It was a sporty weekend for Tom Cruise. First he showed up at Wimbledon for the women’s final on Saturday with Hayley Atwell and Pom Klementieff, his costars in Mission: Impossible 7 and again, on his own, for the men’s final on Sunday, before heading to Wembley for the Euro final between England and Italy. Some of the gossip focus here, I know, is on Tom and Hayley, but that’s not the couple that’s top of mind for me. For me, it’s the Cruise-Beckham reunion. 


Tom and David Beckham were sitting a seat apart at the football match. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Tom and David together. The last time I can find was also at a sporting event – a hockey game, back in 2013: 

Connor Cruise, Victoria Beckham, Tom Cruise, Harper Beckham and David Beckham attend Game Seven of the Western Conference Semifinals between the San Jose Sharks and the Los Angeles Kings during the 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Staples Center on May 28, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. The Kings defeated Sharks 2-1 to advance to the Western Conference Finals

Since then, if they’ve been hanging out, we don’t know about it. It’s possible, since Tom spends most of his time when he’s not shooting in London, but if they are spending time together, it’s not public. Before though, it was a lot. Like when he was married to Katie Holmes. And Katie and Victoria were best friends – we saw A LOT of the Cruises and the Beckhams. At the Oscars, on holiday together, at the Met Gala, front row at fashion shows…

And then, of course, Katie bounced from the marriage and since then, that whole crew has disbanded. By the way, it used to include Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony and also, sometimes, Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith.


Now…we don’t exactly know who Tom hangs out, other than, um, Scientology people. And Hayley Atwell and Pom Klementieff, I guess? The rumours about Tom and Hayley have been happening since they started shooting together. Had they attended Wimbledon alone, without Pom, it would for sure have fueled more speculation. I really hope Pom wasn’t just there to offset that attention and still, most of the photos published of them at the match crop out Pom and focus instead of just Tom and Hayley. If they are a thing, Tom’s keeping it undercover for a change, which would be a gear change, obviously, from what he’s done in the past. That said, in the past, whenever he had a girlfriend, she was paraded around like a trophy. Is that no longer the move now? Or is it not a move because she’s not his girlfriend?
