Xenu must be smiling as two top Hollywood Scientologists are rumored to be an item. Page Six claims that actor Tom Cruise, 52, is dating “Orange Is the New Black” star Laura Prepon.
“It’s the buzz on the set of her show,” their source gushed.
Prepon, 34, plays a key character on the noir comedy for Netflix, and Cruise, now rid of former wife Katie Holmes, are both said to be dating.
Scientologists seem to keep it in the family.
Prepon, 34, once dated fellow Scientologist and “Malcolm in the Middle” star Chris Masterson. John Travolta is married to Kelly Preston; Jenna Elfman is married to Bodhi Elfman and Beck and Marissa Ribisi; Catherine Bell and Adam Beason.
