Tom Cruise “Smitten” With Nicole Kidman “Lookalike” Rebecca Ferguson?
“Tom Cruise Smitten By His Ex-Wife Nicole’s Lookalike,” reads the headline of a new National Enquirer story that claims the actor is “flirting non-stop” with his Mission: Impossible 5 co-star Rebecca Ferguson.
“Tom keeps saying how Rebecca’s just like a young Nicole [Kidman], but even more beautiful,” a so-called “insider” tells the magazine.
According to the tabloid, Ferguson “caught Cruise’s eye last year when she appeared nude” in the Starz period drama “The White Queen.”
The magazine adds the actor “personally selected Rebecca to play his love interest in the film.”
“Rebecca was a surprise choice,” an alleged “pal” says. “There were better known actresses in line for the role, but Tom said he thought she’d be perfect.”
Another so-called “source” for the tab claims, “There’s been a real spark between them, and Tom’s been giving Rebecca his full attention. He’s showing her the ropes, even fetching her drinks like a love-struck teen.”
First of all, just because Ferguson has a pale complexion and reddish-blonde hair does not make her Kidman’s “mirror image” like the outlet claims.
The Enquirer is desperately trying to tie in Cruises’ ex-wife from more than a decade ago into a fabricated story about the actor and his co-star having an on-set romance.
Cruise is not “smitten” nor “flirting” with Ferguson.
A source connected to production confirms to Gossip Cop that the Enquirer’s story is not true.
