Cruise Accompanies Cruz to Premiere

Penelope Cruz showed up at the premiere of her new movie, Captain Corelli's Mandolin, with a certain someone: Tom Cruise.

The pair walked arm-in-arm down the red carpet at Monday's premiere as they posed for a multitude of cameras. Earlier in the day during a taping of NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the 27-year-old actress nodded in agreement when asked whether she was dating Cruise.

Leno asked her how she deals with the media attention surrounding her romance with Cruise.

"I think you manage to find ways to live your life," Cruz said. "With this, I don't have a problem saying this is true. I don't want to get into details because it's something I want to protect and I am very happy about."

Cruise, 39, arrived alone last week for the premiere of The Others, which stars his ex-wife, Nicole Kidman. He was one of the film's executive producers.

Cruise and Cruz started dating after working together on Vanilla Sky, Cameron Crowe's romantic thriller which opens in December.
