Tom Cruise positioned himself as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after stars. The actor has been in an on-off relationship with Hayley Atwell for quite some time now. It appears, the couple broken up once again, just weeks after it was suggested their romance had been rekindled.
According to The Sun, The Top Gun: Maverick star, who is 59, and his Mission: Impossible 7 co-star, who is 40, have parted ways after recently reconciling following their first split in September of 2021. A source told the outlet, “Unfortunately it hasn’t worked out for them. They have now decided they are better as friends.”
The insider also revealed that the fanfare around the couple after going public was too much to handle. The source further said, “They get on really well, and have fantastic chemistry,” which is why they decided to quietly give the relationship another try earlier this year. The source concluded, “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.”
Atwell recently supported Cruise at the Top Gun: Maverick premiere in London, on May 19th, where she stunned in a black crop top and matching velvet skirt with a high slit. A source told The Sun at the time, “She’s purely there to support him. It’s a big step for them.” The pair began dating in 2020 after meeting on set of Mission: Impossible 7, and were first reported to be an item in December.
Though the two had never expressly confirmed their romance, they were said to have become “fairly inseparable” after they “hit it off from day one” on the film. However, by September, the relationship was said to have “run its course” for the pair. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
