Tom Cruise and Hayley Atwell are they dating? Don’t trust the ‘grubby’ claims, the star advises.

Hayley Atwell, the star of “Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning,” says she had gotten close to Tom Cruise over the course of the three years they spent filming the movie, but not in the way some fans may expect.

Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie are more like “two uncles” to Atwell, whose Grace serves as Ethan Hunt’s (Cruise) new sparring partner. The “Agent Carter” actor, 41, put an end to the romance rumors that surfaced while she was filming the venerable action series in an interview with the Independent that was published on Saturday.

In 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 epidemic (recall Cruise’s profanity-filled tirade about safety), the seventh “Mission Impossible” film was in the early stages of production. and finished up in April this year. In December 2020, tabloid allegations about the co-stars’ relationship first appeared, according to unnamed sources, who said the pair “fancied each other” and were “inseparable.”

When she would tell Cruise, 61, about speculations in the press, she claimed, “I would be like, ‘Ooh, there’s some crazy things, and it feels base, it feels a bit nasty, it feels a little grimy, it’s not what I’m about. Why are assumptions or projections about my interactions with my coworkers and boss being made about me?

It involves people who must be exposed to that in my real life and my private life, she continued. It starts to interfere.

According to Atwell, who is engaged to music producer Ned Wolfgang Kelly, Cruise gave some advice on how to handle tabloid stories, just like any good uncle would. Atwell was informed by the “Top Gun: Maverick” actor that she “knows exactly who you are.”

If you are true to yourself and are aware of your values, it doesn’t matter what other people think of you, according to what Cruise allegedly told his co-star.
