Tom Cruise stays on the couch, in control on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

April 12, 2013|By Greg Braxton

Tom Cruise may be one of the most controversial movie stars ever. His divorce from his third wife is tabloid fodder. Books and articles about his Scientology beliefs and how they affect his personal life have been escalating in the last few months.

But Cruise stayed in the movie-star comfort zone Thursday during his visit to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in a studio within throwing distance of a Scientology center. Dutifully promoting his new film "Oblivion," their conversation was complelely edge-free.

The actor recalled his recent visit to Ireland, where two women gave him a gift that chronicled his family tree. He talked about his appetite for engaging in perilious physical endeavors on vactation.

Kimmel gushed over Cruise being a true, old-fashioned movie star. He then gave Cruise some everyday lines to say in movie-star fashion, such as "Can I get the soup, and the salad?" The smiling Cruise was a good sport all the way.
