Tom Cruise has reportedly launched a search to find a new girlfriend.
The Hollywood star has been single since splitting from his ex-wife Katie Holmes last year. It seems he is eager to settle down and is looking for a new relationship. However, Tom is apparently choosy when it comes to love. According to British magazine Grazia, the 51-year-old actor is looking for someone who has been a member of the Church of Scientology for at least five years and is involved in the entertainment industry.
The lady also apparently has to be brainy and in her mid to late 30s.
"Tom needs to be strict about his criteria because he wants to avoid a disastrous match and he needs them to understand his hectic lifestyle and all that comes with it," a source told the publication.
A dating service has reportedly been set up within the Church of Scientology to help Tom find the perfect partner.
So far it seems that one possible candidate has been found. She is described as an "unidentified actor" who is friends with Orange Is the New Black actor Laura Prepon.
Tom was apparently introduced to the lucky lady at a recent gala event at the Scientology centre.
"Tom seemed impressed but he's keen to see who else might be out there," revealed an insider.
The star was recently linked to actor-and-model Jessica White, who is also a Scientologist.
Last month, former Scientologist Anette Iren Johansen claimed she had been "auditioned" to be Tom's wife in 2005.
Apparently this Jessica White rumor is from earlier.
Nearly a year after his divorce from Katie Holmes, love-starved Tom Cruise is desperately trying to land a girlfriend, a source says.
The 51-year-old superstar, who’s worth an estimated $270 million, has even enlisted his teenage son Connor to help him find Miss Right. But he reportedly has his heart set on landing a stunner in her 20s, and that could be a mission impossible.
“Tom is lonely and very much wants a woman in his life right now,” disclosed an insider.
“He’s not used to being alone and believes that appearing to be a failure in the love department lessens his star power. He’s been combing through his contact list to call old girlfriends, and he’s hitting on young model types in hotspots – but so far, no luck.”
Meanwhile, sources say that Tom is now hot for gorgeous, 29-year-old model Jessica White, who previously dated Sean Penn and recently became a Scientologist.
“Tom volunteered to be Jessica’s personal Scientology tutor as a way to get close to her,” revealed the insider. “He’s bowled over by her exotic looks.”
But so far, nothing has gelled between them. And even a recent endorsement from Cher, who called Tom one of her five top lovers, hasn’t helped his quest.”
