This morning, Channel 7 reporter, Amy Parks aired her ‘exclusive’ interview with Tom Cruise on Sunrise.
It was however, the awkward wrap up to the interview that was the standout moment (not Cruise’s starring role in a reboot of The Mummy).
Amy warned Sunrise hosts David Koch and Samantha Armytage as she introduced the interview saying, “Maybe I’m getting a little bit embarrassing now, and my Tom Cruise-related behaviour needs to be restrained,”
For the most part, Parks’ chat with the Hollywood star went off without a hitch. The pair had met two other times and had a friendly rapport through the interview.
But when it was time to bid the star farewell, things took an awkward turn.
“Well, it’s always good to see you Tom Cruise, and catch up like a couple of old gals.”
Old Gals? Awkward!
Cruise graciously brushed off Parks’ awkward slip of the tongue, shaking her hand and thanking her for her time.
As the Sunrise hosts cut back to Parks she is looking rather red faced about the whole chat.
“See, I told you it’s embarrassing, isn’t it?”
“You two are mates,” Armytage offered.
“I really enjoy his company — you can tell in that one,” Parks said sheepishly.
