Tom Cruise Talks About His Family on The Late Show, Ryan Seacrest

Tom Goes From Dave to Ryan to Talk About Valkyrie

Tom Cruise made time to sign autographs before heading to The Late Show in NYC last night as he continued to promote Valkyrie after its premiere on Monday night. Dave and Tom took a trip down memory lane, looking at photos of Tom as a high school wrestler, friend of Paul Newman, and of course, a family man. Tom kept talking about his wife and kids this morning on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, where he opened up about Katie's birthday, their holiday plans, and Suri. Here's more:

  • On celebrating Katie's birthday tomorrow: "She's going to be onstage, she's doing All My Sons on Broadway. I've got some things planned tonight, I've been kind of surprising her throughout the week with things . . . I like romance, so you've got to think about these things, you've got to know the right thing and pay attention throughout the year. Know your lady — the flowers, what kind she likes."
  • On their Christmas plans: "We're still kind of deciding, because Kate's here on Broadway and they've only got two days off. I mean, they're doing two shows a day for three days in a row or something crazy like that, so we're still working it. I'm going to finish this publicity. The main thing we know we're going to do is just nice family time and stuff. Kate always sets everything up like that, she loves it. She kind of designs out life, so there's the dinners and cooking and the whole thing."
  • On Suri seeing him in an eye patch for Valkyrie: "The kids always, all of them, they grew up on a movie set, so they'll sit on my lap while I'm getting made up — I like to have them around while I'm creating a character so that they get used to it. But Suri would come up and pull the eye patch off when she was sitting on my lap, she'd come up and take it off but then eventually she got used to it."

He's been all over lately to chat about his movie, and there's sure to be lots more of Tom before its release on Christmas day.

"He SOLD me on the crazy" Shannolyn, that is it, EXACTLY.

He seemed really restrained in that video...and shorter than usual. But he does look really youthful. I was never a huge Tom Cruise fan, but his couch-jumping antics lost me. I saw so many parodies of his crazy Oprah interview and at first I thought they were overexaggerating, but I recently watched that couch-jumping interview all the way through and it was NUTS. He could not stop jumping on the couch, pumping his fists, and grabbing Oprah's hands. I've been in love and I never felt the need to jump on a couch, and I definitely wouldn't do that in front of millions of people.

I can't stand to watch more than a minute of him, he's a little man with a huge ego.

I like he said "The kids, all of them", instead of just mentioning Suri. lol @ Shamontville's comment

He looks like a wax figure in photos these days. He's kinda creepy.

Honestly, I think the general public is just smarter and more aware than they were maybe 25 years ago about what goes on in Hollywood, and they recognize a highly calculated PR campaign when they see one. Tom Cruise might think he is totally selling us the humble regular Joe family guy who just wants to entertain, but the more he tries to convince, the less sincere and most desperate he seems. When he was attacking Matt Lauer back a few years ago on the Today show, he might have come off as loony but at least he delivered it with credibility and great passion. He SOLD me on the crazy. On the normal now? Not so much.

I'd think it's the younger audience who would be more accepting of his crazy antics. I've watched his whole career and enjoyed quite a bit of his early works, but like most people I know in my age range and older, he seems more desperate and crazy as the years go by. There are many youthful antics one could do, but couch jumping just doesn't strike me as one. It seems more like a desperate calculated attempt to seem young at heart, which was obviously misguided. He's been on shaky ground since he fired Pat Kingsley. Biggest career mistake he ever made. Now he's trying to rehab his image to plug this Nazi era film, which is a weird choice for a Christmas release. I doubt it will top the box office. He'd have been better off releasing it a different week to make a stronger showing.

Sugarplum, sorry to disappoint but I'm in my early thirties and have been following his career since Risky Business. Used to be quite the Tom Cruise fan, now... not so much.

Does anyone know what genre this movie slots into? I'm a little confused as to whether it's an action suspense thriller or a suspenseful action thriller? I know it's definitely not an historical drama.

katies a lucky woman to have a guy like tom to love her. i didn't find the couch thing weird at all, i hate people who lose thier inner child and become so legalistic and "this is how society expects me to behave" adult. he was having fun, expressing the greatest thing in life you can find, love! good for him. as far as him having work done, i doubt it but if he has, so what? he's an actor, he needs to stay viable. i think he looks great. also gotta add that i think alot of naysayers are younger people who have been brainwashed and spoonfed the medias interpretations of tom, not the ones his age or older who have watched him since a teen and loved his work the whole time, pre-internet when all there was, was tv and movie theatres. always a fan.

Shannolyn, I agree. I'm sure Tom has had some work done. He looks noticeably different (younger) from just a few months ago.

I've never equated couch jumping with love, at least amongst people over the age 10. Seriously, how many adults jump on their couch in the privacy of their home out of love and glee? Let alone how many would do that in public. The list was milder than all I read about him. I think D-Listed nailed it when Michael wrote: "Isn't this totally the G-rated Disney princess version? If they want the most **cked up things written about his crazy a*s, then they should feast their eyes on the future reader comments for this post. There's your **cking Top 100 list! I can guarantee you.

I like Tom too. I think he is a great actor. I don't care for all of that Scientology mess, but it sounds like he has learned that most people don't want to hear it. I don't see signs of any work Tom has done to his face...but if he does, I hope they fix that nose!

Crazy or not, I still love Tom. And I was thinking the other day that I think he looks like he's aged naturally.

That was a very tame, watered-down list of the Top 10 Craziest Things People Say About Tom on the Internet. Hee. They left out an awful lot! But, as with all things Tom Cruise, I'm sure what would be allowed and what would was all drawn up in a million lawyers contracts first. Probably why David Letterman looked less than thrilled. Cruise likes to keep very tight control of his public appearances, especially now while trying to carefully reconstruct and redeem his image. He was definitely coached and instructed to make it seem like he has a great sense of humor about things--since that's where he went wrong last time with his botched public relations. Has anyone seen that blind item about that big movie star who suddenly looks ten year younger? I think Tom is definitely looking like he had some things done. He looks different than he did just a few months ago. And finally, I think all the talk about romance is mostly just that. Talk. Hee. To me, he has a weird asexual vibe.

He makes me very uncomfortable. He was actually a guest- star in a nightmare I had recently. Too much popsugar.
