Talk about a powerful celebrity couple. Tom Cruise’s ex-wife, 34-year-old Katie Holmes, has been linked to one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, 52-year-old George Clooney.

The word on the celebrity rumor mill is that these two have been friends for years, after meeting through her famous ex-husband, and they recently caught up at a dinner party hosted by a mutual friend. They’ve reportedly gone out on a couple dates since, and Holmes even showed up at the New York premiere of Clooney’s new movie Gravity, where they shared quite the embrace.

“Katie has had a crush on him for years,” an insider told Grazia magazine. “Katie really has her sights set on him. There is a genuine connection.”


A source also added that their May-December relationship is still in its very early stages, and that the rumored celebrity couple is just enjoying each other’s company right now. “Katie and George are having a lot of fun. They are enjoying their new flirtation. He’s a fun guy with buckets of charisma and Katie loves his company.”

If Clooney and Holmes are, in fact, the hottest new celebrity couple, it would definitely be a step up for her since her six-year marriage to Cruise took a serious nosedive in 2012. However, even though Clooney and Holmes are both single and seem to get along well, there’s a good chance that this dating news is nothing more than a rumor, especially because he reportedly just spent the night with 33-year-old Croatian model Monika Jakisic.
