Cher opened up about her past romances with “Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohan, admitting that she dated Tom Cruise in the 1980s, and ranked the actor in her “top five” best lovers list. Can you believe they actually dated?
Cher And Tom Cruise Dated In Mid-1980s
In a segment called “Truth or Cher?” Cohen asked the “Believe” singer whom she would rank as her best lover.
“A lot of them kind of came in first,” Cher diplomatically replied. “I’ve just had the greatest lovers ever.”
“Where does Tom Cruise rank on that list?” Cohen asked.
“He was in the top five,” Cher said. “It’s not a long list, just a good list.”
Cher described her former sweetheart as a “great, lovable guy,” and told Cohen that their relationship had gotten “hot and heavy” back in the day.
However, Cruise, who Cher dated in the mid-1980s, wasn’t the only paramour Cher dished about. The star also told Cohen that she had a lesbian fling.
“Oh God, who hasn’t. Yeah,” Cher said, when Cohen asked if she had ever been with a woman. “I stole a horse when I was 13, you know, so why wouldn’t I?”
Cher dished about her romance with Cruise in an interview with Oprah in 2008. Back then, Cher said, Cruise was still getting used to stardom.
“He was shy,” she said. “He said he felt like such a boob in school and nobody talked to him,.”
“It could have been a great big romance, because I was crazy for him,” Cher said.
Nowadays, Cher prefers to keep mum on her love life, she told Cohen.
“The moment anyone knows you have a boyfriend, you don’t have a boyfriend because it’s just too hard,” Cher said. “People don’t want to be hounded to death.”
Cruise has declined comment, but he certainly has his own romances going on now that he’s single again.
