    Default Excerpts from the Tom Cruise & Oprah Winfrey "He's Not Crazy" interview

    Tom Cruise to Oprah:
    "I Have Been Misunderstood"

    Friday May 2, 2008


    Harpo Productions, Inc.
    In the first part of his interview with Oprah Winfrey (airing Friday), Tom Cruise reveals that he jumped on her couch in 2005 because he was so in love with Katie Holmes and couldn't contain himself.

    Winfrey confessed that the incident caught her by surprise.

    "When we finished that show with you jumping up on the sofa, I was like, 'Wow. What was that?'" she tells him in an interview in his Telluride, Colo., home. "I had no idea it was going to turn into an international brouhaha, as I'm sure you did not either."

    She even confesses, "I was a little nervous coming up this morning, I have to admit, because you and I have not sat down for a real conversation since the sofa incident."

    Cruise tells Winfrey, "I just felt that way, and I feel that way about her.

    "I can't even articulate it, to be honest," he adds. "That feeling, that connection. Just who she is and what she means to me."

    Of the negative response to his couch jumping, Cruise says, "It just kind of kept going.

    "Those things I kind of go, 'You just have to take in stride.' It just kind of became a confluence of things."


    ON ATTACKING MATT LAUER

    He also opened up about his 2005 interview with Matt Lauer (Cruise attacked the anchor, calling him "glib" during a chat about psychiatry and the use of anti-depressant drugs).

    "I was feeling pressed in the interview with Matt Lauer," Cruise says. "For me, my issue was really about child drugging. It's not like it is today, like people are really kind of openly talking about this."

    (Cruise now says of medicating children, "I think the parent should be able to and should make that decision.")


    ON SLAMMING BROOKE SHIELDS

    He says his comments on post-partum depression "came out wrong." (He slammed Brooke Shields in the same 2005 interview for taking Paxil to treat post-partum depression following the birth of her daughter Rowan.)

    "What I regret is even discussing Brooke in any way," Cruise says.

    He says the incident has brought the two of them "closer" (Shields attended his 2006 wedding to Holmes.)


    ON BEING A SCIENTOLOGIST

    Cruise dodges Winfrey's question about whether he feels people negatively target him because of his Scientology involvement.

    "It's a minority religion, and I think that sometimes people misinterpret [it]," he says. "I think the best thing is for people to read about it themselves. I believe people have the right to choose what they believe in.

    "The code of Scientologists says you respect the religious beliefs of others," Cruise adds. "That's part of being a Scientologist, and that's who I am as a person."

    In January, videos leaked online of Cruise at Scientology events discussing the religion. He says the footage "was stolen. I was receiving an award that evening for global literacy. It was a very private moment. I'm actually talking to my congregation."

    "It's [taken] totally out of context," he adds.


    ON BUYING A SONOGRAM MACHINE FOR HOLMES DURING HER PREGNANCY

    Cruise says he and Holmes took great pains to keep her pregnancy private. "We went in the middle of the night, and we were very excited -- this is such a private moment," he says.

    "My life was already a zoo," he says. When news leaked, "it was off the charts."

    As for purchasing a sonogram machine for Holmes, Cruise explains, "When you're having a baby, you just want it to be as safe and as easy as possible."


    ON KEEPING SURI HIDDEN FOR SO LONG

    Lots of rumors spread about their daughter, Suri, because the couple kept her hidden after she was born. Some blogs speculated that the child was deformed. That talk, Cruise says, was "hard to hear.

    "We just want to have our baby, have the kids and everyone get to know Suri, get the family up here and just chill and have that time that you never get back," he explains. "You don't ever get those moments back."

    On waiting three months to publish her photo in Vanity Fair in 2006, Cruise says, "Kate and I didn't feel any need to [rush] it. We said, 'Why? It's our family.' We just were on Suri time."


    ON DAUGHTER SURI

    "She's spectacular," he says. "She really is just magic."

    His two children with ex Nicole Kidman, Connor and Isabella, "were really excited."


    ON HIS MARRIAGE WITH HOLMES BEING FAKE

    "That's laughable to me," Cruise says. 'You just know that they're trying to sell it and spin it."

    He says Holmes' Catholic family has welcomed him.

    "They're amazing. I love them," Cruise says. "You see why Kate is such an amazing woman -- incredible integrity and strength. They're family."


    ON RUMORS THAT HE HAS PUSHED NICOLE KIDMAN OUT OF THEIR KIDS' LIVES

    "No, that's ridiculous," he says. "We share custody. That's what it is."


    ON HIS REPUTATION

    "Listen I, I feel like definitely things have been misunderstood, and there are things I could have done better," Cruise admits. "But then there's also that world where you go, 'Oh, it's been spun to such an extent that ... that's a truth also.'

    He continues, "Knowing when and where to communicate, I think that's important.

    "A lot of times I was nervous giving interviews. Or I wasn't sometimes as comfortable about things. And I realized that it's okay.

    "There's stuff you have to just let go," Cruise adds. "I just have to do the best I can."

    I'm calling bullshit on several things, and this is one of them. TC MADE his life a zoo with those antics, couch jumping, interview spewing. Then to claim that he suddenly wanted to make his life private is BS.

    Did you see on the previews for this show that SS makes an appearance? WTF?

    Missing from the transcript of the meeting is the Crui$er's intense stare, mumbling/fumbling for the right words and "catch phrases" and the long silences before he answers any question. I'm sure the editors will patch things together so he at least sounds coherent. In the TV advertisements promoting the show today, she's asking the "tough" questions, and he looks like a deer in the headlights. He also looks like he's ready to lose it at any moment. Can't wait to see it.

    "I was receiving an award that evening for global literacy."

    This makes me laugh more than anything. He can't string a decent sentence together without a script..

    How does that gel with Scientologists removing all non-Scientologists from their lives?

    And as far as keeping the pregnancy under wraps, is he fucking kidding? Or is he just taking the mickey out of the entire world.

    2005 was Crazy Tom Time and it looks like he's about to blow again soon, captain.

    Scripted to a T.
    He basically says every single "crazy" thing he did was a mistake. Yeah right, Tom. OWN your crazy. That's why you make Hollywood more fun. It wouldn't be as exciting/scary without your crazy, insane, wide-tooth smiling, intense-staring ass! OWN THAT SHIT, you crazy ASS!

    His congregation? His? Is he a preacher man now?

    I love that his "religion" is tolerant of others....so much so that they get labelled SPs and kids are forced to severe ties with parents.

    Most of America will fall for this BS but I hope a good percentage sees through it.

    Oprah has 2 million followers, if she says bend over and kiss Tom Cruises very ample ass they will and thank her for the idea.

    He sat there on national TV and said "there is no such thing as mental illness" He wasn't tricked into it or forced to say it, he never said anything about kids. I don't care if he and Brook Shields swap spit. His entire foundation of scientology is based on the belief that there is no such thing as mental illness. If you think you might have it go to Tom and he can cure you. Talk about glib, that little sock stuffing toad.. my sister in law is seriously bi-polar and my family has panic disorder. When he says crap like that I want to shove a cattle prod up his butt and zap him everytime I get zapped with a panic attack, let him know what it feels like.

    Since both have stated they are Gods or God like did anyone see any halo's?

    ^^ I don't know how many will buy into his BS. I think he jumped the shark and it is too hard to come back after that.

    Don't you mean jumped the sofa?

    Its very evident that when he went all CoSBatShit, his popularity dropped faster than LiLo's panties at a DJ Sam shindig.
