In Touch can exclusively reveal that only six months after his divorce from Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise has a new woman in his life — brunette beauty Cynthia Jorge, a 26-year-old Queens, N.Y., native and NYC restaurant manager.
The 50-year–old Mission: Impossible star was spotted “sweeping her around the dance floor,” of NYC’s Le Baron nightclub in the early morning hours of Dec. 18, an eyewitness details in the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now.
“He was mesmerized by Cynthia,” the eyewitness dishes to In Touch. “She had her hair in a bun, wore tight black pants and looked gorgeous.”
The pair first met Dec. 16 at the Lower East Side hot spot Beauty & Essex, where Cynthia works as a manager. As Tom left the restaurant after a meal of sashimi and empanadas with business associates, Cynthia handed the superstar her card, a restaurant insider tells In Touch.
The bold gesture paid off: The next day, Tom called Beauty & Essex at least twice trying to track down Cynthia — and was “put on hold for a very long time!” according to the insider, who adds that when he couldn’t get her on the phone, the insistent actor got a message to her.
Less than 24 hours later, the duo — along with some friends — met up at Le Baron, where Cynthia huddled with Tom in a booth when he wasn’t pulling her out on the dance floor. “They did the salsa. He took her in his arms and spun her around the dance floor,” a witness gushes. “Tom looked like a pro.”
And things weren’t totally G-rated. “At one point, they began grinding together,” the witness tells In Touch. “It was straight out of Dirty Dancing. Tom seemed to be in his own world, completely smitten.”
At the end of their night together, Cynthia was treated to one of the action star’s signature grand romantic gestures: Tom had made sure a private car was waiting outside the club to get her home safely. “It was obvious,” says the source. “He’s enamored with this woman.”
