1. Tom Cruise reportedly sends Shakira flowers after being 'so taken' by her

Tom Cruise may have just done his first relatable thing in years: develop a crush on Shakira. The Top Gun: Maverick star and the "Hips Don't Lie" singer were recently spotted together at the Formula 1 Grand Prix, and a source now claims to Page Six, "He is extremely interested in pursuing her. There is chemistry." The source continued that the singer "needs a soft pillow to fall on, and that could be Tom." The actor was "so taken" by her that he sent her flowers, a source also told the outlet. Shakira, of course, split from soccer star Gerard Piqué last year amid rumors he cheated on her, and since then, she has brutally slammed him in her new music. Cruise, meanwhile, is said to be single — unless you count his committed relationship to The Movies.
