Cruise ‘holds wife auditions’

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise has reportedly launched a search to find a new girlfriend.

The Hollywood star has been single since splitting from his ex-wife Katie Holmes last year. It seems he is eager to settle down and is looking for a new relationship. However, Tom is apparently choosy when it comes to love. According to British magazine Grazia, the 51-year-old actor is looking for someone who has been a member of the Church of Scientology for at least five years and is involved in the entertainment industry.

The lady also apparently has to be brainy and in her mid to late 30s.

“Tom needs to be strict about his criteria because he wants to avoid a disastrous match and he needs them to understand his hectic lifestyle and all that comes with it,” a source told the publication.

A dating service has reportedly been set up within the Church of Scientology to help Tom find the perfect partner.

So far it seems that one possible candidate has been found. She is described as an “unidentified actress” who is friends with Orange Is the New Black actress Laura Prepon.

Tom was apparently introduced to the lucky lady at a recent gala event at the Scientology centre.

“Tom seemed impressed but he’s keen to see who else might be out there,” revealed an insider.

The star was recently linked to actress-and-model Jessica White, who is also a Scientologist.

Last month, former Scientologist Anette Iren Johansen claimed she had been “auditioned” to be Tom’s wife in 2005.
