Is Tom Cruise Dating a Restaurant Manager From Queens?

The internet is burning up over the story that celebrity Scientologist and father to the best-dressed child in Hollywood is dating a restaurant manager from Queens, New York.


It gets better. Apparently, the gal in question, Cynthia Jorge, dated B-lister Seann William Scott (Stifler from the American Pie movies) before moving on to A-lister Tom Cruise.

According to the New York Daily News, an eager Jorge slipped Cruise her business card when he dined at Beauty & Essex on the Lower East Side, where the dark-haired beauty works as a manager.


The couple then met for drinks and danced the night away where a witness says they "began grinding" at New York nightspot LeBaron before Cruise had a private car take her back to the borough, according to In Touch magazine. 

Prior to all this fuss over a drink and a few dances, Jorge was on the restaurant career track, receiving a communications degree from Boston University and working at Benjamin Steakhouse in New York as marketing director.

Representatives for both parties deny that they're dating. Let's see how long it takes for Cruise to jump on furniture about his new love interest.
