On the set of his new film Mena, Tom, 52, is constantly flanked by his beautiful young assistant Emily, who has an uncanny resemblance to the superstar’s ex-wife. According to sources, the pair are inseparable between takes, laughing and flirting on the Jasper, Georgia set.
In Mena, Tom plays legendary drug smuggler turned government informant, Barry “El Gordo” Seal, and word is this production has been a great escape for the Jerry McGuire actor, from all the shame recently heaped on him with the release HBO’s Going Clear. The Scientology documentary blew the lid off the cult like ‘religion’ the Oscar nominated actor is famous for being a big part of.
Hopefully that’s all water under the bridge for Cruise, as he concentrates on his new role, and possibly his tall gorgeous assistant, who he’s been crushing on for over a year now, says the source. Things can only get more intense, as they spend long hours together into the summer on the hot southern set.
Nobody’s crazy —the ladies do look alike, right?!
