Date Is 24 Years Younger Than Cruise
Tom Cruise's mystery gal is revealed to be a restaurant manager from Queens. Will she be the next Mrs. Cruise?
Someone is back in the dating saddle again! Tom Cruise is officially back on the market after he was seen in New York City flirting with a new girl.
The New York Post uncovered the mystery gal on Thursday as Cynthia Jorge, a manager at the Lower East Side restaurant Beauty & Essex. Apparently it was the 26-year-old who made the first move by slipping her business card to the 50-year-old Cruise, who was dining at the establishment.
The article has friends describing Jorge as, “really nice...she doesn’t want to be an actress, she just wants to have fun. She’s young and single."
The duo was spotted out on Dec. 18 dirty dancing at the hot club LeBaron in Manhattan, with Cruise later escorting Jorge to the home she shares with her mother. That one sighting spurred instant media attention for the restaurant worker. She stayed home from work on Wednesday and Thursday to avoid the media glare.
The Queens native is no stranger to dating celebrities, though. She formerly dated American Pie star Seann William Scott. It's unknown how long the two dated, but Scott is currently engaged to Victoria's Secret model Lindsay Frimodt.
Cruise's friends are downplaying the date between the Jack Reacher star and Jorge, telling E! News, “He’s single and will be talking to women — all of whom he won’t be instantly dating,”
Another source who is friends with Jorge told People, “Cynthia told me they went out for drinks and it was nothing but a casual night out."
While this doesn't sound like love at first sight, it's clear Cruise is over his marriage to Katie Holmes and ready to move on in the New Year.
