Isabella, Connor & Suri’s dad Tom Cruise was on the Oprah Winfrey show today setting the record straight since the whole jumping on the couch incident in 2005. Tom explains that he jumped on Oprah’s couch because he was caught up in the moment and was just “so in love” with Katie Holmes, he couldn’t help himself. Cruise appeared to understand that the results were not favorable for his career and went on to say,
“I just felt that way, and I feel that way about her. I can’t even articulate it, to be honest. That feeling, that connection. Just who she is and what she means to me.”
Cruise addressed his controversial public statements on psychiatric medications and his public criticism of Brooke Shields for taking Paxil for post-partum depression. Tom said he regrets mentioning her in this way and that they have become “closer” since.
“I was feeling pressed in the interview with Matt Lauer. 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.” [Tom’s opinion now] “I think the parent should be able to and should make that decision.”
Tom went on to say he feels misunderstood and that he has made a few mistakes along the way.
On Suri, “she’s spectacular. She really is just magic.” We couldn’t help but swoon over the pictures of cutie-pie Suri on the walls of their country home. This interview was a lot less dramatic than his last visit on the Oprah show. Was it the ‘real’ Tom or the results of good coaching from his PR team?
