• Wednesday night in London, Tom Cruise fulfilled that basic human need by dining at Scott's, a restaurant in London.
• He did so in the company of Penelope Cruz, whom he dated from 2001-2004, and Salma Hayek.
• Cruise exited the restaurant with a red lipstick stain on his cheek.
• Both Cruz and Hayek were wearing red lipstick that night.

The rest is a mystery worthy of Jessica Fletcher.

Did they order fish, which, according to the restaurant's website, is "responsibly caught from sustainable sources?" Were there strained glances and empty silences, filled with the bittersweet memories of romantic gestures and unfulfilled promises? Probably they just ate dinner and talked about the weather. "Cold in London this time of year, eh?" "Sí."

Cruise and Cruz began dating in 2001, after co-starring in Vanilla Sky together. Hayek and Cruise have not starred in a movie together, however Cruise did produce Ask the Dust, which starred Salma Hayek and Colin Farrell. All these years later, Cruz is married to Javier Bardem, Hayek is married to the French businessman François-Henri Pinault, and Cruise is married to the Mission: Impossible franchise; he's currently in London to film the fifth installment.
