Get ready to be swept off your feet by this Hollywood love story, or should we say, potential love story? Word on the street is that our very own Top Gun hero, Tom Cruise, is eyeing another shot at love with the stunning Sofia Vergara. Yes, you heard it right!
Our beloved Maverick, who's 61 years young and still rocking the silver screen, had a short-lived romance with the Modern Family starlet back in 2005, right before Katie Holmes entered the picture. As an insider revealed to UK's Heat magazine, "They had a special time together partying in the Hollywood Hills and having a blast." But alas, it wasn't meant to be...or was it? The source added that Cruise had always regretted choosing Holmes over Vergara, a decision that has gnawed at him all these years. According to InStyle, Will Smith had played matchmaker for the pair in February 2005. However, after being spotted together only once, the spark seemed to extinguish almost as quickly as it had ignited.
In his best-selling book, Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography, Andrew Morton reveals that Vergara was charmed by Cruise's infectious smile and his flurry of romantic gestures. But her devout Catholic beliefs made her wary of Cruise's Scientology faith. As Morton writes, "She sincerely believed that she would be struck down by God and burn in hell if she joined.” Fast forward to today, and Vergara's marriage to Joe Manganiello has hit the rocks, opening up a potential window for Cruise. The Cocktail actor, who has been married to Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes in the past, might just be ready to take another shot at love.
Vergara, who was married to her high school sweetheart Joe Gonzalez before tying the knot with Manganiello, has also had her fair share of love's ups and downs. Her recent split from Manganiello left fans in shock, with the couple citing they've been growing apart and need some distance to contemplate their future. So, are we about to witness a new chapter in this Hollywood love saga? Only time will tell. But one thing's for sure - the prospect of a Cruise-Vergara romance is as thrilling as a Mission: Impossible chase scene!
