Does "Star Wars" star Daisy Ridley have a new man in her life? A Nov. 4 report from MailOnline claims that Daisy is dating her "Murder on the Orient Express" co-star Tom Bateman. One of the producers on the film, Judy Hofflund, was being interviewed at the premiere and said, "Something kinda happened with Tom and Daisy… but that's public news, right? I should keep my mouth shut." The 25-year-old actress and the 28-year-old actor were the two youngest cast members in the Agatha Christie drama but when pressed for more news, Tom claimed that the producer was just trying to "create a buzz" while Daisy refused to comment on her personal life. Daisy said the reason she is so cagey is because of advice she got from the late Carrie Fisher, who told her, "'It's hard to date once you're a 'Star Wars' star because you don't want to give people the ability to say, 'I had sex with Princess Leia.'" Daisy previously dated childhood friend Charlie Hamblett. We will be keeping our eyes on these two!

A Nov. 2 report from TMZ said that though Maria filed for divorce six years ago, Arnold "is not taking the necessary steps to end the marriage." Meaning their divorce still hasn't been finalized.
