All this gossip about Tom Cruise and Cher having a secret romance back in the 80’s is way off base. It was NEVER a secret! Cher and Tom were seen necking on a couch at a party at Paul Newman’s house. (Tom and Paul became friendly while filming the 1986 movie “The Color of Money”) Partygoers couldn’t help buzzing. Cher was quite smitten with 16 years younger Tom. After that scene, the paparazzi were all over them and magazines were full of photos of the odd couple while the short romance lasted. We think Cher’s unfortunate choice of wigs damaged the relationship. The top photo was taken at a White House event and features Tom and Cher as well as Bruce Jenner.
