Katie Holmes' love life is heating up. Tom Cruise’s ex-wife, 41, was spotted passionately kissing 33-year-old restaurateur Emilio Vitolo Jr. while dining at Peasant in New York City on Sunday, according to Daily Mail, which obtained images of the steamy moment.
In one photo, the "Dawson's Creek" star is seen sitting on the lap of Vitolo Jr., who is the son of iconic New York City chef Emilio Vitolo. Her arms are wrapped around his neck and she is staring intensely into his eyes. In a second photo, the pair are seen locking lips.
Holmes and Vitolo Jr. fueled dating rumors when they were recently seen together at the Antique Garage in Manhattan. Their romance comes a year after Holmes reportedly split from Jamie Foxx following a six-year on-again-off-again relationship. Prior to that, she was married to Cruise, who she divorced in 2012.
In a March interview with InStyle, the actress opened up about the "intense time" she experienced following the split.
"That time was intense. It was a lot of attention, and I had a little child on top of it," Holmes said.
In a separate interview, she admitted that she shed many tears after the divorce.
"I cry all the time. I do!," she said, according to Mirror, but added that she refused to let the experience "define her."
"I don't want that to be what I'm known as. I was an actor before, an actor during and an actor now," she said. "I don't have any fear now, I don't have a lot of rules for myself, and I don't take myself that seriously."
