Just last week, she was being lined up as the future Mrs Tom Cruise, but the actor's latest rumoured love interest already has a boyfriend.
Emily Thomas, a 22-year-old assistant to the superstar on Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, hit the headlines last week when it was reported that Cruise was considering popping the question.
But she already has a leading man in life - Alex Roberts (25), a director of a carpentry firm from Middlesex, whom she also met on the set of the blockbuster film.
While she has never publicly commented on the romance rumours between her and Cruise, who has been married three times before, she did change her Facebook profile picture to a loved up snap of her and Alex, whom she is said to be dating for the last five months.
"'It's still early days between Emily and Alex but they're already pretty close," an insider told the Mail Online.
"They've been very public with their relationship, so reports concerning Tom will come as a surprise to pals."
Close friends of Cruise, who also noted the resemblance between Emily and his ex-wife Katie Holmes, told OK! Magazine US that he was "totally smitten" with his English PA.
"Tom has come to rely on Emily. She's very smart and always one step ahead of him. Tom has made it clear to his team that he wants Emily with him on all projects. She knows how to handle him and never gets stressed; she's always calm and kind," an insider told the magazine.
"[He's] clearly happier when Emily is around. No matter how long the workday is, they're always laughing and having fun."
Tom was previously married to Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman and Holmes.
