Tom Cruise: Dating is low priority

Tom Cruise says dating is a “low priority” for him right now.

The 51-year-old Edge of Tomorrow actor has been a single man since divorcing ex-wife Kate Holmes in 2012.

Tom’s career is hectic currently and he’d rather put all his energies into completing his work to a high standard.

“[Dating is a] low priority. I’m just focusing on my movies,” he told Extra.

“I got Mission: Impossible 5, I got this… head down seven days a week.”

Tom claims he is so out of touch he doesn’t even know what is happening in the lives of his friends.

The star admits he didn’t even know George Clooney became engaged to Amal Alamuddin in April.

“I did not know that… you guys know this stuff. I don’t track this stuff. Congratulations, George. Way to go,” he said.

Tom has been divorced three times and he has three children with his ex-wives.

He has most recently been romantically linked to Orange is the New Black actress Laura Prepon, but claims they were dating have been vehemently denied by the stars’ representatives.

Tom is currently promoting his new movie Edge of Tomorrow, a sci-fi picture about a soldier who gets caught in a time loop that sees him play out the day he dies on the battlefield endlessly.

He recently spoke about how brutal filming this action-heavy feature was on his body.

“I was bleeding – I got slashed by the metal,” he recalled to People magazine in a joint interview with Emily. “But that stuff happens.”
