Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have been quietly spending time together for two years, but have yet to actually confirm they are dating.
The 36-year-old actress was caught recently telling the 47-year-old Oscar-winning actor that she “loved him”.
Holmes landed in Los Angeles after attending the Met Gala on May 4 and called him when she made it back to LA.
An eyewitness revealed, “She called him the minute she got off her plane and said she loved him”.
The Ray Donovan actress, who moved to Los Angeles earlier this year (possibly to be closer to Foxx), always gushes over him.
A source said, “She always gushes about how amazing he is. She says he brings joy into the world.”
The source added, “They are using the L word”.
Katie and Jamie first reportedly got involved in 2013 when Katie danced with the Django Unchained star at a party in the Hamptons. They already were friends after meeting through her ex-husband, Tom Cruise.
Katie had been married to Tom from 2006 to 2012 (they have a 9-year-old daughter, Suri, together). Jamie worked with Cruise on the 2004 thriller Collateral.
There have been previous reports that Foxx and Holmes were secretly dating, but Jamie denied the reports.
Foxx said, “Oh come on you guys have been trying to make that stick for three years, we’re just friends. As a matter of fact Anthony Zuiker, creator of CSI, he offered us an animation project and we’re working on that.”
The actor adds, “They have been trying to do that for three years – just stories I guess. You just have to respect – that’s just part of our lives.”
But an insider said Jamie is smitten with Katie and refers to her as “my girl”.
