Tom Cruise  swung by the Late Show in NYC last night as part of his promotional tour for Jack Reacher. While on the show, Tom seemed a bit scandalized when host David Letterman  dropped the f-bomb on him unexpectedly. Tom and Dave started their interview discussing having "the talk" with their kids, and Dave revealed that while he hasn't addressed sex yet, he's already had a conversation with his son Harry about dirty words. Dave explained, "I said, 'Harry, do you know dirty words?' And he says, 'Well, I know the s-word.' . . . And I said, 'And the f-word?' And he said 'F**k.'" The f-word was bleeped on the show, but it sent Tom into a fit of laughter. Tom said, "I'm just thinking, someone's got the plug — and they're pulling it [on this show]."
The past week has been a busy one for Tom, despite having to cancel his Jack Reacher premiere in Pittsburgh  due to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. The Pittsburgh premiere , which was supposed to take place last Saturday, has been rescheduled for Dec. 19. An NYC screening and event honoring Tom that was supposed to take place yesterday has not yet been given a new premiere date. The film will hit theaters on Dec. 21.
