Cher Talks About Romance With Tom Cruise When He Was A 'Shy Boy'

In a taped episode of 'Oprah' set to air next week, Cher says she was 'crazy' about Cruise, and talks about on a particular 'long night' they spent together.

In excerpts released by the show, the now 61-year-old singer tells Oprah that says she dated Tom Cruise when she was 39 and Cruise was just a 'shy boy' at 23: "He was so wonderful. And I was so crazy about him. And he was so, like, different. He was a shy boy. He didn't have any money."

"He said he felt like such a boob in school and nobody talked to him. We went on a date once for dinner in a New York restaurant and the waitress was from his old school."

"He told me she never talked to him back in school, but now he was recognised he got all her attention."

Had it not been for the demands of their careers, "it could have been a great big romance because I was crazy for him," she says. The affair is thought to have ended when Cruise met Mimi Rogers, who later became his first wife.

The episode, which also features Tina Turner, airs May 8 but Tom Cruise will be making his own appearance on the show this week as Oprah celebrates 25 years since 'Risky Business', Cruise's first big hit, and goes one-on-one to discuss Cruise's childhood, wife Katie Holmes (photosKatie Holmes photos), daughter Suri, and Scientology.
