He’s looking for that (women’s) college hoops action! Tom Cruise and his son Connor were in the house at the NCAA Women’s Final Four semifinal in Tampa, Fla., on Easter Sunday, April 5, to watch the University of Connecticut Huskies take on the University of Maryland Terrapins.
The Jerry Maguire actor, 52, and his son, 20, were snapped in their suite sharing a tense expression as they watched UConn take on the top-ranked Terps.
Star UConn player Breanna Stewart told ABC News after her team’s 81 to 58 victory over Maryland on Sunday that she was surprised the star was at the game. “Where was he? Oh my gosh,” she said. “I didn’t even get to meet him.”
Cruise’s latest public appearance comes exactly one week after the release of Going Clear, a new HBO documentary about Scientology.
In the film, it was revealed that the church head David Miscavige helped facilitate Cruise’s high-profile split from “the enemy” Kidman back in 2001, even requesting a wiretap on her phone. The doc also repeated allegations that members of the church persuaded Connor and his sister Isabella, now 22, to turn against their famous mom.
Interestingly enough, it turns out that another one of Cruise’s exes, Katie Holmes, is also a fan of the Huskies. Last March, the Dawson’s Creek star watched the men’s basketball team take on Michigan State at Madison Square Garden — solo.
