Tom Cruise is known for being a bit unpredictable in interviews, from couch jumping to somewhat aggressively telling journalists when they’re “stepping over a line”. But an interview with our own Andy Lee managed to take the radio host completely off-guard.
The new Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation cast member was out promoting the show when he told News Corp of how a 2008 interview turned the 55-year-old into his favourite celebrity guest.
The actor was promoting his new film Valkyrie – which Lee’s fill-in co-host and best friend ‘Horgs’ hadn’t actually seen. So they were off to a good start. And it only got worse when they learned that was all they were going to be able to talk about once a strict no-go list came through from Cruise’s publicist.
“His publicist comes in and goes ‘there will be no questions about [his ex-wife] Katie [Holmes], there will be no questions about [his daughter] Suri, there will be no questions about Scientology,” he told News.com.au
At this point, Lee wasn’t sure what he was in for, but he wasn’t expecting Tom Cruise – a Hollywood megastar – to ask about his love life with then-girlfriend Megan Gale.
