Date: 1st June 2001
TOM CRUISE has been spotted on a secret date with NICOLAS CAGE's estranged wife, PATRICIA ARQUETTE, according to Britain's THE SUN tabloid.
The 38-year-old Hollywood idol and Patricia, 33, were seen giggling and drinking cocktails at the trendy CASA VEGA Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles.
Multi-millionaire Cruise filed for divorce from his wife, MOULIN ROUGE (2001) actress NICOLE KIDMAN, in February (01).
A fellow diner says, "Patricia and Tom were sitting in a back corner booth around 8. 30pm. Margaritas and a bowl of chips had arrived and Tom and Patricia were giggling. Tom was dressed all in black and Patricia was wearing a long peach dress with a slit up the side. There was no doubt this was a date"
"Patricia kept talking about the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL and Tom seemed to be hanging on her every word. They seemed totally taken with each other. "
However, Cruise's spokeswoman PAT KINGSLEY denies the reports. TRUE ROMANCE (1993) stunner Patricia is being divorced by CON AIR (1997) actor Cage, 37, who is citing irreconcilable differences. (KW/WNTSU)
