Tom Cruise and his rumored girlfriend, Hayley Atwell, brought a little taste of Hollywood to Wimbledon!
The world-famous actor and the 39-year-old London native attended day 12 of the famed tennis tournament on Saturday, July 10. Cruise smiled and waved at fans as he and his co-star made their way into the stadium and the Royal Box. Tom looked dapper in a classic blue suit, a white dress shirt, and a cream-colored tie, while Hayley looked radiant in a classy white patterned gown and trench coat draped over her shoulders.
The tournament is often filled with royalty and the who’s who of the English sports world. While the public is very interested in the action on the grass court, many people focus on which celebrities are mixing it up in the prized Royal Box. The normally private superstar got the royal treatment and was treated to some of the best seats in the house!
The Royal Box
The “Mission Impossible” star was spotted enjoying a laugh during Saturday’s match. As we previously mentioned, Atwell and Cruise sat center court. The Royal Box at Wimbleton has a storied history and has been used for the royals and their prominent guests since 1922. Heads of governments, royals from other countries, people from the world of tennis, and, apparently, world-famous movie stars are the only people that get the prime seats. Those lucky enough to place their highfalutin backsides on the seats are also invited to the Clubhouse for lunch, tea, and drinks at the end of the day (we are a little jealous). Guests are asked to dress smartly and not wear hats!
Fun fact: The Duke of Kent, the Club’s President, discontinued the tradition of players bowing/curtseying to members of the Royal family on entering or leaving the Centre Court. With the exception being the Queen.

Atwell and the 59-year-old actor reportedly “hit it off” after working together on “Mission Impossible.” Tom hasn’t had a high-profile relationship since divorcing Katie Holmes in 2012, and Hayley reportedly split from her doctor ex earlier this year. Back in December, a source close to the couple told The Sun that the co-stars were more than friends.
“Tom and Hayley hit it off from day one. Lockdown, and all the difficulties that came with it, brought them even closer and they’ve become fairly inseparable,” The Sun‘s source said. “They’ve been meeting up after hours, and she’s been to his London pad. They get on brilliantly, and both seem very happy.”
