“They had a special time together partying in the Hollywood Hills and having a good time. Sofia wasn’t really giving the signs at the time that she wanted anything long-term, so she faded out in a totally amicable way and they went keep friends,” the source further alleged.
“It’s always been eaten by Tom who left Sofia and chose Katie.”
in style reported last year that his friend Will Smith set up Cruise with Vegara in February 2005.
The couple was photographed together by the paparazzi on a single date, and the romance reportedly fizzled out soon after.
According to Andrew Morton, who wrote the best-selling tome, “Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography”, Vergara “was dazzled by Tom’s megawatt smile and amused by the blizzard of phone calls, flowers and chocolates that followed their first meeting.”
However, the devoutly Catholic actress soon began to worry that the “Eyes Wide Shut” stud wanted her to convert to Scientology.
“It soon became clear that she was being auditioned for the biggest role of her life: Mrs. Tom Cruise,” Morton wrote. “It was made clear that if he took the role, he would have to renounce his Catholic faith and convert to Scientology.”
“She was fundamentally terrified of Scientology,” one of Vergara’s friends told Morton. “She honestly believed that God would attack her and burn in hell if she joined.”
The reported romance later ended.
