Tom Cruise Reels It In, Calls His Rant “Arrogant”
Tom Cruise met with Matt Lauer on the Today show, where he called his 2005 interview (that one that controversially covered antidepressants, Scientology, and psychiatry) “glib” and said that he was going to reserve his Scientology talk for times when he’s not discussing his films. Can we get a “hip-hip-hooray”?
Tom even admitted that he thought he sounded “arrogant” during his last Matt Lauer encounter, saying:
“I’m here to entertain people. I thought about it a lot. It’s a subject matter that was important. After looking at it, I really thought, it’s not what I had intended. In looking at myself, I came across arrogant. I absolutely could have handled that better.”
Regarding Scientology, Tom told Matt that ”I think there’s a time and place for it. [But] when people are tuning in to hear about my movie, that’s what I’m here to talk about.”
Is this a whole new Tom, or at least the one I actually had a crush on (unthinkable!) pre-Vanilla Sky?
