Hot off the rumor mill: Tom Cruise is madly in love with his co-star on Mission:Impossible 6, the 28-year-old Vanessa Kirby. According to people in the KNOW, Cruise was impressed with her work in the TV show The Crown, and wanted her cast in the next Mission Impossible franchise. Once he got her on set, they had ‘instant chemistry,’ it was alleged. That led to her getting the role right away, it was claimed. Again, this is all hearsay.
