After jumping on the couch on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2005 as a way to confess his love for Katie Holmes, it seemed like Tom Cruise had finally met "the one." Tom's public proclamations for Katie made it all the more surprising when the couple announced their divorce in 2012 after just six years of marriage.

In the years since Tom and Katie (or TomKat, as the media dubbed them) split, the press has been curious about Tom's love life, especially because of his tendency to go all-out with romantic gestures. While it's understandable that the Top Gun: Maverick actor might keep his love life more private, he has been linked to multiple other actresses since his divorce.

So, who is Tom Cruise dating? Read on to find his current relationship status, and who else the famous Scientologist has been linked to.

Tom Cruise reportedly split with his 'Mission Impossible 7' co-star Hayley Atwell in 2021.

According to one source's conversation with The Sun tabloid in December 2020, Tom Cruise and Hayley Atwell immediately "hit it off from day one" when they worked together. If Hayley seems familiar, it's because she played Peggy Carter in the Captain America flicks.

The pair reportedly dated until September 2021, when OK! Magazine reported they split after just a year of dating. However, the magazine also noted that as of January 2022, Tom reportedly has a new woman in his life. The mystery actress remained unnamed except for the detail that she, like Hayley, is British.

A source told OK!, "A few weeks ago, he was introduced to a beautiful British actress and was instantly hooked. [He] wooed her with flowers and gifts and dinners at his favorite London restaurants."

The source also added, "He completely swept her off her feet, even taking her on day trips aboard a plane that he piloted himself. Tom has gotten lots of flack for being over-the-top when he falls in love, but he’s an incurable romantic."

Tom Cruise rumored girlfriends have included Laura Prepon and Elisabeth Moss.

Following Tom's initial divorce from Katie, the Jerry Maguire actor was first linked to restaurant owner Cynthia Jorge. By 2013, he was reportedly seeing Oblivion co-star Olga Kurylenko (who is best known for starring in the Bond film Quantum of Solace) after they were spotted in public kissing.

However, it turned out the two were simply co-stars, and she was in a relationship with actor Max Benitz at the time. He was also linked to Scientologist and Orange Is the New Black star Laura Prepon in 2013, but neither ever confirmed the romance.

After sitting next to each other at The Fashion Awards in London in December 2019, rumors began surfacing that Tom was very interested in pursuing Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery. The rumors made the cover of Star Magazine, as a source claimed that Tom wanted to forge a friendship with the actress that would then someday lead to more.

However, Michelle has been in a committed relationship with Jasper Waller-Bridge, the brother of Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge for some time now.

Another report circulated that Tom and The Handmaid's Tale actress Elisabeth Moss (who is also a Scientologist) were an item and that their faith had bonded them together. The two are some of the more outspoken supporters of the religion, and both have praised the faith during interviews.

The rumors were fueled when Elisabeth confirmed to Marie Claire that she had a beau in an interview, but she then refused to name him. Some assumed that she was talking about Tom Cruise simply because of their shared faith.

In March 2020, Elisabeth set the record straight about their reported romance. They're not an item and they never were.

“I actually was confused,” Moss said during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. “[I] mainly got texts from people being like, ‘I didn’t know. Why didn’t you tell me?’ And just confusion from my friends, but mainly poking fun at it ‘cause obviously they knew it wasn’t true.”

It sounds like the mystery of Tom's romantic life is just that: still a mystery! Perhaps soon, he'll be willing to go public with his new flame.
