed doors didn’t work out so well when it was made public, and the fanfare around them as a couple exploded again. They have now decided they are better as friends.”

Atwell was Cruise’s first high-profile relationship since his ex-wife Katie Holmes. Holmes and Cruise have a daughter together, Suri Cruise, who is now 16.

Do you think Cruise and Atwell will eventually decide to give their relationship another chance? Do you think they would still be together if they hadn’t gone public with their relationship at the “Top Gun: Maverick” premiere?
