Tom Cruise opens up on couch incident
Melbourne: Hollywood actor Tom Cruise has opened up about his bizarre couch-jumping incident during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The 47-year-old actor was reportedly jumping up and down on the couch chair expressing his love for Katie Holmes at the Oprah Winfrey Show.
Cruise said he was confused by the repercussion over his erratic behaviour on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2006, when he jumped onto Oprah’s on set couch to express his love for Katie.
This incident led to the cancellation of Cruise’s contract with Studio Paramount Pictures after 14 years, reports The Daily Telegraph.
“There was a confluence of events,” Cruise told Esquire magazine.
“My deal with Paramount was up and it wasn’t extended. At first it was, Huh? I don’t get it, but people have misconceptions about that whole thing, too,” he said.
Cruise said that he was just trying to please the show’s audience.
“What happened happened. I wanted the audience to be happy just like I wanted to make my sisters and my mother happy when I did those skits as a kid, but I’ll take responsibility for my actions,” Cruise said.
“It felt like being the new kid in the schoolyard again and the other kids are whispering and whispering about you and suddenly you hear what they’re saying, and you think, what? That didn`t happen. Look at the reality of the situation,” he added.
