Does Hollywood mega-star Tom Cruise have a crush on former American Idol finalist Pia Toscano? Pia may have said last month that she has a thing for current Idol judge (and happily married) Keith Urban, but the famous hunk who really seems to be taking a special interest in her is none other than recently divorced Mission Impossible star Tom Cruise!
Tom Cruise was in attendance at last night’s playoff game between the San Jose Sharks and the L. A. Kings when he was struck by the powerful vocals of Pia’s rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” After the game, E! News reports that Tom sought out 24-year-old Pia, who broke up with Dancing With the Stars pro Mark Ballas in 2011, to praise her for the outstanding performance.
“He said, ‘You’re an amazing singer. You were awesome. That’s not an easy song to sing,” Tom said, according to an insider.
Lucky Pia had the chance to take home a personal memento of the amazing run-in, posing for a photo with the Oblivion star, which she posted to Instagram with the caption, "So great meeting @tomcruise at the @lakings game :)"
When you are literally like one of the biggest stars in the world, one has to wonder why you would bother to seek out a former reality TV show contestant at a sports game to personally congratulate her for singing the national anthem. Unless, perhaps, Tom Cruise might have found himself a new crush?
Pia Toscano’s dark locks, sexy brown eyes and youthful good looks do kind of remind us just a tad of his ex-wife Katie Holmes, who just turned 34, and even his former girlfriend Penelope Cruz. Could the former American Idol contestant be just his type?
