Tom Cruise Returns to the Today Show

by at . Comments

More than three years after he famously called Matt Lauer "glib," movie star Tom Cruise admitted on Monday's Today show that he "came across arrogant."

"After looking at it, it's not what I had intended," Cruise told Lauer. "That's one of those things that you go, 'I could have handled that better.' I didn't communicate it the way that I wanted to communicate it. That's not who I am."

Cruise said he isn't done publicly talking about Scientology or expressing his views on controversial social issues. But only at the appropriate times.

"I just think there's a time and a place for it," he said. "But when people are tuning in to hear about my movie, that's what I'm here to talk about it."

Rocky II, it wasn't. The star was downright humble this time around. Click to enlarge more Tom Cruise pics on and behind the scenes of the Today set ...

Tom Cruise Quotes

I was feeling pressed in the interview with Matt Lauer. For me, my issue was really about child drugging. It's not like it is today, like people are really kind of openly talking about this.

I can't even articulate it, to be honest. That feeling, that connection. Just who she is and what she means to me.
