Tom Cruise & ex Penelope Cruz have awkward moment at pre-Oscars party
The pair, who had a three year relationship after meeting on the set of Vanilla Sky in 2001, were both guests at Creative Artists Agency boss Bryan Lourd’s pre-Oscars house party on Friday night - but an onlooker told the New York Post that Tom was seemingly less than delighted to bump into his ex.
The onlooker explained that Tom was talking to other guests when the Spanish actress approached: “Penelope tapped him on the shoulder and timidly asked, ‘Tom?’
“Tom turned around, got visibly flustered and awkwardly said, ‘Oh, hey. Hi,’ and gave her a small, distant hug before turning back around to his friends. It was weird.
“He clearly hasn’t run into Penelope very often since they split.”
Penelope picked up the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award last night for her performance in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. She is currently dating Javier Bardem.
