It is perfectly acceptable in the tabloid world to link two people together as dating even if they have barely been in the same room together
. In fact, I think that is the only actual requirement. At one point in time, they have needed to be a in a room together so they could canoodle and have a bunch of fake quotes and move on. However, it also has to be plausible. If Tom Hanks was single, he would not go out with Paris Hilton. No one should ever believe otherwise. He is more of a Hilary Swank kind of person and if he was going younger, then probably Ginnifer Goodwin maybe. You could see those pairings. Well Life And Style Magazine said this week that Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are dating. They have been in the same room together so that works. They have filmed movies together, so even better. But, and this is a very big but, it makes no sense. Cameron would never date Tom in a million years. This is a woman who is on record as saying she will travel for c**k. She obviously enjoys a little fun now and then, and I don't think she is going to get what she needs or wants from Tom. She is not going to let someone control her. She is not going to stop smoking pot. If you are going to do a Tom Cruise is dating someone story, make it someone believable. It needs to be a C+ lister. I'm thinking television show. A couple of the cast members from 90210 come to mind. I could see him trying to convince Leighton Meester. It has to be someone who is not too famous because he needs to be in charge of their career. It is not going to be someone like Amanda Seyfried, because she is on a roll and not going to listen to him.
