Tom Cruise reportedly meets new woman, not completely satisfied

Tom Cruise has always been the subject of rumors of his allegedly exhaustive screenings for a mate, preferably a Scientologist in the entertainment industry. He allegedly goes about it very scientifically, maybe with charts, graphs and algorithms designed to create the perfect composite.

How this “lucky” gal will feel about him is of course up to debate, but he doesn't seem daunted. According to the New York Post, he has “strict criteria" for her and she must be brainy and in her 30s.

Church members have allegedly homed in on a friend of “Orange Is the New Black” star Laura Prepon, also a Scientologist, but no name has been released. Cruise was apparently “impressed” with the woman, although he “wants to see who else might be out there.”

Wow, she must be on pins and needles.
