Tom Cruise has fallen head over heels for a sexy British skydiving instructor who he met on the set of his new Mission: Impossible thriller.
The Hollywood star is smitten by blonde Sian Stokes, according to a report in US magazine Globe. The box office star developed a liking for the sportswoman after she took him under her wing on the set of Mission Impossible: Fallout.
‘To say he’s head over heels would be an understatement,’ a source told the magazine. ‘He’s still drooling over her.’
The British national skydiving champion admits she was ‘impressed’ by Tom during their shoot on the Paramount Pictures epic.
‘There was a moment when I was sitting next to American movie star Tom Cruise on a plane thousands of feet in the air and I thought, “My life has definitely changed”,’ she says.
The onset source says the duo got to know each other really well during the Christopher McQuarrie-headed shoot, and the ex Mr Nicole Kidman was clearly thrilled.
‘You’d always see him talking to her and flashing his megawatt smile,’ says the source.
‘She’s definitely his type – tall, athletic, beautiful.
‘He couldn’t help but stare at her when they were introduced. He was mesmerised.
‘Usually it’s the women who are wobbly in the knees around him, but Tom was clearly affected by Sian.’
While the duo were ‘super professional’ on set as he filmed his latest role as Ethan Hunt, ‘it was hard not to notice that he liked her,’ adds the source.
‘He was crushing on her big time.
‘He raves that she’s an excellent coach. He’d work with her again in a heartbeat.
‘Falling from the sky with Dian was a thrill for him.’
It's been seven years since Tom's marriage split from Katie Holmes.
