After the tour, they got down to business, and here are some highlights from their buzzed about conversation:
- Winfrey sat on his couch and said, "I'm on your sofa now," referring to his previous appearance on her show. Cruise added, "And we're sitting."
- She ask him if he could take back his famous couch jumping would he? He responded, "It was a moment and it was real ... I just felt that way... that was just how I felt."
- When Winfrey asked about his Today show appearance where he blasted Brooke Shields for taking drugs postpartum, he said his words came out wrong and added, "I'm not trying to tell anyone how they should lead their life," and referring to Scientologists, "we're here to help."
- Winfrey asked about the rumors that Suri isn't his child, Cruise responded, "I've had a lot of books written about me. When someone compares your daughter to Rosemary's baby - it's one thing to come after me, say stuff about me...But when it comes to my family, my children, that's when I went, `This is off the chart.'"
