The pair are having 'a lot of fun'

Katie Holmes and George Clooney soon to be an item? Wow! We didn’t see that one coming.

Mum-of-one Katie, 34, was seen chatting to George at a recent dinner party and snapped hugging him at the premiere of his new film Gravity last week.

The pair are said to have ‘undeniable chemistry’.

Katie has had a crush on him for ages. They’re both single and have met up a couple of times since the dinner party. Katie really has her sights set on him,’ says a source.

‘There is a genuine connection. Katie and George are having a lot of fun. They are enjoying their new flirtation. He’s a fun guy with buckets of charisma and Katie loves his company.’

Katie met George, 52, through her ex-husband Tom Cruise – who she split from last year – and got friendly with him again after he broke up with former wrestler Stacy Keibler in July.

But it’s not just George who she’s been linked to – Katie was rumoured to be dating her Mania Days co-star Luke Kirby earlier this year and Jamie Foxx yesterday denied that they’re hooking up after being seen dancing at an event.

‘[The rumours] are one hundred per cent not true,’ Jamie, 45, told Entertainment Tonight.

‘In fact, it’s quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people.’
