The 34-year-old actress recently attended the New York premiere for George’s latest movie Gravity. She turned heads in her pretty pink mini-dress and it has now been claimed that the chemistry between Katie and George at the red carpet event was undeniable.

“Katie and George have known each other for years. They met through her ex-husband Tom Cruise, and have always got on. Katie has had a crush on him for years…,” a source told British magazine Grazia. “Katie really has her sights set on him. There is a genuine connection.”

The pair are believed to have grown closer following 52-year-old George’s split from Stacy Keibler over the summer.

It seems they first realised there was a spark when they attended a mutual friend’s dinner party and have since enjoyed a few dates.

“They’re both single and have met up a couple of times since the dinner party,” an insider revealed.

Those close to the stars insist the flirtation is still in its early stages.

Croatian model Monika Jakisic first caught Clooney's attention back in 2004, and has been dubbed the 'Croatian Sensation'. The pair are said to be quietly dating.

However, 34-year-old Katie seems to be having a great time around George.

“Katie and George are having a lot of fun. They are enjoying their new flirtation. He’s a fun guy with buckets of charisma and Katie loves his company,” added a source.

Since splitting from husband Tom Cruise last year, Katie is reported to have enjoyed a romance with her Mania Days co-star Luke Kirby, while Jamie Foxx recently dismissed speculation he dated the actress.
