TOM CRUISE is a three-time loser in marriage, but insiders say “Mad Men” star Elisabeth Moss is a perfect match!
A union between the “Mission: Impossible” hunk, 51, and 31-year-old Moss, who’s also a Scientologist, would likely please Church of Scientology officials. “Friends think it would be great for both of them – and Scientology,” said an insider.
According to the source, church leaders would probably “be delighted to have their leading member become involved with another celebrity Scientologist.”
By all indications, Tom and Elisabeth – called Lizzie by friends – would make an ideal high-profile couple.
“Lizzie is beautiful, smart and a little quirky,” said the insider. “She can hold her own in the spotlight, and marrying Tom would be good for both their careers. She has no children of her own and would be an ideal candidate to have one with Tom.”
The popular actress – who plays Peggy Olson on AMC’s 1960s hit advertising drama – was briefly married to former “Saturday Night Live” star Fred Armisen. But the couple split after just eight months in 2010, with Armisen admitting he was a terrible husband.
Meanwhile, Cruise has endured three failed marriages – to Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes. Sources say he’s been lonely and is now ready for a self-assured, younger described as “very mature.”
“Lizzie is on the verge of breaking out in Hollywood,” said a close source. “She would be a perfect complement to a superstar like Tom.”
And Tom is overdue for a new romance. He hasn’t had much luck since Katie Holmes shocked him with court papers in 2012 and asked for sole custody of their now- 7-year-old daughter Suri.
The actor was said to have briefly fallen for Jessica White, a gorgeous 29-year-old model and Scientologist, although his reps denied it.
“Tom volunteered to be Jessica’s personal Scientology tutor, but nothing jelled between them,” said the close source. “Tom misses the companionship of a woman.”
As The ENQUIRER reported, the aging actor is sensitive about appearing over the hill and feels a younger woman would help him with younger audiences. Sources also told us that Tom even resorted to accompanying his 19-year-old deejay son Connor to clubs in a mostly futile effort to meet women.
But pals are optimistic that things could work out with Moss – especially since she shares his beliefs.
Cruise admitted in court papers that ex-wife Katie filed for divorce at least in part so that Katie and Suri could leave Scientology, “but since Lizzie is a Scientologist, there would be no issues about raising a child in the church,” noted the insider.
