After divorcing Katie Holmes earlier this year, seems Tom Cruise and the forces of Xenu are already interviewing replacements.

First up: a 26-year-old restaurant manager. With whom he's already desperately in love, of course.

The pair met when Cruise dined in her NYC restaurant Beauty & Essex on Dec. 16 and the half-his-age Cynthia Jorge “handed the superstar her card” at the end of his meal.

That's the classy version of a "happy ending," you guys.

Cruise, already smitten, “called Beauty & Essex at least twice trying to track down Cynthia — and was ‘put on hold for a very long time’" before finally getting a message to her. We imagine the hold up was because they either thought someone was impersonating Tom Cruise, or they knew it was Tom Cruise. Take your pick.

Jorge and Cruise were spotted the next night at the Chinatown club Le Baron, where Tom “was mesmerized” by her beauty and they later danced the salsa.

“Tom looked like a pro ... At one point, they began grinding together. It was straight out of ‘Dirty Dancing.’ Tom seemed to be in his own world, completely smitten,” the source who almost certainly wasn't on the Scientology payroll added of the dry-humping couple.

As a final romantic gesture (in addition to the outer-course), Cruise “made sure a private car was waiting outside the club to get her home safely. It was obvious ... he’s enamored with this woman.”

Wait, what? How is putting someone in a car and sending her home "romantic"? Whatever happened to getting a nice hotel room first?

Sheesh. Kids today.
