Tom Cruise 'dating Mission: Impossible 7 co-star Hayley Atwell'
Tom Cruise is said to be dating his Mission: Impossible 7 co-star Hayley Atwell.
The two stars are currently working on the Mission: Impossible sequel, with filming taking place all over Europe, including Norway and Italian cities Venice and Rome, and have reportedly ‘hit it off’ on set.
It’s claimed that Tom, 58, is now romantically involved with Hayley, 38, with sources claiming the difficulties filming has faced during the coronavirus pandemic has only brought the pair ‘closer together’.
‘Tom and Hayley hit it off from day one. Lockdown, and all the difficulties that came with it, brought them even closer and they’ve become fairly inseparable,’ a production source told The Sun.
‘They’ve been meeting up after hours and she’s been to his London pad,’ the source added.
‘They get on brilliantly and both seem very happy.’
Neither Tom or Hayley have confirmed the reports, but the pair have been seen getting close during filming – with one scene seeing the pair handcuffed together while filming an action-packed, high speed car chase through the centre of Rome.
Tom is reprising his role as Ethan Hunt in the latest film in the Mission: Impossible franchise, while Hayley’s role remains undisclosed.
Christopher McQuarrie who wrote the upcoming sequel has previously described Hayley’s character as a ‘destructive force of nature’, as he teased that those working on the movie didn’t want her character to be ‘a repeat of any character that’s come before’.
Hayley, meanwhile, has teased the ‘ambiguity’ of her character, as she previously told Collider: ‘There’s ambiguity… the interesting thing we’re exploring is her resistance to a situation she finds herself in. How she starts off, where she becomes.
‘The journey of what she comes into and what is asked of her and potentially where she ends up.’
She and Tom have been getting stuck into filming stunts for Mission: Impossible 7, with Hayley sharing behind-the-scenes snaps with Tom on Instagram and joking the Hollywood star has been her new ‘driving instructor’.
Tom hasn’t been romantically linked to anybody long-term since his split with ex-wife Katie Holmes, who he shares daughter Suri, 14, with.
Tom and Katie first began dating in 2005 and got engaged just seven weeks after they first got together. They married a year later in 2006 – seven months after welcoming their daughter.
They split six-years later, with Katie filing for divorce in June 2012.
Tom is also dad to two adopted children, Isabella and Connor, who he shares with Nicole Kidman from their previous marriage.
News he is now dating co-star Hayley comes after reports Tom screamed at crew-members on Mission: Impossible 7’s set for breaking Covid-19 rules and not adhering to the two metre social distancing rule.
It was claimed five members of staff then quit the film, following Tom’s outbursts.
Filming for Mission: Impossible 7 has faced a number of setbacks, ever since it was initially shut down due to the pandemic in March, earlier this year.
Since then, Tom has been splashing out on extra precautions to ensure that the movie is on schedule for its November 19, 2021 release date.
Filming returned to the UK two weeks ago, after wrapping up across Europe.
