In late 1996, Tom Cruise appeared on Rosie’s show. The exchange was over the top and awkward to say the least.
Rosie’s “Crush” on Tom Cruise

I remember watching this as a kid.
Rosie acts little a little dyke!

How old were you at the time, R2? I was 10, but would have been at school when this aired.
This was also right around the time of JonBenet’s murder.

R312 I was 12. Rosie's show was on at 3pm where I lived, and school got out at 2.

Datalounge is slipping; we had to wait a full 2 minutes and zeroes of replies before reply #1 FINALLY dredged up that 14-year-old thread.
Sarcasm aside, it's pretty cool that you were able to find that thread r1.

This is why I was shocked...SHOCKED I tell you, when Rosie later came out as a pussy licker.
I thought "but...but...what about TOMMY?"
I'm still a little stunned. How could "The Queen of Nice" lie to me on national television like that?

Listen, it wasn’t that long ago but times were very different. Rosie played the straight girl with a crush on a movie star because it made her more relatable to her frau audience. Can’t fault her for that.

Before Neil Patrick Harris came out he was gushing about his love for Jennifer Love Hewitt. He went so over the top with it that it sounded phony.

I remember watching this. I remember thinking how ridiculous she acted. Tom Cruise, is just odd.

Oh shuddup, r6. It’s possible to find someone adorable & not want to fuck them. Rosie always had a thing for movie stars & pop singers.
The crush was sweet. She was a comedian TV host. It’s not like she was lying about WMD in Iraq.

Ellen is weirder because she’s an open lesbian but sexualized men on her show for fraus.
Rosie was cute. Ellen putting up Justin Bieber’s naked photos on the screen in front of him with a bunch of old horny women in the audience was creepy.

You sound like a frau. All DLers do is drool over dudes young enough to be their grandsons. What is she supposed to do? Show them a shirtless picture of some old fart.

R19 If Jimmy Fallon posted photos of leaked nudes from a female celebrity like Jennifer Lawrence while she was on the couch humiliated, he’d have gotten his show cancelled.

The weird thing is that lesbians always appreciate male beauty. They never want to have sex with beautiful men, but they do know how to appreciate them.

This clip is probably the most genuine, personable and warm I've ever seen Tammy be. All those kissies for Ro!
Usually with interviewers & hosts he acts creepy, checked out and slightly inhuman with his niceness. This just felt truly sweet in an almost normal way (by his standards).

Remember that movie where Rosie played a dominatrix on some island? Who thought that was a good idea? I think Dana Delaney was in it too.

R25 yeah, it does happen. Theoretical adoration and infatuation ('crushes') are different from animal attraction. Pre-pubescent kids have crushes.
You should hear me talk about male footballers, you wouldn't think I was a goldstar who's repulsed by penis irl. If I was interviewing one of MY stupid team blorbos, I'd be acting giddy just like Rosie here.

Not uncommon at all for lesbians to have crushes on pretty gay mens

Tom gets way too into talking about planes & cars in this interview. Why did he think this audience would be interested in hearing about specifics of that?

I can appreciate a beautiful woman and I don't want to have sex with them, r22. Why is that weird? It's called being objective.

R22 "lesbians always appreciate male beauty." That's bs. Just go to LChat. They find all men ugly and repulsive. It's the gay men that appreciate female beauty. There are more threads on here about beautiful women than there are about men.

It would be weird if you were talking about it all the time on TV when you're closeted about your homosexuality.
And no, it's absolutely NOT "called being objective." Beauty is subjective, as posts on DL show again and again--and which is why we have the old adage about the eye of the beholder.

R37 what's interesting (or, sad and disturbing) is that by today's Tammy Slaton-level definition of fat or obese, Rosie isn't all that big. She's just chubby.

I wouldn't be too hard on Rosie. There is a tradition of talk show hosts having a "crush" on certain guests. It adds a little excitement to the interaction. It's harmless.
Letterman went though a period of having a "crush" on Teri Garr. Later, he had a "crush" on Amy Sedaris. They just had nice chemistry and played it up.

We're talking about being objective about the beauty of the opposite sex in general, r38. I don't want to have sex with a woman, but I can be objective about the beauty of the female form. I've had platonic crushes on the opposite sex. It isn't like Rosie wanted him to do her doggy style.

This reminds me of how much I used to love to watch her talk show like it was always pretty entertaining and she always had really awesome musical guests and I enjoyed her interviews. however watching this it seems like she changed her voice for the show I'm trying to think did she always sound like that while doing the show.

r43 the video is over 25 years old so naturally she would sound different than she does now. Women's voices change a lot after menopause

Mary Harron, director of American Psycho, once claimed that Christian Bale had seen Tom Cruise on David Letterman, and that's what he based his Patrick Bateman on.
I think Harron actually got it confused. Cruise's one time on Letterman, several years before this, he was pretty normal. The timeline of the development of the movie lines up perfectly with THIS interview being the one he used to create Bateman. Even when this first aired, I remember thinking Tom Cruise seemed absolutely insane.
