Cruise Roasts U.s. Tv Host Lauer

Tom Cruise made a shock appearance at U.S. TV host Matt Lauer's Friar's Club Roast in New York on Friday (23Oct08) - three years after the pair clashed in a controversial interview.
Following roast tradition, Cruise mocked the Today show host - his 'revenge' after they rowed on air in 2005, when Cruise aggressively defended his opposition to psychiatry and anti-depressive drugs.
The actor insisted he was over the incident, making light of his own public scrutiny: "Matt and I talk two, three, four times a day... You're the one who told me to talk about Katie Holmes on Oprah!"
Cruise continued, making fun of Lauer's day job: "I get to go from international locations to movie sets to more international locations to international location. You have found happiness doing the same thing everyday. You sit on a couch all day and interview the car from Knight Rider and cook radishes with Rachael Ray...
"I can't believe I flew all the way out here...lose my number, you glib putz."
But the tables turned on the movie star when Lauer launched his own insult, adding before he left the stage - in reference to Cruise's height:
"Why don't you sit down? We'll get you a booster seat!"
