According to a source, that feeling hasn't been mutual, as the mom-of-two, 46, has been "begging him to stop flirting with her."

The two stars reportedly knew each other before crossing paths at the May 7 event, but when Cruise ran into her, he became "giddy" over their interaction.

"He came away convinced they had a real connection they needed to build on," the source said, noting that on the other hand, Shakira was just acting cordial.

"She doesn't want to embarrass or upset him, but there's no attraction or romance on her part — she was just being friendly," the source explained. "She's flattered but not interested."
