Rumors that Cruise, 51, was dating the That '70s Show alum, 34, first surfaced back in November, when the two were spotted at dinner in L.A. Page Six cites British magazine Grazia's account of the meal, which claimed that the two "spent three hours laughing and joking" together. "It's clear Tom is smitten and after the date he was on cloud nine," Grazia reported at the time.
A source told Us Weekly, however, that there was nothing going on. "They see each other at some functions, but they are not dating," an insider told Us in November.
Reps for both stars continued to deny rumors of a romance to Page Six this week. Prepon's rep told Us Weekly on Thursday, April 17, that the paper's report is "not true."
Cruise was previously linked to New York restauranteur Cynthia Jorge, but has not publicly dated anyone since his split from Katie Holmes, 35, in summer 2012. Prepon, 34, ended her longtime relationship with Christopher Masterson, the brother of her That '70s Show costar Danny Masterson, in 2007. Following the breakup, she was connected to Greek actor Scott Michael Foster. Together for seven years before their dramatic split, Cruise and Holmes share daughter Suri, 7.
