As one of Hollywood’s most well known leading men, Tom Cruise’s personal life has attracted just as much attention as his film career.
The Top Gun actor has been married three times and has also dated a slew of famous women over the years.
He was most recently linked to singer Shakira after they were seen at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Miami.
A source told Page Six that Tom ‘is extremely interested in pursuing’ the Colombian singer, 46, as ‘there is chemistry’ between them.
As Tom looks set to embark on a new romance, MailOnline takes a look back at his relationship history.

Tom first met Cher in 1985 when they were introduced at Madonna and Sean Penn’s wedding in Malibu.
They later met again at a White House event to raise awareness for dyslexia and soon embarked on a ‘hot and heavy’ romance.
Recalling the relationship, Cher told Event magazine in 2018: ‘A bunch of people who were dyslexic were invited to the White House, and Tom and I are both dyslexic.
‘We didn’t go out till way later, but there definitely was a connection there.’

Asked if the pair are still friends now, she said: ‘Yeah! Though I don’t get what he does, that whole Scientology thing. I can’t understand it so I just… don’t.’
During a 2013 appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, Cher said Tom was one of the top five lovers she had ever had.
She said: ‘He wasn’t a Scientologist then. It was pretty hot and heavy for a little minute. He’s a great guy. The person that I knew was a great and lovable guy.’
Mimi Rogers (1887-1990)
Tom married his first wife Mimi Rogers on May 9, 1987. However the couple were not meant to be as they divorced three years later.
Discussing their marriage with Rolling Stone in 1987, Tom said: ‘I’d never been in love before. Since I’ve been with her, it’s opened me up a lot.
‘I think it’s helped me be a better actor. We live a lot of life together. We share everything… She’s my best friend.’

Mimi is believed to be one of Tom’s first links to the Church of Scientology which he has since become closely associated with.
The actress was raised in the controversial church and was one of its ‘auditors’ when she met Tom.
Mimi has since left Scientology while Tom continues to be an active member.
Nicole Kidman (1990-2001)
Tom met his second wife Nicole Kidman on the set of their film Days Of Thunder (1990).
The pair enjoyed a whirlwind romance before they married on December 24 of that year and adopted two children, Isabella (born 1992) and Connor (born 1995).

They starred together again in the 1999 erotic thriller Eyes Wide Shut before divorcing two years later.
Tom filed for divorce while Nicole was unknowingly pregnant. The pregnancy had appeared to end in miscarriage before Nicole clarified in 2007 it had been an ectopic pregnancy.
Penelope Cruz (2001-2004)
Tom met Penelope Cruz on the set of Vanilla Sky in 2000 but he insisted the pair didn’t begin dating until after his divorce from Nicole the following year.
He told The Telegraph: ‘I’ve never fallen in love with someone I’m working with. It’s always been afterwards.’

In a 2003 interview with Marie Claire, Tom opened up about the ‘little things’ he liked to do for the Spanish beauty.
He said: ‘She’ll come home, and I’ll have her favorite kind of food made, have a bath drawn. I like doing stuff like that. She likes my food, so I cook for her. It’s always the little things I like in a relationship.’
The pair eventually went their separate ways in 2004.
Nazanin Boniadi (2004-2005)
Tom was next linked to British actress Nazanin Boniadi, who he dated from November 2004 to January 2005.

Years later, a Vanity Fair article claimed Scientology leaders had launched a secret project to find Tom a new girlfriend after his split from Penelope.
The publication claimed a series of ‘auditions’ led to Nazanin being selected to be his girlfriend, however she later left Scientology.
Both Tom and the Church of Scientology strongly denied these claim
Katie Holmes (2005-2012)
In April 2005, Tom embarked on what would become one of his most high profile relationships when he began dating Katie Holmes.
The pair made their first public appearance together that month in Rome and were quickly dubbed ‘TomKat’ by the press.

Tom famously declared his love for Katie during an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show where he jumped up and down on the couch in celebration of their relationship.
Tom and Katie’s daughter Suri was born in April 2006. The couple married at Odescalchi Castle in Bracciano, Italy that November in a Scientoogist ceremony.
Katie filed for divorce in June 2012 with Tom later acknowledging that Katie’s desire to protect their daughter Suri from Scientology was a factor in their divorce.
Hayley Atwell (2021-2022)
Tom reportedly dated actress Hayley Atwell after they worked together on Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning.
Although the pair never confirmed their romance, they did attend the Wimbledon finals together in 2021.

They were reported to have split in June 2022, with a source telling The Sun: ‘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.
Tom was linked to Shakira after they met at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Miami in May.
Shakira parted ways with longtime love Gerard Piqué, 36, last summer amid allegations he had cheated on her with the woman he wound up dating following the split, Clara Chia Marti, 24.
A source told Page Six that the Colombian singer ‘needs a soft pillow to fall on, and that could be Tom.’
