If Scientology had a heaven, this pairing may very well be a perfect match made there.
According to multiple print and online entertainment publications, the Mission Impossible star has been secretly seeing the Orange Is The New Black actress for several months now. The two actors, who are both active Scientologists, are said to be trying to keep their relationship under wraps.
A few insiders informed UK-based online magazine that Cruise and Prepon were seen sharing a meal at LA’s Manor Hotel last November. However, representatives of both actors denied that there is anything romantic going on between the two. New York’s famous gossip column Page Six claims that Cruise and Prepon are still an item and working hard to keep their romance a secret from the public.
British tabloid The Daily Mail was informed by Cruise’s representative that not only are the dating rumors not true, but the two actors have actually never personally met. Another anonymous source spoke with E! News seconded the rep’s claim, insisting that Cruise and Prepon have never been formally introduced.
On Thursday, Page Six columnist Richard Johnson added that the couple’s secret romance is the “buzz” on the set of Prepon’s show.
Prepon, who first gained popularity as Donna on the hit TV show That 70’s Show, also starred in How I Met Your Mother, and currently plays a drug-dealing lesbian on the Netflix series Orange Is The New Black. Prepon had a longtime relationship with That 70’s Show and fellow Scientologist Christopher Masterson, which ended in 2007. Us Weekly reported that Prepon briefly dated Californication star Scott Michael Foster after the breakup.

Cruise, on the other hand, had high-profile relationships with Australian actress Nicole Kidman, and more recently, with Dawson’s Creek star Katie Holmes. Cruise and Holmes ended their marriage in 2012, after seven years of being together. They have a seven-year-old daughter named Suri, of whom they share custody.
