Top Gun: Maverick star Tom Cruise has once again separated from his on/off girlfriend Hayley Atwell. The two supposedly reunited again after they were rumored to have split in September last year but it seems like things once again didn’t work out between them.
The Mission: Impossible co-stars first got together in 2020
The ex-couple first got together in 2020 on the set of Mission: Impossible 7, a film that is scheduled for release in July 2023 after the pandemic halted its production. The actors have never publicly confirmed their relationship, so we’ve relied on reports telling us they became ‘fairly inseparable’ and ‘hit it off from day one’ of shooting. However, in September 2021, their relationship was thought to have ‘run its course’ after ‘a very intense period of filming together’, reports said.
Sources have confirmed that they have now decided that they are better as friends
A source told The Sun, “Unfortunately, it hasn’t worked out for them. They have now decided they are better as friends”.
“They get on really well and have fantastic chemistry, which is why they decided to quietly give the relationship another try earlier this year. But what was working behind closed doors didn’t work out so well when it was made public, and the fanfare around them as a couple exploded again.” The source also addressed some of the rumors that said that their romance was a stunt or purely for the cameras. They clarified that their relationship was genuine, “In spite of some rumors to the contrary, it was never just for the cameras”.
The source finished off by adding that the two are ‘still happy to work together’ and ‘still get on well’ despite their separation.
